Since I share my original lounge makeover post, I’ve been tweaking the odd thing here and there but I think I am FINALLY happy with this room. Earlier this year we were able to replace the carpet which has completely transformed this space. We also finished up cycling the sideboard that sits underneath the TV which I am very pleased with. We had the paint colour matched to the navy wall and it looks really lovely.
I always feel like its the way you style a room though which is what really finishes it off. I’m often drawn to very scandi style interiors I find. I just love the simplicity of them and the way they pair lots of monochrome with pops of colour, bold prints and plenty of greenery. The main space I wasn’t happy with in this room was the piece of wall above our corner sofa. It just seemed a bit bare. As we had two large prints on the navy wall and a mirror above the fireplace, I wanted to do something different there.
We toyed with the idea of a little gallery wall but decided we’d probably do that in the dining room instead and use some family photos. I was really keen for some wooden shelves to put prints and plants on but Josh wasn’t really on board. So in the end we settled on some oak picture ledges with some new prints from Desenio on.
I absolutely LOVE how the prints I chose look together and think the oak ties in with the rest of the room perfectly. It’s given the whole room a little refresh and I’m so pleased with this corner now, it’s probably one of my favourite spaces in the whole house! I’m already trying to figure out where I can put more of the beautiful oak ledges. I’m excited to be able to switch the prints about easily too without making extra holes in the wall. I think Josh is also very pleased about that part!
From Left to Right, these are the prints I chose.
‘Lune’ in an Oak Frame
