My daughter is a high school senior this year and just got her first college acceptance letter. While I’m super excited for her, I’m also crying/in denial because I’m not ready for her to be all grown up yet. At all. So what better way to swallow the sad than Pinterest, right?
I started college in 1986 and back then, at least in my world, “dorm room decor” meant tearing pages out of magazines and taping them to the wall and that was about it. We did try to coordinate comforters I think, and we felt super fancy the year we had a mini-fridge and a tiny Ikea sofa, but that was the extent of it. Granted, back then, you wouldn’t have caught me with monogrammed anything, so even if dorm room cuteness had been a thing, my room probably would not have featured monogrammed headboards.
Apparently, times have changed–well, that or I was just a decorating dud in those days–because I started seeing dorm room pictures on Pinterest that were fancier than my whole house. And now I’m obsessed with cute dorm rooms. So in case you’re not on Pinterest, here’s a peek at what you’re missing in terms of dorm room cuteness:
