Cue the futons, shower caddies, and laundry baskets … the college move-in has rolled around again. Turning a dorm into a home isn’t easy with limited space and a college budget, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick with stark school-issued bunk beds and drab desks. We pulled together three stylish, practical dorm room looks — the perfect backdrops for studying relaxing, and everything in between. Get inspired with these dorm mood boards and book a Tasker to help bring your favorite to life.
Natural textures and neutral colors create a relaxed, artsy feel. Inspired by wood, wicker, and a pop of greenery, this is the perfect backdrop for a laid-back Saturday morning studying or (more realistically) lounging.

If Carrie Bradshaw designed a college dorm, this is what we imagine it would look like. We mixed vintage pieces like the mirror and plush wing chair with a more modern lamp and cowhide ottoman for an eclectic old school-new school vibe.

Night owls and lovers of all nighters, this is the look for you. Inspired by big city living, we paired monochrome and metal accents to evoke a sophisticated New York City loft.
