Casa Craving Challenge: Dorm Room Digs

Every Thursday on CasaSugar, I'll give you a decorating theme and ask you to go Casa Craving for items that fit the theme. (In case you missed it, here's a post explaining what a Casa Craving is and how to create one.)

It's back to school time, so I thought we could help our dorm dwellers outfit their new digs. It's been a while since I was in college, but I still remember the often overlooked pieces that made living in a small space much easier. My secret weapon was an Over-Door Storage Rack ($19.99), which held everything from snacks to socks, and since dorms never seem to have bedside tables, this PBTeen Hi-Lite Clip Light ($35) would also come in quite handy.

What are your essential dorm-room digs? Tell me by creating Casa Cravings for the storage solutions, accessories, and accents you think would best complete the look. I'll feature the results next Wednesday, August 15. Be sure to tag your Cravings with the phrase dorm room digs. Even better, you can create a list of your dorm room digs bookmarks; TeamSugar has a great tutorial on listmaking if you're not sure how. Please let me know if you have any questions.
