2017 is a big year for us. My youngest sisters 18th Birthday WEEK (yes, week), my middle sister’s wedding and Joe’s 30th. To top that off we are moving house later on this year. It’s time for a fresh start. I’m a bit sad to be leaving our current home, but excited about the new space. We’ll be doing a lot of redecorating and our current furniture just doesn’t fit the space.
At the moment we are thinking light grey walls and white floorboards, I know, such a blogger cliché! We want to try and keep it cosy, but not cluttered, which means storage is a must. Having a coffee table with deep drawers in it is so beneficial, they would be perfect for storing giant blankets, books or DVDs.
This sofa is the sort of style that I like, maybe not quite so boxy, I like the Chesterfield style back, teamed with this luxurious looking bottle green velvet cushion. I’ve hated bottle green since my horrendous school uniform. But greens and greys work well together and can be swapped out for different shades for the summer months.
Another change will be accessories and fittings, I am usually quite anti-gold. I don’t wear gold, I’m much more of a silver or rose gold person, but I am really drawn to this geometric style pendant light. I’ve also taken a step away from black, choosing the white version of these marble book ends, I love that you can order different heights within the set.
As an homage to my Iranian roots, I’ve chosen this map of Persia and Afghanistan, I think it will make a lovely focal point in the lounge, and add a touch of colour.
