I transformed a dingy lounge into a stunning boho space on a strict budget and people are calling it ‘utterly divine’ | The Sun

A WOMAN who hated her dingy living room enlisted the help of interior designer Whinnie Williams to transform it into a chic boho space.

Whinnie – one of the hosts of BBC Three makeover show Flat Out Fabulous – took to TikTok to share a video documenting the transformation.

"This living room was just like an alley into the kitchen so the sofas were in a weird place," she explained.

"So I got rid of them. I’m painting the ceiling dark to drop that down and make it cosy.

"Botanic wallpaper – yes!

"Then I made a massive platform because I thought, ‘I’m going to make a giant sofa to chill out on’.

Captioning the video, Whinnie wrote: "£600 well spent. Head to bbc3 to watch #FlatOutFabulous to see how I did it."

People flocked to the comments section to praise Whinnie for the incredible transformation.
