Junior Year Dorm Room

JUNIOR YEAR DORM ROOM TOUR- SINCERELYKENZGood morning party people… happy Monday! I took a bit of a blogging hiatus this past couple of weeks and am very happy to get back and post on here! Last Monday (August 29), I had my first day of classes. I am now a junior in college, which is a pretty scary, but exciting step for me. Before I know it I’ll be graduating college and entering the real world (that’s what all my professors keep telling me at least). For those of you who had your first week of college classes last week, I hope it went well!

 

 

Last year I blogged about my dorm room and to this day, it generates the most traffic to my site! A photo of my dorm room from last year has been featured on a ton of different websites and has over 61.k pins on Pinterest…. still can’t believe that but hey, I’m not complaining. If you want to check it out feel free to look at it here.

My friends Jessie, Vanessa, Melissa, Taryn, and I opted to get a suite on campus. This year I was fortunate enough to get my own bedroom. I am living in a “suite” with those four other girls. A suite is basically three bedrooms, a common room, and a bathroom. A post all about our common room will come eventually, once we figure out how we want to set it up.

 

 

 

I’m not really sure what to call the “theme” I went with this year, to be honest, I wouldn’t really say there is any theme. I kind of just pieced together a bunch of different things and hoped for the best. My room ended up looking pretty jazzy (so I like to say) and I am super happy with how it turned out.

 

 

As for bedding, I went with white everything (standard). I absolutely love the color white (if you have seen my Instagram feed, you would know this). I find the color to be so simple and relaxing. I have a ton of pillows which are all from a series of different stores. If you are interested in purchasing similar pillows, I would check out Target, Kohls, and Homegoods. Those stores would definitely have what you are looking for. My bedspread is plain white and is hands down one of the comfiest things I have ever slept on. I added a lil’ throw towards the end of my bed to accent the burlap colored board hanging above my bed.

Above my bed I have a map of Europe that Rob (isnt he just the best?!)  bought me last year! I love the colors of this poster, they’re very vintage, I guess you could say.  I also hung up a lil’ DIY that my bestfriend, Lacey, and I made this summer. It’s basically just a foam board covered in burlap fabric with pictures and quotes pinned all over it. I absolutely love how it turned out!

 

As for my desk area, I kind of used the same decorations that I used last year. I am loving the colorful tapestry that I opted to hang up behind my desk! I surprisingly found this tapestry at Marshalls.

Let’s not forget about the best part of the room… the boquet of flowers that Rob sends me every year on our first day of classes. I seriously am the luckiest girl in the whole world becuase he is so adorable:
