The Pink Living Room: Get The Meknis’ Look
Our new TV adverts show real people in their real homes. As one of our featured families, The Meknis let us peek into their home to see how they’ve styled their Dunelm purchases and made us a part of their life. We also got some insight into how they’ve made a pale pink and white colour scheme work in their busy family living room.
Family is everything to teenage sweethearts, Tarak and Ami Mekni, and with five children they certainly have their hands full! This doesn’t mean they’ve compromised on interior style, using a prominent theme of pink and white in their home which gives the space a bright and light feel (much to Tarak’s bemusement). Here is a sneak peek into their home, with helpful styling tips on the way – to help you achieve their softly shaded but highly functional family space.
The Meknis’ living room is the centre of their home – a place where life happens and they feel most at home. Their sofa is the hub of the room and the key factor behind choosing their sofa was that they all had to fit on it – success!
Tip: Throws amp-up the cosy factor on sofas and they’re also a stylish way to protect the sofa from sticky fingers.
Ami loves cushions, with pattern and texture being absolutely crucial for her family, due to the five pairs of potentially sticky hands! Ami has used white and grey cushions to complement the pink perfectly and add depth to the colour palette.
With five young children, storing all of their bits and bobs can be tricky. The Meknis have utilised their storage space with the Lucy Cane Storage Bench, which Tarik describes as being “full of life” as it houses all of the kids’ toys.
Tip: Benches are a great way to store anything, they can also double up as a comfortable seat so are perfect for hallways.
With a unique aesthetic throughout, the Meknis’ home reflects their personality, style and their loving family. They’ve balanced their lifestyle needs with a blend of traditional and shabby chic style to create their perfect space.
