Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Now that 2019 is in full swing and you’re getting settled back into your classes and the typical day-to-day things, perhaps you’ve noticed a little something creeping up in the back of your mind – you’re totally sick of what your room looks like.  Don’t worry – this happens to the best of us when we hit a new year and we start to get sick of the same-old-same-old, especially when it comes to what we see each and every day.

So how do you go about changing up your room without spending a fortune (since you’re back on a budget for school, anyway)?  The easiest way is to add a fresh coat of paint to your walls!  By adding a new color to your room, it will feel refreshed and entirely new, almost like you’ve never lived in it before.

Thinking of painting your room for the New Year?  Here are the three top bedroom color trends for 2019 to help get you inspired to get going on this super easy DIY project.

 

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO KEEP IT SIMPLE – RICH HAZELNUT

If you’re more of a no-nonsense kind of person who wants a simple update to the color of your room, opting for a warm hue such as Rich Hazelnut is the perfect choice for you.  Not only does this color rarely go out of style, but also it is considered to be an easy-to-match neutral.

This new neutral color requires a minimal update to the rest of your décor and is also a great way to increase the amount of light your room captures, making it appear larger and brighter.  Because of the warm undertones, Rich Hazelnut adds a soothing aspect to your room as well, keeping you comfortable and calm.

FOR THOSE WHO WANT A TOUCH OF OPULENCE – MUSTARD YELLOW

Really want to switch up your room color and make it feel more luxe and opulent?  Mustard Yellow might just be the right option for you.  Don’t let the name scare you away – this modern iteration of classic gold is often more muted than its food counterpart.

This bold and bright color is a great way to add unexpected light and brightness to your room without being overwhelming or causing you to feel stressed.  Mustard Yellow also matches well with other rich colors, such as deep burgundy and plum, allowing you to switch up your décor with ease.

FOR THOSE WHO WANT A PERSONAL OASIS – PASTEL BLUE

Searching for a way to transform your room into a personal hideaway?  The answer is simple – add a little pastel blue to your walls!  This soothing color is calming in every way and is subtle enough to not overwhelm your other décor.

Cool pastel blues are perfect for making your room look and feel larger than it is, reflecting light and creating a light and airy yet expansive environment.  This color also matches well with a wide variety of other hues, meaning that it won’t be hard to pick accent colors for your room and that it won’t clash with the other décor.

2019’s Top Secondhand and Thrift Stores for Those Statement Pieces

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Now that the New Year is in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about a few things.  First, classes are probably starting up again soon and you should probably be getting everything in order for that ASAP.  Second, is your 2019 dorm room and wardrobe up to par?  After all, New Year, new you, right?

 

But updating your wardrobe or your dorm room can quickly become pretty costly if you’re not careful.  How can you update everything without blowing your new semester’s budget completely out of the water?  By hitting up your local thrift or secondhand store, of course!

 

If you’re on a budget or looking for something a little more off the wall for your wardrobe or dorm room, try hitting up a secondhand or thrift store to find the statement pieces you’ve been missing in your life.  Here are our favorite places to shop when we want a statement piece for a price we can actually afford.

 

STOP #1 – THE SALVATION ARMY

OUR FAVORITE PLACE FOR: affordable statement furniture

 

First up on our list is the mother of all thrift and secondhand stores – the Salvation Army.  These locations typically carry both furniture and clothing, and lots of it!  Do some online research and find the largest location near you to hit up for your statement-piece shopping.  With a larger selection of items available, you’ll be more likely to find what you’re after!

 

STOP #2 – GOODWILL

OUR FAVORITE PLACE FOR: statement clothing items

Another one of the classics, Goodwill is always a stop on our list.  From clothing to books, furniture to toys, this place has it all.  And the best part?  The discount days!  Head in-store on certain days during the week to score an additional 25 – 50% off a selection of items.  Who knows – you may be able to snag that killer statement 80’s windbreaker for next to nothing if you play your cards right!

 

STOP #3 – SAVERS

OUR FAVORITE PLACE FOR: statement clothes and home decorations

If you’re lucky enough to have a Savers in your hometown or near your college, make sure to take some time to take a trip here.  While most of the items Savers has in-store are clothes, they do have a pretty decent selection of small furniture pieces tucked in the back, too!

