To think #thebellainsiderdorm is turning four years old is a wild idea. My room undergoes changes every year, but one thing has remained the same: lots of color! As I've grown older, my personal style has changed. Things are still mighty colorful around here, but I'm inspired by soft tones, greenery, and imperfection.

I love modern Boho style, because it combines pieces that are rich in color, eclectic, and unique - almost anything goes! When PBteen challenged me to show you friends how to incorporate Bohemian style in my own room, it gave me the perfect excuse to do a bit of spring cleaning and redecorate for my last few months in college. I loved the way it turned out! Here are some easy ways you can incorporate modern Boho style in your own dorm room:

1. Mix different textures and bold patterns.
This Metallic Printed Pillow Cover is such a fun pattern and I love the way it shines in the light when I open up my windows. I wanted to keep the colors in my room light pink for my room to be feminine and soft, so I love my Solid Blush Pink Super Soft Organic Duvet and Sham with my Classic Organic Sheet Set. If you want to kick it up a notch, go with a bold duvet cover like this Zadey Patchwork Quilt + Sham or even a patterned rug like this Coastal Boho Rug or Fluffy Fabulous Rug.

2. Incorporate spots of greenery.
Another way to easily incorporate Boho style in a room is by adding some of your favorite plants. The most natural answer for a dorm plant are succulents, because they're low-maintenance, but I love air plants even more! They don't require any soil, so they're even easier to maintain than a succulent, and not to mention...super cute! These Triangle Wall Plant Holders are great for air plants and super easy to hang with the help of a few hooks. I also recommend dried flowers, because they're a beautiful way to keep your favorite memories. If you're into DIYs like me, paper flowers are also a fun addition.

3. Add metallic decorations.
I love the way gold plays with the typical jewel tones of modern Boho style, so I decided to add in a few touches of my own like this DIY gold letter garland along with the Metallic Printed Pillow Cover. I'm a sucker for any kind of garland, but a letter one is simple to make and an easy way to show off your favorite phrase or even use as a last-minute photo prop with friends!

Giving myself a room refresh was exactly what I needed to finish off my school year. This wall will be constantly changing until the school year ends, so be sure to come back and see its progress! Keep scrolling to see some other Bella Insider-approved Boho favorites.
