1. String Lights

Fairy lights are a definite must for EVERY ROOM and not just your dorms. There are many different colours to choose from, depending on your preference. However, yellow lights are the BEST as not only do they light up your room beautifully, but they also give off a dreamy and nice soft ambience to the room.

3. Alphabet Letter Decoration.

There’s nothing more effective than brainwashing yourself that you are at “home.” The letters are available in pastel colours and pastels are light colours that help us feel happy and tranquil, giving off a calm and at-ease feeling, just like the feeling of home. They also add a nice pop of colours to your plain room.
