The Freshman 15: The do's and don'ts of college life
Woah, you have a Bob Marley poster right next to a Fight Club
poster right next to a Radiohead poster? Oh my God! You're so original — not. We understand that decorating your high school bedroom consisted of taping magazine clippings on the baby blue or pink walls your mom picked out 18 years ago, but it's time to grow up. Boys: No black lights, Salvador Dalí posters or those ubiquitous Indian tapestries. Girls: No watermelon color schemes, plastic chandeliers (you're in a dorm, for God's sake) or rugs over carpet — that gives people the creeps. IKEA and Target are mainstays on the college prep circuit, but Atlanta has great thrifting, too. Check out the affordable kitsch at Highland Row Antiques
(628 N. Highland Ave.) or the discounted furniture at Last Chance
(2525 N. Decatur Road).
