A LIVING ROOM UPDATE

living room update

We redecorated our living room two years ago now, you can see the original blog post here. The room has changed quite a lot since then though. We still have most of the same furniture, sofa, wallpaper etc but have added in a lot of new accessories including cushions, a rug and coffee table. So I thought I would do an updated post as I think the room looks and feels quite different now.

First of all let me just apologise for the dog on the sofa, she was fast asleep and I didn’t have the heart to move her so that I could take photos. Bless her…

One of the main changes to the room is the addition of a rug. We got one from La Redoute that I had been eyeing up for ages and I love how much cosier it’s made the room feel.

We also decided to add a coffee table to the room. We had originally decided against one as we wanted to make the room feel as open and spacious as possible. But you soon realise that you need somewhere to put your cup of tea! This one is from IKEA and is really handy as the top comes off so that you can use the base for storage.

Our ladder shelves aren’t new to the room, but I have added new pictures and accessories to them. I have actually been considering painting these white, or maybe grey. What do you think? Paint them, or leave them as they are?

This is my absolute favourite corner of the room and I am still in love with the furniture two years on. I get lots of questions about the TV unit and console table. We bought them from Littlewoods but unfortunately I don’t think the TV unit is available anymore. I have however linked the console table below, and it’s also available in a gorgeous blush colour.

Here’s a few more snaps of the room along with links to anything that’s still available online…
