dorm room decor

dorm room decor

hey everyone i'm on my way to college this fall, so my room is being left behind, only for me to go to a tiny 11x15 room, which i am sharing with my friend from high school. all the furniture is a horrible wood grain, there's one big window and the closets are holes in the walls (no doors, must make curtains for them!) I was just wondering if anyone had any cool tips for dorm room decorating, ways to save space, etc. we know that the room is basically going to be red (her), blue (me), and purple, black, and silver (us) we have the space saving with a tv that's a vcr/dvd/alarmclock/cdplayer/radio all in one (rock it!) and a fridge, etc. I just really want to make it feel like home. (i wanna heart my *dorm* room as well!) I'm so used to my bright colors and open spaces and things, i'm fearing the white cinderblock walls and things. we're lucky that we're both into broadway/musicals/theatre type stuff, as well as a good color scheme. she's a dance/sociology major and i'm a technical theatre/psychology major. any help is appriciated!
