There has always one room in our house that we’ve always struggled with, and its a pretty well used one too by all the family. Our living room is also our dining room and my home office too!
A couple of years ago we invested a large corner sofa which fills up two walls of the living room space but also frames our living room space perfectly. It has given us a proper area to relax and as it’s big enough to fit us all on comfortably. It was the best decision we’ve made for this whole house renovation I think! This item is the one thing that will be staying and working around it but as it’s grey its such a neutral colour I can put pretty much any colour with it.
When we moved into this house it needed renovating throughout and we tried to work the decor around the furniture items we already had. We had cream and dark wood large furniture pieces so I picked a floor that worked well with this to save money. I then won a competition with a furniture brand and was able to purchase some really good quality oak furniture which I love, however, the flooring doesn’t work at all with the furniture and this would be the first big change. I have been looking into investing in some good quality grey laminate flooring which would be hard wearing and neutral enough to work with all the different colours, including the furniture choices in my living room.
Moving onto decor colours I would love to have pink in our living room, I’m not sure I have my husband on board yet though but I think it works lovely with both gold and grey which are the colours I already have within the room.
I have been looking out for some lovely pieces and there are some brilliant online shops that have such unusual items but ones that work with my current pieces and complimenting the sofa and light flooring.
