We are currently gathering all of the supplies necessary to create our new living room. I've been wanting to redecorate for a while but have been putting it off whilst J is so young. You know what sticky fingers are like around wallpaper!
What I've realised whilst scoping out everything that we need and collecting everything up, is that we can pick out the wallpaper, the carpet, the new suite, but the room isn't complete without the accessories - they are in fact what makes the room and finishes it off into the design you pick.
Well we have decided on a grey theme (I say 'we' but I mean 'me'!) which will be our base so we can then accessorise and complete the look that has been in my mind for a while now. Beautiful damask wallpaper will be the focus on the main wall with some stunning white framed pictures and a sideboard for our television.
The rest of the room will be painted grey, with a dark grey carpet and silver shimmer rug. Then the best part comes in, choosing the decor to fit with the base. And if you look around the most beautiful rooms, you'll usually find that the actual room is quite plain. It's the lights, the curtains, the vases and ornaments, candles, everything else that gives it the luxurious touches and makes it stand out.
We have picked out the best eyelet curtains uk that we can find to give the windows that extra bit of luxury, given the lights some Moroccan love with a touch of silver, and finished with some beautiful silver candle holders and some stunning blue vases to give the colour a bit of pop.
