Dorm Decor


College. The adventure continues. Home away from home. “Dorm rooms” are notoriously small, a bit institutional and just begging for personality. Not to worry. Now there’s so much out there to make it yours with boundless options that go way beyond the peach crates we used to stack for shelves. The wiser the better when merging form and function…ya gotta fit a lot in a small space. Choose your style, then choose design elements that will function in that world. We found some some ideas that are also budget-friendly.



This globally inspired look mixes a boho pattered print duvet with natural woven elements. A natural wood nightstand with storage shelf can also be painted or waxed. Seagrass baskets are a great source for storing bath towels. Hide your cosmetics and other essentials in plain sight in this handmade hanging pocket storage unit. The best part is that you can easily tote it back home or to the bathroom. The desk/nightstand/work lamp also has a built-in wireless smartphone charger.



Round woven ottomans can be used for a make shift desk or stacked in multiples for extra seating. Make yourself comfy studying on a plush soft rug.



Wall art. An ever-changing gallery featuring your friends, family and adventures. LOVE this idea of mixing fairy lights and Polaroids.



This great little gadget prints images from your smartphone. Great tool to save great memories for your gallery wall.



Let your pillows talk. College can be tough so it’s good to keep good vibes close by. Sleep/study in comfort and style while you are learning how to make your dreams come true.


Thanks to Ikea, Urban Outfitters, Pinterest, and Society 6 for the content/photo inspiration.
