How to give your room a homey but stylish touch

Student halls decoration tips.


From my personal experience I know that moving into student halls can be scary, especially when it’s your first time away from home.  Having lived in a studio flat previously I know that there’s nothing worse than being in an unfamiliar space, adding a little personalisation to your room showcases your individuality making your room more yours.

Here are 4 tips on how I gave my room a homey but stylish feel.

Tip One: Photos.

Being away from home means that you don’t see your friends and family as much as you’re used to, having photos of your loved ones around is not only sentimental but it gives you a comforting feeling when you need it. I chose a combination of different colour of frames for my photos- this was to have the frames match different parts of my room.


Tip Two: Cushions.

There’s nothing better than coming home to a comfortable bed. Adding piles of cushions on your bed not only makes your bed more comfortable but it also adds a homey touch to your room.

Side Note: I chose the pink cushions as they were nice and bright goes with the frame in the picture above, this way I was following a colour scheme. Having a colour scheme to your room makes it more coherent, it ties everything together and makes the room more aesthetic.

Tip Three: Prints.

Adding prints to your wall is the ultimate touch, not only does this make your room look more alive, it takes away the neutral/ bland walls and gives your room less halls more home vibe.

Side Note: Using press on strips such as Command ensures that you don’t put a hole in your wall when putting your prints up. I got these prints from Depop by Girlsvisual. Other websites such as Desenio and Etsy also offer a variety of different prints.

Tip Four: Homely Workspace.


A nice work space helps you to stay organised whether you’re just studying or browsing. Having something to keep this work space from getting messy makes all the difference. I used this rose gold basket to keep my desk from getting crowed with clutter, putting things from chargers and pins to letters keeps my desk organised and neat.
