I love Habitat - simply designed stuff and an amazing lighting section!

It's worth mentioning thought that Habitat is a British company, and there are many stores in the UK; as well as some in Germany, France and Spain too.

This room is missing a focal point. I would leave the wall white and get a big statement headboard and some bedding to complement it. With such a plain room you can really go to town.

Then once you have the colour of the bed and headboard sorted, you can think about the wall colour to compliment it, if needs be.

However, if this is not an option I would go for a natural calming colour for the wall that seems to suit the mood of the room - blues, greens or a camel colour? And then tie in your accessories to fit.

The original piece of furniture had so much potential. It's hard to see if the piece as it now stands fits the room - but as a stand alone item it's magic is lost on me. Dark and depressing.

I would try and make the thru-room into a living and dining space. For both entertaining guests over dinner, but also a comfy place to chat over a cup of tea with friends. Maybe get a corner sofa and swap the rectangular dining table for a circular and maybe collapsable one. And think about hanging the TV on a wall instead of having a huge TV stand.

In the past six years I've lived in seven different homes over two countries and three cities. From student halls sharing a bathroom with 30 others and no kitchen, to a 5 bedroomed house with a garden and a 2 bed ground floor flat.

I want to stay still and not move again for a while. Now I have ditched living with housemates (and finally finished uni)maybe I'll have more luck!

As the rest of the room is neutral, it would be great to give that wall some impact. Some big statement curtains, with a pelmet maybe, rather than a curtain rail.
Then for the wall above... leave it be... but use light to add to the drama. Perhaps install a strip light (or something similar) along the back of the shelf which will wash the wall above with glorious colour.
