How To Decorate Your Dorm Based On Your Personality Type.

What does your dorm decor say about you?

With acceptance letters rolling in from Universities, it is never too early to start thinking about dorm decor. We get it, you don’t have a lot of space to work with, and you may or may not know your new roomie, but your dorm decor should be easy (and fun) to pick out. It will be based on your personality, after all!

Whimsical, soft and feminine, eclectic, minimalist, quirky, or all neon everything…the list goes on! Check out some of our favorite dorms and decide which look is right for you.

The Minimalist

The minimalist look will feel light, airy, and have clean and tasteful touches. Some of our favorite minimalist looks include lots of white with highlights of black, gold, blue or even a subtle red. Add in decorative pillows with a splash of color, and use storage whenever possible!

Must-Have Items: Vertical space for storage, wall safe photo hangers or adhesive, decorative lights, and lots of plants!

Boho Chic

Whimsical, dreamy, with prints and soft palates, are every Boho girl’s dream. Bold patterned rugs are balanced out by neutral, soft pillows and hanging fixtures. Before move-in day hit antique shops and yard sales to find hidden treasures that will make incredible accent pieces.

Must-Have Items: Floral or Batik-Print comforters, Moroccan-style accent pieces, muted accent colors for sheets, dreamy drapes, bright desk storage, and macrame woven wall art.

Roll out the red carpet like the Queen that you are with your glam dorm decor fit for Megan Markle herself. Choose your color scheme of bright or blush pink, white, gold, and everything and anything that sparkles. Throw in some extra plush pillows, soft throw blankets, and girly headboards (DIY will do!).

Must-Have Items: Fake flower arrangements, plush pillows, pink and gold accent pieces like picture frames and lamps, soft and feminine throw blankets, and an elegant mirror.

You are adventurous, spontaneous, and not married to one style in particular. You are eclectic and your decor should show the glam, bold, printed, and exceptionally unique parts of your personality. With this style, you can mix and match to your heart’s content! Choose a printed bedspread and enhance the look with bright highlights and bold patterns.

Must-Have Items: Sky is the limit! Purchase boldly patterned sheets and mix and match the accessories. Lightning bolt pillows, neon picture frames, wicker baskets for desk storage, animal print, you name it!
