She is set to welcome her first child with fiancé Ryan Thomas any day now, but that hasn't stopped Lucy Mecklenburgh from continuing work on re-decorating her beautiful home ahead of their new arrival. After tackling the kitchen, hallway and baby's nursery, the latest room to receive a makeover is her dining area, which she unveiled on her Instagram account for her home at the weekend.

The kitchen and dining room is open-plan, but while she has stuck with a muted grey and white palette in the kitchen area, Lucy has added splashes of colour in the dining area with bottle green velvet chairs, and metallic accents courtesy of the wall mirror and light.

The finished effect is stunning, although Lucy said she is still considering covering the walls with wallpaper. However, many of her followers advised against it, and agreed that the room looks great as it is.

Lucy also proved that you don't need to spend a fortune to give a dining room a luxurious makeover, as many of her purchases were from high street stores including John Lewis, Laura Ashley and Anthropologie. The centrepiece of the area, her walnut dining table and chairs are from Made.com. The Lule dining chairs cost £249 for a set of two and are also available in an array of shades including royal blue, blush pink or grey.
