Can A Dorm Be Stylish On A Dime?

Here are some fetching ideas for dorm rooms
 I have been collecting on Pinterest.
The first room has pretty elements that could easily 
be found in a thrift store or consignment shop.
The white mirror, brass lamp, and accessories all full of character.
I love the graphic element behind the cliche' dorm bed.
Notice the covered bulletin board for jewelry.

So, what are some items to be looking for?
1) Vintage finds that will add charm.
2) A cozy rug (hide that dorm floor).
3) Floor pillows for comfort and friends.
4) Paint your cork board.

5) A pallet (Paint it. If you cannot hang it, prop it up)
6) Lots of photos of friends and family, display liberally!

7) Commando Hooks!  Love Commando hooks!
(Hang purses, backpack, hats, pictures, scarves...think outside the box.
8) Keep the bedding simple and take a warm throw, 
maybe down...
(that way you can change accessories and change the look).
9) An inexpensive swag light from Ikea adds light and ambience.
