I live in a college dorm and my *new* roommate recently changed our room around.  (She kept complaining)  We had our beds bunked and they are now down and our room is tiny!!

When the beds were bunked I just had the pictures and the corkboard I made on the wall.  The other bed was just above the pictures (can you picture this?) and the calendar and clock was not there.  Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to make this look nice again.  I want to keep my pictures, but they can be on the wall in a different way.  Anything thing else would be nice too.  Thanks!

I'm not sure what your style is .. but maybe you could make it more girly by adding nettting or something (or funky fabric for a less-girly look) draped along the top of the wall and coming down on either side of your bed (if that makes sense?). Then In the middle, you could hang a really cool BIG blown up photo or poster using that Command adhesive by 3-M. It'd be sort of the focal point, and on either side of that, you could hang smaller photos or posters or something.

On the right corner of this picture, maybe you could buy one of those adjustable shower shelving systems that you put in the corner of your shower. And then you could put candles and other stuff on them. Or at Ikea, they sell these http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?topcategoryId=15567&catalogId=10103&storeId=12&productId=20686&langId=-1&parentCats=15567*15661*16260 ... however I'm not sure if you can hang things from the ceiling.

I hope these ideas help  Cheesy

Maybe it's a bit on the expensive side... but my first thought was to get yourself a loft bed, and then underneath, put a futon or some other seating. You'd already have the bottom part all nicely decorated for lounging.  You could put curtains around the top of the loft bed too to give yourself privacy, or make it easier to sleep if she is up late.

 I can't tell from this photo if you actually have a window in your room, but a fake window with a view of a tropical island, or snow, or whatever your particular locational jones is might look cool.  Remember, Rasterbator is your friend.

it doesn't have to hang from ceiling:) i have 2 of those from ikea, one hangs from heating pipe and other.. i have a "cupboard" for my electricity counter that is very high and has empty space under it, so i have screwed a litle hook in the door of that cupboard and now it hangs from there now:)) and at my bf's place we have bought a big hook for luster, and screwed it horizontally into wall, so top of the basket was far enough from wall. we have payed that hook about 0.50, and bought a basket in ikea for 1.00 (it is smaller than that one from your link:)

this is the one that hangs from cupboard:)
