So it may not have been long ago that I actually posted my Living Room, before and after blog post but it was actually last decorated back in 2011, when quite frankly I didn’t even know what a blog was.
I do love my lounge still but one, its gotten a little tired and two, I’ve got itchy decorating feet now the house renovation work is pretty much finished.
(On a side note here, I really am blogging in the most odd order?! I still haven’t blogged about the newly renovated kitchen or done before and afters for the whole of the upstairs plus I’ve just done a mini makeover on the spare room but have I blogged about that?! Of course not. I’m clearly a useless blogger)
Anyway, i’ve been thinking about giving the lounge a fresh look for a while now, saving oh so many photos that have been popping up on my Instagram feed and since i’ve not got off ma butt and actually decorated the damn room, I thought I would share my ideas with you lovely lot!
So this is the current living room…
I don’t really want to mess around with the set up to much, after far to many years of renovating i’m really liking the idea of a lick of paint and NO DUST. The fireplace will be staying, no matter how tempted I am to swap out the tiles, the bookcases are staying put, (and white) and at this point in time I can’t bear to part with my sexy sofas no matter how uncomfortable they may be!
I’m so, so, so in love with all things Scandi when it comes to interior design and I really would love our lounge to look perfectly Scandinavian, however, I know what i’m like and unfortunately I just can’t see me being able to pull it off.
So with that in mind i’m going to call the look for our living room as being Samdi-style. I can’t see it catching on but hey-ho, hopefully it will be feel home…
