Decorating a dorm room can be a bit of a dilemma. You’re dealing with small budgets, small spaces, shared spaces, dormitory furniture, cinderblock walls, the list goes on. So sometimes to make it your own takes a little bit of imagination and creativity. The flyers are coming in the mailbox with suggestions, and I thought a little inspiration might help to prioritize purchases or even save you a little money. Above: White walls and above-the-bed shelving/storage bins pull together this room quite nicely; throw in a pop of color and an interesting art piece, lighting and chair and you’ve got a really serene room perfect for focusing on studying. See the slideshow after the jump.
