How To Decorate Your Dorm Room Based On Your Horoscope


Going back to college after summer vacation excites me for a number of reasons. You get to end LDRing your college friendships; return to living on your own terms (aka nag-free microwavable dinners and vending machine desserts every night); buy a new wardrobe and renew your vows that this will finally be the year you actually wear this stuff instead of your Lululemons every day; and, most importantly, redecorate your dorm room. Hello, Pinterest dorm inspiration boarding! However, choosing how to decorate can be tricky, so here’s a guide on how to decorate your dorm based on your own unique horoscope.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This fire sign, ruled by Mars, the God of war, is known for being quick-tempered, but also ever-loyal and extremely passionate. Since you’re always on-the-go, it’s important to stay organized with wall hooks, filing systems, and anything else that ensures you don’t get slowed down by not being able to find things. Choosing a warm color scheme with oranges and reds will appeal to your inner fire sign.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You are a social butterfly and deserve a room as fun as your personality!  Quirky pillows and fun signs are a great way to add personality to any dorm room. As an air sign, you’re a pro at breezy small-talk, which coupled with your easygoing nature makes you a friend magnet. Make sure to have a wall calendar where you can track all your engagements!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This water sign, ruled by the Moon, gets a bad rap for being moody, but that can also be reinterpreted as being in tune with one’s emotions. To keep your spirits high, fill your room with positive messages such as a “Good Vibes” pillow and framed inspirational quotes. You’re also highly sentimental so you may enjoy having a photo wall with photos of your friends from back home.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

This sun sign lights up whatever room they enter. You’re confident, loud, and love being the center of attention. Pick a room with accents as bold and poppy as your personality by incorporating throw pillows in fun fabrics like stripes and leopard print.
