Lucy's living room revamp round 2

As I said in my last post, my lovely friend Lucy bought her first flat. It is a lovely one bedroom flat, the rooms are a good size and it gets plenty of light from the big windows. The only downside is the decor is really uninspiring and make the flat look dark. Last time I went for a scandi minimalist look. This week I am I am adding some soft colours to the living space. I based my look around one of my favourite rugs from Urban Outfitters.

Lucy's living room revamp

My lovely friend Lucy just bought her first flat. She hasn't got her keys yet but she has already asked me to think of ways she could make her one bed flat much nicer on a tight budget. Lucy has no furniture and needs to buy EVERYTHING. I have started giving her ideas to create a space she loves.

First up is the living room. At the moment it is really middle of the road and a bit blah in terms of decor. It isn't horrible but it's not exciting either. I think, regardless of the style she is going to go for, there are a couple of things that could be done that would immediately make this room 10x better!
  • Either remove or paint over the wallpaper
  • Paint the window surround white
  • Paint the floor white or sand it and oil it so it's a paler shade
  • Paint the tiles behind the fireplace white or black

Addicted to Monoqi!

One of my dear friend introduced me to this shop, well by introduce me I meant she liked them on Facebook and straight away I was hooked! I love good design and MONOQI seems to curate a beautiful hand-picked collection. They showcase hard-to-find and limited edition design products, making them available for a short time on MONOQI.
I managed to spend a good hour and half today browsing their site and filling my basket ( instead of studying!)
here are some of my favourite items, I would happily have them all in my house.
