My oldest daughter will be going to college soon.

We have spent the past year touring different colleges and universities to find the perfect place.

The one thing she didn’t like about every single place we toured was there were no “cute dorms” just plain boring rooms.

My daughter is very artistic and loves things to always be aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

So we have decided to give her dorm room an aesthetic makeover, to help her feel more at home while she is so far away from us.

How To Have An Aesthetic Room

If you are looking for tips on how to have an aesthetic room then first you must find your style.

There are so many trending room styles out there, but you need to know your own personal style so you will LOVE it.

Make a vision board of images of rooms and decor that you like in order to find your own aesthetic style.

How To Make Your Room Aesthetic:

* Display focal pieces, like wall art or a macrame hanging.

* Pick fluffy white bedding.

* Add colored throw pillows – blush pink or burnt orange are trending now.

* Hang fairy lights.

* Have some greenery – real or faux.

Aesthetic Dorm Room: Bohemian

The Bohemian style is really popular right now.

It is a mix of colors, textures, and of course greenery.

For the aesthetic boho room, you must incorporate macrame, natural wood elements, and of course plants.

This moon phase hanging is a perfect addition to any aesthetic room decor.

It’s remarkable how a simple, minimalist accent piece like this wall decor can tie a room together.

These cute hanging wooden shelves are perfect for displaying small plants, flowers, pictures, candles, and other knick-knacks.

Not only do these shelves add a decorative boho touch to your interior design but they add extra storage space.

White tassel pillows are an inexpensive way to add some boho style to an aesthetic dorm room.

To finish off this boho look, just add some small succulents or snake plants.

Not only are plants aesthetic but there are so many benefits to having indoor plants.

Adding a hammock chair in the corner is another fun aesthetic room piece.

Since having a chair hanging from the ceiling will not be allowed in most college dorm rooms, you can purchase a stand that is sturdy enough to hang your hammock chair.
