Dorm Room Design Day

When a reader, Tenia, e-mailed me asking if I would participate in "Dorm Room Design Day" I gladly said "yes"! However life has been c-c-c-razy (I know I say that a lot but it seems to never change) and I ran out of time to do an inspiration board. So...not wanting to be a complete party pooper I did pull together some inspiration for all those heading for dorm life. Starting with color...if you can paint your dorm room I say go for a bold color choice. You are young, free and in temporary housing, go BIG while it is fun.... Instead of boring bookshelves think outside the box for storage. A funky piece or painted piece like the one below would look great....
You will need a chair and I definitely say go for pattern....
Speaking of seating these poufs are cute and perfect for extra seating when friends are around...oh and let's not forget a fun rug....
I wish statement making headboards were around when I was in college. Tall and tufted makes me smile every time...
Dorms can feel so sterile...adding a little feminity never hurt....oh and lucite works great in a small space...
Don' t be distressed by a cramped room, good things come in small packages...
A gallery wall of favorite things can make home feel a little closer...
Or go for some large art, it doesn't have to be fancy to have style....

Thank you Tenia for asking me to be a part of Dorm Room Design Day. All the images here are from Domino. For more inspiration be sure to stop by these blogs all participating in DRDD...
