Back to School: The Dorm - Junior

Junior year... everything at school is old hat... real life is still a year away... it's your Hellenistic Period! During this time you learn who you are, change your major to what you really want to be, have a crisis on consciousness and come out stronger.
My favorite dorm decor from my junior year was the time I hung and entire bouquet from the ceiling, individually no less with push pins and fishing line. It gave the illusion of an upside down flower garden.

Light weight items can easily me hung form the ceiling, even if the ceiling is a drop ceiling. Push pins can easily push in the drop ceiling and are undetectable when removed. if you would rather not use push pins, you can go with hooks for suspended ceilings. They simply clip onto the splines, or grid, of the ceiling

 There are so many great ceiling adornments and they are great for adding height to a space which is hard in a dorm. Here are some great ideas for adding height to a room!

Tassels are a great way to add color and movement in a dorm room. This tassel garland from The Flair Exchange on Etsy adds some bling with the addition of gold tassels.
