Instead of paint, you can use paint swatches for colour on your wall and use some of these colours as accents in your room.

Some Dorm will not permit that you paint your walls, other will allow it as long as you repaint the walls when your leave.

if you can paint one wall, choose a bold colour, a colourful colour that is.

”The importance of being a rug in your bedroom”

I find rugs are the creators of harmony, unity and warmth in a room, these are all very human qualities, hmm I suppose it is easier to talk this way  about rugs in our lives than men in our lives.
