To keep up with my new flat obsession. Take a look at my previous posts:
I’m moving through the house by room, I’m currently trying to perfect the living room. No room is completely sorted yet, but getting there. I’ve been looking at various things online, hoping to get some inspiration.
My flat is furnished already with a two seater sofa. It’s not amazing, but it’s okay for now. If I bought this flat, I’d look into getting a new one to base the decor around.
I hopped over to Fish Pools to look at their sofas. I really would LOVE to get a corner sofa, but that wouldn’t work in my current set up. I love fabric sofas, not only for ethical reasons, but I hate how leather sofas can get freezing in the winter, but you can stick to them in the summer. FABRIC ALL THE WAY. Luckily Fish Pools have a category separating this for me, so I went over to the fabric section and had a browse.
I’m loving the type that have a few cushions across the back rather than 2 or 3 big back cushions. This is one I’d love to pick out for myself:
With the sofa picked, it’s time to look for other things.
A rug, a coffee table, lamps, ornaments. Wall art.
I know where I’m going for the wall art. Straight to my friend DorkFaces’s Etsy shop. I know she has some new black and white prints. I have just bought some colour prints from her, but I’ll save them for a different post. I’m also loving the prints from Tarnya’s shop lately, she has some amazing Disney and Harry Potter watercolours.
I’d have them in a row of three with Jemma’s black and white prints at the end and Tarnya’s colourful mermaid print in the middle like this:
Next for lamps, I did go to Zara Home, but it was very disappointing, so I went to the lighting section of House of Fraser and I can’t pick between these three:
Either way, it would be 2 lamps on either side of the sofa. Ohhh.
The rugs from Zara home, on the other hand, are SPOT ON. Here’s the three I can’t pick between, help.
I’m going to end this there, although I could spend hours going into more detail and looking for frames, coffee tables, coasters, TV stands, mirrors, door nobs and more, haha.
How would you style your living room?
