Going off to college can be an exhilarating time! No reason your dorm room shouldn’t
radiate that same feeling. Add a Little Pep to Your Dorm Room with some of these great ideas:
BRIGHT COLORED COMFORTER OR SIMPLE WHITE
When it comes to decorating your dorm room there are a lot of different directions you
can go. One good rule of thumb is to select your comforter first, as comforters with
lots of color or a pattern can set the tone for the rest of the room.
If you decide on a white comforter, its always fun to find some accent pillows or
throws to add a pop of color & really define the feel of the space.
You don’t have much room in your dorm so you will want to maximize on any space you do have.
Depending on your personal needs, you will have different spaces that are key. Maybe it’s making
your desk a multi-functional space for working & a fashion hub. Perhaps you need your morning
caffeine or you will make your roommate miserable…a tabletop coffee station would be ideal.
The shelving unit below is a great option for the avid reader.
Throw pillows can really pull your entire look together when it comes to your dorm room.
It’s a great way to pull in additional textures or highlight some of your accent colors.
Plus, if you get tired of them, they are an easy accessory to switch out.
We love these monogrammed beauties!
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
Think fun when you think lighting! Maybe a few strands of string lights or a bright colored task
lamp can change the whole atmosphere in a room. Many dorm rooms have stark walls that can
easily be illuminated with a warm light and really change the entire mood of a room.