 

STOP #4 – YOUR LOCAL MOM AND POP STORE

OUR FAVORITE PLACE FOR:  statement vintage pieces

Nothing beats shopping local.  Most towns and cities have at least one locally owned thrift, secondhand, or vintage store that you can hit up to find statement clothing and furniture.  Be sure to do your research online before you head out and see what other people are saying about the store before you take the plunge.  Some stores can get very pricey very quickly if you’re not careful!

How to Keep Your Room Summer-Y All Year Round

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

As the summer comes to a close and the cooler fall and winter months slowly creeping come in, it can be hard to hang onto those happy carefree summertime feelings. As the days get darker and colder, so can your spirits.

And, what’s the easiest way to keep yourself feeling bright and active as these hazy days drag on and on, you ask? By keeping your room the same way, of course. Here a few of our favorite ways to keep your room looking and feeling totally summer-y all year round.

TIP #1 – Lighting is Your New BFF

What’s the quickest way to make your room feel like you’re living the good summer life? Up your interior lighting game. Adding more or warmer lighting to your room can really open it up and give it that authentic summertime feel.

Rather than using that (horrible) overhead fluorescent lighting that your dorm more than likely has, look for a floor lamp or even a desk lamp that you can add to your room to warm it up a bit. After all, the brighter your room, the more inviting and open it seems.

TIP #2 – Go for the Brights

One of the quickest ways to add a little summer back to your room is by throwing in some bright, summery colors. Think about it – if your room is all hospital white and navy, you’re not going to be feeling too bright or happy. By dropping a few bright hints here and there, you can totally take your room (and style) up a notch.

Try adding in some vibrant blues, yellows, or oranges in various places and go from there. Little touches, such as a turquoise throw pillow or an electric blue desk lap, can really bring a little summery oomph back to your room. Just avoid overdoing it with the colors or you may start to feel a bit overwhelmed.

TIP #3 – Keep it Scent-Sual

Still not feeling the summertime vibes? Try adding some tasty summery smells to your room! Something as simple as a reed diffuser or a scented air spray in one of your favorite citrusy or tropical scents can really add some vibrancy back to your digs.

TIP #4 – Add a Little Pattern Play

If colors and lighting aren’t doing it for you, you can always add some cool summery patterns to your room to bring that carefree feeling back. Something as simple as adding a poster to your wall with a bold wave pattern or a playful black and white print on your bedding can really add some visual texture and vibe with the whole summertime feeling you’re working to create.

TIP #5 – Throw on Some Tunes

If you really want to liven up the mood, add in some music while you’re chilling in your room. Simply throwing on what you’d typically listen to in the summer can bring back those lifted feelings and have you kicking back. Just be sure to clear it with your roommate first – not everyone may be a fan of your – ahem – unique music tastes.

CLOSING THOUGHTS
Remember, when you’re starting to feel the blues from the darker days and cooler temperatures, you can always turn your room into a summertime oasis. You can totally capture the carefree feelings of the summer all year long with the right lighting, bold colors and patterns, tropical scents, and the right tunes.

How to Add Splashes of Color to Your Bedding

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

dorm room styles with splashes of color

You don’t have to be an HGTV design star to transform your dorm room or bedroom. In fact, all it takes is a little creativity and a good eye for color — especially for accent colors. Accent colors are the shades that pop out against neutrals. They brighten the room and help tell a story. To help you get started with building an accent palette, we’ve compiled our favorite accent color combinations we know you’ll love.

OCM Pink and Black bedding set

Hot Pink and Black

Almost every girl we know has rocked this combination at least once in their life. It’s fun, it’s flirty, and it’s oh-so-easy to do. The trick to upgrading this look from your high school bedroom to adulthood is not going with any crazy pattern combinations. Toss out the zebra print and say goodbye to damask. Solid black with flashes of hot pink is the way to go.

Fire Engine Red and Cream

There’s something about red that reminds us of our favorite beach towel. It’s bright and bold, and it has that little bit of fun that makes it a great bet for your linens. We especially love it in stripes and chevrons. By not going with white as the base, it’s a tad more muted and perfect for a sunny day or a warm night.

