We just can’t get enough of Melbourne-based illustrator + maker, Beci Orpin! As you may have seen, we recently made over her bedroom (check it out here if you missed it). Today, we return to her home to give her living room the same fun treatment, just in time for the holidays. The result? A living room that celebrates fun, colour and individuality. As an extra-special treat, Beci designed a set of downloadable festive gift tags exclusively for us — and you! See the makeover below + get your free gift tag download here.

Beci’s favorite new west elm piece?
“I actually love the Round Lush Velvet Pillows the most! They are such great colours. The Zelda Bar Cabinet will also get a good workout come Christmas, and the rug really works well with the pink walls and makes the whole room feel light.”

Beci’s best tip for adding colour + personality to the home:

“I like to add things that I have made or that my kids have made – they have excellent sentimental meaning and can’t be found anywhere else. I also love looking for vintage items, anything that is unique.”
