We don't have a dvd player etc in this room so it seemed like a waste to have a TV unit., yet it felt too incomplete to just have the TV. We added a long shelf which finished it off without making the room feel smaller. I like the wall behind TV to be a dark colour, this paint colour, Dulux 'Deep Ocean', looks like a really deep Navy in the evening.
Added: 28th March - Plant holder, wire basket & cushion
Finding large artworks is hard, it took me many months to find something i liked. Every large painting I found had either red or orange when I wanted nice cool colours. I then came across this piece on etsy by an artist named Elena. It arrived rolled up and I had it stretched locally. Id love another piece of Elena's artwork, I actually have my eye on one now.
Choosing cushions when you want a mix of colours and textures is hard. I really struggled. I think best way is to buy them all at the same time. What I did was open up a word document and then copy & paste image of cushions I liked onto the document. I then sat back and deleted the ones that didn't look right. In the end I narrowed it down to my selections. I would really recommend doing it this way if you also find choosing cushions hard. If I tried to stand in a store choosing I think I would be in there for hours.
Most cushions are from Adairs, the yellow ones are from Freedom.
