Interior decorating ideas- Living room

If you saw yesterday's post with our exciting news, you'll know that we are soon to (hopefully) get the keys for our new house, although this process has taken a lot longer than I thought it would.

As you can imagine I've been pinning ideas over on Pinterest like a crazy woman so I thought I would share with you some of the ideas I have.

We've agreed that the first room we'll tackle will be the living room, we'll slowly but surely get all of the house decorated and re-done in some way but all in time- I keep repeating this mantra to myself, I'm very impatient and want it all to be done right now!

I'm obsessed with grey, I think I would go as far as to say it's my favourite colour. I think Grey is perfect for any room in a house, it can be jazzed up with splashes of bright colour or be kept neutral with added white accessories which is my plan. I love the grey silver toned paint on my mood board below.

I've been obsessively scouring the internet for living room ideas and I'm pretty much basing it around the main picture in my mood board which I of course found on Pinterest. It's the same shape as our new living room, although our living room currently has a black electric fire fitted into the chimney breast that I want  taken out. The previous owners have told us that they installed it but it never gets used as the house holds heat well and it gets very warm in the living room. Plus it doesn't go with the colour scheme so it needs to go! I still want a mantelpiece as I want to be able to display photos or candles.

I love the idea of alcove storage. It would be ideal for us as Nath has SO many DVDs and I have a collection of book. It would add extra storage without us having to buy big units that would get in the way. We'll probably have to get them built to fit, I'm not sure how we'd fit our ridiculously large TV onto it though. Why do men always have to choose the biggest TV in the shop?!

I want to get some curtains to add something to the room and these ones from Next are perfect. I love the zigzag design and they're the right shade.

I am obsessed with this light! I saw the exact same one in a light shop in my hometown but this one from Wayfair is a fraction of the price, I definitely need it in my life. It's so quirky and different

These stag's head hessian cushion's from Not on the Highstreet would be ideal on our grey sofa.  If you remember our wedding decor you'll know that I have a bit of a thing for hessian.

I'm also planning on doing some upcycling which I'm pretty excited about. My first project will be our old wooden coffee table which has a glass panel in the middle. It's currently a light pine colour but with the help of blogger's favourite, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I'm going to paint it white.

What do you think of my ideas?
