You’re going to spend a lot of time in your dorm room this year, so why not make it into a space you love? Be creative, pick pieces that reflect your personal sense of style and (above all) have fun!
Select pillows that show your personality and unique style and your dorm will definitely start to feel like home! Accent pillows give you the opportunity to add pops of color to your room. Mix in different prints and textures to add interest!
Brighten up your space with a rug that complements your bedding and wall décor. A textured or patterned rug will contrast with your other décor pieces and help set a warm, welcoming vibe for your space.
The blank, white walls of your dorm room are a perfect place to display photos of friends and family, art pieces you love and even mirrors! Just be sure to use Command Strips (found at major retailers like Meijer and Target) so you don’t damage the walls.
Your bed is the first thing someone sees when entering the room, making bedding an important way to make a personal fashion statement. Adding comfy bedding in your favorite color can help make your space feel more like home.
