Looking to give new life to your bathroom? Ditch the drab, standard-issue shower curtains in your dorm and look for one that fits your personality! Inspired by the wide range of styles available on CafePress, we decided to go on our own hunt for the perfect curtain.
Periodic Table Shower Curtain: Add a scientific flair to any bathroom with this Periodic Table of Elements curtain from CafePress. This is great for those majoring in science or even those who just love all things chemistry-related.
Boho Boutique Utopia Shower Curtain: This hippie-chic curtain gives a bright pop of color to a once-bland bathroom. Available at Target, this patterned bathroom accessory won’t break the bank either!
Manatee Shower Curtain: This is one of my favorites. Any animal lover will be happy to own this manatee curtain. How can you resist these adorable “cows of the sea”?
Woodland Circle Shower Curtain: This geometric-patterned curtain is from JcPenney. It will be a fun, new addition to any bathroom!
Llamas Shower Curtain: I don’t even know were to start with this one. This Llama Lover shower curtain is over all funny. This would be a great gift to give to a friend on their birthday for a good laugh.
Now you can shower in style any time you want! Did any of these curtains catch your eye? Post a comment below.

With so many different styles to choose from, trying to figure out how to decorate your dorm room can be overwhelming. We did some research to find out the hottest trends for this year. The trends we’ve included below are some of our absolute favorites and are sure to make your room the place to be!
Bed Bath & Beyond Trend: “Calypso”
This trend is all about attention-grabbing patterns. The Calypso Duvet cover (only $79.99) is the main attraction with its vibrant coloring and large pattern…you’ll have a hard time looking away! The purples, oranges and greens all complement each other really well and bring a warmth to the room.
PBDorm Trend: “Vintage Rock”
For all of you music fanatics out there, if you’re looking for that “vintage rock” vibe for your room, this trend is the way to go. Liven up your wall space with posters of your favorite groups or concerts. Take the music edge one step further and add old records to the walls as well. Tie the room together with a quilt that features neutrals colors – PBdorm ($119.00) has a great example that fits with this theme perfectly.
Target Trend: “Zebra”
Animal print has been huge this year, with black and white zebra patterns stealing the spotlight. Go for a twist on this trend by adding a pop of color to a zebra bedspread whether it be by colored sheets or a hot pink bed rest (available at select campus bookstores). Target offers a great deal with their zebra print style; You get 1 Pillowcase, a Comforter, 1 Fitted Sheet, 1 Sham, 1 Flat Sheet, and a Bed skirt for only $59.99. That is definitely something to go wild over.

As someone who is always on the hunt for an easy way to add spice to my room, I am so excited to share this project with you. While browsing the design blog, Poppytalk, I found my inspiration for the newest edition of DIY Dorm. Why not take bottles and jars meant for the recycling and turn them into something beautiful and colorful? I decided to start with a small, empty jar and turn it into a pencil holder. Keep reading for tips and instructions!
What You’ll Need:
1 Glass jar
What You’ll Do:
1) Remove the label from the jar you’ve chosen. (Tip: In my experience, a stubborn label can usually be removed with a Brillo pad, water, and soap if needed.) Rinse out any remaining contents and let dry.
2) Add a dollop of paint to the inside of the jar. Slowly rotate and swirl it around until the entire inside is covered with the paint. This may take a few dollops, depending on the color and thickness of the paint. (Tip: I used a paint brush to help spread stubborn patches.) Let dry.
3) Add any other additions to the outside of your jar, whether it be stenciled letters or appliques.
Add some water and fresh flowers or an electric candle to add some mood lighting to your room. I went with a stylish pencil holder but it is up to you! Either way, you’re left with a quaint new edition to your dorm. Enjoy!
