College Room Homewares 2015

My College Room Homewares post of 2014 was my most viewed post of the entire year – so, now that I have moved into a new room for the new year in a new college, I’ve redecorated! Since last time I showed you around my room, I’ve acquired some beautiful new gifts, in addition to bringing back old decorations that I featured last year. Without further ado, here is how I decorated my new, larger college room:

***DISCLAIMER: Fish are pets, not just for decoration. I also highly recommend against keeping fish in bowls – I only do so because it is my only option when living on college. Bowls are very difficult to keep fish in properly and to do so I clean my tank frequently, maintain a healthy bowl temperature for Bettas and make sure my bowl pH is right. Proper tanks are better for your Betta.

Most college rooms can be dark and boring places when you first move in, right? Mine felt like a blank, grey-walled sauna when I first moved in, but it didn’t take me long to spruce up my own little place with my own personal touch.Bonsai_Tree Book_Shelf LOVECalendarMetal_RoseWillow_TreeMoney_BoxDreamcatcherLanterns TeddyPaper_Roses Photo_Frame Photo_Wall Succulentsfish
