As a home decor nut and budget-mindful college student, I am always looking for fun ways to spruce up my space without feeling guilty about spending a fortune! I've come to realize that part of the fun in decorating is finding a way to "cheat the system". I love gaining inspiration from high profile magazines and architectural blogs, and then working to create a similar look on a budget. Here are some of my favorite ways you can easily add some character to your space without taking out a second mortgage!
