When we popped down to House of Fraser’s AW15 press day a few months back we were a little obsessed with their ‘Juxtapose’ collection which was totally geometric and seriously cool. We’ve based these home ware picks on that collection because we can’t get enough. Grab some fresh bits for your new halls or flat from House of Fraser with 10% off, even on sale items! Wake up fresh in these cute Rise & Shine sheets by Helena Springfield - yellow is such a happy colour! Even when you’ve had a rough night these sunny sheets will help you feel perky. Then, continue the fresh-theme with Linea’s chevron towels. Whether you’re in a flat or a room in halls, coasters will be an essential. You don’t want to be ruining any surfaces (no matter how grotty they already look!). Trust us, landlords will know! Grab yourself some cute coasters and bid coffee cup rings goodbye for ever. Another top tip is to get yourself a recognisable mug, sure someone will probably ‘borrow’ it but it’s always nice to have a mug that’s yours! We like this Ellie the Elephant Orla Kiely one. Halls and student flats can sometimes have a tell-tale smell of years of student living, we’re not sure what it is but it lingers! No matter how many windows are flung open, you’ll need to refresh your room to make it feel like your own. If your halls or flat doesn’t have an open flame rule, a cute candle is a great way to inject a little fragrance into your surroundings, vanilla is a great all round scent. If the open-flame rule is in force, some room spray will do the job just fine! A little bit fancier than air-freshener, but go on, you’re worth it. Don’t forget to take a mirror. Halls usually have mirrors in the most bizarre places so you’ll probably want one that’s portable. We’re loving the metallic prettiness of this Christiane Lemieux mirror, a little added glam never hurt!
