3 Dorm & Apartment Essentials Every Fashionable Collegiette Needs

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UCLA chapter.

The school year has begun, and for most of us that means moving back into the dorms or apartments. It’s fun, but can also be a bit stressful if you don’t know exactly what to bring with you. For me, the first thing I think about is decorations- is that bad? Then from there I start to think about the things I actually need.  But let’s be honest, isn’t thinking about how you’re going to decorate your new room just as exciting as thinking about starting your new school year.

This is why I made a quick list of items you absolutely must have in your room to give it that extra edge.

1.) Decorative Pillows

They are super cute and super comfy.

2.) Wall Décor

Get something that shows off your personal style!

3.) Rugs

This can transform those boring wood floors into something more aesthetically pleasing.

However you chose to decorate your space try to do something that shows off your personal style and lets you feel comfortable. Decorating your space is important, it allows you to express yourself and can also make you feel more at home and relaxed.
