In the past few weeks, I have made some improvements to ameliorate my study environment. This includes great study habits posters as well as leaves and lights.

The brand-new study habits posters can not only remind me to form some productive study habits for a long term but also enhance my bedroom's visual effects.

I usually use my old phones as a desk clock and study timer to limit my studying time and see the current time and date. This can be controlled remotely using my desk computer.

The bedroom decoration methodology originates from the apartment decoration competition of our school's Oxbridge College as well as some (I)GCSE, A Level and university student vlogs.

Later on, I have also made and set up more rattans and decoration light strings, balcony with flowers, and welcoming words.

Today, I am going to introduce and demonstrate my decorations and the overall design around my bedroom. Here we go!

Main Desk and Workspace

The place that I use the most is the main desk, in which I usually use my home PC as well as studying using paper materials.

Most people's desks, including the desk at my school apartment, lean on the walls to have some decorative things on them. However, my home's desk is an exception, in which I need to have a board at other places.

Bookshelf and Charging Area

There are 2 special places at the left and the right sides of the desk, which are the bookshelf and charging area respectively.

The bookshelf on the left holds the books and paper materials along with a water bottle.

The right charging area charges my iPhone, AirPods Pro and Apple Watch wirelessly and/or with MagSafe, and my MacBook Pro and power bank using cables at the edge of the table.

My previous MacBook Air (I call it Mac mini) is used as the main unit of my home PC which is placed at the desk edge.

There is also a plant that provides me oxygen and fresh air for breathing.

Workspace, Study Clock and Timer

The middle of my main desk is my workspace, which contains a PC monitor, keyboard, mouse, and a study clock and timer.

I use my old phones (about 6 years ago) as my desk clock. It has been programmed by myself with a browser (e.g. Chrome) using HTML, JavaScript, CSS, PHP and MySQL.

The clocks in my bedroom can be remotely controlled using my PC since they all connect to the same WiFi network and my home PC is also a development web server which is used to debug my website codes.

During the sleeping time, the clock screen will be turned off or dimmed to improve my sleeping quality.

The source codes are available now and you can learn more about, download it and set it up.

Now, I am going to talk about relevant A Level Computer Science (9618) knowledge: Private IP Addresses.

IP(v4) addresses have private and public addresses. Private addresses are only visible in the internal network (same WiFi) while public addresses are visible around the world.

My home WiFi uses the range "" and all devices have private IP addresses inside the network. For example, my PC (also the server) has the static private IP address "", which can be accessed by clock phone screens.

Since I am a Computer Science student, I can write some codes in programming languages to make my old phones functional and my home's WiFi network is managed by myself. That's why I can turn my old phones into some useful desk clocks.

Cable Management

Behind my main desk, the cables are well-organised with cable management so that I can have a sense of tidiness.

The cables are organised with some stickers for cables and bandages. As well as organising cables, I have also entwined the cables with some rattans and decoration lights to hide the cables and improve the overall appearance.

Back Bookshelf

At the opposite side of my desk, there is a back bookshelf embedded on the wall.

It holds some books that are not commonly used as well as some stationeries and redundant charging cables.

The bookshelf has a large volume so I can put many things there. I just need to turn around to obtain the items on it.

Home Desk Back Bookshelf

On the inner side between the desk and the back bookshelf, I put my luggage and bag beside the printer. The cables pass through there from the power socket at the back.

Since the automated vacuum cleaner runs on a daily basis, the horizontal separation bar is used as the barrier for it to prevent entwining the cables.

The next thing is the pinboard. As I mentioned above, the pinboard is usually directly above the desk if the desk lies on the wall.

It usually involves some photos about myself as well as universities in the UK (e.g. Cambridge, Imperial). It also contains some "Great Study Habits are Productive" stickers, decoration lights and plants.

Decoration Lights and Plants

The first thing is the decoration lights. They have been hung at different places to increasing the lighting effects.

As well as the lights, plants like rattans are also used to entwine the lights or increase the visual effects in other places.

The lights can be either flash or steady on, but I always set the latter since this can avoid distractions.

Great Study Habits Stickers

The "Great Study Habits are Productive" stickers can let me form great habits for a long time. This not only appears on the pinboard, but also turns up at other locations, including cupboards and switches.

Now, I am going to talk about relevant A Level Mathematics (9709) knowledge: Differentiation and Integration.

Calculus contains differentiation and integration. Differentiation is used to find the gradient of a graph at a certain point, while integration is used to find the area under a graph within a range.

In Mechanics, velocity, displacement and acceleration can be represented with calclus, which is shown in the third sticker above representing daily accumulation can produce great outcomes.

  • v = ds/dt
  • a = dv/dt
  • s = ∫v dt
  • v = ∫a dt

Stickers in Other Places


Previously, the blackboard in my bedroom was used as an English vocabulary board from 2018 to 2019, which was then replaced by knowledge flashcards and Quizlet.

In 2020, according to my past study strategies, it is used to be a status board. Then, it was emptied as it is replaced by my Study Planner app.

Right now, I am using it to show the upcoming projects and events as well as my electronic study planner.

Balcony, Flowers and Welcoming Words

Later on, I have also set up my balcony, bought some flowers with my parents, and placed them on it, improving the visual effects outside.

A banner with welcoming words and my personal logo was also drawn and set up on the door along with rattans to welcome myself from school and some guests.

Storage Area and Cupboard

The last place of my bedrom is the storage area and cupboard, which stores my clothes as well as redundant items.

All areas are labelled and all items are grouped and placed neatly so that I can rapidly find the items I want.

In fact, my production web server is not in my bedroom because I need to improve the appearance. It is located in an IDC (Internet Data Centre),


These are the setup and decorations of my bedroom. I hope you can enjoy it and study productively with my suggestions.
