Snuggle Up With Blanket & Throws
Duvet days are guaranteed with our comforting selection of throws and blankets. Instantly add warmth and texture to your boudoir with waffle knit throws, teddy blankets and soft velvet touches.
For dreamers who need a little extra help drifting off (we feel ya!), weighted blankets are the perfect solution and feel like a big warm hug (aww!).
Explore a myriad of designs in new-season colourways and styles to create an eye-catching and visually attractive space.
Create contrast against soft duvet covers with bright and bold throws, and add the final touch with cosy cushions. Scatter them across your bed or pop one on your desk chair to make studying slightly more appealing!
Space Saving Storage Hacks
One piece of décor we can’t checkout without is nifty storage solutions.
Neatly store away last year’s clothing outfits and books, and make space for fresh fits, footwear and study notes.
Shop our storage boxes and baskets for everything from underbed storage boxes to tall towers and storage caddies.
Breathe fresh life into your pad with naturalistic woven baskets, bamboo caddies and wooden storage containers. Pop stationery, cosmetics and toiletries in easy-to-reach storage baskets on desks or vanity units.
With your bits and bobs organised and in the right place (for now at least!), enjoy a tidy room and a tidy mind. You’ll feel sooo much better!
Create a tropical vibe by welcoming some greenery into your room with life-like artificial plants.
Faux plants are a fab alternative for those who aren’t naturally green-fingered. They require next to no maintenance and look fab all year round.
A quick clean will spruce them up, meaning you don’t need to worry about watering when you’re away during university breaks and holidays – happy days!
Whether you’re looking for the perfect pampas, sweet sunflowers or cute bunny tail grass, we’ve got a pick for you. Complete your charming set-up with a contemporary vase to home your foliage. Bum-shaped, floral and abstract designs – we’ve got them all.
Get Lighting Right
Match your vision by creating your perfect hangout with table lamps and floor lamps. Flick the switch on contemporary designs in rose gold, silver-tone and black – perfect for brightening up dull corners. For night-time reading and late-night study sessions, a table lamp makes a handy companion.
Transform your bedroom into a dreamy hideout by draping fairy lights and string lights across your room. Wrap them over bed frames and bookshelves or hang them from the ceiling – we love the glow!
Keep your trend-setting status by checking out our decorative lighting for box lights, neon signs and selfie ring lights to guarantee THE best lighting for all your snaps!
Wonderful Wall Décor
Add some personality to uni halls with iconic wall décor. Illuminate plain walls by hanging a wall tapestry above your bed space or stick posters of your fave artists and films as a nostalgic reminder of home.
Take a trip down memory lane by popping your best selfies in photo frames. Not only will they liven up blank walls, but they’re an excellent way to beat the blues when you’re missing home.
Neat hack from us: open up small rooms and make your hangout feel spacious by placing a mirror on the wall. Scroll through an array of elegant ornate designs and gold-tone pieces.
Whatever you’re vision, trust George to inspire you with tons of stylish room decorations across our edit. You choose the vibe, the colour palette and leave the rest to us!
