Uni | Bedroom Tour

As a-level results day is creeping up I thought I would kick off a little uni series on my blog. Last summer I remember being so excited, I wanted to buy homey things immediately after I left college. I patiently waited for results day but it still didn't stop me from planning.

I've decided to give you a peek inside my first year accommodation at university. It can be a very daunting experience moving away from home but there are a few ways to still make your halls accommodation feel homely. With my room I was lucky enough to have a 3/4 sized bed, desk, storage space, an ensuite and plenty of space for movement.

I chose to reflect my creative style in decorating my bedroom, allowing for plenty of colour and quirky little touches such as cute business cards and postcards! By my bed I kept a few photographs of friends and family, I'd say this is something that a lot of students like to do to remind them of old and new memories. Cover your pinboards with anything and everything!


Here I kept my desk in two halves, a work half and a make up/beauty half. I'd like to say that my desk always looked like this but unfortunately I would be lying.

My shelves I kept cluttered free and only stored the pieces I know I'd reach for on a daily basis such as perfumes or books. I also kept a few pieces from my birthday celebration with the flat girls, the tiara and the balloon weight really fitted in with my 'theme' but also reminded me of a fun night. 

Although I have many candles in my room, due to fire regulations I wasn't allowed to light them. The key to good lighting is investing in plenty of fairy lights. As there are plug limitations, battery operated lights are the best. Of an evening I would switch all of my fairy lights on to create a tranquil atmosphere (so blogger!). 

I hope this post helped any freshers out there or given anybody some decor ideas :)

Do let me know if there are any university based posts you'd be interested in reading and I'll get them ready for you!
