I feel a bit (actually a lot) ashamed to confess this, but I watched one episode of the MTV’s Real World Brooklyn, just “to see what their house looks like” (cough cough) and low and behold DP products were everywhere! Fantastic college dorm room inspiration.

The first things I spotted were the DwellStudio Junior Transportation duvets and shams with the Framed Bodoni and Maze pillows as an accent:
