Affordable christmas room inspo

Hi Guys,

With Christmas coming up and budgets small due to spending your money on gifts for friends and family I decided to help out with how to decorate your room on an affordable budget.

I love luxury which isn’t good for my student budget but I’ve managed to find luxury whilst still sticking to an affordable and low budget. I shop the sales, find the bargains and splurge where needed.

– I will link everything if possible! If not I will link similar 🙂

My Front Door

I have lots of friends and family in Australia so this year’s stocking is Aussie themed and full of gold coins! We don’t normally do stockings in our family and I am luckily away in the warm Caribean this year so I will be enjoying my stocking early this year!

My Bathroom Door

This is my equivalent of a wreath at University. Due to not having a front door to hang a  wreath on I opted for a gold bell heart to hang on my bathroom door. This was from Wilkinsons at a bargain price of £4!

My Desk + Wardrobe

Tree quote, Fairy Lights, snowballs, Lanterns, Gold tree – GIFT

I love fairy lights at all times of the year and if you ask any of my friends I have far too many in my room. I personally believe that you can never have enough fairy lights and lanterns to enjoy the perfect cosy space.

I did a little DIY with my fairy lights by wrapping some gold star coil along the fairy lights and popping in some snowball decorations too.

When it came to my notice board I try to keep it as an inspiring, bright and positive space.

To make it more festive I simply hung some snowflake decorations in the corners and pinned my beautifully designed Christmas cards up. The cards act as free festive prints – great! I always have fairy lights around this noticeboard!

On my desk, I have a very mini Christmas tree which my mind kindly got me from the White Company. I also have a mini jar filled with some Terry’s chocolate orange slices. As you can see the jar isn’t full… I have been snacking on them whilst I work.

Typing about the Terry’s slices made me just grab a few… Dangerously tempting!

Bedside table and Bed

All of the above are either DIY’s, Gifts or no longer sold so I’ve linked similar. 

When it comes to my bed area I like to keep it neat, tidy and minimalist. On my bedside table, I have a little DIY that I did, a festive candle from Homesense (which smells of a mix between a Christmas tree and candy canes) and finally a little polar bear decoration with my name on.

Above my bed, I have a dream catcher which I strongly believe in and another personalised decoration from my Mum!

Shoutout to my Mum for providing me with most of these decorations! 

See you guys next Sunday for a new festive blog post
