Designing our living room

Our house is currently on the market and we have a plot reserved at a local new build project near us. This is exciting and scary in equal measures, but one of the things I am looking forward to the most is being able to design our home from scratch – choosing the flooring, decoration, colours and finishing touches. I can’t wait to put the key in the door of our new home knowing that it will be exactly as we want it to be. and we won’t need to do any decorating or touching up.

Of course we will need to provide the furniture, and one of the things I am planning to buy is a brand new sofa. It’s such an integral part of the living room, and somewhere we will all sit together as a family, talking about our day and making plans for the weeks ahead. I have a pretty clear idea of what I am after. I want a large, family sized corner sofa as I think it will fit perfectly into our new room. I want leather as it is comfortable and easy to clean. I want it to be a little bit different too – maybe not the usual black or cream – how about a splash of red?! I have been looking on Sofa Club for ideas – they have the widest range I have found so far, with something to suit every home and style.

I also want to brighten up the room with little bits and pieces here and there, as the decor will be quite neutral. I want a bright, funky rug for the laminate floor, some lovely squidgy cushions for the new sofa, a picture wall to display some of our favourite family snaps, displayed in frames of different shapes and sizes. I also really, REALLY want some clever storage for all the DVD’s, CD’s and computer games that we have – might need a trip to Ikea for some inspiration on that one! 

What does your living room look like? I would love to see some pictures, or for you to share some of your ideas that you have implemented in your home!
