11 Dec How to make a student house a home?
This week I picked up the keys to my new flat, to start moving back to Bournemouth to finish my Industrial Design degree. So, I am sad to say, this is my last post for Ken Rand Partners.
Walking through the bear walls of the scarcely used flat, the magnolia environment engulfs the entire property. It got me thinking, what makes a house a home when you can’t physically change the property?
1. Lighting – The lighting is a key part of giving a room an atmosphere. It is also a really economical way that has an immediate effect. Instead of using the ceiling lighting provided, why not invest in some table top lamps? This is perfect for getting the right amount of ambience for a living room or bedroom. If you have an office, why not try a floor standing light? where you can alter the direction of multiple bulbs to highlight your desk, storage or bookcases.
