We’re just about to enter college move-in season. In fact, chances are good that some of your friends have begun to move into their college dorms already, and, as a result, your various social media feeds–Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram–are all but inundated with a slew of college dorm photos. Most of these, I assume, are pretty standard. You know, some tapestries here and fairy lights there. Nice, of course, but nothing all that special. Then, of course, you probably have that… one friend. You know, the one who spent their entire summer on Pinterest and interior design blogs, curating photos of celebrity apartments and that one extravagant dorm room that went viral last year until their dorm, too, could look like the inside of a luxury penthouse rather than the coffin-sized cinderblock box it probably is.
The way I feel about these types of dorm rooms is similar to the way I feel about doing your homework with calligraphy markers for the sole purpose of putting photos of it on Tumblr–it’s not for me, personally, but I would be bereft if other people did not pursue this lifestyle, since I sure do love looking at the pictures. And, no matter where you fall on the dorm room spectrum, I feel confident that you, too, will enjoy looking at the pictures. So, here are some super-extra-luxurious dorm rooms that will probably make you feel a little sick with jealousy:
1. I mean:
2. I sort of refuse to believe that this is actually a university-provided dorm room?
3. The key, I suppose, is securing a coordinating color scheme with your roommate so the room appears cohesive:
4. Or only taking photos of your side of the room:
5. Or getting a single:
6. If you loft your bed, you can create a cool hideaway underneath with a curtain and fairy lights:
7. Don’t forget your desk area, either:
8. I am GASPING:
11. This is so…sweet:
12. If you want more of a boho vibe, make sure you get fairy lights, sheer netting, tapestries, and a map of the world:
13. And put a ukulele on your bed:
14. And make sure you take photos on a gray, rainy day:
15. Seriously. It’ll look great:
