1. String Lights
String lights are my favorite way to decorate any room because there’s so many styles and options to choose from! You can get flashing colorful lights or star-shaped white lights. I currently have mine as a rectangular border around my bed, but you can line your whole room with them as well.

This was my favorite piece of decor for my freshmen year dorm room. If you’re into a boho look definitely invest in a cute tapestry.

Do you have an empty shelf or is your desk is looking a little empty? Put up a lightbox! These are great cause you can write your favorite quote and change it whenever you want.

5. Wire Wall Grid
A wire wall grid is a great addition above your desk or empty wall space. You can add polaroids, pictures, accessories, and other clip-on items to decorate it.
6. Gallery Wall
I have a mini gallery wall above my desk and I love the look of it. It can also be really inexpensive if you do it yourself. Simply print some quotes and buy picture frames from the dollar store and use command strips to hang them up.
7. Wall Shelves
I also have wall shelves up next to my bed since that wall was pretty empty and I put some fake succulents on them. Wall shelves are so cute and a perfect way to add decor without cluttering your room.

If you’re into light decor then try hanging a neon sign on your walls or empty shelves. You can also find tons of different styles and shapes such as a cactus or a cloud shape!

10. Cozy Bedding
There’s nothing I love more than shopping for bedding. You can either get something super simple or colorful and patterned. I personally love the look of a clean white pinched comforter with printed sheets. However, if you’re into patterns than a floral or mandala printed comforter with plain sheets is really cute as well.
11. Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are a great and fun way to add some decoration to your room. I currently have a good vibes and cactus-shaped throw pillow on my bed (can you tell I’m obsessed with cactus). My favorite place to buy them is Society6 because they have so many options to choose from! If you’re looking for a cheaper option, Target has some as well.

Garland is a great decor item to put around your bed frame or on blank walls to fill up space. You can get a vine or floral garland depending on the look you’re looking for, and even use it as a photo backdrop.

13. Shaggy Rug
What’s not to like about a super soft fur rug? Faux fur of course! Put this shaggy white rug by your bedside to give your room a clean and cozy vibe. My favorite part about shaggy rugs is that they make the perfect backdrop for flay lays and Instagram pictures!

14. Accent Chair
A nice accent chair can add some color and style to your room. Not only that but it’s a great place to read a book or write in your planner! I’ve been loving the look of oversized plush saucer chairs. They’re so cozy and cute to add to an empty corner of your room.

15. Flower Headboard
As you can tell by now I love bedroom decor with plants, but can you blame me? They add so much life and color to a room! I’ve seen flower headboards all over Tumblr and Pinterest and I’m obsessed with this idea. This is a great bedroom decor DIY project that you can find easy tutorials for on Youtube and Pinterest.

Polaroids are the perfect bedroom decor for small rooms because they barely take up any space. You can tell a whole story through pictures and make your room look beautiful! My favorite look is to have polaroids hanging up on string with mini clothespins.

17. Chalkboard Wall
I used to see this all the time back in 2012 Tumblr and I love it! A chalkboard wall is a great addition to any wall of your room that has nothing on it. You can either buy chalkboard paint or a self-adhesive decal for smaller sections. Make sure to look on Pinterest for inspiration on what to draw but you can do anything such as draw a design or write a quote.

18. Record Player
Not only is a record player a seriously cute addition to any bedroom but it’s a great way to listen to music. You can recreate the picture above in a corner of your room with your record player and vinyl collection!
You can either have one full body mirror in your room for your day to day outfit pictures or a bunch of small ones! Mirrors are great because they come in a ton of different designs and shapes so you can hang them up anywhere to add more decor to your room.

20. Collage Wall
Lastly, if you’re big on pictures then a photo or collage wall is for you. You can do this a lot of different ways and styles. You can use regular printed photos, magazine pages, polaroid pictures, and even posters. Simply place as many photos as you can on one part of your wall, trying to keep them close together so there’s no space between them.
