In this case, the next step was moving into a flat with my boyfriend. As we both moved away from home for uni we decided to rent a flat where we both currently live instead of moving to one of our home towns.
Currently the living room and bedrooms are full of suitcases and bags so I can't wait to unpack everything and really make the flat feel like a home. Once we get this done I'll write another post with more photos to hopefully give anyone moving into a new home or student accommodation some ideas for decorating.

hungry and tired after 5 hours of moving/cleaning)
