This post is about decorating a travel themed dorm room.
Now, you just need a college dorm room theme or color palette. A travel themed dorm is not only inspirational, but it’s classic! A travel themed dorm is not likely to be a common dorm room theme, making your room super cool and unique.
The key to a classic, travel-themed dorm room is incorporating travel decor into every space in your room, without overdoing it. In this post, I’ll show you how to add elegant decor all over your room for a put-together, classic travel themed college dorm room.
Here are 9 showstopping decor ideas for a travel-themed college dorm room.
Travel-Themed Dorm Room Decor
These wall canvases are perfect for the base of a gallery wall above your desk, or using as decor throughout the whole room. I love that they’re black and white, so they fit with any color palette.
These vintage postcards compliment the above wall canvases extremely well, and would be perfect for making in to a gallery wall. Plus – only $8 for 32 postcards? What a steal!
Globe Pen Holder
A large globe I can confidently say will take up much more room than it is worth in your dorm room. Keep the same aesthetic and use this pencil and pen holder in place of it – decor with a function!
Scratch Off Map
I bought one of these for my partner, since we travel frequently together. This is a super cool piece of decor if you’ve been quite a few places or plan to be in the near future. This gold one is especially elegant and would complement many dorm room themes nicely.
This is quite the literal travel pillow! The elegant writing doesn’t draw too much attention to the pillow, allowing it to blend in with your theme.
I know, I know. More wall decor! Depending on how much wall space you have to decorate, you’ll want to make sure that you decorate it as much as possible without cluttering it. These road signs are perfect for being one of your statement pieces.
In your dorm room, you’ll want to keep 2-3 statement pieces, and the rest just accent pieces. I had my statement pieces above my desk, next to the wall on my bed, and my 3rd and final statement piece behind the head of my bed.
Vintage Stamp Bedding
This vintage stamp bedding will definitely set the tone for your entire room. While this bedding is super flattering and will bring a ton of character to your room, make sure that you use other travel themed decor sparingly – you don’t want to overdue it!
Display Your Travels!
This gold wire grid is absolutely amazing for displaying the places you have traveled to. I love these wire grids since they allow you to create such a wonderful display – you can add shelves, other wire grids, and it’s easy to pin items other than pictures to it. This is perfect for displaying your travel adventures!
World Map Watercolor Tapestry
Just like the bedding, this is another statement piece. However, it’s gorgeous! Adding a tapestry to a dorm room is a great way to cover a ton of wall space with decor for a super affordable price.
