We all love holiday breaks and a little off-campus time to relieve ourselves from the stress of school. There’s truly no feeling like sleeping in your own bed and indulging in a home-cooked meal. With Thanksgiving right around the corner and the entire family waiting to see you after a hiatus, there’s bound to be questions at the dinner table. So pass the stuffing and drench your mashed potatoes with gravy – things are about to get interesting.
With colorful leaves, crisp air, hot apple cider and one night of the year that allows you to be anything you want, October is surely a favorable month. Whether you love participating in Halloween activities or prefer simply staying in to watch a marathon of festive movies, this listicle has something for everyone:
Pictures & Polaroids: A great way to surround yourself with all the fun memories you’ve had with your friends.
Tapestries: The perfect way to make your room look that much closer to an ad for Urban Outfitters.
String lights: They set a relaxing mood and keep you from having to turn on that obnoxious fluorescent light.
Throw pillows: Only here for decoration, but they make your space look so much more put together. Plus, there’s never a limit on the number of throw pillows that qualifies as too many!
Rugs: No one likes having a boring floor, so why not spice it up with a fuzzy rug? Besides adding some dimension, it’ll make your space look bigger too.
DIY wall art: Save money by painting your own wall art! Find supplies at a local supply store (like Michael’s) and be proud to hang up your hard work for everyone to see.
Letter light boxes: So you can share all your favorite lyrics, inspirational quotes or even just your favorite college bible quote… “She is clothed with leggings and oversized t-shirts and she naps without fear of the future.” -Probably College 31:25.
Throw blankets: So you can snuggle up with that special person in your life or that other special person…Netflix.
Plants/Succulents: Sometimes you spend hours (or even days) in your dorm room, so why not bring the outdoors inside to enjoy?
