Fairylights

I've now lived in my current flat for over two months. It's a furnished flat, and a lot of the furniture is really rather ugly, but I've done my best to make my room homely anyway. There are still a few bits and bobs that I'd like to get for my room, but it does feel more like home than my room in student accommodation ever did. So, I thought it would be fun to share some of the nicer parts that I'm quite chuffed about. I can't be the only one who is nosy and likes seeing what people's homes look like, right?

My room is the biggest of the two rooms, and is a sort of combined bedroom and living room, as it has a sofa and a coffee table. Upon entering the room, the sofa and the coffee table are to the right, behind the door and to the left is my wardrobe, on which I've put up photos of my friends and family, and a sort of combined chest of drawers/vanity table which holds my make-up, jewellery and other stuff.

The best part of the room is the bed though, which is what you see straight ahead when you enter. It's placed right by the large windows, which is a beautiful but simultaneously terrible spot since it gets very, very cold. It's okay once you're in bed snuggled up under the duvet and blanket with a hot water bottle though. I've also got three companions - Helga the owl, Henry the haggis and Earl Grey the donkey (who's been my dear friend since I was only a few years old). I firmly believe that you're never too old for stuffed animals.

On the wall next to the windows is my Ravenclaw print which I got from Etsy. To the right of the bed are a few built-in cabinets and built-in shelves with glass doors. The cabinets hold random stuff that I want out of sight, while the shelves hold my books. On the wee lower shelf, I've got my Harry Potter books and DVDs, a couple of empty chocolate frogs, and (if you look closely in front of the books), my wand. Yup, it's no secret I love Harry Potter.

On the same wall, to the right of the books, is an old boarded up fireplace. On the upper shelf I've put my ivy, my beloved Marauder's Map, my Rifle Paper Co calendar, my chocolate advent calendar and an Emma-book from wayfair.co.uk that is actually a storage box. The little shelf below is home to my cacti, my wee pumpkins (which will probably soon be replaced by something more Christmas-y), an owl that my friend kindly crocheted for me, and another empty chocolate frog box! Below is my desk, which is usually more cluttered than in this photo. Turning right, on the wall opposite the bed, is the sofa and the coffee table. It's the ugliest sofa in the world, so I'll spare your eyes. I shouldn't complain though, as at least we've got a sofa! 

And that's that :) Hope you enjoyed this little tour of my room. How have you decorated your room/your flat?

Love, Mimmi
