Dorm Room Tapestry

Probably one of the best dorm room hacks is this dorm room wall tapestry. Wall tapestries and a photo wall are the cutest things for girls dorm room decor.

Most dorms can't be painted, so this can cover a multitude of ugliness.  Yellow is a trending color, and this pattern is the definition of a boho chic dorm feel.

And think about adding an area rug. See how much more cozy this room is for college students when you add a rug.

Student Housing Fairy Lights

Hanging a tapestry on the ceiling is brilliant!  This sunflower tapestry adds so much life to any dorm room by brightening up space.

Dormcy has a great program as well as cute tapestries.  For every tapestry sold, Dormcy pledges that we will plant ten trees in a forest that has been devastated by deforestation!

And don't forget to add fairy lights to your dorm room essentials. Another good idea that adds sparkle to your college life.

Dorm Color Scheme and Bed Skirt

A headboard might seem out of reach for a dorm room, but they add a touch of home to an otherwise stale room. Deciding the look and pattern of your headboard can set the color scheme for the room.

Accenting a navy blue and white room with gold gives a girls dorm room a touch of sparkle.

Dorm Room Art and Gallery Walls

Popular dorm art for girls

Dorm room art will turn those not so attractive walls into a home away from home. Etsy is loaded with printables that can be stuck to your walls with what student housing approves. Use one large piece of art as a statement piece or group together lots of prints and photos to improve your dorm life.
