Junk Room Turned Cozy, Bright Family Room Makeover | Living Room Ideas | The Home Primp
Do you have a corner (or, let’s face it — a room) in your house that’s reserved for things you just don’t have anywhere else to store? We’re here to help. In this week’s Home Primp, we collaborated with lifestyle vlogger Elle Lindquist whose loft space was a cluttered dumping ground without any real function. She wanted a space where her family could kick back and relax and also double as a place for guests to stay overnight. After getting rid of the pool and foosball table, there was such a bright, open space for us to work with. We set out to create a living room/guest room/playroom hybrid.
Using removable wallpaper, Alexandra created an accent wall. She also hung a mantle that belonged to Elle’s dad, which instantly made the space feel more like a living room.
And can we talk about that couch?! This brought the primp’s cost up but for a couch that folds down into a double bed for guests, $400 is a pretty sweet deal.
Alexandra used an Ikea bookshelf as a window seat and storage unit in the boys’ play area. She turned fabric plant pots (!) that cost $4 embellished with pom poms (what else) into baskets to organize their toys.
The result? A few key items turned this storage space into a beautiful, bright and airy living room — for under $1000.
