I am now finally finished re decorating our living room, with the exception of the curtains that are currently in the wash.
It is more light and open now and I am so pleased with it!
I wanted a beige theme to make the room lighter, I also feel that it goes better with the colour of the floor, as opposed to our old grey one.
We got the Ektorp 3 seater sofa fro IKEA, a very nice and affordable sofa. The covers are easy to remove and can be washed in the washing machine. Greg loves to sit with his feet stretched so I also got the foot stool that is great because it has storage room inside and can be moved when we have company if we want more seating space.
I decided to decorate with some pillows that goes with the theme but also breaks the all beige colour. And they are so comfortable when snuggling on the sofa!
I was worried that the carpet might be a bit to dark, but when it all came together I thought that it was actually a really good colour to go with the room as I feel white might make the room look too cold. The carpet is HEMP from Ikea and it is only £40 pounds.
Our table is JOKKMOKK From IKEA, only £85 for the table and the 4 chairs!
I love how the room is that much more open and convenient, and it feels much more natural structured.
One of the things that I didn’t like about the way we had it before was that we covered up the mantle piece with the sofa and our windows with big long curtains. Now I feel that they both really have come into place and make great decorations in them selves. Blinds was defiantly more appropriate for these kinds of windows and the mantle piece is no longer covered up.
And lastly – some decorations;
So there it is, our new living room. The project is done!
I am so happy with it, I feel like I can relax much more here and get my spirits lifted. Thankfully Greg was very happy with it as well! Now we are working on tidying our guest room, or the “spider room” as I call it after finding a huge spider in there 5 months ago.
Have a lovely day everyone!
