Here's what our living room looks like right now. We moved in a little over a month ago and I think it looks okay for the time being but it doesn't feel as homely as it should do with all of our personal added touches like a home should have.
Our previous living room was full of dark colours and was very dull so I knew I wanted this one to be bright and natural looking. I think I have achieved that but still have a way to go. When we viewed the house the living room is what bought it for me as it was so bright and warming. We get much more sunlight in the living room here as it comes round the front of the house around midday and lasts till the sun sets where as at the old house the sun would be on the front of the house in the morning meaning by lunch time the room was dark and lacking any sunlight.
We have stuck with our old sofas for now which are black and leather I just don't think they go with the new living room so will be looking to buy some new ones but for now a good old trusty throw seems to be doing the trick and keeps it looking natural. Andy would love a pair of recliner sofas and I am slowly being converted. I actually saw a gorgeous one at SCS not long ago.
I love how spacious our living room is its the same size as our last one but it just feels so much bigger, and it definitely has something to do with the furnishings as well has having laminated flooring instead of the carpet we had at the old house.
The image above is only one half of the living room from the front of the house so I shall do another post once I have the rest of it finished, you've probably already seen images on here and instagram anyway.
What colour theme do you have (if any) in your living room?
