Whether you’re an upcoming freshman who has no idea how to style their space, or someone who needs a little dorm decor inspiration, fear not! A ton of your fellow Owls are creative and their dorm rooms, decorations and ideas show it all! Here are 14 really cute Temple rooms for dorm decor inspiration!
1. Light it Up!
Every dorm room needs an interesting set of lights! Whether you’re a fan of neon pink or soft yellow, they’ll be sure to make your new home feel just as cozy as your old one.
2. Motivational Quotes
For the DIY lover or the bookworm—this is the perfect way to cover a stark brick wall while also inspiring you to study hard.
3. The Perfect Color Scheme
Not every room will have painted walls, but those that do can help you design a perfect color scheme. My personal favorite is a sea foam green or coral orange and light gray!
4. Unique Accent Lighting
Not all of your lighting has to come from the industrial lights that are already in your dorm. A cool blue light bulb or a vibrant color in a string of lights are perfect for relaxing.
5. Burlap Boho
Even if you’re not from the country, you can still enjoy the lovely flower print, lace and burlap style of anything Boho while you’re in the city. Fake flowers are a great add-on to any desk or windowsill.
6. Colorful Everything
Most dorm rooms have basic white walls, so in order to make it feel a little more homey, adding a pop of color (or a lot in this student’s case) can really bring life to a boring room!
7. Fresh & Simple
A well-distributed wall of posters and quotes looks sophisticated yet simple. An accent pillow is also a super easy way to spruce up a room while still keeping it modern.
8. Personal Art Gallery
An elegant white theme is great for those who want a clean look for their dorm room. Picture frames and canvases can be as simple or as complicated as you want, so you’re free to pick which ones are perfect for you.
9. The Vintage Music Collector
For the music lover or vintage collector, you can display your favorite bands and albums on your wall for an easy wall-covering look.
10. Up-Cycled Paint Swatches
It doesn’t have to be a Temple T but you can use paint chips to creative all sorts of designs for your walls!
11. A Wall of Lights
Dorm decor 101: If the fluorescent lighting in a dorm do not sound appealing to you or your eyes, creating a wall of lights could be an easy, inexpensive solution.
12. ‘Clothesline’ of Photos & Lights
Take a string of lights, clothespins, and pictures of your friends or family to make this brilliant piece of decor! Instead of hanging them separately, you could save time and combine them into one for the perfect dorm decor!
13. Know How to Knickknack
A hand-me-down teacup from your grandmother or a clay figure you made in elementary school can not only be awesome editions to your dorm decor but also cute reminders of home! However- bringing along too many of your favorite tiny objects can sometimes clutter your workspace, so choose wisely!
14. Organized & Orderly
Keeping your dorm decor organized and orderly will help centralize your entire dorm room and create a look of symmetry on either side! Posters in the middle, two lamps on either side, and dual windows makes this room look far from basic!
