Jul 20, 2017

Here at Mackenzie & Company we like to "spice up" the typical back-to-school supplies and dorm room decor. Why have a dull dorm room, when you can have a Mackenzie & Co inspired one? Below we have round ups of our favorite dorm room and school accessories as well as some tips and tricks on how to upscale your dorm room even more. Your dorm room will no doubt be the talk of the "school" after you follow our advice!

Accenting Your Walls With Fabric:

We suggest ordering a few yards (depending on the space) of fabric to hang on your walls to act similar to wallpaper. This method will not damage the walls and is a great way to bring some character and warmth to your dorm room. We love this fabric: City Toile (Navy/Metallic) Les Fleurs Collection by Rifle Paper Co

Hanging Light Decor:

We Love the idea of hanging a drum shade for extra lighting in your dorm room. Over your bed is a great spot for this lighting accent. A good way to hang a light without marking up the walls too much is using a plant bracket. Then you hang the cord set with the shade attached and your all set!

Detailed Bed Tray:

We love the idea of adding a monogramed sticker to the center of this acrylic bed tray. Bed trays are great for doing homework in bed, especially on those lazy Sundays.
