Since moving away from home I've learnt how important it is to have a nice room. Not only is it your space, but it makes studying so much easier, and you never feel away from home.
The first thing I always think about is bedding. The walls are usually plain white, so very bland and no colour. My advise is always go for something bright and patterned. Not only does it brighten up the room but it always looks fresh and inviting.

Look for posters of your favourite bands, or brands. I was lucky enough to pick up a Christian Louboutin poster at the design museum earlier this year. Framed prints also look great, I always use pintrest as inspiration, even framing and printing my favourite pins from there.

There is plenty more you can do to make your room homely. Cushions and throws are a favourite of mine, as well as desk pieces such as magazine holders and files. It's all about having fun. Use Pintrest for ideas and get stuck in. I would love to hear what you've done to make your perfect uni room.
