Dorm Room Concepts

We are going to college! my dear friends please don't fall for the stereotypical dorm room look. Don't buy into it!!!! So I have decided to try to bring you all dorm concepts or how to bring your own touch into something that has always been pretty cookie cutter.

1. Pick a color theme. Don't go overboard like buying everything in all the same shade of red or all bright colors, but try to keep your linens in the same color tones so they work together.2.Personalize your side of the room. make it yours, but keep in mind your roommates taste.
3. keep your walls simple and get bright, colorful and most importantly COMFY quilts or duvets.
This duvet cover here is infact the one I plan to use in my dorm. It can be found at Ikea. Don't be afraid to have more than one quilt or duvet cover, and an extra set of sheets is highly recommended by all.
4. Don't just hang things from the walls, especially if you have like cinder block cement walls, see of you can hang things from the ceiling like these colorful paper orbs available through Martha Stewart's line at Michael's.
5. This is probably the first time some of you have control of what gets hung on the fridge since you were little. My parents have been kind enough to let me be in charge of what gets put on the fridge, so just think of it as a collage space that can constantly be changed and added to. My fridge is more cluttered than this but they have the concept down.

Wallpaper from the 70s

I stumbled upon a great wallpaper site the other day. Floral dreams, Baroque patterns, and designs that belong in a psychedelic pad, they have it! I am tempted to buy something from Wallpaper from the 70s yet I don't know if I have a wall to spare. What am I thinking I would give up all the walls in my house in a second.
These are some of my favorites from the site.
