Summer Décor for Your Dorm

Ellen Zacarias

Chase out the wintry dust bunnies and welcome this summer’s colors and patterns into your dorm.

Summer is the season of life and new beginnings. Colors. Patterns. Birds. Flowers. As you clear out your winter gear, you can incorporate the trends of the season with your room décor. Many of these pieces are versatile and will easily carry through summer.
