Dorm Makeover with Dormify
If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you know that we have been totally crushing on Dormify lately. Dormify is a company that sells everything you would need to decorate the COOLEST dorm on campus (literally everything). ALL of their products are completely “on-trend” & have us thinking, “where the heck was Dormify when we went to college?!” Plus, any company that was created and is run by a Mother-Daughter Duo gets an A++ in our Playbook.
Long story short, we heart Dormify so much that we have decided to team up with this amazing company in the Fall to makeover a very special dorm room! We want this room to be unique, full of personality & inspiration, and most importantly… a place to make memories for a very special girl in our lives.
Before we get to our plan for this room, allow us to tell you a little bit about the
girl young lady behind this dorm project. Grace is the younger sister of one of our good friends, Terry. Terry was the best man at Casey’s wedding, and we’re both very close with his entire family. And to make things even crazier…Grace is actually a former student of Bridget’s! We’ve watched Grace grow up over the past decade, and cannot believe she is heading to college in the fall. Man oh man, the thought of that makes these two rookies feel very old.
Since Grace is such a special girl going through such an exciting time in her life, we know we have to make this room ah-mazing. We put together this mood board using products from Dormify. The hard part wasn’t picking products, but more so trying to narrow down which products we should choose– Dormify has so many great looks to choose from! Plus, Grace will be rooming with one of her good friends from high school, so we wanted to make sure the look was one that both Grace and Francesca would love. The good news: they approve of the mood board and can’t wait to get started preparing for the Fall!
Beyond choosing the Dormify decor alongside Grace & Francesca, we also assigned them some DIY homework to complete over the summer. <– Grace probably thought her homework days with Bridget were over (last assignment, I promise Grace!!). We just couldn’t resist, plus we think a few small projects could be the perfect bonding opportunity for the soon-to-be roomies!
We can’t wait for the fall and will keep you guys updated along the way. If you have a special college student in your life, you have to check out Dormify and let us know what you think. All of their comforters are reversible, so you get two looks for one price tag AND you could coordinate with your roomie without being too “matchy-matchy”. And keep your eyes peeled, Dormify is also being sold in select Macy’s stores!
And for those college girls who love being trendy, but may not have the “eye” for home decor…Dormify recently released dorm packages…. they’ll send you the whole look (literally everything) for one price tag. Could you imagine if all home decor companies started doing this?!
Grace & Francesca, see you in the fall on campus! <– don’t forget to bring that homework.
