My living room

My heart belongs in my living room

I love my living room. Usually it’s the kitchen that usually gets the honour of being the heart of any home but for me my living room is where it’s at. Sprawled on the sofa wrapped in Designer’s Guild blanket, or sitting on the rug doing a puzzle with Poppet, its the living room I gravitate to as soon as the day’s work is done. It’s where I’m sitting typing this post right now, and where I was earlier snuggling up with Poppet before she went to bed. It sees all of the action in our home. One of my first posts on this blog was my living room mood board. We hadn’t moved in yet, and I had started to piece together a vision of what my living room would look like. Some of my pieces I had for years, other were new and the mood board helped me see how it would all work together. Now you can see how it all came together in the picture above. Not bad hey?

I’ve recently organised my hallway – the first area of our new home to get ‘done’ and I’m pretty proud of what I’ve achieved. The fact I’ve done it with a little bit of help from Ikea, after promising to only furnish my new place with vintage finds, is beside the point. Lets gloss over that for now. I love my new hallway – vintage finds or not.
