It's back to school time again, and for those of you who are going off to college for the first time, that means decorating your first college dorm room (or apartment). Creating a stylish space on a budget can be a real challenge, and that's where Apartment Therapy's Dorm Style comes in. We've created a series of inspiration boards to show how you can put together budget buys (and flea market finds and DIYs) to create serious style on a small budget.

First up: a modern bedroom, inspired by Scandinavian interiors, punched up with geometric shapes and softened with pastel shades.
