Creating your dream dorm room

Friday, July 21, 2017

As I was going through old pictures I realized a while back I planned on doing a dorm decor post, and I had taken a quite a few photos of my college dorm! So, since it is never too early to start planning for fall I thought I'd share my decor with you! If you're going to college soon, or if you're already in college, hopefully this will give you a bit of inspiration! It can be so hard to make a bland dorm room feel like home, so I have a couple tips that just might help! 

You will be spending A LOT of time in your bed (probably) so focus on this space first! Make sure you have a comfortable mattress, trust me you will not regret splurging on this. Secondly create an inviting and beautiful space to wake up to everyday. The first thing I see every morning is my banana leaf tapestry, bringing in that tropical greenery, which is well needed in the dead of winter... 

As someone who is easily stressed, I knew I wanted to create a calming and inspiring space for myself. I think the best way to achieve this is through the colours and textures you're using. This is why my colour scheme is mainly blues, greens and neutrals. Paired with the faux fur pillows and rug it gives of the perfect cozy yet chic vibes (yes I just said vibes, deal with it). 

Next I would put energy into creating a beautiful desk space! Odds are you're going to be spending a good amount of time studying here, so make sure it's visually appealing and inspiring for you! 

I hope this inspired you and gave you a few ideas for your own decor! I will probably do an updated post in the fall, and give you all the details on where to shop for your dorm room!
