There comes that point in life when you need to fly the nest and leave all the home comforts behind. During my first year of University I stayed living at home with my family and for 19 years of my life I was surrounded by my family 24/7. However earlier this year I decided it was time to start to start a new chapter in my life. We started looking around for a nice little abode which offered a lot of potential for creativity and personality and to be honest I think we found it.
Although I didn’t really move far as I am still living in the Manchester area, being away from my family is a very strange thing for me. For 19 years of my life I have been surrounded by my parents and siblings and to be honest the quietness is strange (not that i’m missing the constant bickering and random out burst of song from my brothers) but I suppose its something I’ll get used too over time.
Now can we just take a minuet to appreciate everything parents do for us! All this having to fend for yourself malarky is really some form of sick joke but I mean it’ll get easier eventually, I hope!
One thing I was really excited for was to decorate my room, being limited to what I could change as it is a student rental property we can’t actually do any drastic changes like paint the walls or hang furniture but this didn’t stop me wanting to make the room my own. We were really lucky that the room came furnished and already had a bed a wardrobe and a desk all black, the walls are white but there is a chimney breast with a somewhat controversial with a red and cream stripped pattern running along. I didn’t let this stop me from putting the colours I wished into my room as I plan to pin up a tapestry to hide this. majority of the items I bought were from either Primark and Ikea as they both have amazing and affordable home decor!.
Although not quite to the finished standard I want my room to be too feel comforting and homely I’m happy with how it is at the moment!
