College Dorm Room Inspiration

Your high school graduate is off to college, and for the next year they will most likely be calling a dorm room home.  Most dorms look just like the photo above, how depressing! For many freshman, this will be the first time that they have ever lived somewhere other than with their parents.  It can be hard to go from the comfort of your childhood home to a tiny room with a small twin bed.  Here are some great websites and design ideas that will help make that foreign space feel like your new home away from home.
