Next up in my home tour is the living room. The best thing about this room is the fireplace, you have no idea how long I have yearned for a fireplace and mantle. I think there's something so cosy about having a fire as the focus of the room, with the mantle to display loads of cute knick-knacks. The M&P wooden letters were from a craft shop in Hexham but I know you can get them online in lots of places. The heart union jack bunting was from Sainsburys a few years ago. And all the cat themed things were gifts or from charity shops. I like to switch up the display every now and again, and I'm thinking of doing themed displays for events of the month! February was valentines themed and I had a rose garland and the ceramic hearts you can see on the Expedit.
Our 'media centre' as I like to call it is in the corner of the room out of sight. I don't like having a television as the focus of the room, they're ugly bits of technology in my opinion. I do like the record player area I cobbled from a single Expedit shelf and some legs, they're the perfect size for vinyl. I've finally been able to realise my dream of having a corner sofa as well. Its so nice to be able to cuddle up on it, light candles and watch Netflix together. The corner unit was a gift from my mam, its so cute and the best thing is that I can switch up the fabric when I get bored. As we haven't got a dining room we had to find a table small enough to fit into the living room. This extendable one from Ikea was the perfect size. The wall unit with little knick-knacks in is from B&M, I love that place for furniture and home-wares.
