6 Items to Transform Your Dorm or Apartment Decor

6 Items to Transform Your Dorm or Apartment Decor

Ah, August – the first half of the month is spent soaking up what’s left of the summer sun, and the second half is spent scrambling to get everything together before another school year starts.

Whether you’re a freshman looking to start fresh in a new setting, or you’re a recent grad who wants to up your game in your first *real* apartment, here are some ways to upgrade your space with photo decor:

Framed prints over a desk


Can’t choose just one picture? Try a wall of prints. You can create a beautiful wall of prints using either all one size – I love squares – or using a gallery wall template to make a certain shape. You can also put your most treasured photos in a frame, perfecting for displaying the moments that you never want to forget – your family vacation at the beach or you and your besties on graduation day. Have commitment issues when it comes to frames? You don’t need one for displaying photos – order a Metal Print with an easel!

Canvas print hanging over bed


There’s more to printing than just on paper. Add some texture – and turn one of your photos into a work of art – by printing on canvas. (Move over, Michelangelo!)

Buzz Books photo books on desk

A photo book

Remember when you had a tiny, background role in your high school musical? You can bring every photo you took from the rehearsals, performances, and cast parties with you – complete in a Buzz Book.

Wood photo magnets on fridge

Custom kitchen decor

Turn something that’s practical – a vessel for coffee, hot cocoa, tea, wine (not judging) – into a holder of memories with a Photo Mug. Plus, a fridge doesn’t have to be boring – decorate it with Wood Magnets!

Custom photo calendar above record player

Custom calendar

Tell a story throughout the year with a custom calendar. (Perhaps you’re detailing the adventures of Mr. Tibbs, your treasured feline.) Plus, you’ll be able to stay on top of all your upcoming exams, hot dates, and family gatherings.

Photo blanket on couch

Photo blankets

Forget blankets with arms – cuddle up on the couch with a truly unique blanket for the ultimate hygge.
