If you’re a Swiftie like me (or even just a person on the internet), you’ve been exposed to at least *some* content from Taylor Swift’s “Eras” tour. True to its name, this concert circuit celebrates every era of Taylor Swift thus far — from her debut as a teenager with her self-titled album all the way through her latest, “Midnights.” And in the spirit of this, fans have been reminiscing on all the different looks, sounds, and vibes Swift has graced us with for the past 17 years. 

Of course, not all of Swift’s fans were able to snag tickets to a leg of her “Eras” tour — and even those who did get the chance to see her live may still crave more. So, whether you want to relive the best moments from your “Eras” concert experience, or you simply hope to create the magic you feel when listening to her genre-spanning music in your space, this guide will help you find decor products to represent every single Swiftie era.

But I have one question before I begin: Are you ready for it?

This rustic teal blue wall clock matches the cover of Swift's 2006 eponymous debut album, giving off a vintage vibe reminiscent of early Swift without flat-out screaming, “I LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT!” Something about it just makes me want to sing “Our Song” in front of my college crush.

Gold was the unofficial color of Swift’s 2009 "Fearless" tour … just as “sparkly” was the unofficial aesthetic. That’s why these golden sunburst mirrors are calling out, you belong with me to every "Fearless" stan. Students need at least a mirror or two in their dorm room, so it only makes sense for Swifties to have some that remind them not only of Swift’s fashion choices during this era, but also of the rising pop music star she was fast becoming.

When I moved into college, I was so innocent that I didn’t realize I needed to pack curtains. But if you also like to wake up to a calm, dim room, then you’ll be enchanted to meet these lilac curtains that have the same ethereal effect of Swift’s purple dress from her "Speak Now" album cover.

ICYMI, the phrase “not a lot going on at the moment” holds a lot of meaning for Swifties. In 2013, Swift released her iconic “22” music video from her "Red" album, and in that video she was wearing a T-shirt with this saying. The phrase then returned in 2020 in the form of an Instagram caption, which fans didn’t think much of at the time … until Swift then released her surprise album, "folklore," soon after. She used the phrase as an IG caption again later that year, preceding the release of her *next* surprise album, "evermore." Naturally, fans have now come to understand that the phrase means there’s actually quite a lot going on at the moment. If you want to show you’re in on the joke, snag this throw blanket to drape across your bed or a chair. It’s fuzzy, extremely soft, and lightweight, so you’ll probably want to stay stay stay indoors to cuddle up and listen to her "Red" album on repeat.

These iridescent Polaroid picture frames are so "1989," it almost hurts! Even if you weren’t born the same year as the artist, commemorate your own celebration of the album by filling a blank space on your nightstand, dresser, or desk with another subtle nod to Swift that doubles as cute decor.

Dorm walls can be so boring, but Swift’s "reputation" era is the furthest thing from that. This print, featuring a quote Swift coined during this era, "There will be no explanation," and snake drawing (IYKYK), will give you a boost of attitude whenever you need it. Much like Swift’s "reputation" era as a whole, you can call it what you want, but I think this print is gorgeous.

This is probably the most in-your-face Swiftie decor item on this whole list, but if you love the pastels and fun, summery vibes of her "Lover" era, you’ll absolutely love this purple neon “Lover” sign.

These moss hexagons are giving all kinds of woodsy, "folklore" feels. In fact, during the "folklore" segment of the "Eras" tour, Swift has a whole moss-covered cabin that she sings on top of. Unlike that large set piece, these hexagons aren’t big or heavy, so they’ll be easy to mount to your college dorm wall with Command hooks or mounting tape — no stagehands required!

This white decorative tree is the best item to represent the "evermore" era. The album gives cozy, cold-weather vibes that make you want to whisper ‘tis the damn season over a steaming mug of tea — similarly, this tree evokes that energy with its low-key yet festive vibes.

These "Midnights"-themed stickers are the finishing touch for your Taylor Swift eras college dorm room. The pack comes with 30 stickers, so you have a ton of great options to choose from. With lots of purple and blue tones, these stickers would add the prettiest lavender haze to your laptop case, emotional support water bottle, or anything else that needs a little extra touch of Swift’s magic.
