This year we have big plans to make our house beautiful, starting with a new bathroom in February which I will be writing more about very soon but today I wanted to concentrate on our living room as it is my favourite room in the house and I want it to be a perfect space for our family and also suitable for entertaining guests.
Currently my bay window is leaking so we have a bowl on the window sill which is catching all the water; so first up we need to get a new roof on the bay window and have the window replaced, we will then be ready to strip everything back and start from scratch.
I’ve been having a look round the internet for some living room colour schemes because when it comes to putting colours together I am a bit useless really so I always look online for inspiration. I am totally in love with this hot pink look (below) but not too sure if I could convince my other half.
We have an old Victorian house and he likes oldie worldy and I am really into minimalistic and contemporary so yeh we never really agree on a great deal; so things just don’t get done as one of us (usually me) ends up going off in a huff because we don’t get our own way 😉 Things have been going on like this since we moved here 9 years ago but enough is enough now as things really need doing. I will get my beautiful oak floor though, that is something I will stand my ground with.
We also need a gorgeous light fitting as we have just got a bulb hanging at the moment, that has been hanging there ever since we moved in and our intention was to get one straight away but we never found one that we really liked. Our living room is quite dark so we really want something to light it up, I really love these…
It’s not going to be a cheap or quick job but I am very excited and know that we will have such a beautiful house once everything is done and 2016 is the year that it is going to happen, so watch this space!
