How to Decorate Your Student Flat

Posted in Student Accommodation, Student Life, London by Melissa Le Clerc on Feb 2nd, 2015

Been browsing for ideas to customise design your place? See our guide to adapting this season’s interior design trends to your Nido space.

[GREEN WITH ENVY]

Build your own garden.

The Garden Bridge from the Southbank to Temple will begin construction this year. Meaning we will no doubt begin to see greenery inspired design popping up in the coming year. Create your own garden within your room with a terrarium. These miniature ecosystems of plants are easily maintainable and self-contained. Create your own or visit florist Grace and Thorn in Hackney for some trendy vegetation inspiration.

[BOLD & BRIGHT]

Prints are back.

Much like the fashion trends this season, bold prints are also being used in the interior design world. 70’s style geometric patterns and prints on textiles are an easy way to add a splash of colour without the commitment of painting a wall. Make your space trendy and cosy by incorporating playful printed rugs around your bed or kitchen. Visit Anthropologie on Regent Street for some unique prints you won’t find anywhere else.

[COMPACT IS BACK]

Statement pieces & storage.

Across London old shipping containers, workshops and garages are being transformed into shopping centres, office space and apartments, meaning compact living is here to stay. Apply this concept to your room by making the best use of your space. Make full use of your under-bed storage and add a statement piece of furniture like a chair or bookshelves. This will make the space feel bigger by adding a focal point to the room. Get some inspiration from The Lollipop Shoppe.

[INDUSTRIAL ERA]

Rough and raw pieces

This trend may not be much of a surprise as industrial style design can be seen all over the city in restaurants, bars and hotels. The beauty of this trend is that pieces can be purchased brand new such as freestanding brass light fixtures or found at antique stores or markets. Visit Freecycle or Ebay for reclaimed furniture or signage to give your room that manufactured feel.
