As students across the country settle into freshers’ week, many will be challenged with kitting out their home alone for the first time. TK Maxx’s Chief Interior Stylist, Suzie Attaway, explains here how you needn’t splurge your first loan instalment on stylishly kitting out your bedroom and kitchen. Here are her top tips to decorate new student digs: A trunk for your treasures Pack a trunk full of personal items from home - photos of family and friends, a couple of mugs, jewellery in jars and other small items that will add personality to your room. Invest in good bedding Your bed will double as your sofa, so invest in good quality bedding. Stick to colours that are in a neutral or plain block colour and accessorise with patterned, colourful cushions and throws to brighten it up. Posterize your walls Framed poster or prints can instantly personalise a bland space and covers up nasty marks on your walls. For a more personal touch, you can also create a collage of photos, postcards, and other paraphernalia on a pin board. Throw down a rug Rugs are the perfect cure for unsightly carpet stains or bare floorboards. A shaggy or faux fur rug will also add instant warmth and provide the room with a more homely feel.
