Dorm Room Round Up: Brights

Dorm Room Decor Round Up

Future so bright you gotta wear shades, folks. While I loved the first ‘black and white’ dorm round up that Abby did, I think my 18-year-old self is more attracted to these crazy bright colors (as we all know I love me some bright colors). In fact, one of my most favorite comments from My Living Room post was someone who said, ‘It looks like SpongeBob SquarePants designed this room,’ which makes me laugh every time, although I’m pretty sure that wasn’t the commenters intention. It has since become a joke that we reference constantly around here with ‘that rug doesn’t quite feel SpongeBob enough for me’ or ‘that’s so much more RugRats than SpongeBob,’ etc. Although the joke is on me because I have slowly removed the yellow from my living room and that can’t be an accident.

ANYWAY. I love bright colors, so if I were a dorm room I would probably lean this way. Thanks, Abby, for pulling this post together.

    I cannot imagine a scenario in which my college roommates and I would have dropped $127 on a painting for our dorm. That said, I LOVE all that color. If only I had been this cool in college…

      Yeah, me to :) There are some things that are more ‘aspirational’ i suppose. :)

    Re: the comment about Sponge Bob and you slowly removing the yellow from your living room… I know you’ve said that you are constantly restyling, so I’m sure it still looks incredibly enviable, but shame that comment subtly changed your perspective. I for one, really liked the cheery hits of yellow. There really weren’t that many, but what was there was very sunny.
    Always looking forward to your next reveal! Thanks so much for the inspiration.

  8. Emily I love these colour combos! And as a reader from Australia, I am always amazed at how reasonably priced items are in America. Ah….to be able to shop there and not pay the huge prices we pay here for the same things!
