College living essentials from Galleria Dallas

For many, this year’s back-to-school prep involves leaving home for the first time. But there’s no reason to leave the comforts of home behind! Dress up your space with these affordable dorm room must-haves from Galleria Dallas.




Personalizing your college apartment (or dorm) is the first step to making yourself at home, and incorporating some of your favorite colors is an easy place to start. We love this VIETRI Marea decorative glass vase from Belk. The cool blues are super fresh, and its large size can easily accommodate a sizable floral display. For an accent that’s both decorative and comfortable, check out the City Sac from Lovesac. It’s compact enough to fit easily into an apartment or dorm and comes in a variety of colors and fabrics to match any decor. Who says studying shouldn’t be comfy?

Whether you’ll have a full kitchen or just a mini fridge, there’s one thing every college student relies on: caffeine. Fuel those late-night study sessions with fresh-brewed tea using this small teapot with infuser from Le Creuset. Its diminutive size occupies minimal space, and the included infuser allows you to enjoy loose leaf or bagged tea. We recommend the A.M. Essentials Morning Tea Sampler from Teavana. It comes with oolong, black and green tea varieties, so you can start your day fresh or continue your night strong. Plus, green tea is loaded with antioxidants, so you’re getting a health boost with every sip!



Young adults are supposed to get seven to nine hours of sleep a night. College complicates that somewhat, but you can still spend whatever shuteye you do get in style with the Rizzy Home “Knots” comforter from Nordstrom. It comes in a variety of soft colors, as well as twin, queen and king sizes, so you’re covered for dorm room or apartment living. Add a decorative pop of color and pattern with the Sloane ikat pillow cover from Pottery Barn. Consider combining different colors for a funky, eclectic look.



It’s possible to make a shared bathroom feel homey with the right accessories. Turn every shower into a spa day with the Hotel Collection waffle weave bathrobe from Macy’s. It’s absorbent and comfortable, made from soft cotton, and it’s machine washable, which is a college must. Complete the spa experience with the eucalyptus mint White Barn candle from Bath and Body Works. The subtle scent makes it perfect for shared spaces, and the three-wick construction and vegetable oil wax means it’ll burn for up to 45 hours.

Good luck out there, coeds!
