Even though this room has a lot of patterns and colors, it still seems airy and not overwhelming. Pairing the wild throw pillows and wallpaper with simple white bedding helps balance the look. 

Neon signs are a HUGE trend right now and they are perfect for dorm rooms because they add a cool ambiance that those fluorescent dorm lights don't give you! 

2. Add plants and neutral colors for a boho look

I loveee this neutral, boho look! You can take your dorm room to the next level by limiting open wall space, which is what makes this room look so cool. The natural wood tones make the ugly dorm furniture blend right in. 

I love how the plants fill up the space and make the room more cozy. I would opt for fake plants so you don't have to worry about taking care of them when you are a busy college student!! 

3. Make a photo wall

Photo collages are the perfect way to fill up those big, empty walls! I love how the photos are square and perfectly distributed across this wall. It looks like they are mostly personal photos, which is so fun because you get to constantly look at all of your fun memories!

Once again, the neon signs are a hit! They are so cute and really add something to a room that you can't achieve with a poster or cork board. 

4. Have an all white look with pops of color

This dorm room is SO pretty! I love how light and refreshing the decor is. The girl who beautifully decorated this room made the fun tapestry all on her own! You could attempt to DIY it yourself or you can get one from amazon like the one above. 

I also love the hanging plants because they add an earthy element so the white room doesn't seem cold. This look is simple and easy to recreate.

5. Stick to white and grey with pink accents

This dorm room is so fun and girly. I love all of the different textures that make the room feel so cozy. The personalized neon sign is SO cute and special because it's personalized. 

Her pink photo collage is the perfect way to add a pop of color alongside the feminist poster that I adore. This is definitely one of my favorite dorm room ideas 2022 freshman need to create. 

6. Mix fun posters and signs to fill wall space

This is such a unique look. I love the way she mixed different types of wall hangings with picture frames, posters, a wood plaque, and the metal moon phase garland. Mixing different materials like that creates an eclectic look that is SO popular right now. 

As for bedding, I of course love all of the different patterns and textures she mixed that create a cohesive, cozy vibe.

7. Letter boards are a dorm room must!

This black and white dalmatian print wallpaper is seriously one of the trendiest dorm room items ever. I love how she covered her bulletin board with the peel and stick wallpaper to cover up that ugly brown cork and add a fun pattern to the room! 

The pink letter board is such a fun option for a pop of color instead of the traditional black one. The shelving decor is also so fun and adds some other bright colors! 

8. Simple bedding, FUN posters

This room looks so welcoming and comfy! The simple, star patterned bedding is perfect with the colorful posters on the wall. She printed her photos out on her own, but you can also buy a photo collage already made as linked above.

Throw blankets are the BEST thing in college. Some nights it will get so cold (even if you live somewhere hot) and you will be so thankful for that blanket! My roommates would always steal mine, so get a cute one like this and keep it close by! 

9. Disguise the provided dorm room furniture
