Ahh spring, when the sun comes out and fills your room with all kinds of pretty light. Here are some girly dorm decor ideas to dress up your desk and give your space a mini makeover for spring, a home decor ‘spring clean’. These are great girly decor ideas for if you are renting or looking for dorm room ideas for girls as they require no paint or mess!
I often think small changes can have a big impact, especially if you have gotten used to your surroundings over time. Here are some pretty home decor or cute dorm decor ideas, how to makeover your dorm room, bedroom, desk or home for spring.
. A pretty mug for your desk. Okay this doesn’t count as stationery but you could use it, not only for hot drinks, but to hold pens and pencils, or even pieces of jewellery for a bedside table. Perfect for if you’re looking for shabby chic dorm ideas as there are so many adorable mug designs to choose from!
Tape a magnetic strip or piece of double sided sticky tape inside the rim to secure bobby pins, pencil sharpeners, all the little useful bits and pieces that always get lost I just need a big one for odd socks
I got round to purchasing this eyes shut Miss Etoile mug, it’s been on my wishlist for ages and I finally found it for £13 on the Twinings website, much cheaper than the usual £18! It’s the loveliest thing, it’s a really big mug too which makes it perfect for holding all kinds of bits and pieces even almost socks
. Pretty books on your desk – pepper your workspace, bedside table, dressing table, wherever you might be stationed with a few decorative and dreamy books. Mix up your revision guides or novel collections with a few pretty pastel covers. You could even make your own covers for books using any fabric you like, pretty books also make great photo props too for all you bloggers out there.
. Cute jars for storage – my white bunny jar came from Home Bargains, I think it cost between £1 and £2 and is a really nice big size to put all sorts of bits and bobs in. Right now I have a Yankee candle votive in there, some hair clips and pretty lace clippings. It’s somewhere to display pretty things whilst keeping them safe. I also have a pink opaque jar to hide away things like tippex and blue tack.
. Hanging hearts – I bought this set of three wooden hearts from TheLittleLoveHeartCo on Etsy, the same place I purchased the gorgeous deer heart in my girly bedroom makeover post. These are smaller so are perfect for popping on your pin board your bed frame, or for hanging on your drawers. Perfect pretty dorm room decor ideas!
I love the patterns, the two floral hearts remind me of Cath Kidston designs and the woodland creature print is my favourite, it’s adorable! I’ve just noticed there are little birds and flowers in there too. They were packaged so beautifully and postage was free. I’m really loving shopping on Etsy at the moment!
. Easter or spring themed phone case – another way to work in some spring vibes is to change up your phone case. I always keep my phone next to me, especially when I am working on something and absolutely love my Fifi Lapin case. She is the most fashionable Easter bunny haha. You could even change up your phone wallpaper with this little soothing wallpaper compilation I made here!
