Now that spring has officially sprung I’m starting to think about our home decor. It would be nice to brighten things up for spring and summer now that the hibernation period is well and truly over. So my first port of call is our living room space.
Don’t get me wrong out living room is a functional and cosy space. It’s quite a big room to be honest but we seemed to have managed to fill the space with a corner sofa and one of those cuddle chair’s. What our living room lacks, however, is a little personality. Since moving into this house over 3 years ago we haven’t added much to the walls, or any real personal touches. The room seems to have been taken over by toys. It’s not just us is it?
So with all that fresh in my mind I am dying to inject a little personality into our room and add some pieces. I think my first thought would be to invest in a coffee table. I genuinely think it will change the whole concept of the room. I need to check out some bespoke Furniture Shops for something a little different but suits our tastes.
How amazing is the light and airy decor in this living room space. It really makes me think of spring and summer. It looks like such a relaxing place, and I think that has so much to do with the color palette choice and furniture chosen.
I think my next thing would be to think about adding some more personal touches to the room. I think this can be achieved by adding some photographs and frames to the walls and window sills. I want the room to engulf family life and so it’s only fitting that pictures of our family are dotted round.
It would be nice to maybe create a portrait wall and really focus on the family captures I have collected over the last few years.
Finally I think I really need to inject a little color into the room. The living space is highly dominated with brown shades so it would be nice to add a bright color to contrast. Perhaps something like yellow or green. I think a great way to add the color would be in the way of cushions and throws.
A brighter color can really give the impression of spring and summer. While the sun is shining through the French doors these things might just be all it takes to make our living room space complete. I love how the above picture is so light and airy. It definitely provides me with some inspiration for our living room space. All the neutral decor with a hint of color to just lift it.
What would you add to make your home ready for spring?
