If you're looking for a new comforter for college, this will probably be your biggest investment and will be the focal point of your room. This is the one I got last year (except mine was navy). Also, there's no reason to be scared of white bedding in college unless you're spill prone!
Throw pillows can take your bed from bland to Pinterest worthy in the blink of an eye. I love mixing patterns, colors and shapes with these. I have this one, and I absolutely love how soft and cozy it is!
I don't know about y'all, but I always cuddle with a throw blanket when I go to sleep. Although, they also look super cute folded at the end of the bed and really come in handy when you don't want to get under your covers or go to someone else's room. I have this one, and it is super soft and big.
