Last year I wrote a post about my loft conversion plans – you can read it here – and finally our building work will start in the next couple of weeks. I’m equally excited and daunted. Excited because I love the idea of all the planning and designing the room and en-suite, and daunted because I hate the idea of living surrounded by mess and dust.
We moved to our house a bit more than 5 years ago, at the time we had an 11 month old baby and we were adamant we didn’t want a project so we bought a house that was in perfect condition.
The house had been renovated by the previous owners but for some reason they never touched the living room, they just never spent any time in it, so it really was in need of attention.
A few months ago we decided it was time to tackle the room and do all the changes we had been thinking of doing for years. The living room was really not very inviting, it had a modern “hole in the wall ” fireplace and a really old and tatty carpet, it was really in need of a makeover.
We’ve recently had a living room make over, the old living room was tired and tatty and it really needed a bit of a revamp. The living room is now finished (post on that to follow) and we now need to start decorating it.
I wanted to share with you a few of the key decorative pieces we have got for the room so far.
