Back to school season is officially in full swing. Before you know it, you’ll be moving out of your parents’ nest and into your dorm room, the blank (like, completely blank), cinder-blocked canvas you’ll be calling home for the next nine months.
When it comes to decorating your space, you pretty much have all the creative freedom you need—despite, you know, some obvious limitations, like your dorm’s rules about decorating—to express yourself and really make it your own. (Well, at least, your tiny section of it.)
