When Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt want to escape the paparazzi, they hunker down in their private estate in the south of France. As the birth of their twins approached, the Brangelina super couple hid out at their European mansion, Chateau Miraval, where it was rumored Angelina was confined to bed rest. While she awaited her delivery date, Angelina undoubtedly wiled away the hours in a luxurious bedroom, where no expense was spared in the decorating department. But even though higher education prices are soaring, college students can still realize some of their decorating fantasies using affordable metal beds or space saving daybeds.
According to ABC News, the 1.2 million high school students who entered college in the fall of 2007 were socked with a higher interest rate on their student loans. The nonprofit group Project on Student Debt estimated that "the average U.S. college student graduates from a four-year college with about $19,000 in loans, an increase of 50 percent compared to 10 years ago." That's a lot of debt for someone who hasn't even yet earned one year of full-time wages. Factor in the cost of back-to-school supplies, including dorm room furnishings -- which a National Retail Federation survey estimates was up nine percent in 2007 -- and going broke becomes an understatement.
With a mission of providing beautiful, quality, discount bedroom furniture to help individuals create their own special retreat, Home and Bedroom Furniture provides college students with many options they can use to create a stylish living space on a less-than-lavish budget.

Helping college students to create their own environment gives them a place to work, study and excel in," offers Home and Bedroom's spokesperson, Ben Weissman.
The company's line of discount bedroom furniture offers many ideas for creating just such an environment, such as decorative headboards and platform beds that are stylish, but don't require a box spring.
