Now, the main thing about dorm rooms is the theme. We know with boho style dorm rooms, we can use neutral and cool colors to balance out positive vibes, or a beachy theme would consist of bright colors with some neutrals thrown in as well.

As for a chic dorm room, using colors that are not too loud, but bring on the right amount of ambience, can help bring together the chic dorm color scheme you are looking for. For a chic dorm, you want to use the right colors that are soft and have a connection to natural colors.
