Dorm, Apartment, and Home Decor From JCPenney

When I first met my husband, he was in college and living in an apartment. Let’s just say that his decorating skills are not what attracted me. But if anyone wants to know how to make a television stand with cinder blocks and shelving boards, let me know. If you’re interested in attractive dorm, apartment, and home decor, then you’ll love my finds from JCPenney.

Be sure to check out the End of Summer 3-Day Sale going on now through the 20th.

If your child or grandchild is attending their first year of college, they will get to experience dorm life. You will want to make their space as comfortable as possible to help with any homesickness. A shower caddy and a fan are MUST HAVES, and a small refrigerator would be a blessing in the middle of the night.

Apartments are different than dorms and have more rooms to decorate. The bedroom is the place they will spend the most time, so you want to make it cute and comfy. I love this Floral Quilt and multi-colored Rectangular Accent Rug combination. This would be perfect for my guest room. I would ask my husband what he thinks, but since there aren’t any cinder blocks, I doubt he would have an opinion. Lol!

Oh, my!!! I love everything about this bedroom decor!!! The Terracotta is soothing, and the neutral jute rug and throw pillow would look great with any decor. The Tufted Throw would be great for snuggling, or thrown on the bed as decor.

Calming and soothing are how I would describe this bathroom decor. I love the soap dispenser and toothbrush holder. They look perfect with the tile bath rug.

If you want new kitchen things, then give your old stuff to the kids for their place. Lol! If you’re paying for it, then you should be the one to get the new dinnerware set, Instant Pot and NutriBullet. Am I right???

If your closet looks like mine you might need these Closet Organization items. I love using flocked hangers since my clothes stay on them better. And I’m in BAD need of the 2 pc. drawer organizer since my bras and undergarments are strewn everywhere.

It doesn’t matter if your children or grandchildren are moving out on their own for the first time or if you want a refresh; JCPenney has everything you’ll want or need.

  24. Connie Ester says:

    Congratulations on your Son Coaching! I know how excited you must be🥰 I really enjoying these options from this JCPenney post.
    However, I really like the Bamboo Shoe Rack. And I’m needing to replace mine but it’s in my garage. 🤔Is that designed to be in the garage? There isn’t anything about that on JCP site.🤷🏻‍♀️

    1. Connie, I’m sure this is for indoor use. It would probably work if it is enclosed

    2. Christiana Idoko says:

      This post is so inspiring, I what your son is doing coaching the young ones in their games.

      The decorations ideas are great though I’m not in the US, I’m in Nigeria,I will use this idea to work on my spaces.

      Thanks a lot Tania

    I love to shop at JCP! It has been a store I have shopped at forever! I remember pouring over their catalog many years ago; first circling the toys I must have for Christmas, then as a teenager picking out my ‘designer’ fashions.

    Now….I am a true JCP shopper in my late 60’s buying for the Grandkids school clothes (and cashing in the deals myself! haha.
    Thanks for keeping it real Tanya, I look forward to your advice and posts daily!

    1. I used to love going through their catalogs too. 🥰

  28. How exciting for you, so fun to watch grandkids play sports! You both have got to feel so proud of your son starting as head coach how cool is that! Enjoy every second of it!
