One thing that a lot of people ask for is a Flat tour. Although I don’t feel comfortable exposing every corner and cupboard of my house, what I do love to share is any thought or ideas that I had when setting up my home.
Moving into an empty space can feel a bit daunting, as well as buying furniture for the first time. I never knew what sort of style to go for but what I did know, is that when it came to my living room, I wanted it to feel cosy but have pops of colour.
I am a massive fan of yellow (and mustard yellow) with shades of grey so I knew I wanted something along those lines. I know that you can get really artsy sofas that look beautiful, but I always know full well I won’t be cosying up on one as they are more likely to be a lot more sturdy. This sofa however, is my DREAM SOFA. Just trust me when I tell you that it’s the comfiest thing i’ve ever watched television on. I also decided to add some purple into the mix as it broke the colours up a bit more and just found cushions and bits and pieces as I went along.
One thing I did want to point out was the yellow floor lamp, I love this so much and to accompany it I bought a light bulb that wasn’t your stereotypical round bulb as I felt this added a little bit more to it. It’s amazing what a lightbulb can do!
Anyway, I don’t want to do this post in order to tell you where everything is from as some are gifts, some were bought with vouchers from friends and family and others were bought in little shops in the lanes, all I want to do is give you a little living room inspiration if you’re looking for any right now. Plus, I think the photos do all the talking in this instance.
It might not be to everyone’s cup of tea, but I really love my little cosy corner and I also LOVE seeing what other people have done with their houses too.
