Want to create a DIY Dream Dorm but don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered.
Blue-prynt.com launches on May 1st with fresh new content, products, and DIY design inspiration to help you create your home away from home. You will be able to identify your favorite looks to a customized Blue-prynt board where you can share it with your roommate or a relative who does not know what to buy you for graduation.
Before our launch, we wanted to share a sneak peek on how you can design your dream down and add your own DIY flare to customize it to your taste along with some DIY dorm room items for the Class of 2023!
Pillows are a great way to add flair to your dorm room without compromising your dorm decor. Whether you have a simple, minimalistic dream dorm decor or have more of an eclectic style, pillows are a great addition to your dorm decor.
Boho Chic Pillows we love
Add Moroccan vibes with these patterned pillows with a pop of metallic gold foil print alongside tassels. These Boho approved pillows are from Pottery Barn Teen and Amazon will look perfect in your dorm.

What is better than walking into a well-organized dorm room after a long day of classes and studying? Maybe free pizza? But when free pizza is nowhere to be found, a well put together dorm room is a perfect alternative. Here are a few items you can purchase to create a zen-like ambiance in your dorm without breaking the bank.
Desktop Organizers we love:
Organize your refrigerator space and desk space with these items that will not only create organization in two areas you use the most, but provide give you space to move around and find the most important items in your dorm on a day-to-day basis. Check out these items and other storage and organization items here.

Wall art is the perfect way to display items in your dorm that reflect your personality. A photo gallery, posters, tapestries, or floating shelves provide your dorm space with the perfect opportunity to add a pop of color or design into your dorm without going overboard.
Trending tip: Wall stickers are trending into next school year, so make sure you get the perfect stick on wallpaper for your dorm.
Wall art items we love from PBDorm:
For an urban look, brick peel and stick is a great option, where a headboard tapestry gives your dorm the option of looking elegant, yet won’t cost you your entire dorm budget. For an edgier look, PBDorm gives you the option to create great vibes without a huge overhaul involved installation.

Bedding is one of the most important aspects of your dorm room. Your bed is also a place where you will be spending most of your time. Re-create a preppy, minimalist, or eclectic look by using bedding from Room 422 or PBDorm. Both have pre-fitted sheets that will work perfectly in your dorm with your mattress size, so you don’t have to spend more time than you have to look around town.
Interested in an elegant headboard to compliment your bedding? Check out these headboards from Room 422 made especially for dorm rooms. Headboards velcro straight to the wall! Velcro strips will be sewn onto the back of the headboard. No drilling or nailing!
