Functional beauty ‘My new wardrobe is just a pair of rails. I have a third on the balcony where I air semi-dirty clothes,’ says Mia. ‘With open storage it’s so easy to see what you have. And you can add your twist – like spraying plastic hangers hot pink!’

Hang and repeat Take a playful approach to storage. Hooks have many uses, but they can be the statement piece in a room if you go bold – have fun with what you choose to hang up. ‘It’s such a simple idea – fix a row of hooks to the wall – but all my guests go crazy for it!’ says Mia.

A home from home Mia left her home in Sweden and relocated to India to join the IKEA India start-up team, as Creative Leader of Life at Home. She moved into an impersonal apartment and set about transforming it into an inviting home that reflects her personal style. See the rest of her place here.
