15 A+ Decorating Ideas for Your College Dorm Room
Despite the parties (!) and no classes ’til 11 am (!), there’s nothing that makes college life lose its luster faster than a living space that’s approximately 9 feet by 8 feet with a “no holes in the wall” policy. But dorm decorating doesn’t have to be limited to a taped-up One Direction poster and a pile of socks in the corner. These 15 dorm decorating ideas pack some major personality in a small space (and on a small budget). But good luck getting to class on time… you’ll never want to leave your cozy room when it’s this tricked out.
