STYLIST HOUSE CALL
With a $1000 budget and a few smart moves, Super Stylist Corina makes this space work for the whole family.
This living room was becoming a kids’ playroom, so Super Stylist Corina gave it a makeover with a budget of $1000.
“I love what Corina has done. It’s a style I feel confident adding to.”
VICTORIA THOMPSON and partner Darren moved into their rented apartment in Cremorne, NSW, almost three years ago when their daughter Emily was only eight months old. Since then, they have welcomed baby Owen, now 15 months old, and their life has become very busy!
“We moved from a larger apartment into this one to save up for a house deposit,” says Victoria. But their second bub came along quicker than expected, and they’re now outgrowing the space.
“Two young children come with a lot of toys and I’ve run out of ideas for storing them. This is a large apartment with great natural light, but I’ve never bothered with the interiors as it’s always felt so temporary,” explains Victoria. “But I think we’ll be here for some time yet, so I’d love to get rid of the clutter and give our living room a more minimalist, grown-up feel.”
Super stylist Corina decides a modern Scandi look will work really well in the large, light-filled living room.
After a general declutter, a few new key pieces teamed with a smattering of inexpensive accessories completes our stylist’s work. “I love what Corina has done with the space,” says Victoria. “It feels so much larger and brighter and the kids love rolling around on the new rug and rocking in the chair! It’s also in a style that I feel confident adding to. As for the toys and clutter, this was a great excuse for me to have a good sort and come up with solutions for storage in the bedrooms.”
