Dorm Room Design Day

Today a few of my fellow bloggers and I are teaming up to bring some inspiration to those students who are gearing up for college this fall. Here is a little concept that I put together for the student who is feminine, fun and a little flirty. 

1. Every new college student needs a little prayer to make it through exams, boyfriend drama, roommate drama etc. I love this print from Perissom and Pink. 
2. Pillows are a fun way to brighten up a room that you can’t paint in. I love this teal pillow from Etsy. 
3. This girly ruffle pillow adds the perfect feminine touch. 
4. My husband and I couldn’t paint in our first apartment but I still wanted to add some color to our room so I adhered a large ribbon to the wall using clear tacks. It run all along the room just under the ceiling and it looked like I had painted it on! In this room I would add a large navy ribbon to the wall. 
5. Travel posters remind students to dream big and to explore life. What better place to follow your dreams than New York
6. I love this other travel poster as well. You can get some great ones on Ebay
7. I envision this photo clip hanging right in the corner. It’s the perfect way to display pictures of all your new college friends! 
8. A desk lamp is a must for late night studying. These ones from target are so fun and a great deal! 
9, 12, 13. I would keep the bedding pretty simple. A simple white duvet and pink sheets. Dress up the bed with a great and colorful quilt folded up at the bottom. 
10. One essential you’ll need in a dorm room is something to cart your laundry around in. This ruffle bag from Urban Outfitters will have all your roomies jealous. 
11. A small rug is a great way to make your dorm room feel more homey. I love this one from Urban Outfitters!

    Very cute! Do you have any suggestions for cinder block walls? I have very dorm-worthy decor in my office at work and would like to change it up.

    I absolutely love this dorm room inspiration. I cannot wait for a few of my little cousins to go off to college in the next couple of years. They don't know it yet, but I am totally going to help them decorate!

    So many great dorm rooms & yours is so fabulous too. I adore the ruffles, the posters all the way down to the UO rug. Terrific job and will be forwarding this link to my incoming Freshman who is @ college for orientation. Great blog!
