Living Room Mood Board

The stunning Jonna rocker armchair from John Lewis

I decided a little interior design mood board was in order as I am soon to be getting my living room back as an adult space.

After much deliberation we have decided to relocate the twins computers to their bedroom when their bedroom makeover is finished.  I have spent far too much time this weekend planning how my new, adult living space will look.    Looking for inspiration by hopping from one website to another can be very time consuming so when I discovered who share lots of companies items on one site, it was perfect.

white ideas for living room makeover

I created a little mood board with some of my favourite pieces.  All the items above can be found on through Lionshome.   Although I currently have a lot of blue and white in the living room I am feeling the pull back to an all white room.  The focus of the living room at the moment is the large painting over the fireplace by local Cornish artist Glyn Macey, which is beautiful and one of my favourite pieces of the art we own, so that may stay and just replace the old blue curtains with white linen.  The blue and white striped sofa has removable covers and the company that it came from has the perfect pale linen replacement for less that £150 which will be a lovely alternative.


I might just stay with blue and white …….

oh decisions, decisions.

A home by the sea

    What an exciting time, the moment when you reclaim your living space! I always find it hard to decide on colours when it's your own space, it can be a challenge to Hone in on one particular style/colour palette. Blue and white is an all time classic and so if you do opt for white walls and a white sofa, it can be easy to change up your accessories. I'm loving the decorative blue lamp! Enjoy your new space 🙂

    Love the look of the rocker armchair. Sounds like a good idea to reclaim your space and banish the computers upstairs. I'm a fan of the blue and white, but I'm sure whatever you do, it will look great.

    Same as Pippa, I always find it much harder to decide on things for my own home. I like the white moodboard. Maybe just a couple of blue accessories to tie in with the painting. Oh, the decisions. x

    I'm a nightmare when it comes to deciding on things for my own home. But your mood boards are great. I love blue and white but that first selection of products is just so lovely. It must be such a relief to get your livingroom back. I hope you enjoy getting the space just how you want it.

I'd love your comment
