So I was lucky enough to be sent over a few home bits from Urban Outfitters
to show you guys how I freshen up my uni room (it's my full time room but pu-tay-to/po-tah-to). I'm also in the process of moving house, so as always when you move, I'm clearing out and buying new bits to fill the newly empty spaces.
LETTER BASKET, NOTEBOOKS, ELEPHANT MUG
CREATE A WORKSPACE
This is super important to me as so much of my course requires me to work from home, so if I'm not sewing at my desk, I'm spending hours and hours on In Design. Create a clear, clutter free zone and make it somewhere you want to spend time.
I've spruced my desk up with some personal photos, fresh flowers and organised my life with this super cute rose gold letter basket. There's nothing I hate more than odd bits of paper flying all over the place, and this is an easy solution to keep all your bills, notebooks etc together!
ROMEO CUSHION, PHOTO MOBILE, CLIP LIGHTS
Sounds as simple as it is, but I tend to stick to an all white scheme with walls and bedding/curtains etc then add to the room with changeable items such as pillows and throws. I love layering two or three different toned and textured throws on my white cotton sheets and throwing a few scattered pillows. UO do the coolest rugs too, which are an easy way to add colour and fill a space.
I've popped this cool marble print cushion on my desk chair, and added this rose gold photo mobile on my side of the bed to make me feel 'at home' as well as these photo fairy lights filled with all my Polaroids.
My room is part bedroom, part office, part greenhouse much to James' dismay. I literally have a plant on every available surface. They freshen up dark and dingy spaces and make the room feel cleaner and more 'breathable' instantly. I love cacti for when I can't be bothered to look after them, and this terrarium is perfect for planting some mini succulents in. Until I move in a couple of weeks I've just popped in a mini cacti but I'm on the hunt for something more permanent!
So adapt 'pretty' to your own interpretation, but I'm talking make necessities look good. I've picked up this rose gold (can you tell I love rose gold?) door hook set, which is a perfectly fashionable way to store the millions of coats and bits of jewellery I have. N.B it's never this neat usually.
This is just a hint of the more organised part my room, but once we're settled I'm definitely going to do a full interior post as well as potentially a few DIY's if I follow through with them!
