Sue went for a quirky mix of styles in her dining area. She found the artwork in Amsterdam and the feather lampshade in Paris. Her window seat is great for curling up and watching the world go by. The large white rug is in fact two smaller ones that Sue sewed together.
Modern living room
The smart grey sofa and metal trolley gives the living/dining room a funky industrial feel. Sue found the locker in a second-hand shop and restored it herself by stripping off the paint.

To give the living area a hit of pattern and colour, Sue made cushion covers from retro-style dress fabric. She finished off the look with wallpaper in a light, pretty pattern to add a softer feel.
Sue went for modern look in her kitchen with gloss-white kitchen units that give the space a light and airy feel. The fab contemporary extractor fan is sleek and unobtrusive perfect for a small room.

Floating kitchen shelves
Instead of a divan bed, Sue went for a design with legs so she could use the extra storage space underneath. The bold Blue Lady painting provides a focal point for the bedroom and adds a bright pop of colour.

As her bathroom is rather small, Sue went for a minimalist look and chose floating fittings, like the sink, which saved on space, while metro-style tiles help to make it feel more spacious. She fitted castors to the timber greengrocer's crate so she could tuck it away under the sink. It's perfect for bathroom storage.

Sue loves the unusual shape of her one-bedroom Victorian flat in Brighton which she renovated on a tight budget with retro decorative fabrics, recycled furniture and vintage finds.
