My daughter has a real sense of style.  Unfortunately, her dorm room doesn't.  We want her to be comfortable but have obvious limitations on what we can change.  Any tips to decorate her dorm room and spruce up her space without adding to our already sky-high college costs?

When creating large canvas and fabric prints for wall mounting, select fire-retardant treated fabrics. In dorm rooms where melees are known to occur, best be protected by ensuring fire safety by preventing ignition if it comes in contact with a lamp or hot AC adapter.

Another safety consideration is proactive bed bug prevention. Use pillow and mattress covers at move-in.
