Dorm Room Inspiration: Black and White Decor

Decorating your dorm room is one of the many exciting parts about going away for University. You get to design a new space to begin the next chapter of your life. We want to help you transform your blank canvas into a space you will love.

Sticking to a colour scheme can be a great way to make your dorm room look put together and stylish. Black and white is a classic palette that will transform your small, bare room into the chic pad that shows off your good taste. These modern products will both save space and add interesting design. Our dorm room secret: use 3M tape and 3M hooks to mount wall décor and picture frames for a drill-less solution.

Umbra back to school collection has everything you need for a functional and well designed dorm room.
