From flat pack to fabulous! Update your tired-looking living spaces with a one-stop shop
Get set to update your tired living space with just a one-stop shop
Allow space between bookcases for a roller-blind projector screen, as here. But, once the credits have rolled, a plain white panel won’t look so hot! Pull it up to reveal an arty wall-hanging – just extrawide fabric you buy by the metre, which you line, and hang from a rod!
To soften brick walls, opt for deep and squashy sofas with curved arms. Repeat the curves elsewhere – the round coffee table, stool and decorative accents. Nod to industrial style and include mood lighting that would be right at home in a factory.
Place anything behind glass and it becomes a highly-prized object, so put a curio cabinet on the top of your shopping list. And, these flat-pack beauties are low enough to allow you to lean and casually overlap different size prints against the wall and each other.
If you believe brick walls are a design drawback, think again, for they’ll add warmth and much textural interest. The impact of overly large expanses of brickwork can be limited with furniture. No need for a rendered or lime-washed brick disguise. Yay!
