Now that everyones kids are back to school and im waiting to go back to uni the calm before the storm is the perfect time to do the home decor, as thoughts of xmas is coming echo through my mind there is only two of us and hardly anyone visits but on our small budget we do like to keep the house clean and as my asthma has been suffering for months we decided to keep the dogs out of the lounge as much as possible and hope it helped so far so good I have seen an improvement.
We were going to buy a new sofa but after looking around for a few weeks and not finding one we liked as much as our current one. coupled with the thought of having to pop the window to get it out we thought it best to integrate it and we are so glad we did as it gives the room a pop of colour.
The wallpaper we chose is from Arthouse. The main wall is Flower Garden Monochrome. A vintage floral design but so pretty with the addition of some small insects, and butterflies., and a hint of glitter. For the surround walls again we chose an Arthouse paper but a lightly textured dark grey with a hint of glitter. Despite going darker in theme the red makes the room stand out and brighter. We opted for a lush grey carpet and black rug from ikea, couple with a smart but functional space saving dining room table, instead of a lounge diner which we disliked having to dance around a table and chairs we now have a spacious lounge.
As a first attempt at upcycling we found a small coffee table on Shpock which is vintage aka 1970’s which i gave a spray of Silver paint and its a perfect fit for next to the lamp and to pull out and use without cluttering the room.
