Just because the white walls of dorm rooms are forbidden any coats of paint, doesn’t mean we Dormistas or Dormistos can’t create some life and fun with coloured décor. It is the easiest way to decorate your room without going to the lengths of using wallpaper or bringing in huge furniture. With the help of runway trends, certain colours and patterns can determine what current shade can liven up your room.

My favourite designers, Proenza Schouler never seem to dull audiences with their eccentric choices of colours, youthful patterns and the clever usage of combining them all. Lucky for the interior world, the edginess and bright hues seen on the runways are always the popular colours to enhance a college student’s bedroom. Be inspired by the colour choices these Fashionistas are wearing, with their eccentric and ever-so-bright colour ways.

If you have white walls, white sheets and white furniture all around, brighten up your home décor with this eccentric colour and pattern trend. The items below from pillows, lighting décor rugs and wall paintings, can make your room shine like a rainbow.
