Finishing Touches: The Living Room

Designing the interior of my home has been an amazing experience. I've always been interested in interior design from a young age so actually being able to put that into practice has definitely been an experience to remember. The process is still very much ongoing, but I can finally say that this part of the living room is finished. The fireplace is my favourite part of the room, the white marble effect just instantly stands out as you walk into the room so I wanted it to stand out even more so by colouring the feature wall behind it teal, and leaving all other walls in the room white.

We picked up the floating shelves from IKEA a couple of months ago, and i'll be honest I struggled to find ornaments I actually liked to go on them until a couple of weeks ago. The teal candle, photo frames, cactus' and fake plant are all also from IKEA, the bronze cable car I picked up whilst on holiday in San Francisco. and the bronze rabbit ornaments (£8) are from the George home range. The fireplace is home to the beautiful chrome and glass lantern which I actually picked up before we moved in from Matalan (£10) because I simply got too impatient and had to buy it (story of my life really!). The final finishing touch was the mirror with the grey wood frame from Amazon which fits in perfectly with the two grey wooden tripod lamps which are also placed in the living room just out of sight. Overall i'd say i'm pretty darn happy with how it's all looking at the moment, there is still lots to do in the rest of the house but i'm sure I will be back posting again with more updates once they're finished.
