This year Darnell took to TikTok once again to give a grand tour of her bedroom in the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority house. A culture wildly unfamiliar to me, I was blown away by the level of detail, sophistication, and pride. More so than ever before, dorm rooms have become a vibrant display of aesthetics. Follow the hashtags #DormRoom and #DormDecor, and you’ll step into a world of videos where students unveil their magical makeovers, turning once barren spaces into lively havens.

And it doesn’t stop there. According to Town & Country, some students have taken to hiring interior designers to outfit their dorm rooms. Designers such as Mississippi-based After Five Designs and Essentials with Eden have garnered a substantial following with their dorm decorating services. With zeal and flair, they handle every aspect, starting from those initial exciting conversations, all the way through the hunt for perfect pieces, culminating in the exhilarating installations that breathe life into these student sanctuaries.

From upholstered headboards that cleverly fit over the wooden bed posts to peel-and-stick wallpaper and perfectly curated decor throughout, the dorms of today seem to be a far cry from what I experienced not too long ago. I have to say, I love it! The chance to express yourself and craft a sophisticated oasis even with the tiniest of canvases – it’s a recipe for nurturing a deep love for your space and embracing the art of living beautifully. There is nothing The Glam Pad celebrates more!
