My Living Room Ideas...Wednesday, January 28, 2015
This week Dave & I put pen to paper and signed the contract for our new house... and if everything goes to plan in a month or two we will be home owners. Yay! The owners of a brand new house, a complete blank slate. Which is soooo exciting and also a little terrifying. I have been dying to put my stamp on a property for the longest time and actually owning this house will mean we can literally do whatever want.
Ive been trying to build up ideas of what I want, imagining each room and its function and creating little mood boards. The last thing I wanna do is go in gung ho and decorate or buy items and then realise they dont match our style or the room as a whole.
In this post I thought Id focus on the living room, which is a room we so far have not one stick of furniture for. My initial idea is pale grey walls, graphic print cushions and colourful chairs and sofas hopefully with a retro teak sideboard (if I can ever find one in my price budget) & a gallery wall of prints and photos...
These are some of the pieces currently on my wishlist, mixing pastels, greys and acid yellows seems to be a recurring theme!
Sofa: M&S Loft Collection, Cushion: H&M, Metal Container: H&M, Grey Chair: Ikea,
Lanterns: Next, Cushion: Next, Coffee Table: Ikea, Ceiling Light: Next, Candlesticks: Northlight Homestore.
I have no idea what my overall interior style is, Dave says its eclectic. It doesnt really fit into one box. I love a little bit of country rustic, modern Scandinavian and some retro pieces thrown in for good measure. I just hope when we do put everything together its a good mishmash of styles and not a hot mess!
How do you go about decorating a room? Any tips or hints for me to help me along my novice way?
