[AD] Putting The Finishing Touches To Our Living Room

This post is sponsored by Soho Home.

I promise (to myself more than anyone else) that sometime soon I will do a living room transformation post, but there are still a couple of things that need finishing off and tweaking so in the meantime I thought I'd write about the things we've done to really make it feel homely, like our living room. 

I won't lie, I've grown quite tired of the renovation process; the relentless wallpaper stripping, floor sanding, painting etc etc, but what I do love is putting a room back together. I love choosing furniture, deciding what pictures to have on the wall, filling a room with rugs and sofa cushions

So that's what I'm going to document in this post; the finishing touches that I've loved taking time over, that add a bit of our personalities to the room and that make it an enjoyable place to spend time in.

S O F A  |   We decided on a corner sofa for the cosy factor and I'm so glad we did because I can basically make myself a warm little nest in the corner and binge watch TV. Pretty perfect winter situation amiright? I love adding cushions and throws to our sofa so we have rather a lot of them (enough for me to have a fair few guests over and allocate each of them their own throw #perfecthostess). I love how cushions and throws add colour to an otherwise neutral sofa and that they give the flexibility to add new colours into the room whenever you wish!

P R I N T  W A L L  |  I've written before about our print wall, which I spent rather a long time on, but I absolutely adore it. Because we didn't rush into choosing prints and other elements to put up, it feels really curated and special. I'm so pleased we decided to diversify it and include a mirror, clock and a hanging plant rather than just prints as it feels so thought out. I'm super happy with it.



R U G S  |  Having laminate floor in the living room means it looked (and felt) a little cold when we first put it down. We came up with the idea of having lots of different rugs in the room to add a bit of colour, texture and much needed warmth! I love the look of them layered and we're still adding to the collection! 

F U R N I T U R E  | I am very lucky that I have a clever husband who made our furniture for the living room, meaning that we didn't have to spend a lot of money on two tables and a TV stand that look amazing. We went for a lot of wood in the living room and it's quite a dark room to make it feel cosy so the wooden tables match the aesthetic perfectly. I'm very into mismatched furniture because I don't like things to look too uniform so they're all slightly different woods and we (I say we, I mean Nick) added a touch of grey paint to the TV stand to match the grey of the sofa. 

What are your favourite finishing touches to your living room?

  5. Ooh, fabulous choice of sofa! I'm always won over by the super perfect, upright and velvet sofas... but everyone knows a corner squidgy sofa is SO much more comfortable to lounge around on in the evenings haha. Perfect! :)
