    I've mounted my walls with the heads of all the girls I lured back there in freshers week.

    Ambient light, posters of things you're passionate about. No family or friend photos though.

    I'm in a student house as opposed to halls so it already looks homier. But I have a bunch of yummy scented candles, a large elephant painting (though that's a Christmas present for my mum so won't stay there). And just a couple of cute trinkets here are there. Also a nice bed set with a blanket makes it look much nice. You might also want to get a bedside light if you don't like having the harsh light of the big light always on. I use candles instead myself.

    Are candles allowed in halls?

    When I was in halls my contract didn't say. Some will say they're not allowed. So just make sure you never leave a candle unattended. Never put it within 30cm in any direction of something that can catch fire and put them away during inspections.

    I'm sure my son Sheridan has decorated his room only in the most tasteful manner of course.
    He's at university you know - studying tapestry design and advanced needlework.

    It's the same room in the SAME house I've grown up in for a portion of my life... (I live at home)

    It's got a retro clock, a new lick of paint, a desk and chair, two bookcases, a wardrobe and two lockable filing cabinets with a printer...

    Somehow managed to pull off an office functionality with a bedroom feel...
