We’re happy to bring you this fun back-to-school feature from founder and creator of DwellStudio and Tiny Prints stationery designer, Christiane Lemieux. To shop for her designs, check out our DwellStudio Collection.
It’s that wonderful time of year when we all start thinking about getting ourselves, and our kids back to school. It’s not always as simple as new backpacks and notebooks—so for those of you heading back to drab dorm rooms (or moving your college-bound kids into one), here are a few quick tips to spruce up your room:
- Make things cozier while adding color and pattern by tossing a few throw pillows around your space.
- Add some interest to your walls with these chic papier-mâché animal heads, hang a couple up and suddenly you’re living in a stylish trophy room.
- Splurge a little and snag one of our Draper Stripe throws, they’ll add some texture to your bed—and keep you warm (and chic!) during those all-night study sessions.
- Dress up your bunk by layering on some shams in bold, graphic patterns.
Just a few super easy ideas to make your dorm a perfect place to live… at least for this year!
