Interior design: My living room and some home decor inspiration

Hi everyone.

In my opinion living room is the most important part of every house. When I was a teenager I classified my bedroom as my living space :) but as an adult/wife/mum I definitely spend most of my time in the living room and it is really important to make it a space you really love and feel comfortable in. We changed the decor of our living room three times already and we've only been staying in this house for one and a half years. At the moment, we have one big corner sofa, a matching swivel chair and footstool , a tall TV unit, coffee tables and some baskets. I am quite happy with the current look, but my husband wants to get a long, low unit and put the TV on the wall to save space. He has been talking about it for months, because he hates the one we bought. We will see how it goes and I will add a new post, if we decide to change the interior again. The TV unit and coffee tables we bought are meant to look like walnut furniture but they are just an imitation. I hope we will be able to get solid wooden furniture soon and I will definitely consider  Lucce designs from interior addict.
The website offers a wide selection of furniture,  contemporary floor lamps , designer sofas , sofa beds  and everything else an interior addict needs :)  You can see some of the beautiful designs on the pictures below. I am in love with a combination of walnut furniture and green accents. It looks lovely. 
If I had to choose a sofa again, I would definitely go for dark grey or dark brown and it would have to be a sofa bed.
It is such a great idea, especially if you don't have a guest bedroom.

Here is a sneak peek of my living room. I hope you like it.

  2. Oooh you're living room is lovely, I can't wait to have my own home where I can do what I want to it, already started a little scrapbook full of pictures that I love!! xx

  3. I love it :) Your lounge looks so lovely! I really need a new sofa, ours is so uncomfortable!

  4. Looks lovely i really like your flooring im currently thinking about getting the same kind as we have chocolate carpets which are nice but with a toddler, cat and dog it's a nightmare to keep spotless. Did you do the flooring yourself or was it already like that when you moved in? xx

    1. The flooring was already like that when we moved in. We got a big rug when my baby boy started crawling and walking, because he was sliding too much on the floor :) I hated the rug though, so as soon as Zac mastered walking and running, we got rid of the rug.

      It is not real wood btw, but it looks nice and is so easy to clean. xo

  5. Wow i love that circular armchair/sofa, looks cosy :)
