Emily and Merritt UCLA Dorm Makeover
Behind the Design


In honor of Back-to-School, we hosted a special Instagram #PBdormMakeover giveaway with UCLA and we had 3 lucky winners! This summer our team headed to Hedrick Hall to give these sophomore roommates a total dream room with an exciting and chic dorm room makeover featuring our newest Emily & Meritt Dorm Collection. Why UCLA you might ask? Designers Emily Current and Meritt Elliott went to school at UCLA and it was at this special place that they decided to partner and start their very own business.

Each roommate had unique styles so we used a variety of prints that both mixed and matched with each other by decorating with one color pallet; black, white and gold. We love the way our Cabana Stripe ComforterBed of Roses Duvet and Painted Dot Comforter came together perfectly!

The next step was adding golden accessories that would take the room to the next level. We opted for the Emily & Meritt Bow Chair and Bunny Task Lamp.

To add a light and bright feel, we draped some eye catching Origami String Lights along the desk for those late night study sessions. We also decided to add our Emily & Meritt Canvas bins in our Petit Rose and Painted Dot patterns, perfect for storing school supplies! Bath necessities are a must for Dorm move-in, and our Emily & Meritt Critter Towel Set adds a little fun while also being functional.

The reveal is always our favorite part of makeover takeovers, the girls were surprised and loved their new room!

This makeover goes to show that just because you are working with minimal space doesn’t mean you should sacrifice an ounce of style. Click to watch the full makeover takeover and show us how you are styling our designs in your dorm room by using #mypbteen.
