Dorm room living in style.

It's that time again for students to head back to school. For some college students it will be their first time leaving home. One way to help alleviate the homesick blues is to help them make their dorm room feel a little bit like home. Warm up their space with colors, texture and personality. Here are some fantastic ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

What college student wouldn't be proud to call this their home away from home?

This room features a D.I.Y. headboard made out of an old grain sack.

Before, typical cork board:

After, message board loaded with style:

The top of a standard dresser is the perfect place to personalize with great accessories.

Recently bloggers came together for a "Dorm Room Design Day" where they each put together a design board featuring design elements perfect for a dorm room. Get inspired by their ideas.
