OMG it’s pretty much November, and I am wondering where on earth the Summer went!
We are hosting Christmas this year, and have plans for updating the kids’ lounge (mainly because they aren’t kids anymore!) and I was fairly complacent about it all, having picked a new floor. (Excellent, sit back, relax) Until now, that is! And if it’s November that means Christmas is next month NEXT MONTH omg and we haven’t even BOOKED the floor guys to lay the floor! (let alone book the Christmas food delivery slot!! Are they even out yet? NO? ok, calm)
Anyway, we want to add a woodturning stove, which will result in all sorts of shenanigans, cement, a new hearth, liners and a flue pipe… all sorts (MESS. The MESS. Brace! Brace!)
And if we ever get round to picking a new sofa, it most probably won’t arrive until January! GAHHH. That’s the thing with sofas… humming and haaaaing online, Pinterest boards coming out of my ears, and a nagging feeling that we really ought to go and sit on some in a show room, but really CBA! I order most things online but is ordering a sofa online and without seeing it, a bridge too far?! I do have some swatches coming…is that enough to go on?!
Anyway, we have picked a fab herringbone floor (and that was a bit of a faff as we have underfloor heating) I don’t have a link for it, but I’ll show you when it is going down.
I thought I would share a few ideas with you and I am interested to hear your ideas too. Espesh if you are redecorating a room in time for Christmas!
The easiest bit of all was ordering the Rug of Instagram Dreams (40% off in the sale, who could resist, and besides if it’s been okayed by some IG Interior Queens, who am I to argue!)
Next up – totally swooning over LOAF SOFAS
I am LOVING the #styleitdark hashtag as a source of interior inspo, and I am also really inspired by some of the lovely images on Pinterest
Also, have you noticed how the accent metals of choice have switched from chrome, to brushed copper?
What do we all think about curtains? Do you have any recommendations on ready mades? A fab curtain lady up your sleeve you’d share with me? I always struggle with dressing the windows as our room has triple aspect and French doors. All ideas gratefully received!
Coffee tables and side tables… literally have me cruising the internet for HOURS
This one is the Hiba Solid wood coffee table and it’s currently £109 – but take 40% off in the sale! I love it’s simplicity and clean lines, and the fact that you can store stuff underneath! Check out that lovely dark wall too.
Crumbs we could be here all night!!
Me and my musings will sign off for now, but I would really love to hear any recommendations for sofas, curtains & anything else you think I need to know!
In the meantime, I can sleep easy that the rug is on it’s way and it was a no brainer as I trust everyone else to have picked a good one. Using Instagram as a ‘rug filter’ is that even a thing? Yes I believe it is!
Anyway – as ever, thanks for reading and thankyou in advance for any pearls of wisdom!
Ps at the time of writing, La Redoute has 40% off using the code BIG40 (too good to miss!)
