New Home: The Living Room

Scandinavian Wall Art from Desenio

I have been in my home for several months now, it really has flown, but at the same time it's been non stop. There is always something that has needed to be done, but at least now most of it is sorted. Everything has been moved in, and everything has it's place, which means now I can focus more on getting the house looking the way that I want it. 

The living room is a room where we spend a lot of our time. It is where I have set my office space and also were we relax at the end of the school/working day. At this moment in time, I haven't really done much with this space in terms of decorating, as it's a new build home, I wanted to give the building chance to settle down before I get to creative with wallpapers and paints. 

I have finally started getting the room the way I want it, I have my Scandinavian Wall Art from Desenio - I adore these prints because they are quotes and images that really resonate with me. They fill that big space perfectly and I love that they have such a big impact on the room.

I have tried to give the room a modern vintage feel, and I picked this shabby chic corner unit up on a local Facebook Selling site, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. 




What I really want to do now is pick up a large mirror to rest on the wall behind the television, I have been looking at the Adagio Large Wall Mirror from Fishpools.

It is such a large space, and it definitely needs something large to fill a large portion of that available wall space. I like the idea of having a mirror there because it will make the room feel that much more open by reflecting the opposite wall.

I have recently upgraded our television (not the one pictured above), as the one that we previously had sitting there looked too small in the grand scheme of things, and was almost 10 years old. It was something that I had to wait to do as there was so much that I needed to do before I could even think about spending money on a luxury item such as this.



I am currently looking at sofas over on Fishpools, we have a lovely second hand sofa at the moment, but one day I would absolutely love to treat myself to a new sofas suite. This Fishpools Fabric Corner Sofas would be absolutely perfect. 



As I said above, I have my desk unit sits in the corner. This desk was originally my Granddad's, but as he moved into a care home last year, it was looking or a new home. I love this desk, it's so oldy worldy and it was nice to be able to keep it within the family. I know that this is something my Granddad would be pleased about.

There is still so much I want to do with this room, but it is going to be a while until I can get it decorated, for the time being though, I do like my living room space.
