Home Sweet HOME
- The most popular questions that I have been asked recently are..
"How did you make your room at university feel more like yours?"
How did you get over your homesickness?"
With these questions in mind I thought that I would write about the three ways that I
concquered homesickness by making my university bedroom feel more homey!
I have had many requests on my Youtube channel to film a room tour
video and I am hoping to get that filmed within the next couple of weeks so you can see
goodgollymisshollie HQ for yourselves. :)
In the mean time...
I am a lover of home decoration and interiors, I really like to make things feel my own
therefore moving to a new room
with four white walls, a horrible, rough, scraggy carpet and a prison like feel was a decoration challenge for me.
Five months on...
I look around my new little space now and I love it.
And here is what I did...
- I pick up inspiration from absolutley everywhere, but I wanted to make my room feel like somewhere I would like to be.
I think we all know where that place is…so I brought little pieces of London to my room.
I wanted to be reminded of my favourite place Camden Town so I made my room feel
a little bit vintage-esc, a little bit ecclectic so to speak with my embellished kimono hung from my wardrobe, collected teacups dotted around and pictures of Camden Town.
I wanted to be reminded also why I am here at university so I decorated my pin board
with inspirative pieces themed around London, fashion and beauty, publishing and journalism.
My pin board became my 'dream board'.
Something to aim for, and a reminder as to why I am here in Liverpool.
- These include my favourite photographs in cute frames, my entire perfume collection, my favourite books, my favourite colours purple and red, my leopard print accessories and my Jewellery
I brought my favourite films my Sex and the City box set and my makeup.
I also collected things that were new to the new me, this remind me of the old me and the new me.
- Have your friends hanging out in your room, make them all a brew or a cocktail if it is past 6 ;)
-I found that inviting my friends into my room made it feel like a happy place
I like to have people in as I have a little TV so we can watch Sex and the City to our hearts content!
One thing is for sure, you can crank your heating up all day and all night without worrying about the bill! My room is constantly a little sauna and you can usually tell I am home if the Spice Girls are
blasting out and there's a furious clatter of fingers on a keyboard.
How did you make your room feel more homely?
