It might seem like there's not a lot you can do design-wise within the small confines of a college dorm room with terrible overhead lighting. But these students have all managed revamp their cookie-cutter spaces to look like something straight out of an HGTV show. Check out these design ideas from Southern dorm rooms that have us feeling jealous we're not in college anymore.

Texas Transformation

These Texas State University students were able to completely transform their dorm room for less than $500. The pair made the space their own with cozy bedding and faux-brick removable wallpaper. It looks like something that belongs in a chic New York City loft rather than a TSU dorm! See more of this dorm room.

Mississippi Stars

Mississippi State is seeing stars—at least when it comes to this impeccably organized dorm room. Accents of gold can be seen on the headboards, matching initialed pillows, and bed skirts. The roommates share a gray nightstand with extra storage as well as a glamorous hang-out space in the middle.

Roll Tide!

By lining their beds up against one wall, these two University of Alabama students gave the room more open space and the atmosphere of a non-stop slumber party. Clean, white bedding and a tall dresser bring out the pop of teal in the painting and vases. Simple, white elements, like cute containers and an elephant figurine, tie the room together.

This sophisticated Ole Miss dorm room makeover is seriously impressive. Matching bedding and headboard keep the room looking symmetrical while an antique dresser adds some vintage flair to the space. Llama and ostrich paintings above the beds put the pair's sense of humor on display. See more of this dorm room.

Light As A Feather

This dorm room has plenty of bohemian flair, including feather art and a map pillow that matches the plum bedding. The desk is filled with clear organizational pieces and a simple fabric cover hides an ugly wooden chair. Twinkling lights and curtains help cover up an otherwise bland wall, giving the space extra charm.

Monogrammed Everything

Monograms are front and center in this Goldey-Beacom College dorm room. A fluffy blanket, rug, and chair topper give this student's side of the room a cozy fee, while a glittery poster brings a bit of Southern glam to an otherwise neutral desk space.

Room to Hang

This very detailed dorm room features completely coordinated bedding, lamps, and paintings. But the best part is definitely the comfy lounge area at the center, with plenty of plush seating options. It basically looks like a fancy Southern hotel!

All Black Everything

A splash of color isn't necessary for this University of Miami dorm room. Photos of friends take over the wall and a monogram over the headboard adds an adorable personal touch. Those cinderblock walls completely vanish with removable wallpaper that makes the space feel one-of-a-kind.
