Back to school with Bobby Berk’s dorm room makeovers

Bobby Berk will provide style inspiration for students and young adults to help transform their space to match their current aesthetic this Back to College season.

Command™ Brand has announced its first official Director of Dorm Design, Bobby Berk, known for his fearless forays into designing with flair! Berk is of course an out and proud design expert, Emmy-nominated host of Queer Eye and author of Right at Home: How Good Design is Good for The Mind, out on September 12, 2023.

He recently made headlines after sharing his top 10 Airnbnb properties. Now, he’s ready to help college students transform their dorms. “College is such a pivotal time for personal growth and expression in a young person’s life. I’m thrilled to be working with Command™ Brand to provide dorm design inspiration that allows them to express who they are,” said Berk. “Tying in current design trends and Command’s damage-free/tool-free products, I designed these four unique rooms to spark creativity and encourage students to boldly live out their current era.”

A recent Command™ Brand survey found that 63% of current and former college students agree that having an organized and decorated room helps set them up for a successful school year and 79% of Gen Z like their home décor to reflect their identity. So, Command™ Brand teamed up with Bobby Berk to encourage students and young adults to fearlessly express whatever era they are in by designing their space to reflect exactly who they are.

“At Command™ Brand, we believe life is more joyful when your space reflects you,” said Tate Galvin, global vice president, Home Improvement, for 3M™. “Which is why we deployed Bobby as our Director of Dorm Design to share on-trend inspiration for whatever era someone may find themselves in. Command™ Brand products empower you to personalize and have fun with your space without tools and remove cleanly so you can change your mind anytime without consequence.”

Berk worked hand-in-hand with the brand to design four unique rooms representing a few of his personal favorite trends for the season using a variety of Command™ Brand products. These four rooms are:

  • “Boho Plant Parent”: A neutral-toned palette with pops of greenery and playful textures for the plant lovers.
  • “Retro Music”: For the inner rockers, this room takes a modern approach on the eighties with colorful vintage pieces and a string light/record display wall.
  • “World Traveler”: Hues of blue and vintage maps wrap this travel-inspired room for the wanderlust.
  • “Super Glam”: For those who love fashion and want to show off their personal style, this room includes disco balls, magazine clippings and shades of pink.
