We’re at a stage of having a plan of action with what to actually do with our living room. So much so that I’ve bought some paint and as you can see, have begun to furnish the room already. Well. In my head and via Pinterest anyway. Here we have some of my Living Room Inspiration.
I know, you’re probably thinking ‘what have you been doing?’ Yes, it’s been a while since I wrote about our living room and being time for an update, however, holidays, work and social events have meant that we haven’t been able to block a weekend off to get started.
So as I mentioned in my first post, we’re keeping the statement wall/wallpaper as it is. It’s such a lovely print and although I’m sure it was originally shown as a bedroom paper, I think it works really well in adding ‘something’ to our living room. It’s this kind of something that I’m wanting to evolve with throughout the living room via accessories etc.
Our carpet – a pale speckled brown and furniture – a walnut colour also staying, so I decided upon —— as a paint choice. This was just from the B&Q range. I felt this also complimented the wallpaper, which looks different dependant upon the light. It’s got a champagne look to it.
Trying to stay away from brown accessories, I’ve decided to continue working with the wallpaper by adding in some grey. This will come through with things like this grey chenille throw from Matalan and jacquard weave cushion from H&M.
Our living also has black attributes, mainly in the form of the massive TV, (which we so need) sky box, curtain pole and other such minor things. So when I spotted this La Redoute magazine rack I knew it had a perfect in our living room.
Curtains wise, I’m still in nomad land with. I think until the walls are painted and I can see the room as a not so much blank canvas, I’ll be able to decide. Currently sat between a grey and a shade similar to these Dunelm ones, which are a ‘solar biscuit’ shade. Time will tell.
So this weekend marks the start. The walls are bare. Reading for lining paper. Then the fun begins.
Wish me luck. Or my husband. Either or.
