If you’re at all like the rest of the internet, you’ve probably had Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” on repeat for weeks. And now, with “Please Please Please” taking over the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Hot 100, it’s clear Carpenter’s here to stay and to slay. 

Carpenter’s star turn is thanks not only to her incredible voice and infectious melodies, but also to her style. The “singerrrr” seems to be leaning into the classic pop-princess vibes for this latest era, but — just like her lyrics — with a definite modern edge. 

We rounded up some dorm decor pieces inspired by the “Espresso” music video to turn your room into a pop paradise. Channel Carpenter’s confident beach aesthetic in your own room design, and you’ll warm up even the chilliest of campuses this fall.

“Say you can’t sleep? Baby I know, that’s that” boring bedding! (What, isn’t that how it goes?) This floral sheet set from Urban Outfitters will have you napping peacefully in a field of orange and mint hues all semester long.

Pattern mixing is almost as hot in the design world as Carpenter is on the charts right now. Mix those floral sheets with this beachy-striped duvet set from IKEA.

Chamberlain Coffee

Don’t forget the actual espresso! Emma Chamberlain’s brand, Chamberlain Coffee, has released a candle that not only looks like their delicious blend, but also smells like it.

Nespresso’s new collab with Pantone, the limited-edition Vertuo Pop in Mandarin Orange, “invites you to immerse yourself in a vibrant world of color and summer nostalgia” with orange and ivory hues. I mean, is this machine not “Espresso”-era Sabrina personified?

BAGGU doesn’t just do bags – their towels are some of the softest, plushest, and most adorable on the market right now. This smiley set’s summery colorway is straight out of Carpenter’s retro beach world (and don’t miss the matching bath towels).

Just like Carpenter, Jellycat is taking the world by storm. So meet your new roommate, the Amusables Espresso Cup.

Last but not least, I’d be remiss not to include the hottest iced-coffee keeper on the market this summer. This Stanley tumbler in Matcha Cream is the perfect size for backpack bottleholders and won’t take up too much space on your desk. Fill it with that iced espresso (or your favorite caffeinated drink of choice).
