With back to school rounding the corner, it’s time to start thinking about how I want my dorm room to be decorated. A lot of things come to mind when I’m thinking about decorating my room but one thing was at the top of my list.
Kallie here, and I am gonna take over my mom’s blog for today because Back To School is here and I have some insider’s scoop to help all those college-bound who read this blog!
For the longest time, I’ve wanted a tapestry for my room, but not just any plain tapestry, I wanted something that screamed…me. So, I hunted and searched the internet, I Googled and looked for a tapestry that was laid back, but cool. It’s all about the feeling that you give your dorm room, and if it is not comfortable you just can not settle in.
As I head back into my dorm, I want to share with you what you need to order. It comes quick, so even if your walls are bare, give it a few days, and you will have a new tapestry. This is how I lavishly live dorm room living out loud and how a tapestry changes dorm room walls.
How A Tapestry Changes Dorm Room Walls & Apartment Walls too!
(Updated August 2019)
First, you might as well know, I graduated from my undergraduate university and I have moved on to Law School. Also, I found out a fun fact, I never knew! The funny thing was, that my mom took the exact same path but even when accepted to law school, she deferred. Instead, she got a Master’s Degree. It’s funny how much we are the same, isn’t it? Crazy to know! Hard to believe!
Now that I am living in an apartment, I have to tell you, I am still using my Tapestry and I have added a few more. They are practical decor items that truly change up those plain walls! Also, they can be hung with minimal wall damage, which makes my mom happy. Otherwise, we have to patch it up and paint!
The Dorm Thing and Now The Apartment Thing – How A Tapestry Changes Dorm Room Walls
Oh my, the rooms in the dorms look like hospital blah walls and that just has got to change. I feel like I am a sardine-packed in white walls and living in an insane asylum with the ugly plain look.
Step One, stop looking at bare walls and head straight to Amazon to find a tapestry. Step Two: look for something that you would love to be entranced by when you are studying, something that sets you at ease. Step Three: Don’t worry about matching, because anything goes with WHITE WALLS, lol!
I can’t believe it is legal to have ugly white walls, fashion them up!
The Arrival – Dorm or Apartment – How A Tapestry Changes Dorm Room Walls
Don’t let the walls scare you. Change things up, and you also want to know, that these tapestries are relatively inexpensive. I mean, now that is really important because as a Law Student in an apartment, there is basically ZERO budget to play with.
Glad to share that these have lasted for 4+ years and have much more life in them.
When I found the Tapestry above, I knew I needed it in my dorm room. Now I am using it in my apartment. Reuse, recycle. Everything old is new again.
As I said, back to school is just around the corner. For me, this means that it’s time to think a little bit about what I want my place to look like.
When I was thinking about things I’d like to see in my dorm every day, and now my apartment, the one theme I love the most popped into my head…beach theme. I knew as soon as I thought about it that I just had to have a beach themed tapestry to add to my room’s decorations.
I may not be headed to a beach any time soon, but when I stare at this I can imagine and plan for the future!
Don’t DENY Yourself A Good Looking Dorm Wall
Luckily Amazon has so many designs to choose from. What I love about this tapestry is how absolutely simple, yet extravagant the picture is. It’s sure to bring a bright, exciting, vibe to my room and I’m so excited to put it up! Did I mention there are also various sizes?
I opted for the smaller size due to the fact that I knew it would take up a lot of wall space and I wanted room for other various decorations. Upon opening the package, I touched the material and absolutely loved the feeling, its sot, lightweight, and the color on the tapestry itself is absolutely astonishing.
Not only is the quality of the product fantastic, but the prompt arrival was an added plus too! I couldn’t be more excited to get this up in my room!
TIPS – How A tapestry changes dorm room walls (and apartment walls too!)
The tapestry folds small for storage year to year. The tapestry is easily hung with a few 3M clips which don’t ruin walls. That is what I love most about it. Of course, you can always add a solar light strand above the panel to illuminate it. Do not wash this, simply shake it out.
When you are done with it, pass it on. Or you can always frame it and have all your college friends sign it! Alternatively, save it for your apartment. You know law school students don’t have the funds to buy anything new! Reuse is cool.
Back To The Dorm Room
Going back to school and decorating a blank wall is difficult. Amazon makes it super simple and quick. There are thousands of tapestries to choose from.
This is how I lavishly lived life out loud with my brand new Tapestry! Now you know how A Tapestry Changes Dorm Room Walls and Apartment walls. Take your world from plain and boring white and mix it up! Decorate big, live it large!
