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.”

Nat­u­ral touch Wo­ven fur­ni­ture is airy and less bulky than solid pieces. after Light and lively New white pieces and ac­ces­sories help cre­ate the feel­ing of more space.
