Hello, hello! Long time no speak here on Dinosaur Dances and to be honest a lot has changed in my life, but that can wait for another day because right now we’re here for the home decor. I am however back at University for my final year and once again have the pleasure of decorating a new bedroom. I’ve been quite lucky over the years with my uni bedrooms, the worst of it being brown carpets and floral wallpaper! However this year myself and my best friend Hannah hit housing gold with a blank canvas of white (okay cream) walls and wooden floorboards, so I’ve really been able to decorate it how I’d like. So let’s get into the tour!
The chair. I’ve wanted a velvet chair for the longest time but even the likes of Home Sense are way out of my student budget. So when I spotted this teal dream at a French market I just couldn’t resist. Big shoutout to my mum and step dad who drove it hundreds of miles home for me, best €25 I’ve ever spent. I’d also like to introduce you to Sid, my new plant baby, who I’ll try my best to keep alive.
I really wanted to inject some colour into the room, so spent a good few hours scrolling the Desenio website to find the perfect prints. I’m going for the casual ‘wall lean’ vibe but let’s be honest I just can’t put things up on rented walls! I bought this little ladder shelf back in London but it’s the perfect way to display bits and bobs, along with my ridiculous perfume collection.
New bed, new bedding. Okay so I could have stopped at the new M&S quilt cover but I may have gotten a little carried away and updated my cushions too… Let’s also not talk about my new MacBook as my bank account is still wincing at the thought.
This is the first time I’ve not had my bed squished into a corner, which meant I *needed* a second bedside light. This gorgeous glass dome lamp is new in from Ikea and I absolutely love it, the pink glass gives a lovely warm hue which makes even the coldest of uni rooms seem snuggly.
A desk is a student room essential, although mine will probably be used more for makeup than reading…
And there we have a little look into my new uni room, I really hope you like it!
It really is home sweet home.
