New House: Living Room

Hi guys,

So we have now fully decorated the living room and I have done it in a nautical style. Before, the room had a very bold floral print and that is just not our style at all. Our last living room felt quite cold as we had a lot of grey and black colours so we didn't want to transfer those over.

As you can see, the doggies like to look out of the window. They love that the chair is positioned in front of the venetians. Luna is the worst for it - she is super nosy and loves it when she gets to bark at anyone running past. Unfortunately for Luna, it is so quiet where we live that she only gets the occasional cat or seagull!

The furniture is Corona which is from British Heart Foundation. The company gets lots of new goods in and we got a great deal on a whole set. The sailing boat dog bed is from Poundstretcher. The boat is from The Range and the two glass rope jars were a gift from a friend!

I adore this paper. We hung it horizontally rather than vertical and it looks so much better. We got this from the papermill in Hartlepool - they sell online!

The small jute jars on the TV stand are from Dunelm Mill and the wall art is from The Range.

The large jars pictured here were an absolute bargain from B&M bargains. The large jars are so cute with the jute detail to the bottom. I have large pillar candles inside which when lit, provide a beautiful glow. The lighthouse ornament is from The Range and matches the boat perfectly. We also got these cute little pebble tealight holders and the starfish pile from The Range. The coasters are B&M. 

I adore these Glade electrical wax melts. You can buy wax melts all over now and these cost only about £4 from Wilkinsons. 

Pictured is some more of the Corona furniture - all available from the British Heart Foundation furniture store. It feels good to have bargain furniture supporting an amazing charity. Also, this furniture is amazing for upcycling so if you can't find anything in a good colour, you can buy some of this furniture and pastel chalk paint it.

The vintage, distressed wall stars are from The Range. The colours are absolutely amazing and it looks so good with the other furniture. They are a real stand out piece in the room.

Cushions were so easy to find and we got them at The Range and Dunelm Mill. Nautical is so in fashion at the moment so there are great pieces everywhere.

On the coffee table is a tray that I have had for a while. This is great for when having tea or just as some tidy storage. This driftwood candle holder was bought as a gift from Whitby by my parents-in-law. It is REAL driftwood. I am going to go to the same place soon to pick up a mirror too!

  1. Looks great

  2. Amazing :)

  3. Your living room looks amazing! I can't believe that your furniture was from the British Heart Foundation shop as it looks so high end and expensive!

    1. Thank you. I know, we got half of it a couple of years ago and then the rest when we moved! So chunky!
