Dorm rooms may conjure up an image of an overcrowded pigsty where workspace and living space collide for some, but for three Interior design students from the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University the image is a bit more stylish.

Andrea Sherburn, Elizabeth Weller and Elizabeth Wertenberger were chosen from a field of 33 designers to showcase their own spins on the classic collegiate quarters, reports the Grand Rapids press.

"People tend to think that interior design is decorating a space," says Olivia Snyder, Associate professor of interior design at Kendall. "The success of the room doesn''t have much to do with the flowery fabric or red paint and rock star posters on the wall."

What is the root of success when discussing interior design? Well the designers and the grand Rapids press have outlined three rules to help:

Rule #1: Figure out what you need from the space.
Rule #2: Determine which areas are public and which are private – then organize for the sake of function.
Rule #3: Create the mood.

The U.S. census predicts that there will be 18.4 million enrolled college students by year end 2009. With these interior design tips, they just might live more functionally and fashionably than ever.
