Recreate this dorm room:

Peel and stick wallpaper is one of the most popular dorm room design trends in 2021. The walls are usually old and plain, so without the option to paint, peel and stick wallpaper is the next best thing!

It is super easy to apply to your walls and can be removed hassle-free at the end of the year (without messing up the walls). The wallpaper will add so much style to your walls and without the cost of a fee at the end of the school year.

24. Gold + Pops Of Blue

Now what really brings this room together is the cabinet in the middle that hides the dorm fridge. These look stunning, but I am going to warn you they are insanely expensive. Try looking on Facebook Marketplace (or buy & sell pages) at your school before handing over the cash for these!
