Dreamy Dorm Rooms

Tips and Advice

College students everywhere are settling into their home-away-from-home dorm rooms this fall and trying to make a trend-setting style statement on a dorm room budget.

I was recently asked “If you could go back in time to your first dorm room or apartment with the decorating expertise you have now, what changes would you make?.” What a fun question!

Here is a dreamy dorm room design that is funky and fun, a perfect place to study or have a get-together with friends!

Bedding set from Macy’s; mirror, side table, and floor lamp from Modani Modern Furniture; ‘Tech Tools’ bookends and ‘DeLonghi’ cordless kettle from Amazon; butterfly chair from Walmart; area rug from IKEA; alarm clock from Bellacor; storage ottoman from Kohl’s

I love the bright, cheerful colors, the stylish functionality of the storage ottoman, the side table that can slip over the bed for a late-night snack or laptop table, and the articulating arm on the floor lamp for a perfect reading light. The butterfly chair comes in a wide range of colors and folds up when you don’t need it.

How would you decorate your dorm room differently if you had it to do over today? Are you helping college-age children make that perfect new nest this fall? Check out my pinterest board for more fun dorm room styles.