OCM Blue and White bedding sets

Vintage Blue and White

Do you remember your grandmother’s teacups? More than likely, they use a shade of blue we could only call “vintage.” It’s a pale sky blue that makes us instantly relaxed. When used in throw pillows or a fluffy blanket, it’s practically inviting the best sleep ever.

Grassy Green and Beige

Get your nature on with grassy green that sings. Green’s not a color that you see around much, especially in the bedroom. But we promise this color is a hit. Go more emerald in accent pillows for a luxe look. Use it in pillowcases or flat sheets and feel like you’re sleeping in a fresh field.

Rose Gold and Pink

We can’t have a post on accent colors without mentioning at least one metallic. Rose gold is the hot color of the year. And outside of your iPhone, it can certainly work in your diva-style bedroom. Go glittery with sequins like in an oversized pillow or add it to a bedside lamp. You’ll feel instantly more luxurious for it.

Burnt Orange and Purple

We’ve never been to India, but this color scheme puts us there. The pop of orange on purple is unexpected, and it takes careful attention to the right shades to work. You’ll want orange in smaller items like vases or desk accessories. Add orange silk sheets or a deeper orange toss blanket. Against the purple, it will surely make a statement.

OCM White and Yellow bedding sets

Sunny Yellow and White

Who doesn’t want to wake up with a smile on their face? A bright yellow room does just that! We love it when white is the only other color present. Think minimal. Then, add yellow in the big pieces — like a funky chair, a set of picture frames, or a lighting feature. This is a look you’ll love.

So there you have it! A list of a few of our favorite looks this year. Do you have another combo that you are looking to pull off or a favorite one from our list? Let us know!

Universally Stylish Linens

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

When you’re in college, life can go by in a blur. With all the hustle you’re going to put in, the last thing that you want to do is worry about if your sheets match or if your bedspread is coordinated with your comforter. Instead of fretting over what’s in style or panicking that your room will never look cool enough, go neutral with color these bedding color schemes perfect for those who want basic — not boring.

Modern Minimalism

For all of us non-decor savvy folks, we’re in luck. This season, minimalism is totally in. The whole “less is more” means no dramatic colors, no clutter, no weird pattern coordinates. Instead, minimalism favors white. If you do add color, go with a throw pillow or blanket in gray or tan. It may sound boring, but it’s a look that looks and feels crisp and modern.

Stylish bedroom with blue hues

Earthy-Neutrals

One step up from minimalism is earth-centered color schemes. Think of the ground, sand, and sea when selecting linens. Every color is muted, but because nothing pops out, it’s easy to coordinate and interchange. Some key colors are sandy tans, rusty browns, hunter or grassy greens, and pale blue.

Vintage Calm

Take a deep breath and relax with a color combo that emphasizes relaxation and simplicity. French blues (a blue that’s a few shades deeper than a traditional sky blue) on white is classic and classy. If you want to modernize it, pick out jersey-type linen in blue and pair it with a softer white blanket or pillow. The mix of textures adds a bonus look to the scheme.

OCM bedding with touches of jewel tones

Touches of Jewel Tones

Some like it hot — hot pink that is! For those who want to keep it interesting and lively, selecting a more modern, simplistic color combo is just not going to get the job done. But instead of going elaborate and making a mess out of your coordinating linens, grab a neutral shade of either black or white. On top of that, add small items to your favorite jewel tone. For instance, we’re digging pastel pink of white or turquoise on black. Have fun and play around!

Royally Goth

Speaking of black, it never goes out of fashion. You can mix black with almost any color, but where it rocks is when it’s matched carefully with its polar opposite — white. Black with white accents (such as black comforters with white lining or black pillowcases with white piping) gives a bed a regal look. It’s a rockstar look at its finest, and you can always layer on a pattern like damask or chevrons to spice it up.

Ocean Inspired

A beach themed bed can be tricky to pull off. It’s a color combo that can go wrong real fast. The trick is to, again, go neutral as your base. White or tan is key for fitted sheets or pillowcases. On top of that, go ahead and layer on the blues. Don’t worry if they’re not exact matches. In fact, go with blues that are far away from one another on the scheme. A light seafoam bed skirt looks great when paired up with a royal blue quilt. Throw in gold or silver touches, and you’ve got a bed to drift away on.

