Dorm Room Elegance
Just because you’re living in a dorm room, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice all style and sophistication. There are plenty of ways to add a little elegance to any living situation, even if you are stuck with stark white walls and campus furniture.
In a dorm your bedroom becomes a multi functional room used for sleeping, studying and chilling when you need a little retreat from the roomies, so make sure it is as classy as you are with nice bedding and office supplies. A glamorous bedspread like this gold damask pattern or this silk comforter will set an elegant tone to your bedroom, while some desk additions like this luxurious lamp will keep you studying in style.
Your living room is generally a common area in dorms, so it is a bit trickier to glam it up if that doesn’t mesh with your roommates’ styles, but there are still some things you can do to add a touch of sophistication. An elegant rug and some beautiful vases that you can keep filled with flowers will add instant glamour to your room.
Since dorm dwellers usually have a meal plan there isn’t really a kitchen, but you still need somewhere to store snacks for late night studying and coffee to make it through that 8 am class. Dress up your dining area with some classy yet durable dishes and a dedicated coffee and tea station as recommended by Arts and Classy.
A downside of having your own bathroom is that you have to clean it, but an upside is that you can add some personal touches to make it more stylish. DIY fancy apothecary jars for next to nothing to store your supplies in and use a chic tiered cake stand as countertop shelving.
