How to Transform Your Uni Room + Smash Desk Goals

How to Transform Your Uni Room + Smash Desk Goals

Let’s be realistic here. You’re never going to finish writing that essay in bed. 

You’ll close your eyes from ten minutes; then wake up and realise that you were fell asleep for 40 minutes, or you’ll set yourself up at your messy desk; then move to the kitchen; then the cafe down the road, and suddenly it'll be 5pm and you’ll wonder what the hell you’ve actually done all day.

So to make sure that doesn't happen, we scoured Instagram to make sure your uni room and workspace layout is conducive to work and an all-round happy place. Here are the five desks that’ll make you want to knuckle down and study.

THE MINIMALIST JUNGLE

According psychology of colour research, green instantly tells your brain to chill out, so a lil’ flora will not only purify the air and add colour and energy to your humble abode, but it’ll also help you step back and relax (not too much that’s called procrastination). So, go ahead and get your uni room some low-maintenance leafiness.


THE COLOURFUL RAINBOW

Imagine this, your stress levs are skyrocketing as you get closer to a deadline, and then you take a look at your gorg kaleidescope desk setup and all is good in the world. Who can be miserable when your study space is a rainbow of joy? Yep, it’s time for a bedroom overhaul and this one can be easily achieved with a lineup of mounted frames. 

THE PASTEL DREAM

This sorbet heaven desk situation is all kinds dreamy. It’s much easier to get shit done when you’ve colour-coordinated your stationery and notes by subject, then you have zero excuse for not knowing where things are. And that’s not even the best part, check that washi tape daily to-do list. That's some serious ingenuity right there.

THE MONOCHROME MINIMALIST

We’re big fans of a black and white theme. And a sweet bonus, it’s so easy to decorate your wall with tear outs from magazines, photo printouts (with a monochrome filter, duh!) and even your notebook doodles from today’s class. 

THE SCANDI ESCAPE

Could this little corner arrangement be anymore serene? We love the DIY touches –the homemade bunting crafted out of paper and string, that smiley recycling bin, and who could miss those carefully arranged polaroids on the corkboard?! So simple and so cute.
