Walk into any dorm room or student apartment in this country and the general vibe is most likely going to be “prison-without-the-bars-chic.” The walls are white, the furniture is bland, and the light is fluorescent – it’s not a good look.
It can be hard to decorate without breaking the rules so most dorm-dwellers wind up taping pictures and posters to the wall and calling it a day. If you get creative though, you’ll be able to the make your room a space where you actually want to be at the end of the day.
Not sure where to start? Northpoint Crossing is here to help with a few inspirational student apartments to help you get creative:
This is such a unique room! What it lacks in organization, it more than makes up for in character. It’s a great space to hang out and get creative.
Yes, that tapestry is in every residence hall across America, but that doesn’t make it any less cool. The darkness of the tapestry is balanced out with the white bedspread and the red pillows.
This is room is simple, but the canopy is incredible! It’s a super unique look that minimizes the sterile feeling of the room.
Not every room will have this much space, but creating a seating area is a great way to encourage friends to hang out in your room.
This room feels really comforting thanks to the plants, earth tones, and other natural elements. This is the perfect room to spend a lazy Saturday morning in.
This delicate style might not be for everyone, but it’s a perfect example of cohesiveness. Check out the trunk under the bed: decorative and functional.
Fifty Shades of Grey Blue! This is a fantastic way to use your favorite color everywhere without going overboard. Hanging the clothes that match the color palette is pretty genius! Bonus points for the seating area too!
You don’t have to go as far as this person did, but creating a theme for your room is a great idea! It’s a great way to personalize the room and show off your hobbies.
Another example of roomie coordination! These two chose a color palette and showcased their own style while still creating a unified look.
Coordinating with your roommate isn’t always possible, but it makes a huge difference when it happens. It looks like they got those picture frames on the cinderblock wall using 3M Command strips.
