Dorm days are upon us! If you're excited to take a crack at decorating your own *adult* living space for the first time, you're not alone: Etsy just released their findings for the most searched-for trends in all of dorm decor, and their categories are filled with some seriously stylish inspiration. Whether you're a plant mom in the making or totally zodiac-obsessed, there's a trend for you. Click through to see which looks are going to be HUGE this school year, and maybe even pick up a couple of tips to transform that not-so-fabulous dorm furniture.
Pegboard: It makes perfect sense that a modular, versatile organizational system would be a major game-changer when it comes to small spaces like dorms. And we love how some makers are getting creative with the shapes their pegboard takes... see if you can spot another top trend crossover. Our picks: Wallflower Pine Pegboard Wall Shelf ($98); XOCollective Little Pegboard Set ($71); Little Anana Monstera Leaf Pegboard ($71)
Monstera Everything: We've been mad over monstera leaves for a little bit now. And while filling your dorm room with actual live greenery might sound great in theory, we guarantee that your hall RA would be a bit more comfortable with these jungle-inspired finds (plus, you won't have to worry about them dying during finals week). Our picks: Inside Papers Monstera Poster ($15); Pottery Lodge Monstera Leaf Ring Dish ($24); UnkyDsgn Monstera Leaf Night Light Wall Art ($85); The Lemony Snippets Palm Leaves Printable ($6)
Envy-Inducing Headboards: Sure, most colleges won't let you entirely ditch their dated, standard-issue furniture, but there's no rule saying you can't at least pretty things up a bit. These low-commitment, high-impact options rely on super-strength velcro or simple wall-friendly adhesive to achieve their supremely stylish look. Your roomie will definitely do a double-take. Our picks: Prana Decor Half Mandala Headboard Decal ($16); Gray Whale Home Tall Dorm Headboard ($114); Gray Whale Home Tall Dorm Headboard ($108); Sir Face Graphics Chinoiserie Bed Headboard Wall Sticker ($34)
Girl Power Graphics: College students are bringing their feminist activism out of the classroom and into their dorms with inspiring, fiery, and badass prints. Anyone with a drawer full of "The Future Is Female" tees will want to snap up these empowering pieces. Our picks: Frankie Print Co. Girl Power Pink Throw Pillow ($20); Lanatema Feminist Embroidery Hoop Wall Art ($72); 1LittleYellowHouse "You're Like Really Pretty" Mirror Decal ($5); Hello Happy Print Co. Feminist Art Print ($17); Calhoun & Co. Mamas Pink Blanket ($98)
