Another cheeky interiors post today! Honestly, if I hadn’t decided to pursue my interest in fashion as a career, I would probably be heading down the interior design route. At some point next year – how strange does that sound?! – I’ll pop a home bedroom tour in video form, as I keep getting requests for one (: Also because I have no idea what to film next and I feel that I’ve semi-committed myself to making more videos once in a while!
My room is currently an utter tip, as it always is when I come home because I only ever half unpack! It just saves me half of the job when it comes to packing up to leave again aha. Although I only had my room redecorated last Winter, my Mum is currently in talks to change my room around again, which I can only assume is due to boredom from not having my fabulous self around! *ahem* 😉 My room was decorated in a shabby chic theme, but keeping it all quite classic and not too cutesy, as I’m expecting to be living at home for a bit when I’m graduated and all that fun stuff.
RIGHT! Extravagently long intro over. These are some of my picks to add into my room to make it a little more classic and Blair Waldorf-esque! Yup, my mumabear also finds it slightly unnerving that my room is taking inspiration from a fictional character! As you can see, I’m going for neutral colours with a few embellisments, and not forgetting me trusty Yankee Candle.
In other exciting news (!!!), after a lot of thought and consideration, I’m moving out of my current flat with the girls, and into a ‘new’ house in July! Which means you won’t have to endure my endless complaints of lack of money. Basically, to cut a long story short, the Student Loans Company, generous and helpful as they are, are reducing my maintenance loan again next year, as it is income-based, and the amount I get will leave me with just under £5 to live off each week – nice(!) I’m sad that I won’t be living with the girls, but excited for another new/big change! Which means… another room to decorate! Here are some picks for my Uni room (planning ahead but hey, I’m bored and snowed in!):
I’m not sure why all of these picks revolve around adorning the bed. I spend approximately 60% of my time in bed, 30% doing work (outside of the under the duvet!) and the rest eating and socialising. I’m absolutely 19 going on 90! My Mum is also buying me a set of star fairy lights to string around my bed, which are currently half price in Sainsbury’s. You’ve got to love them marking products cheaply “just because” the festive period is already almost gone, when my own purpose for such items are well suited all year round 😉
PS. An uber-quick thank you to Irene for the wall decal inspiration! (:
