Ideas for Decorating a Classroom?

Good Questions

Q: I know this can vary a lot by the subject, I was wondering if you had any good classroom decoration ideas. My specific situation: I can't afford to spend much money at all (spare change is usually devoted to books!), but, as an English teacher, I'd also like to at least put in a few touches that could make my space more homey and inspirational than my current situation (hard seats, mostly blank walls except current unit posters, student work stapled to a bulletin board, and fluorescent lighting). I'm sure elementary and other subjects (science, social studies, math) could be interesting design challenges as well! I know elementary teachers in particular spend a lot of time thinking about the physical space in their room! Thanks!
