With Autumn on the horizon, there’s no better time to become newly inspired with your interiors. But if cash flow is, well, slow, here are four ways to shop high-end interior looks on a student’s budget!
If you want to mesh on-trend hipster living with a do-good attitude, start planting. Herbs are easy to care for and planters are a gorgeous way to bring light and love into your home in the colder months. They are incredibly easy to plant – and stay alive. And if you’re lucky, they will save you stacks of money on garnishes for the plate and vases for months to come. Plant a pretty herb box on a balcony space or even use as a centrepiece for an otherwise bare table. Go for mint for its fullness and fresh smell. If flowers are more your thing, African Violets and Hibiscus are bursting with colour and are incredibly difficult to kill!

In summer, it’s all about rattan. But come autumn and winter, those toes want a little more loving with a lusher texture underfoot. If you don’t have polished boards or concrete, ensure your floors experience a renaissance with a throw rug. They don’t have to be expensive, and if you have a smaller space, individual shapes can enhance these areas. Go for a circular mat under a central coffee table in a lounge area to create a larger scale of space.
