If you are getting ready to send someone off to college for the first time, or are going yourself, the preparations can be intimidating, not to mention the emotions. There are so many things to consider: supplies for your room, electronics, clothes, books; you name it. You want to have what is needed, as well as what looks nice. After all, your dorm room is going to be your home-away-from-home for quite a while, and you want it to be attractive as well as comfortable. It's easy to overcompensate, and bring too much stuff. But dorm rooms just aren't that big, so you have to be careful about what you end up bringing. It might be best to start with the basics. Dorm rooms are essentially for sleeping and studying in. (Well, OK, socializing is important too.)
Options for comforter sets abound for all types of taste

Decorating a home in French country decor is as popular today as it was hundreds of years ago in rural France. Today more and more people are redecorating or redesigning their homes to include some aspect of country French design.
Another area that is generally skipped is the space above your kitchen cupboards. Try adding some traditional French kitchen ware and other ceramic or terracotta jars or urns. And a French country kitchen would not be complete without some assortment of copper pots and utensils.

Keep in mind is that the fireplace mantle must go well with other architectural elements in the room. Installing a small and relatively plain mantle, when the room includes elements like chair railing or ornate baseboards, might not be a good idea. At the same time, a mantle featuring carved bunches of cherries would look out of place in a contemporary room. Smart thing to do is to go for surrounds that will enhance what you have going on, without causing the room to seem out of balance.How to Choose a Good Wood Fireplace Surround
Technically, a fireplace surround is an architectural element which surrounds a fireplace, providing aesthetic and safety benefits. A fireplace with a fireplace surround can add a bit of romance to any room.

So once you've chosen a color you like, what do you do with it? Try painting the front door. The front door can serve as a focal point or it can be used to telegraph your decorating color scheme for the rest of the porch. So your first step is to go out on your porch or yard and determine a great color for your front door. Depending on the overall statement you want, that is, bold, trendy, subtle, or somewhere in between, choose a color that will complement that look. Then you might choose another complementary or contrasting color to go with that.

Browsing through various sites with home decorating ideas, reading through magazines for kitchen remodel ideas, and watching decorating shows for galley kitchen ideas will give you even more to think about when deciding to plan your own kitchen design.
To avoid having to deal with too much traffic with not enough room, try making sure you can have four to six feet of aisle space. If you place the sink and refrigerator on one wall, and then the range opposite it on the other side, this will allow the room to be evenly spaced out and not look over crowded. You could even add an island or peninsula off the end of one counter which will aid in allowing a place for quick eat in meals.

The fireplace mantel, if it's wide enough, would be the perfect place to put some plants or fresh flowers. These fresh elements can really bring life to a room, not to mention the added benefits of adding live plants in your living room. Make sure you pick plants that can thrive well inside or with little sunlight, especially if your fireplace doesn't get enough sunlight. This idea is best if you hardly use your fireplace, as the heat may wilt or kill your plants. If you use it seasonally, make sure you transfer your plants before you start lighting your fires.
