The idea of student accommodation usually conjures up images of grimy, grey hovels like that inhabited by characters in The Young Ones.
But with a little elbow grease and some well chosen furnishings, student digs can be a creative and inspiring home away from home.
Playful, bright and quirky homeware allows you to put your stamp on your new place without painting or papering walls. Better still, punchy little accents can be packed up and transported in a flash, making the transition from halls of residence to house super convenient.
So forget magnolia monotony, give your student digs an injection of A+ style.
TOP TIP: Display lots of photos of your family and friends – it’ll stop you feeling too homesick
