To give your dorm room a seasonal makeover, incorporating these festive autumn colors gives a warm and cozy look.

From subtle additions to full transformations, you can create a fall wonderland in your dorm.


Make sure to use these colors in your fall dorm decor!

Fall Asleep

The boldest way for you to fall-ify your dorm room this season is by transforming your twin XL bedding. Your comforter’s color and design sets the tone for your dorm style; after all, there isn’t too much space inside dorm rooms. Bright fall colored sheets, comforters, blankets, and throw pillows will revamp your entire room into a festive fall environment.


A Fresh Take

An easy way to incorporate fall colors into your dorm is by changing out your extra-large towel sets. When you’re in charge of doing your own laundry, having extra towels on hand is never a bad thing. Play around with orange, yellow, and red towels to give your dorm bathroom a seasonal look. You can even go the extra mile and get seasonal themed hand towels for a festive appearance.


Brighten Up the Place

If your dorm building allows it, try experimenting with colored string lights. Colorful red, yellow and orange lights will radiate fall colors all throughout your room. Many stores sell Christmas lights all year round in a variety of colors. String the lights on the walls, around your bed, door frames or windows for an awesome touch.


Deck the Walls

Now that you’re all settled into your new dorm room, you can dress up your walls however you like. For a fun fall feel, try finding dorm wall art with oranges, reds, and yellows within them. Kick your fall wall art up a notch and search for paintings or photos of trees and leaves. You can change up your wall art all year round to keep your style seasonal.

No matter how you decide to do it, decorating your dorm room with fall colors will give a festive look and a home-like feel. Being away from home and all the seasonal decorations you grew up with can be hard during the holidays, but decorating your new abode with colorful fall decor can really lift your spirits all season long!
