We are so excited to bring you another dorm makeover post from our favorite collegiate blogger, Miss Kate from A Lonestar State of Southern. Today Kate is sharing a few tips when it comes to decorating your dorm room!
Undoubtedly, one of my favorite parts of starting a new semester is decorating a dorm room. I love change, so any opportunity to spruce things up is a golden one to me! I’ve always had the best luck building a perfect room scheme with PBteen (do you remember my sorority house room tour?) and this year was no exception. I chose a white and blue palette to give my room a classic but cozy feel, and couldn’t love the results more! A few tips I wanted to share when it comes to decorating…
Tip one: Try to decorate your walls as much as possible. You don’t want anything too cluttered or chaotic of course, but adding tasteful accents like these Paper Wall Organizer to walls makes a room automatically feel more cozy and lived-in. Bare walls are bleak in my opinion!Tip two: Stick with a consistent color scheme. Since dorm rooms are definitely on the smaller side, sticking to two or three colors keeps a room looking peaceful and inviting. I chose grey, gold and PBteen’s signature pool color.
The grey Heart Sequin Pillow adds comfort and shimmer to your dorm and can be mixed and matched with pool decorative pillows. I never miss the opportunity to monogram for the perfect touch in my room. I love the long neck on the Task Lamp and that it matches my laptop!
Tip three: Finally, having a mini fridge is so worth it. I had one last year for the first time, and immediately wondered how I went without one for so long! For lunch, I’d eat a smoothie and fresh turkey – all of which I could store in my mini fridge. It was a healthy alternative to other convenient (fried) alternatives, and one that was still delicious!
This fridge cart is perfect for storing all of your snacks and doesn’t take up too much room–just gives your mini fridge height!Adding Metallic String Lights allowed for a little extra sparkle, which I love!
I know many of you are starting school this week and the next, and I’m wishing you the best of luck for an amazing year! I hope today’s post provided a little inspiration for your home away from home. If you’re moving into a dorm room or sorority house this year, I’d love to hear how you’re decorating it!