 

Do you like to keep your bed linens a bit more muted? Or do you go all out with splashes of color? These are some of our favorite universally stylish bedding themes. Let us know your favorite looks!

Christmas Decorations for Your Dorm Room

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Christmas decorations on a tree

Seasons greetings! The holidays are almost here, and we are so excited! And sure, we’ve got our minds on vacay, but we’re also dreaming of all the fun ways we celebrate. One of our favorites is decorating. That’s right — just because you live in a tiny dorm room doesn’t mean you can’t get into the spirit. Here are 8 ideas to make your dorm room festive and bright.

Twinkling Lights

The easiest way to give your dorm room a makeover is to change up the lighting. Grab a few strands of Christmas lights and go nuts! Line the ceilings! Make a cool ceiling display above your bed. They’re so inexpensive and easy to find that you can do just about anything with your favorite lights!  

Mini Trees

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a tree! Grab a mini-sized one from your favorite store and add on tiny ornaments. If you’re more of a DIY-er or want a fun party game, you can cut out a large-sized tree and ornaments using felt fabric. Play pin the star on the tree or make ornaments featuring the faces of your friends.

Door Decor

If your residence hall encourages you to customize your dorm door, this is your time to shine! Grab some rolls of wrapping paper and gift wrap it up. Add stockings full of treats for your neighbors or make a chalkboard snowman for friends to write messages on.

Fake Fireplace

You can’t beat a decoration you just turn on! While you can’t have a space heater, mobile fireplace in your dorm room, you can bring in the ambiance by turning your TV into a cozy hearth. Netflix and Youtube offer countless different versions of hours-long fireplace videos complete with soundtracks and carols — perfect for parties or long nights studying.

Snow on the Windows

If you’re a transplant from colder climates or you love the look of snow in the winter, you can make your own using snow spray or frosted aerosol that wipes clean when you’re done. It gives the room a cool, chilly glow, even if it’s still in the 70s or even 80s outside.

Nothing rings in the holiday season like the smell of pinecones

Smelling Like the Season

You can’t talk about the season without discussing all the awesome smells that make you think of holidays at home. From cookies to cinnamon, everyone’s got their favorite holiday scent. Bring in a few flameless candles or use a wax warmer to bring in that homey vibe.

Custom Wreaths

Wreaths are an easy way to decorate your room while also allowing you to show off your personality and creativity. Purchase a base wreath from a crafting store and then use a glue gun to add tinsel, ornaments, pictures, wooden monograms, ribbon, etc. It’s your look, so make it reflect who you are!

Burst of Christmas Color

When we think of Christmas, we think of red, green, and white. You can add these pops to a dorm room with throw pillows, area rugs, window hangings, and wall decor. You can also add jewel tones like silver and gold with ribbon wreaths, desk accessories, and lighting. Visit Pinterest for even more color-based inspiration!

Finals can take their toll on your holiday spirits. Ensure that you enjoy some holiday activities and keep the spirit alive by decorating your dorm room. You can keep it within a budget and have the best room in your hall!

We love watching home remodeling and decorating shows, and we’re big on pinning stylish spaces on our Pinterest feed. But even with all the inspiration and know-how, we still need some help making our plain dorm room go from drab to fab.

Find a Fun Rug

While you may think it’s the bedding that draws everyone into a small space like a dorm room, it’s really the floor! But dorm rooms are notorious for dated linoleum or scratched up tiles. Say no more to cold feet and hideous floors by finding a stylish and practical rug.

ocm-dorm-room-rug

Because they are larger in size, they can really help tie in a look or theme. Like the vintage look? Go with a patterned, light colored rug. Need an explosion of color? Go bold with blue, purple, red, and black. Whatever your look, a rug is the perfect highlighting piece for your dorm room.

 

Incorporate Wall Art

Years of wear and tear can make a dorm room feel run down. And who wants to be reminded by old holes in the wall or tape marks that you’re not the first to live there? No way! Instead, make your room completely yours with wall art that is expressive.

One of the best ways to make wall art stand out is to mix up sizes and styles. Add a large, inspirational message canvas with smaller framed pictures of your friends at the beach. Hang your favorite movie poster with string lights. You can even make wall art functional by adding shelving underneath or using framed mirrors.

