How to Decorate a Dorm Room


Washi Tape
I've loved washi tape ever since I was first introduced to it about three years ago.  The colorful tape is perfect for any dorm room because it's an easy way to add color.  I have a whole wall of pictures and prints next to my bed that I've hung with colorful washi tape! I love this wall because I can look at pictures of great memories and it makes the room seem like a cozy space!


Having fun art to hang on your walls can really add your personality to the space.  I have 3 gold foil prints on my wall hung with the washi tape.  I found them all on etsy.  Etsy is my favorite place to find prints alongside evelyn henson and design darling!

Having a lot of pillows on your bed can make it more inviting and comfortable.  We all know dorm mattresses are not the greatest, but having lots of pillows can make it a little better.  I probably have way too many on my bed.  Between 4 full sized pillows and 5 throw pillows my bed has become so comfortable.  I have two pillows that I made from Lilly Pulitzer fabric and they add so much color to my bed.  I also have a pillow with my hometown's zipcode on it which always reminds me of home!

I have a few little, yet colorful books on my hutch over my desk right now.  I have open space and they look so great sitting on top of the space.  I love that they add color and still reflect my personality.  I have the Kate Spade Style book as well as a Lilly Pulitzer entertaining book that I found on amazon!
