I'm pretty sure if Tenia had seen my dorm room, back in the day, she wouldn't have asked me to participate. I wish a I had a picture to share (I'm sure you could use the laugh). It consisted of a hunter green and white striped comforter (K-Mart), matching pillows/towels/etc. in burgandy, and the focal point was a poster of Miss Piggy (yeah, I have no idea).
Being that I remember dorm rooms as dull, dark, and a little depressing, I went bright and happy with my design plan:
My inspiration for the space was this fun, floral rug from Company C, featured in the current House Beautiful. Even if you have to live in a dark little hole, surely this bright color scheme will make you feel a little cheerier.
