Spring has come! Or let’s say: supposed to come any minute now… There are some good days and other days it feels like winter never ended. However, even if it is slowly, summer is definitely coming! And that means that it is time to start making our room summer-proof. Now, I don’t mean the serious things like air conditioning and clean sheets. I’m talking about the perfect time for redecorating your space – student style!

Plants & Picture Frames

The most simple way of decorating is buying some plants or picture frames. Plants are a great way of bringing some color and life into your room without too much effort. Plants don’t even have to cost effort, money or time. Are you not very great at sustaining plants like me? You can always decide upon a cactus, or when that is even too much for you, buy a fake one!

Even easier yet than having plants, another idea is to decorate your room with some picture frames. You can find some great (cheap) frames in stores like HEMA and use them to display your pictures of your siblings, friends, parents, family, your best friend and you, holiday pictures… more than enough options to choose from! It will immediately make your room feel less empty and whenever you look at it, you will be reminded of a great memory you shared with that person.

 

Pillows, pillows and more pillows!

Pillows are a great way to give your room a bit more style. There are hundreds of different pillows and pillowcases you can choose from. Just pick some that fit the rest of your furniture. You can go from sophisticated black to sparkly pink and all the happy yellow and warm red colors in between.

Trophies and Medals

Did you win some cool (or weird) competition when you were younger? Or maybe you have simply received some participatory medals for trying. Either way, trophies and medals are a fun, simple way of styling your room. There is nothing wrong with some pride, and when someone comes into your room you immediately have a fun story to tell. Because, aren’t the things with background stories so much more interesting than that fake plastic chicken figure you once bought for Easter and forgot to put away?

Move around some furniture

If you don’t want to add new stuff to your room but you like some change at the same time, it is a good option to move around some furniture. Play and puzzle with the different formations you can make in the space you have with the furniture you got. Rearranging the stuff you already have can be a major change for the ambience in your room. Everything will look different once you are done, even though they are essentially the same pieces. Perfect!
