I secretly started plotting my living room makeover last year. I started with comments about how the sofas were looking tired and it went from there! Lee was hesitant at first as the one sofa was also a sofa bed which he believed would be an inconvenience to not have anymore. Yet I got my way here is My living room makeover and how to hang wallpaper.
Then at Christmas Lee needed to sleep on the sofa bed whilst I was with a poorly Erin and suddenly he realised that the sofa bed was not as comfy as he thought. It had served us well and was ok for one person to sleep on but not for two and therefore we didn’t really need it. I was a very happy Emma! Then the makeover speeded up. We decided on a grey and lilac colour scheme but the fab Jen from Love Chic Living encouraged me to be braver with colour and then when I spotted a new range in Next I was smitten straight away. After showing Lee and he actually agreed with me I headed back to Next and armed up with wallpaper, cushions, curtains and home accessories. I basically shopped the range knowing that it would look fab together. Even I couldn’t go wrong if I just bought the whole look!
Once the sofa’s were in which were from DFS, we pulled everything together. My dad did the wallpapering and here you can see the results! I still owe him a Sunday Lunch which was his payment terms!
I love love love it! It is just what I wanted and the room seems bigger and brighter. The wall art was done on a budget and I actually got a bit creative with it. I wrote about it over at Mums savvy savings I did buy the large print from Debenhams as it matched the colours so well. I plan on looking for some more wall art and adding to it as I see things.
