Aoife had a strict budget when decorating the space.

Each week, we step inside a reader’s home, and indulge in some copycat behaviour, creating a shopping list inspired by their interior style.

This week, Aoife Maria’s (@style.sosimple) living room was our inspiration.

“This is a rental apartment so the main thing was to work within a super small budget while also making the space feel homely,” says Aoife. “I had seen the rug before we moved in and knew I wanted it, so I worked the colours in the space around that.”

The most important element in a room, for me, is the layout and working with the space. You could have a showroom interior that looks amazing, but if you get the initial layout of the interior wrong it will never be comfortable or enjoyable. 

Wayfair, JYSK and H&M were Aoife’s main ports of call when decorating this space. Below are six high street items that’ll help you get the look in your own home…

1. Frida floral print, €14.95, Poster Store

The colour’s in Aoife’s poster match the room perfectly.
