I know it seems like I just threw a load of words in the title, but we’re renovating our dining room/ second reception room at the moment and I was at a loss as to what colours or theme I wanted. It was all a bit overwhelming actually. Then when I was chatting to my close creative friend, we came up with green, pink, grey and copper/gold. I have copper tones in my kitchen so this would flow nicely. I’m really into all things Botanical at the moment, it’s very on trend. My Granny always had lots of indoor plants, and while I’d love that, I have a habit of killing them! So fake plants, botanical prints and accessories will be how I bring the outside in and add a touch of nature. We’re going for plain furniture and solid colour curtains, so I will brighten things up with accessories that can be changed in the future if I want to. I’ve added a few bits to my Pinterest board for DIY and Home, like this one which really spoke to me:
Then I made a list on LinkDeli of all the pieces, colours and more that are inspiring me (and that I want to buy!), and a mood board which I turned into the pin for this post. If you love the colours like me, you’ll really enjoy this list.
For more home inspiration check out Lionshome who I used to search and source for home wares on my theme. I can’t wait to put all the finishing touches in place and get the furniture in. We are going to get a grey sofa and Ikea storage for the walls and the TV unit in base colours so I can go bold with accessories. The curtains will be an olive/ sage green. I know there will be toys and smelly boys playing computer games in there but some of the time it will be me and a book and peace and quiet. Here’s to that 5 minutes when it happens!
Pin it for later:
