There’s a chance you’ve seen Farwa Moledina‘s kitchen before. She caught the attention of TikTok and Instagram audiences when she turned her “boring, standard, new-build” kitchen (that was in too good of a condition to tear out) into a truly stunning, one-of-a-kind space. Most impressively, she and her husband, Asgher, did it themselves — and without breaking the bank.

What was once a very bland white space has been transformed into a moody kitchen with dark cabinets (that they painted and added cool hardware to), a pink-tile backsplash (that they installed themselves), and a delightful combination of a simple wooden shelf and hardware that makes the space organized. Her DIY ideas have become so popular that she now boasts 75k followers on her TikTok, @thehousewiththepinkbed, and almost 15k on her Instagram account of the same name.

“My style is colourful yet calm,” she writes. “I love adding character and personality to our previously bland new-build home. I enjoy subtly clashing patterns and textures in a way that isn’t overwhelming, particularly in the bedroom. I love incorporating pink in our home, and luckily so does my husband!”

Each room in their Birmingham house that the couple shares with their young daughter, Sofia, and cat, Luna, has received a stunning makeover. Over the last four years, they have slowly transformed their new-build into a home filled with color and pattern, blending modern and traditional styles. And while their home looks like it was effortlessly designed, Farwa says the biggest challenge was “[s]tarting from scratch with no sense of what we liked/would work for us, in a house that had absolutely no character. The rooms were all white and boxy and looked the same, so it was difficult to know where to start.”

And just in case you weren’t completely impressed yet with Farwa the content creator, she’s also an internationally known contemporary artist, too.
