Anything about #backtoschool excites me || Dorm room decor ideas ✨

Welcome back, a very long gap this time, but I have come up with some exciting stuff for you guys. 

COVID-19 pretty much hijacked everyone’s life, isn’t it? We’ve all sat at home more than we used to. Honestly, it’s been 5 months I’ve stepped out of the house. I have had personal pandemic issues struggling with mental health, unhopeful about the future and boredom. 

The only ray of light I’m seeing is with the schools and colleges reopening. College reopening and starting schools comes with a lot of exciting things, a new school, university, new classes, clubs, teams, friends, and…… a new dorm room.

I love to read, watch and anything about #backtoschool excites me. Combine #backtoschool with dorm décor, I’m sold. Moving into my first dorm room was by far the most exciting thing happened when starting college. 4 years and 4 rooms later, I’m still obsessed with the #backtoschool dorm décor and all the amazing and super fun and creative ways people decorate their cute spaces.

I’ve myself decorated all the walls in my room and now I’m decorating the only side of the wall left to decorate ha-ha. How you decorate your own spaces can say a lot about you. Redecorating your dorms can allow your personality shine through. You’ll feel comfortable stepping into your dorm every day, confident showing it off to your friends. Though dorms don’t have a very large space to work with, it will give a creative opportunity to discover your personal style and decorate from scratch for the first time, if you haven’t before. Now is the time to spruce up the place to make it look like exactly how you want it, as opposed to your childhood bedroom that might have the same wall paint, curtains and décor. But, sometimes the idea of redesigning a room can seem a little daunting, which brings me to our blog post today. I promise I’ll be short coz there’s a whole YouTube video coming up soon. Stay tuned for that.

I’ve partnered with Her campus X The Home Depot to bring you guys some amazing #backtoschool home décor ideas and affordable products to decorate your dorm rooms. 

Firstly, I’d definitely recommend adding an aesthetic mirror, no matter where you start. Mirrors add a whole lot of aesthetic flavour to the room. They are a great tool for reflection of one’s personality. You don’t want to pick something that every other person on your dorm floor has chosen, at the same time it should match the exact theme you are going for. If you’re looking for something aesthetically unique, the “Lana Sunburst 26.8 in. X 26.8 in. Gold Framed Mirror” is the way to go. It definitely went through with the whole leaf theme I was going for, isn’t it? Also, green and gold always form a great colour palette!

Secondly, to make your dorm feel like home, I’d recommend having some storage bowls for keeping candy, fruits. We always go home hungry from school, right? And we always crave for those quick snacks or fruit! If you’d want to store some candy/ fruit in a contemporary way, the “Hammered Oval bowl Black and Copper” is the perfect addition to dorm décor. It goes well with the whole gold theme we are going from the beginning. It looks great on the marble tabletop of your dorm room. Or if you want to take that cheese board for a picnic, this bowl is a picture-perfect décor.

That’s it for this time, you guys. I am super excited to see how you all decorate your spaces. Please don’t forget to tag me in your dorm inspo pics, I’d love to see and share them!

Happy Schooling in this fall, stay safe and healthy!
