Like I said earlier in the week, as we near the end of renovating the kitchen our thoughts are starting to turn to the living room – but I’m running a little short on inspiration.
I guess it’s normal, when you’re renovating room after room, to become more stumped for ideas or get a bit tired of interior design.
But the living room is going to be one of the most used and seen rooms in the house, so it’s important to me that I like it. It might be one of those places that we develop then add to as we go along. Another restricting factor is that we can’t really afford or justify replacing our two three seater sofas, so the décor has to fit in with their brown leather.
So a textured, neutral base is likely to be the way forward for us, perhaps with added splashes of colour later on.
Recently George at Asda asked me to pick out a few favourites from their current collection. As I was making my choices, it struck me that autumn is a great time to be focusing on the lounge. It’s just the best place in the house to get wrapped up as the nights draw in and temperature drops, and maybe even (*whisper it*) start to feel a little festive. So I went for cosy greys and browns, and lighting that gives off a warm glow.
Kitchens don’t come cheap, so if we can save a bit of cash kitting out the living room, all the better. And my George wish list starts at just £4! Not much more than a couple of bags of apples.
