I’ve been a bit fed up with my lounge for ages. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a lovely room, but I’ve fancied a bit of a change for a while. The room itself is (deliberately) a bit of a blank canvas. White walls to maximise incoming light, oak flooring, brown leather furniture, and large cream rug. For around five years now, I’ve had a red and gold colour scheme, with cushions, candles, vases throws etc all in various tones of these colours. But my cushions had started falling apart and, quite frankly, I was just bored with the colour scheme.
So I took myself off to Matalan, spent just under £100, and gave my room a whole new colour scheme in lovely fresh spring colours – I am so pleased with it. Here are a couple of pics (though I have to say, they don’t do it justice – perhaps I should ask Ashley for some tips on how to photograph a room to its full potential – he should know, after all he is an estate agent!)
