Living in a small room doesn't mean you can't make it modern and stylish. Of course, dorm room decorations aren't cheap, especially keeping in mind the other important things you have to purchase as well. But your bedroom should be the place that makes you happy! What is the better way to achieve it than trying to do some interesting decor things by yourself? Here are a couple of ideas for you:
