This tapestry. Outlined with lights it becomes 10x cuter and can always be used for an awesome photo backdrop. Charlotte and her suite mates threw a LEGENDARY glow party in their room using glow paint and more!
2. Madison Hetherington – Ontario Hall
This room is designed for the inner boho with a relaxed environment for studying, Netflixing or partying alike. With photos hung to reminisce and twinkly lights to brighten dark days, Madison clearly has dorm life all figured out.

5. Julia Ettlinger – Saugeen-Maitland Hall
Blue bedding is rare amongst amazing rooms but this bedding absolutely makes the room. The soft, baby blue adds an element of wonder which, when paired with photos and this gorgeous tapestry, makes Julia’s room feel very chic.

This Ontario Hall room gives a brilliant home-y meets chic look with patterned bedding paired with a sequinned throw. The teddy bear gives Serena a childhood vibe when away from home. The Vogue cover poster adds a sense of style and fashion with a pop of colour for the neutral room.
9. Mikayla Martyn – Saugeen-Maitland Hall
This room takes top place for me. It makes a chaotic wall feel neutral by crafting the perfectly designed gallery wall. The eccentric vase of flowers matched with the accents of pink on various posters and the pink sheets allows all of the elements to flow together. The numerous strings of lights give a soft light which is complemented by the natural light flowing in.
10. Lauren Reynolds – Medway-Sydenham Hall
With bubblegum pink bedding, how could this not be a gorgeous room? This tapestry encompasses all of the colours of the bedding, flooring and pictures, all while having a boho design. Lauren’s chair is every 90’s girls ultimate want since Lizzie McGuire debuted it earlier this century.
11. Kathryn Groom – Ontario Hall
This room has a unique peach and gold theme with a patterned bedding which is enhanced with the assortment of vibrant throw pillows. These lights are very unique and with varying lengths, creates a mystical look compared to the standard lights seen in most other rooms. Kathryn’s desk is the ideal girl’s desk as it has a perfect proportion of style, space for makeup and space for studying.
12. Julia Martin – Essex Hall
Julia used mirrors admirably along the walls to create more depth in a small space. The vibrant turquoise bedding manifests thoughts of summer even in the cold of the London winter. The gold in the mirrors also complements the turquoise bedding to manifest a Tiffany themed room.
13. Kyleigh Hutchinson – Medway-Sydenham Hall
This Med-Syd soph’s room perfectly embodies what it means to be a Mustang. The curtain rack lined with all types of bottles, assisting to remember forgotten nights at Ceeps. The black couch invites friends in to chat at all hours of the night which can be lit up by the amazing purple lights, supporting her school colours.
14. Crystal Karmen Mak – Delaware Hall
This desk is the perfect mix of culture, colour and style. It perfectly encompasses every aspect of life at Western and creates a space of her very own. Crystal includes functionality with flair with both her laptop and books as well as a wine glass and shades.
15. Emma Anderson – Essex Hall
This Essex room is both functional and fashionable. With a thick throw to cozy up on cool nights and black-out curtains to lengthen her zzz’s, Emma has created the perfect room for sleep-ins and netflix binges (on the weekends, of course!)
16. Abby Meloff & Hailey Cracknell – Medway-Sydenham Hall
These bestfriends-turned-roommates have matched every element of their sides of the room to construct a hangout haven. With both having their own flair reflected on their desk space, this room pairs impeccably.
17. Holly Somerville – Delaware Hall
Although Delaware is not considered a “party residence,” Holly and her roommate sure know how to decorate for a good time. Both roommates have perfectly combined their studious natures with fun and flair to establish an ideal residence room for both partying and studying.
18. Ally Johnston – Medway-Sydenham Hall
The simplicity of Ally’s room exhibits her laid-back lifestyle which is complemented by the pops of yellow in both the artwork and throw pillows. The grey backdrop allows for a neutral vibe which is gorgeous for photos and great to cozy up in on a rainy day.
19. Dylan Giles – Medway-Sydenham Hall
Dylan and his roommate have taken residence life to a whole other level. Not only is their room awesome when set up for movie night along with a popcorn machine and massive projector, but is also insane on a regular day with posters and artwork plastered along the walls. You can certainly find the best parties in this Medway room.
20. Kennedie Fife – Clare Hall, Brescia
Star lights are amazing in any setting but when hung in a window, the awe factor of the lights grows exponentially. The photo from with assorted photo sizes gives an element of personalization and allows Kennedie to have nostalgic emotions while perched on her window seat.
21. Laura Kernaghan – Medway-Sydenham Hall
This room follows a gorgeous blue colour scheme with all aspects of the room being tied together. The clean white cabinet is a funky addition to the room with its shelves holding artwork and succulents. Above Laura’s bed holds glowing blue lights which provide a lantern feel with photos hanging above.
22. Hanna Lazdowski – Medway-Sydenham Hall
While quite simple, Hanna’s single room proves to be a suitable hangout for her group of friends to study or gossip. Her white bedding doubled with grey throws is a fresh combination for a good nights sleep.
23. Vanessa Guglietti – Delaware Hall
This varsity athlete’s room is exuberant of sport, friendship and all things Western. From the massive flag to the hip poster and polaroids lining the walls, everything is mismatched to perfection. This is the essential room for any on-the-go girl.
24. Caitie Brown – Medway-Sydenham Hall
Caitie has lined the walls surrounding her bed with pictures of friends, family and fun. This helps with homesickness for this Calgary native. The tribal patterned bedding in grey gives a soft detailing to the room with big white pillows to ensure comfort.
25. Natalie Kovalchuk – Perth Hall
This floral themed room radiates a springtime aura all year, making dreary winter days seem bright. The leaf decals on the wall enhance the nature feeling which then is tied into the pillows and intriguing lamp. A lack of a definite colour scheme creates a unique feeling when present and truly allows us to look into Natalie’s individuality.
26. Matt Leblanc – Medway-Sydenham Hall
This traditional style room is jam packed and creates a fun-loving feel for Matt and his roommate. Between the awesome Molson Canadian fridge, the lights strung throughout the room and the traffic cone (?), it all works together to equal the ideal man cave.

The walls lined with adventure-esque signs and posters suit Leslie’s bubbly personality. With tassled pillows and boho bedding, a cat pillow adds a splash of liveliness to the room.

28. Aleah Balas – Medway-Sydenham Hall
This room was designed to be a relaxing environment to welcome friends and floor-mates into. A pink and gold colour scheme is radiated with flowers, bedding and the lamp at the end of the bed. The faux brick wall was created using removable wallpaper to give a NYC flat vibe.
The wallpaper used can be found here.
29. UWO Theta – Saugeen-Maitland Hall
This tapestry steals the show. Tapestries being a common factor in many of the rooms can seem to blend into the crowd, but not this one. Because the tapestry is so loud and detailed, this sorority chick recognized the need for clean, white bedding which fits magically.
30. Alexa Frankcom – Perth Hall
The best part about this room is the gorgeous turquoise bedding which is accented with pink pillows and a cozy pink throw. Alexa’s desk is perfectly organized with cute personalizations like the ‘a’ book end and starfish.
