Just add a poster or some art work over the bed and it will look complete.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've been wanting to get this picture I took in Paris blown up.

Wow, that would be a nice poster and you have selected some great pillows and bedding.

Cute room! I agree, that photo would make a great poster. Looks like it's pretty easy to do. I just googled and saw you can have your image printed as a poster at wallgreens. http://photo.walgreens.com/walgreens/pdpposters/type=poster/?tab=photo_posters_Single I bet there are lots of other options if that isn't nearby.

Costco does a good job of getting poster size photos printed at a good price. Was this from a DSLR? It will make a difference in the print.

The photo was from my iPhone because by that time in our trip I was too lazy to carry around my actual camera but if it turns out fuzzy I'll just pass it off as my way of making it look like an impressionist piece. Thanks for the comment on my bed its a work in progress since it has two fans on it daily ( no central air). Instead of central air though my room which use to be part of a Hotel has original crown moldings and an old window which they turned into a mirror. Also all the rooms are different so it's a little more unique than any of the new dorms. I post a picture of the poster once I make a trip to Cvs. Not my ideal pick of where to go but it's only a couple blocks away.

Try to use a little more of your aqua-blue accent color. I noticed how the blue notebook pops on the desk. Look for a colored blotter and switch out or add aqua trim to your desk storage with decoupage or just elmer's glue.

It may work well on your wall to add a little more decor withouth being permanent. If your near a Home Goods you may find them their also. I have spotted them at mine from time to time.

I would consider a closed Armoire for your little study desk...and art.

I'm impressed- I believe this is the first dorm room I've ever seen with crown molding.

Thank you everyone, I really appreciate all the comments. I love interior design and creating my own creative space was a necessity to escape my stressful science major. Holland is truly a magical dorm to live in we share a common driveway/quad with four other dorm buildings, the school's book store, a bakery and we are sandwiched between two major avenues that have state of the art hospitals, art and history museums, a park, amazing food, beautiful architecture and the Cathedral of Learning.

Jordan, your dorm room is turning out nicely. The moldings and the window turned into a mirror are stunning! Enjoy. :)
