If you love the simple, fantasy-esque style of mushrooms and succulents, this aesthetic is for you.

Meowshroom Velveteen Plush Blanket from Kittie Treats Shop- This blanket is ADORABLE and will add such a cute and unique touch to your cottage core room. We suggest adding it on top of a cream colored comforter.

Meowshroom Desk Mat from Kittie Treats Shop- This mat will perfectly tie in the greens from all the plants with the mushroom kitty.

Succulent Can Glass from Creations By Eliza D- Grab this cup with the lid and straw to use it on the go, or keep it simple and use it to store pens and pencils on your desk.

Mushroom In A Jar Fuse bead Art from Mystic Moon Shop- Grab a Command strip and hang this cutie up to add some fun to those boring concrete walls.

Succulent Coasters from Cs Reclaimed Boutique- We know this is a college dorm and not your mom’s living room, but these are exactly what you need to add in a little sophistication while still being cute and trendy.

Bright and Zesty

Adding in a fresh lemon vibe to your dorm room will tell any guest that you’re a fun and bubbly person to be around right away. A mint or lavender color comforter would match perfectly with all this yellow!

Lemon Verbena Room and Linen Spray from Blushingg – The Wax Co- Birhgten up your dorm with a refreshing scent that won’t violate any rules, unlike candles.

Lemon Lavender Can Glass from Creations by Eliza D- Stay hydrated and on trend with the cutest glass can cups. Imagine these displayed on a little shelf above your mini fridge!


Manifestation HQ

The haters will say surrounding yourself with crystals and good vibes isn’t just as effective as long hours at the library… and your mom will probably agree. Our recommendation? Do both- you can’t ever play it too safe when it comes to finals!

Crystal Skies Tray from Beyond Quaint- Use this tray to display your favorite crystals, or most used beauty products.

Amethyst Mini Suncatchers from Maisie New York- Add a little sparkle to your dorm with a gorgeous suncatcher hanging in the window.

Cheery Sunflowers

Adding sunflowers to your dorm room will give it a warm and inviting vibe perfect for getting to know new friends or cozy study sessions.

Crochet Sunflower Coasters from Orion Homestead Creations- These are so sweet and delicate! Another way you can use this is to hang them on the wall for some added decor. 

Everlasting Love Soap from Honeybear Handcrafted- Who says you can’t bring your dorm aesthetic into the bathroom? This soap is the cutest!

Calm Neutrals

Keeping your room neutral will help create a calm environment for you to soak in all that knowledge.

Inspirational Planner from Brown-Eyed Natural Co- Increase your productivity and decrease your stress and get it together with this 2022 Inspirational Daily/Weekly Self-Care Planner & Tracker.
