I love our lounge it is so cosy but at the moment it is so plain. The walls are just magnolia and it needs some excitement/ brightening up. I have so many plans for the lounge I want it to be contemporary but still warm and cosy. We have a real coal fire so it really is a beautiful room.
We have bought black , gold and grey accessories. We love the geometric style and that is our theme for the accessories in the room. I like the idea of those patterns mixed with warm and chunky throws.
The room is lovely and big , it is also bright and airy as it has the high ceilings and a lot of light coming through.I would love to make that wall with the fire stand out a bit more and really make it a feature wall.
I was browsing online and came across a fabulous reclaimed brick slips which I think would make the best feature. I really like the old graphite brick slips , they will fit in perfectly with the geometric theme and colour scheme. It will really make the fire stand out and look fabulous with the dining room table and chairs.
I love the way the reclaimed bricks look , especially around a fire as it gives it that vintage feel but also contemporary and that’s what I love about them. They have a few different effects and I cold see me having them in the dining room too as we have a feature wall there too.
There are other bits I want to get for the room including some prints , I have seen some fabulous framed prints with motivational quotes and also some cool simple picture prints and brightly coloured ones to be dotted around which I think would fit in perfectly.
I also need to find a rug for the lounge as the little ones like playing on the rug in there that we have at the moment. I would like something in theme and bold. A geometric design would fit in fab too. I am also on the lookout for some good quality accessories. I can’t wait to add all of these things and really transform the lounge.
I can’t wait to update this area and really put our stamp on it. I am really getting a taste for home design and interiors now and there are so many gorgeous collections at the moment. What is your favourite theme at the moment?
