Anyone else looking around their homes thinking "Ugh this room soooo needs a makeover"?
I have been for quite some time. As much as I love the grey in my house (we painted grey in nearly every room back in 2007 when we moved in), I do feel it needs a bit of oomph.
I never did finish each room completely how I wanted it to look because we were in so much of a rush to get it all done and then once we'd painted that final bit of wall we haven't done much since. It's time to give my house a bit of a much needed makeover and I have been searching for paint and wallpaper for the last month.
Again, I am going for grey but this time we are using the brand Little Greene paint which is the perfect grey for us. We have ordered some new wallpapers which I cannot wait to see when they go up. But me, I am always one step ahead and started to look at pieces to give a bit of POP in my home and not allow the grey to depress me again.
Here's a few neat ideas which I love:
Firstly I may go for non-matching sofa and chairs which will certainly bring a lot of bold colour to a living room.
|John Lewis sofa in Oslo apple colour, £750|
|Ritchie armchair from Made.com £349|
Then why not have colourful tables and dining chairs too…..
|Amorphous nesting tables from Anthropologie £498|
|Oslo oak furniture from Bentley Designs|
|Genevieve side table in yellow at Urban Outfitters, £120|
Add some colour to the walls with these fab features:
|Pack of seven picture frame stickers from Not On The High Street £28|
|Round square mirror, Made In Design £54.40|
|Juju hat feather wall hanging, ROCKETT ST GEORGE £195|
Love adding those finishing touches with something quirky….
|Linea pineapple table lamp House of Fraser, was £40 now £28|
|Colin's hot best friend, Bitten £50|
|Eliptical clock from Dutch By Design, £9.95|
As much as I am probably going to be snapping up some brand new items I think I shall scour the antique shops and markets for something quirky to add a bit of interest to my home.
I cannot wait to go shopping!!
