EN-LIGHT-ENING: For the room that has everything, the Madison lamp from Williams-Sonoma Home is a luxurious choice. Its circular keyhole design, in creamy-rich alabaster or stunning oiled bronze, is sure to draw envious stares from all of your guests. $495, available online or through the Williams-Sonoma Home showroom at The Shops at Legacy.
BRIGHT IDEA: Paisley-print Rita Pillows from Crate & Barrel will summer-up a sofa like that. In swirling bright orange, fuschia, teal and yellow, they’re $19.95 online and at area Crate & Barrel locations. And p.s. -- Rita has lots of colorful, affordable friends.
STUDY BUDDY: Nobody does up a dorm like Ikea. The Scandinavian superstore is a one-stop-shop for all things fun, functional and affordable. Check out the handy Back to College checklist and Back to School shopping ideas online, then head to the Frisco location to load up. (We're particularly fond of the Morrum cabinet, a steal at just $99.)
