Sarah's dorm room is fun, bright and youthful. By mixing bright colorful DIY projects with bright white minimalism, she made her space look larger — all without sacrificing personality.
From Sarah: As a junior in college, I had the opportunity to live in a single dorm room, and I couldn't wait to start decorating. The goal was to make the dark 12' X 8.5' room more colorful and fun, but also feel open and inviting.
When I first entered college, I looked up lots of ideas for DIY projects and dorm decorating on my College Dorm Room Pinterest board, but I have since learned that the "less is more" approach really goes a long way in such a small space. I kept some of the DIY dorm decor projects from my first year of college, such as the acrylic painted donut hat and colorful tassel garland, but I also incorporated some fresh new pieces for a cleaner feel and accents of gold for a more elevated touch. I also live by Command ceiling hooks to hang fun garlands from my ceiling!
I love that this space is cozy and fun, yet functional! After a long day of engineering classes, study groups with friends, and student org meetings, I am always so happy to come home to this space of my own.
