Hey Y’all! Melissa here blogging for Decorator Girl this week. I recently graduated from the University of Florida and with all of the hype of back to school I thought I would share some of my favorite tricks for decorating your first dorm room.

A few key things to consider when you are out shopping for the perfect decor for your first home away from home are to keep things light and airy. Dorm rooms tend to be very small and dark colors will only make the room close in even more. You might consider bringing your own lighting to brighten the space. String lights are a very popular choice but also try a fun pendant light. Add in some wall art and tons of pillows to create elements of texture and color. Try to connect with your future roommate to coordinate a color palette or theme for the room. When all the elements in the room work together, then you will really start to feel right at home!
