While we are in the midst of decorating (and furnishing) our first home and probably will be until we move on to our next home haha, it's funny to think back to when I decorated my apartment room in college. This was my first space to really decorate and make all my own starting completely from scratch. So I'll take you on a little journey of my Clemson college apartment where I lived my junior and senior year. It was a 4 bedroom/2 bath slightly shabby place but dirt cheap and close to campus. Our floorplan was just like this only mirrored (the entrance to ours was from the left, not right, etc.)
Thankfully we did not have to provide the room furniture although it was plain white against stark white walls... a tad boring. Keep in mind the bedrooms were small... 11x9 but that includes a built in desk area next to each closet.
My color scheme and decorating theme was to go with bright colors to liven it up and the main colors were blue and yellow from the bedding I picked out. I wanted my room to be a cheerful and happy room to be in.
Here is the view after walking through the door to my room. One of my favorite paintings is Starry Nights so I have that poster plus that B&W adorable poster of the two kids kissing. On the very left is a small print of the Clemson stadium with an orange and yellow polka dot ribbon underneath holding different gameday and stadium pics that I took - I added to the ribbon later.

You could see the dresser on the wall opposite the bed/window in the last pic but here is a close up. There is another ribbon with pictures on it - this one has my apt roomies. You can't see it but the door is to the right of the dresser. We weren't really supposed to nail too much into the wall but I did put up that little white shelf. I love the pop of orange pom poms haha!
