Dorm Room Inspiration

Gingham Pillow // Vase // Cup (Ralph Lauren) // Lobster Pillow // Hydrangeas // Plaid Blanket // Painted Oar

I am currently about a week away from starting my junior year in college (yikes). It's full of trying to enjoy my last week of soaking up the sun, yet at the same time, mentally preparing myself for a new year. I spend so much time in my dorm room studying, sleeping, watching Netflix, etc. that I need to make it as homey as possible. I am dreaming of the day that I move into an apartment so I can decorate it, but for now, I will have to settle on a shoebox-sized dorm room. 

My taste in decor is classic and traditional. I don't like anything too girly, trendy, or modern. I like a little bit of elegance, sophistication, coastal charm, and Georgian architecture. (think nantucket, leather, brass, gingham, plaid, etc.)

Since I am getting older, I want to kind of tone down the colors and class it up a bit. I have changed the accent color of my room for the past 2 years. The first year being navy & coral and this past year was navy, yellow, & pink.

This year, I have decided on navy & red with blue and white chinoiserie and plaid/tartan accents. I think the tartan throw blanket from LL Bean is my favorite piece.  Once I settle in I will definitely post some more photos of everything! Do you have any decor recommendations? I especially could use some inspiration for the wall, because other than frames and an oar, I am stuck. 

You can follow my 'home' board on Pinterest because that is where I get a lot of my inspiration! Also, I will be showing some of the items I get on snapchat! Follow me at (tayloraanthony)
