No Joke: SNL's Cecily Strong Gets an Epic Apartment Makeover

May 1 2014 - 4:07am

Saturday Night Live [1]'s Cecily Strong is all fun and games, but her NYC apartment was a different story. Before its makeover, her studio was, well . . . a joke. Seeking to make a change, Cecily turned to her local West Elm stylist [2] for help (BTW, this service is totally free). Together, the duo redesigned her digs into a space filled with personality and style. Between the bright blue walls, quirky accessories, and trendy marquee letter [3], her place is worthy of an audience. Take note of the amazing transformation below.

Although it's a studio, Cecily's space doesn't lack seating. Between the blue sofa [5] and leather chair, there is plenty of space for guests.

Making the most of city living, a small table creates a dining area, and her midcentury-inspired media unit [7] offers plenty of storage.

If you're on a budget, a few bold accessories will completely transform your space. Posters are also a great alternative to a can of paint — especially in a rental!

Quirky pillows help to portray Cecily's playful personality.
