I was obsessed with dorm room tours in high school because I saw people making their room theme from scratch. I couldn't wait to do this because my room at home already had a set theme, so when I got to college, I knew I could decorate it however I wanted. With that being said, this is my third year doing a room tour, and I wanted to change up my look quite a bit. My room last year had much more of a preppy vibe with the tassel decorations and the color scheme, so I kept my room more neutral, and Pinterest inspired this year. 

At first glance, my room might seem relatively small, to which it was smaller than my room last year, but once you are in the room and look at it longwise, you will see that there is more than enough room. 

My closet is the same as it was last year from the outside. The inside is the same, but I set it up differently because I seem to have way more stuff to store inside. Anyone else ever has this problem where you have seemed to have brought more things than you did last year? It happens to me every year, and I don't buy much.

Onto my bed, I love how my bed is set up. I wanted my colors to be white, black, and grey, so I kept the same comforter as last year, bought grey sheets, and hung up this beautiful tapestry from Five and Below. Then on the top, I just draped a fake, green vine for added effect. The bed reminisces a cloud, and I would essentially be floating on it as I travel the world, if that makes sense. 

Under my bed, I have a storage area where I keep my bins and drawers. This year I draped a black fabric to act as a bed skirt, so it does not show any storage underneath my bed. 

I like to call this my entertainment area as this is where I would come and sit down to watch TV. With the same idea as last year, I set up my TV on top of my storage bin to act as a TV stand, and on the other side, I placed my chair to sit in. I made an effort to decorate my chair more according to the room's theme, so I found a white throw blanket from the dollar store and a grey throw pillow from Walmart and placed them on the chair. It adds a level of coziness as well.
As for wall decoration, I wanted to do the Pinterest-inspired leaf wall design, so I found fake green leaf decorations on Amazon and hung them on the wall vertically to add more life and a friendly vibe to the room. 

With the way my room was set up, I had a nice little space in front of my bed to put my desk. I soon realized afterward that I could make this into my own office space. So with that, I decorated my desk to my liking by placing marble countertop paper and putting my desired items on top. The countertop paper adds more definition to the desk and room overall. Then I put up sheer curtains for the aesthetic. I always wanted a curtain in my dorm room, but I wanted to be light and airy to go with the room theme, so sheer was the best way to go. Then I placed my black mirror and hung up two items, one which is just my canvas and says Tres Chic, and the other frame that I spray painted matte black that way I can write on it with chalk. 
Now with all of the combined elements, I find that it does resemble an office. I like to use this space to plan and write blog posts, do homework, make lists, and so on. 

This year has to be my favorite year as far as me decorating my room. The color palette is very neutral and more grown-up, and I get inspired to work once I am in this space.
I will still be decorating my room as I am always looking for ways to improve my room, so maybe I will change it up in time for Christmas or even the spring semester; who knows.