 

Add a Wall Tapestry

Tapestries are coming back big-time this year thanks to the boho look. Hippy styles are totally on trend, which means you’ll want to look out for mandalas and tie-dye in a mix of earthy and vibrant colors.

ocm-dorm-wall-tapestry

Placement matters when it comes to tapestries. Our favorite location is across from windows where it will get natural light or serving as a makeshift headboard for the top of your bed. This will draw the eye to your personal space.

 

Experiment with Removable Wall Paper

Shhh… don’t tell anyone else, but the best, easiest, and cheapest way to completely make over your room is by using removable wall paper. It doesn’t take much time or effort, but by using wall paper on a focal wall (the largest blank space available), you can take a blank canvas and reimagine it completely.

Don’t be afraid to go big with your wallpaper. And play around with color or printed texture matched with your bedding. The best part is that if you don’t like it, it isn’t permanent. When you want a change or the semester ends, you simply remove it and start over again!

Turning Your Dorm Room into Your Home

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Being far from home can be intimidating. This is especially true when you’ve moved into a tiny, unfamiliar dorm room with a stranger for a roommate. However, with a few simple ideas, you can turn your cinder block residence hall into a home away from home. These tips will help you get started on creating a personal space you’ll love coming back to.

 

1. Take a Tip from Decorating Pros

Don’t you love walking into a home room and feeling instantly relaxed and at peace? It’s such a great feeling — one you can recreate easily in just about any space. The trick is to focus on light and luxurious. White comforters, sheets, towels, or hanging robe can seem so expensive and spa-like, but they are a great way to make your place feel more restful.

2. Use Your Old Home as a Color Pallette

You may not always love your mom’s style choices, but home is inevitably where your heart is. Ask a parent or sibling to take a couple of photos of your favorite room in the house. Use that photo on color pallette websites. They will take out the most dominant colors in the image and give you a color snapshot of what works in your old home. Then, go shopping! Bring your home color palette to select items like beddings, wall decor, rugs, and throw pillows.

3. Bring in Pictures and Frames

No one has the same photos and memories as you. So if a framed poster or canvas print simply won’t do, add photos of you and your sister at the beach or a photo of your old soccer team in action. Use vintage frames in bright or white colors to give it a more antique feel. And don’t be afraid to add even more artifacts like medals from your last 5K race or a piece of sheet music from your band concert.

4. Add Personal Touches

Like photos, it’s the little things that bring the most warmth and joy to the room. Add similar touches like that inspirational wall hanging your dad has in his office or a lucky wooden horse shoe that matches the one in your old bedroom. If you want something more unique that still ties in the space, go more subtle with a jewelry organizer in the shape of deer antlers that hang in your family’s den or a canvas or framed print of your favorite vacation spot.

5. Get Comfy

Home is where you lay your head, and no one wants a space that is uncomfortable or feels uninviting. Layer your base of blankets and bed pillows with throws that have personality but also purpose. This season, we’re loving anything flannel. It’s perfect for the woodsy, Americana type. If your ideal home is more zen-like, go with ombre teal blankets or black and white pillows spaced on top of a shared futon.

6. Show It Off

You probably have a ton of memories of your mom or dad throwing parties for holidays or celebrations. Why not throw your own welcome home party in your dorm room? Have friends bring a dish and lay out throw pillows to sit on as you share a meal together. Make it a regular get together and you’ll find some pride in your space in no time.

 

And if your space is getting praise, why not win some cash from it?! Enter in OCM’s Dorm Goals contest by sharing a picture of your new home. The top dorm space will win $1,000 in tuition credit!

 

Bright & Bold Dorm Room Style

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

bright-bold-fun-dorm-room-decor

 

Bland is so not us. We want a room that screams fun and festive! Our space should be totally and unapologetically our taste. Bright and bold dorm room styles is what we’re after, and we’re not going to compromise with bland, boring neutrals. If you’re the type of student who’s looking to make a splash with your bedroom, here are a few must-haves to make the look.

 

Black or White Base

Black and white is totally boring if that’s all you use. But all bold looks need contrast to stand out against something. By using black or white as the base, you can make your bold look even starker. White, while less eye-catching, is feminine and easy to dress up. Black is more in-your-face, but it can be harder to pair with.

