We know a lot of you are toughing it in out in dorm room-living situations. From living with roommates to pulling all-nighters, here are a few of my favorite dorm room decor items that'll not only make you happy to head back to get back to all that school entails, but might even help you out with privacy issues, sleeping schedules, and note-taking…

There are a lot of posts on Offbeat Home about cohabiting in an apartment or house; however, I don't think I've seen anything covering living and sleeping in the same room as a roommate you didn't know until a week prior to moving in!

I picked out some artsy odds and ends, fun seating, great rugs, privacy ideas, and ways to organize that look pretty while they work. Let's shop!
It was always one of my boyfriend's dreams to be an RA. He signed up this year and the first years move in this weekend, so we got to decorating.

Okay, living in dormitories can get boring — even frustrating. I'm thinking back on those days and pulling out the cozy ways my roommate and I made our dorm a fun place to relax, even when schedules got tough: after she pulled another all-night at the hotel front desk or when I got done with my soul-crushing, puppy-killing job.
