Hi everyone,

I am hoping for some ideas to spruce up my house. I currently live in a 1960 weatherboard house. I have 2 bedrooms and an enclosed veranda.

I am trying to slowly make it look better and a bit more stylish, as we still have our original furniture from when we left home at 16.

My living room and dining room is 1 room with no dividers, but has a badly built fire place in the middle of it. It is a rental so I can not pull the fireplace out, but it is falling to pieces anyway.

I have a dark chocolate 5 piece dining table, book case, coffee table & low sitting entertainment unit. A dark and light purple rug in the living room, a blue sued lounge in the living room.

I also have an ugly (my partner bought it and loved it) red persian rug under the table (partner's choice again) in the dining.

The flooring is polished timber floorboards.

I have a 3 ft ft tank, a chocolate ottoman which is actually my cat's bed & the usual TV and surround sound system.

I really love anything dark and spooky or anything whimsical, but I feel that I can not have that, as the rooms in the house are quite dark, as where the windows are positioned it does not get any sunlight.

Any thoughts/ideas suggestions is much appreciated.

I can post pics if needed, but thye will be from a phone or ipad, as my house wsa broken into and laptops, camera and computer where stolen.

Since it's dark, maybe you could brighten things up with some whimsical lighting?  Something you love and can take with you when you move.  Check out the 'lamp' tagged topics and see if you are inspired.
