My rented home used to be student digs!

Before Teri Muncey came along, this flat was student accommodation, but now it’s a beacon of creativity and simple Scandi style

GOOD IDEA

Paint your own artwork, just as Teri has, to pick out colours in the room’s scheme

Teri’s living space is full of high street finds; the lamp is from Homebase, the side table and grey sofa are Habitat, and she found the black sofa on Wayfair.com

Living area

‘The thing that struck us about the living room at first was just how much white wall there was to fill,’ Teri explains. ‘I got to work creating art to fill the space; the huge abstract canvas I painted turns the intimidatingly large expanse above the sofa into a real focal point. All of the furniture is a little nod to our love of all things Scandinavian, and is great for both of us as nothing has ended up too feminine.’

Being a rented property, Teri had to be clever with her furniture choices.‘I would have loved a wallmounted bookcase, but I have to be careful with how much goes on the walls. The ladder shelving works perfectly, as it opens up the room whilst still fitting with the rest of the furniture.’

About Homestyle

Do you love the idea of having the picture-perfect dinner party, but just don’t have the space to festoon your home with a 12-seater dining table? Well, so do most of us! That’s why this issue the HomeStyle team set deputy editor, Natalie, the task of coming up with some nifty ways to make even the tiniest spaces a veritable bastion of housewarming joy. Flick through to page 74 for our hearty feature on making your guests feel welcome – whatever the size of your pad. Some of the most creative ideas for entertaining glee are born from lack of space – necessity often being the mother of invention. I personally can’t think of anything better than lounging on a comfy floor cushion, around a coffee table set for the occasion, with candlelight, soft music, fine wine, warming food (don’t miss our Indian feast recipes on page 66 – yum!) and the best of friends. What could make for a better evening? After all, the secret of being a great host is helping your visitors quickly relax and have a good time, and if you need some matching china to seal the deal, turn to our budget picks on page 102. There’s something for everyone.
