This is possibly my favourite room in our house, apart from our bedroom. Oh, and my office. I still want some wall art putting up and I'm scouring Etsy endlessy looking for lovely print. I also want some nice throws to hide the ugly sofas that we're hoping to replace in the next year or two (I fancy a nice corner one).
The only problem I seem to be facing is the colour scheme. I originally went with cream when I bought the curtains from Primark, but then when it came to cushions - which are from Matalan by the way, I thought 'Oh, mint and coral will look nice'. Then I used the cushions that used to be on my bed to pair with the chevron ones and so theres a bit of a coral, cream, mint and black love affair going on in our living room. Any suggestions or pretty homeware you've seen online let me know!
All our furniture, sofas, coffee table and TV stand are all from Ikea. I still want the Expedit shelving unit too but it's just finding somewhere to put it in here. Maybe I'll have to wait for that corner sofa.
My coffee table is often scattered with the same stuff in the photos. The sweet jars I like to fill with sweets so people get a nice treat when they come round, normally my sisters spot them first. I'm forever burning the yankee candle oils in my oil burner, my current scent is Sugared Vanilla and I also keep a stash of magazines underneath.
I couldn't finish without mentioning our house phone. It's my Mum's from about 20 years ago and it's still got peoples names that she's written next to the speed dial buttons. I love the personal touch and how retro it looks and would hate to replace it with a "modern" phone.
