Cinder-block Chic

The obligatory strings of white Christmas lights are just the tip of the iceberg (and may well be verboten in dorms anyway). Here are a few items to take the edge off the cinder-block look.

$46: Birdcages vinyl wall decal, black (or choose among Bruce Lee, the Blues Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, and flying musical notes -- the site has an extensive selection) -- thegoodlifeoncampus.com

$25: A to Z print, a graphical design with your child's initial, 18 X 24 -- dormify.com

$15: Set of 6 battery-powered candles ($10), with batteries ($5) -- amazon.com

$15: French memo pad to tack photos and notes on -- bedbathandbeyond.com

$65: Shag area rug -- target.com

$30: Room Essentials Dish Chair Popcorn -- target.com

The tally: $2,411.50
