Everyone gets a little nervous at some point, it can range from all different things like having guests over or wanting to make sure there isn’t room for monsters under your bed. You can take up all that empty space will a little décor. A time décor really mattered in my life was my first semester of freshman year. I was in a new and faraway place and I was feeling really homesick. The things I put in the dorm really made a difference in how I felt at the end of the day.
At the end of the day, it was really nice to always come home to a little piece of home. I had pictures of my family everywhere in frames that were similar to the ones in my house. They were rustic black metal frames with fun pictures inside them. These are similar to the frames that are hanging all around my house and looking at them made me not feel so far away. Along with pictures, I had also taken up an old crotched blanket that my grandmother had made. It would lay over my bedspread and just really bring the room together with a nice homey feel. I also added a wax warmer that smelled like my home too.
The wax warmer was in the shape of an elephant which was all around my room at home so it just adds a little bit more or home to a faraway strange place. Dorms are hard to make feel like home because of the brick walls and the one small window but the décor that I had put in there had really helped me get through a really hard time. Even though it can sometimes seem insignificant a little décor goes a long way.
