8 ways to make your dorm room (or any tiny space) chic 

Have your (tiny) space and decorate it too

The average amount of living space in a college dorm room is 228 square feet — or 198 square feet, once you subtract the space occupied by a desk and extra-long twin bed. But a small space does not mandate a style deficit, says Casi Francis, senior interior designer at Eclectic Home.

  "Painting the walls is usually not allowed," Francis says, "but layering artwork and photography in different sized frames and a mix of colors that don't necessarily match — it's more intriguing and more 'you."

  Mismatching and layering accessories is key to a homey yet classy look. Pieces that do double duty keep a diminutive domain orderly. Francis makes a few recommendations for back-to-school cool.
