Last week ended in a flurry so I missed the update on the not spending post and haven’t even done the ‘reward weekend’ post! Sorry!! But we finished the living room this weekend and I think that’s a much nicer update!
As mentioned above the last two days of that week went pretty much in a flurry, and over the weekend we laid down the new living flooring which means I can finally post the very first room reveal in our new home!!
We bought the flat two months ago, it was empty, we had no furniture and worst all the walls were painted yellow. So, first things first, of course, it all got painted white. Well, aside from the spare bedroom whose first coat of white was done today – but this is for another time.
The living room. I imposed a budget on this one because at some point the sofas we were looking for were white and around a thousand pounds, which for someone who has baby kittens is just stupid. They. Claw. EVERYTHING.
So, aside from the TV we imposed a £500 budget to get it done and here it is:
To those who know me the feature wall colour is no surprise – I love purple! We tried to keep everything else pretty simple, and each room has a different colour feature wall. Last week when we went to buy the screws for my dressing table we saw this lovely floor on sale and the boyfriend spent the whole Saturday putting it on so I thought it was only nice to recognize that here! Although I helped do half of it, he was literally the force behind it all, as I could not slide them into place at all, no matter how hard I tried they would not budge…
We still haven’t decided what curtains to put on as we need one that goes with the grey sofa and purple wall, (if you see one, please let me know?).
The furniture is from my favourite place IKEA and they had lovely things to put on top of it, but we’ve also had to keep the stuff on top of the furniture to a minimum, as this is what happens when flowers get put on the table:
Cute you say?! Yes… Right until Leo figures out that the glass moves and paws at it until I either take him off the table of he throws it off it…
Anyway, I hope you like the living room it was done up with love!
