The perfect way to make your bed or futon more cozy is to add a bunch of throw pillows. It adds color and and warmth to your bed. There is no better feeling than falling on your bed into a sea of pillows.

2. Gallery wall.

One way to cover the walls of your dorm is to make a gallery wall. You can either make a gallery wall with prints and saying or you can fill frames with pictures of friends and family. Arrange the frames on the wall and voila!

3. Fuzzy blankets.

Another addition to your bed needs to be fuzzy blankets. Draped across your bed or futon, blankets are the perfect accessory. They are also useful for those cold nights in your dorm.

4. Fresh flowers or succulents.

Plants are a great way to make any room feel like home. Fresh flowers or succulents are an easy way to add color and life to a dorm room. If live plants aren't your thing, fake plants give off the same look and feel.

Candles can be a great way to create warm comforting light in a dorm room. They also can make the room smell however you want it to smell. Most colleges, however, do not allow candles, so maybe opt for a Scentsy or room spray.