To get a base, pick one large object you want to focus on. One idea is to have a white comforter or a black rug. These are great to accessorize with and then add-on colors in the next step. One great way to do this is to select an OCM Value Pak in a black or white that has colorful accents, such as the Black Lattice with Aqua set.

 

 

Selecting a Theme or Scheme

Bright and bold can be interpreted differently depending on your personal style. Some love the look of neon while others think bright like the hippy-centric tie-dye, and there’s a big push for highlighter colors like hot pink and grassy green. Whatever your look, having a theme in mind will help you decide your pieces.

If you’re unsure on color combos, head to a paint store and mix and match color cards. Carry these around as you shop at the store. You can also find an inspiration picture and then use a color selector to help you make your own online version!

Finding Your Essential Pieces

Once you know what you’re looking for, you can do the fun step… shop! Some of our favorite bold pieces are room staples like bedding, lamps, chairs, and storage units. These are pieces that you must have anyways, so why not make them funky or daring?

Some of our favorite finds include orange polka dot pouf seating, yellow striped laundry bags, neon pink storage trunks, and royal purple trash cans. Don’t forget linens either! Towels, bath mats, and even curtains can all be in funkier shades than the standard white or tan. And they look great stored in your closet.

Decorate Till You’re Colored Out

Now that the basics are done, you’re ready to unleash the rainbow in your dorm room. As you decorate, find items that bring you joy and give you energy. That’s what color is all about, after all!

This year, we are digging the Phylls Flamingo and Patty Palm Tree throw pillows paired with a Chenille ribbed rug in fuschia. There’s also the vibrant blue “Namastay in Bed” canvas that can be matched with the colored frame art kit or an icicles chandelier hanging from the ceiling.

 

However you decide to incorporate color in your dorm room, don’t be afraid to go bright and bold! It’ll make your room feel more like a home and help your style stand out loud and proud.

How to Achieve Glamorous Dorm Room Style

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

glam-dorm-room-style

Glam and dorms don’t easily go together. Plain cinder block walls and ugly tiled floors are just about as opposite as you can get to fancy and flashy. But if you’ve got a classy and sophisticated taste that you’re not ready to sacrifice for dorm life, we’ve got some tips that will work for you.

 

Go With a Black Base

The essential color for the glam look is, hands down, black. It’s timeless, easy to coordinate, and stands out against other neutral and metallic accents. The best place to have the majority of your black is within your bedding. Damask sheet sets are a great pick for patterns and fit in with plain black or white long-size comforters.

 

Black area rugs also work for that big impact look. It serves a double purpose of keeping the space warm (both literally and design-wise) and being a piece to tie everything in. If you go with a patterned rug, keep the rest of your room simple.

 

Add a Texture

What sells glam is the feeling of luxury. But you don’t have to spend a fortune to make your room look like it’s out of a celebrity’s home. Instead, focus on pulling in one, essential texture — fuzzy soft.

Fake fur throw blankets are a cool way to make your room look like a palace. While it’s tempting to go with white, try a color instead. It will look great draped over the back of a couch or up against a chair. We guarantee your guests will be drawn to it.

 

Get Glittery

No article on glam bedrooms is complete without talking about glitter! It’s the hallmark of the style and it cannot be forgotten when picking out your decor. Think small so you will not overwhelm your space, but pick pieces that are sassy and a little bit wild.

 

The first idea is to find an accent pillow with glitter incorporated. Erin Andrews’ collection has a very cool Dollar Sign Sequin pillow that cannot be missed. Mix it up with the Eat Sleep Contour pillow for extra sparkle.

 

Glamorize Your Walls

Your walls are what is going to need your style touch the most so here’s where you can get creative. Canvas black and white pictures of vintage Paris is an easy idea if you’re looking for a feel that is more antique glam. If you want more rock star glam, go with message posters that show your attitude. We’re big fans of the Glam Eyes canvas.

 

Other wall decor ideas include metallic colored clocks in art deco style, black damask oval mirrors, hanging metal jewelry organizers, and LED bulb string lights. The key is to find items that have a modern look with a vintage inspiration. If it appears like it could have been used by your grandmother but is still cool enough for you, then you’ve found the right pick.

 

With all these dorm decoration options and ideas, glam can find its place in your dorm room. Be brave, be bold, and think big with your look, and you can’t go wrong.
