I’m far too excited about designing my living room.
I posted a blog post earlier today about how we can’t live without technology. The post has a mood board to go with it, and now it’s got me thinking about designing my living room. So that’s what this post is about.
I didn’t think that I would be very good at interior design. I can be indecisive and fussy, and it takes me forever to reach a decision. However, with designing my house, I’ve been making good decisions, fast.
I love my bathroom tiles which were completed last week. I love my kitchen tiles, which are in the process of going up. The colour I have chosen for the living room is absolutely lovely (not that I’m bragging or anything…but I am).
Every decision I’ve made so far seems to be right (touch wood!). The only decision that wasn’t right was the carpet I picked for the living room, but I changed my mind in plenty of time.
I’ve really surprised myself, and I can ‘see’ how I want things to be. Even down to the position of the spotlights, and which way the wooden flooring should go.
Sometimes, grey can feel a bit cold. The paint I chose is grey with a slight brown tinge to it, so it feels a lot warmer.
The living room is very bright because it’s an open space with a large window at the front. However, I would like to add some colour somehow. Though I haven’t thought this far ahead.
Some green would be nice to go with the brown and give it a natural, earthy feel. We bought a brand new sofa and armchair to go in the living room. Though they’re currently sat in our garage whilst we wait for the carpet to be fitted.
If you were redecorating, what would your choice of colour be? I’d love to hear from you!
