However, this year is a bit different, because I’ve totally left my daughter to decide on her own decor. My role is more of the helper.
She’s now in her second year, and sharing a house with 5 other lovely girls. Here’s the “Before” image of her new bedroom. It’s actually a good size, with a double bed, en-suite shower and lots of natural lighting streaming through.
Last year I helped her create a gallery wall with my print collection . This year, she’s decided to get her own wall decor. She opted for posters. So, here’s my daughter’s student accommodation room reveal, as styled by her and put up by her mother, aka me! Posters remind me of those days in boarding school, where I’m putting up prints with Blu tack.
Blu tack never worked well, and I’ve had many a night of posters falling down on me. However, all is changed now since I’ve discovered poster strips by Command brand. They are so easy to put on, sticks really well and there’s no mess or damage to walls on removal compared to the horrible staining you see with wall tack.
This all makes poster strips ideal for rented or student accommodation. Here’s a sneak peek of my daughter putting up her posters. All done! Her choice of posters are so lovely aren’t they? To further personalise her bedroom, my daughter decided to put up some of the decor accessories that she bought. This boho style evil eye rattan mirror at her dressing table is from H&M home, and we have used a Command brand adhesive hook that is able to handle its weight.
The hook is simple to remove. Just slide the plastic hook off upwards, then pull the strip below vertically down for a clean ‘do no damage’ to wall finish. Since we are now heading into Autumn, creating a cosy feel to the bedroom was an essential.
We decided to hang fairy lights along the top of her walls using both Command brand mini hooks and decorating clips. Finally, to ensure a tidy look to her bedroom, we placed a Command brand metal medium designer hook on her door to hold up her coat. So, there you go, my daughter’s university student bedroom. What do you think?
I’m so sad that she’s away from home again, but I’m comforted by how her bedroom feels like home from home.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this post and that it has given you some decor ideas. The Command brand products are great for rentals and student rooms. It’s great to have one less worry about losing their student damage deposit.
Have a lovely day all.
