3) Hanging plants are hot this year
Hanging plants add a right touch. You will want to mix them up. Lots of succulents mixed with vines and creeping iveys will make your room pop.
4) Pink and teal are your friends
You can not overuse pink. You can not overuse teal. When you mix them together using tons of throw pillows, your room really stands out. Don’t forget to use textures and tassels as much as you like, emphasis on much.
5) Solid pastel bed sheets are the backdrop to go for
You won’t need to make your bed if your sheets are bomb. A solid pastel in teal or pink will give your room a pop even if you sleep too late and have to rush out to class before you finish your morning checklist.
6) All dorms this year must have string lights
Here we go with the string lights: you must have some. Not only do they add ambiance but, they’re just so cute. You could go for a string of plain Christmas lights or you’ll get bonus points if you choose some with a nautical motif. Either way, get some.
7) Repurposed wood goes everywhere
Driftwood is a mainstay of Coastal Style decor. You can literally just pick some up off the beach. Keep your eye out for interesting shapes and use it as a table base under a piece of glass that you can snag from the thrift shop.
8) Candles go everywhere
There’s nothing like a million candles to warm up a room. Use blue Ball glass jars and candle holders with rope or nautical themes to get across the finish line. Do not be shy, you can’t overdo candles.
9) You’ll be pleased with flamingo desk accessories
Be brave when using flamingos. The internet has a million desktop accessory options that will give a touch of whimsy while giving you a nifty place to store your Sharpies.
10) Quirky Coast Wall Decor adds the finishing touch
Whether you go for a wall sculpture or framed art, add interesting wall treatments as a finishing touch.
