1. Be Yourself: The most important tip is to make sure your design speaks to who you are. Incorporate pictures and designs that show your personality and design taste.

2. Focus Point: Choose one larger piece to build the rest of your wall around. This will help to both ground your design as well as make positioning each additional print a whole lot easier.

3. Use Creativity: Be creative with the layout. Snap pics of different designs to help you choose your favorite look!

4. Add Variety: Don’t stick to just one type of medium; rather use a collection of art, photos, prints and souvenirs. The more you mix, the more of an eclectic feel you will get.

5. Framework: It’s all in the framework! For a more collected look, use frames in the same color and style. If you would like a more “salon” feel, use different finishes such as a combination of metals and wood.

The Best Dorm Decor Ideas Ever

8 Winning Dorm Room Ideas

BoringDormRoom-we-are-the-independentsYour college dorm room is going to be your home away from home during school, and getting it up to snuff will be one of your first challenges of college life. Upon arrival, it will be a grim and barren space, void of any charm or warmth. Fret not – you are fabulous and your dorm room decor will be, too! Here is a round-up of some of our absolute favorite DIY dorm ideas to get you started on your decorating path.

1. Add photos of your friends, family, pets, and happy memories to the walls. Don’t let rules about tape, tacks and nails stand in the way of your pictures. WallPops peel & stick frames bring your gallery to life without damaging the walls. The room will start to look like your own and seeing those familiar faces will help you through homesick moments.

2. Warm up the room with curtains and a rug. Accessorize those cold bare floor and invite the comforts of home. A rug and curtains will cozy up any dorm room, and are also beautiful opportunities to add splash of color and pattern to an otherwise sparse space.Dorm Ideas for your DIY dorm college decor3. Maximize storage! Your dorm room will most likely be small and you will want to keep it as neat and tidy as possible. With a packed schedule of classes, studying, and a social life, you won’t have a lot of time to clean. Add underbed storage and outfit your dorm with shelves to take advantage of vertical space. Get ottomans that double as seating for friends and clever places to stuff your stuff.

4. Decorate your walls! You are not allowed to use nails, screws or tacks, let alone paint your dorm walls. We consider art to be one of your dorm essentials! Have fun with peel & stick wall art, your RA won’t mind a bit and your college decor will be the cutest on the floor.

5. Change the lighting. Don’t settle for the overhead fluorescent lights that your dorm room comes equipped with. These glaring brights are anything but natural. For late nights studying and long evenings spent in your dorm room with your roommate, you will want to create a more inviting glow.
