2. A Psychedelic Collage

If you want to incorporate a theme colour through your wall art but the previous more minimalist design isn’t your thing, then a bright and detailed collage could also work. Highly detailed posters can make for great wall art, containing so much that you see something new every time that you look at them. This particular design has everything from pink cranes to a harbour of boats, but there are so many collage posters out there that you’re bound to find one you’ll love.

3. Ghibli Wall Art

Student dorm rooms are often full of people’s favourite movie posters so if you’re a fan of Studio Ghibli then why not choose this design. Though the original movie posters themselves can look good, choosing a more subtle reference like this one will mean it is only recognisable to true fans and to anyone else it will simply look like pretty scenery. Taken from the Spirited Away when Chihiro takes the train across the water, the posterized version of the scene will have you dreaming of a more whimsical world.

If you want something bold then the original book cover for The Great Gatsby is perfect. This posterized version is a great piece of wall art for a literature student or just a fan of the novel.

6. Vintage Vogue Covers

If you do want some wall art that will give your room a vintage feel but you’re not really into Gatsby, then a vintage vogue cover makes for a really cool poster. This particular water colour design is a great way to inject some retro stylishness into your dorm. It can also be a great way to start a large mood board if you surround it with more vintage fashion posters or old magazine pages that you are no longer going to use.

7. A Minimalist Figure

Not everyone likes to fill up their room with tonnes of décor so when it comes to wall art, opting for minimalist designs will keep your room feeling clean and stylish. While minimalist art can be anything from flowers to an anchor, female figures or hands are also pretty popular. They can give a feminine and artsy touch to your room with their elegant designs and will stand out on your wall without looking too cluttered .

More unique than the original movie posters, there is minimalist art for most of your favourites and this Breakfast At Tiffany’s design is truly charming. The orange and pink will bring a pop of colour to your walls and the sketched style of illustration is very stylish. Besides, who doesn’t want Audrey Hepburn on their wall?
