20 Dorm Rooms You Wish Were Yours
The Pastel Bookworm
Keep it clean and neat, with all your books out for easy browsing and easy studying. Natural shades of green, cyan and cream are great complements to this room of relaxation.
Create a microcosm of the urban land with large citiscape posters that extend across the room and smaller posters of your favorite shopping brands, cover albums, etc. right above your bed.
Classy Loftstyle Livin’
I’m not sure many dorms would allow you to showcase an array of empty liquor bottles on your top shelf, but the idea of an expansive couch is quite helpful when you have drunk friends who know they won’t make it to their beds tonight (as long as they don’t leave puke stains everywhere). Oh, and top it off with a adequately sized TV and loud speakers to transform it into a great social space. Score!
Wall of Fame
Talk about movie star galore! Collect various photos of celebrities, bands, film posters and then put them on the wall like a huge panorama of old hollywood. Then put a random photo of the beach with palm trees on the side of your desk because, well, why not?
Install larger-than-life typography on a clean wall with your favorite quote, your happy thoughts or a positive note staring at you all day and night. Then criss-cross small Christmas lights across the ceiling to give it that romantic effect. Lots of swirls, pearls and spirals will go well with it. Keep the rest simple.
Classic christmas lights, easy black and whites, maybe some polka dots along the way. Possibly add one or two fabric strips of magnets and photographs against the wall or next to the window. Voila! A nice get-away from a busy day.
Besides a couple of memorable photos, post-cards and lights hung here and there, it’s always fine to have the peaceful appearance of a natural room with additional light floral prints on the pillow cases and baby pink, lavender and off-white. It works very well if there are more windows to let the fresh air and rays of sunshine in.

Twinkle twinkle my bed is the center of attention. If that’s the case, then light it up with christmas lights interlaced here and there around the headboard. The Dream Catcher typography above it is also quite creative and empowering, if you’re into that.
10 Tips To Make Your Life Easier And More Enjoyable
#1: Turn off your cell phone
Once work is finished and you want to spend some quality time with your family, simply turn off your cell phone.
#2: Stop multi-tasking
Although, it may seem like you move on quicker if you work on several tasks in parallel, research has shown that it is actually more beneficial to focus only on one single task at a time. On top of that, it will allow you to greatly simplify your life.
#3: Throw away old stuff you no longer need
Clean out your garage, wardrobe, toolbox… and throw away or give away stuff you no longer need. If you didn’t use an object for at least 5 years, there is a good chance that you will never use it again.
#4: Ask for help
You can’t do everything in life on your own, so don’t be shy and don’t feel embarrassed to ask for help. Why would you want to complicate your life unnecessarily trying to figure out everything on your own if there are other people who already solved those problems and are willing to help you?
#5: Slow down and relax
Life isn’t a race and you will be happier and more successful if you slow down and relax every now and then. Life isn’t only simpler and more enjoyable if you take some time to relax, but typically you will also have your best ideas when you find yourself in a relaxed state.
