Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence are apparently saving their millions by purchasing cut-price furniture.

The 24-year-old British actor reportedly has a new home in north London with his girlfriend and X-Men co-star J-Law.

But Nick’s sister, actress Clarista Hoult, tells UK newspaper The Sun her sibling isn’t using his success as an excuse to splurge on home decor.

“It’s his first house. He’s very excited and has been getting all his furniture from Ikea,” Clarista said.

Apparently Nick is making sure his new digs feel warm and inviting, however. Clarista says he’s become very interested in creating a harmonious environment at home, and that has a lot to do with how he decorates the abode.

“Nick has been big into feng shui, so in his room he has had branches, twigs with lights, the mattress and everything else on the floor – like water features and chairs – facing in the right direction,” she explained.

Jennifer meanwhile is said to be planning to take some time off in the wake of her success with The Hunger Games and X-Men franchises.

Apparently the Oscar-winning actress is keen to keep out of the public eye for a bit so she can spend more time with her love.

The couple met while filming X-Men: First Class back in 2011, and recent reports suggested Jen blames their hectic work schedules for a brief split at the start of last year.

"She wants it to work this time. She's decided to take some time for herself," a source told British magazine Now last month.

The couple have yet to comment publicly on the claims.
