Embellishing your dorm room with favorite prints and patterns is a gratifying process that many enjoy. It is a time to showcase your DIY skills and revamp an austere room to a creative pad that suits both you and your roommate’s spirits. Check out some tips below on how to choose décor that matches your style.Wall ArtDisplaying your interests through posters and wall decal is a great way to allow others to learn facts about you, and be subtle at the same time. Hang posters of your favorite band, sports team or University City print to add inspiration to your walls. If you are partly interested in changing up the entire look of your walls, check to see if you can add removable wallpaper in your favorite print. If you want to add more artwork, try to create melted crayon canvases to bring about a neat decoration.
