Creating A College Dorm Gallery Wall

Coming back to college this year, I knew I wanted to do something a little different with my dorm room. Last year’s decor was great, but I wanted to make my room look a little more mature and not like a typical freshman year dorm. That meant getting rid of the posters and cliché canvases and switching to something more eclectic that I can change out whenever I want!

Want your dorm room to feel more homey? Create a gallery wall! See what I use to make my gallery wall, what items are perfect, and the end result.

Gallery walls can be made as large or as small as you need which is why they’re perfect for a dorm. I don’t have a roommate this year (a perk to being in residence life) which means I have four blank walls to cover. By the end of the year, this gallery wall will probably cover my entire room, but right now I just have it focused over my desk. Plus, I want something pretty to look at when I’m slaving over homework, so the desk is a perfect place!

For my dorm room this year, I’m going for a more put together, gallery wall look instead of posters and pictures all over the wall. I figure I’m past that typical freshman year poster decor and it’s time for me to move on to something a little more sophisticated. What look are you going for in your dorm room or apartment this year?
