Decorating your dorm room can look like a massive task, especially if this if your first time away from home and you finally have free reign to express yourself in your own little space. But you don’t have to major in interior design to create an organized yet stylish dorm room. Here are four dorm room styles to get your creative juices flowing. From bold bohemian to geek chic, you’ll be sure to find a few essential items to add to your study space this fall.
If you’re in touch with nature or perhaps a little wild at heart, you might like the bohemian vibe. Find a bold, brightly patterned bedding set to set the tone of the entire space. String lights will help give your room a nice cozy feel when you can’t enjoy the natural sunlight. Decorate your walls with a vibrant tapestry that you can use as a headboard or even hang from the ceiling. This bird cage card holder can display photos of all your friends, new and old alike. Concrete dorm floors can be cold and uninviting so warm things up with a colorful rug. Hang a few succulents for an earthy vibe and prop your feet up on this striking storage ottoman when it’s time to relax. Lots of dorms have rules about candles, but you’ll be fine with these mercury glass LED candles which will add the perfect glow to your room. (See all products with Cash Back)
Ready to keep things classic and chic? Start off with a white ruffled bedding set that is equally cozy and classy. A personalized storage tray gives you a place to keep all your keys and wallet or a place to display your perfumes. Add some dazzle with a sequined pillow and tealight votive holders. Keep the gold theme going with this metallic print pillow and framed magnet board where you can hang your favorite photos or keep a list of things to do. Space can be an issue in dorms so add a shelving ledge set to give you more room to display all your favorite keepsakes. Finish off your chic room by hanging these adorable lace paper lanterns.

Coral decor adds to the ocean loving theme as does this ship wheel wall mirror. Weathered looks are key for the vibe like these house lanterns and anchor wall plaque.

If you’re a Star Wars fan, this Darth Vader alarm clock will make sure you’re never late to class. Add a dry erase board world map if you love to travel and stay organized. Light your room up with a natural salt crystal lamp or stargaze at night with a star lamp projector. Show off your super hero love with Iron Man 3D lenticular wall art or jam out to your favorite records with a portable turntable. If you find yourself cold, snuggle up with a Gryffindor throw or hang it on the wall to show your house pride. (See all products with Cash Back)
