Hey folks. Its been ages since my last formal post. We had a very busy social calendar from November to January with a lot of guests vising and trips abroad. All in all super fun but quite tiring, and no time for blogging sadly. So today after working the weekend I just wanted to dedicate a post to the most nearly finished room, and the one that we spend most time in. The lounge/living room, for a few before pictures see the previous blog post here. Living with dark green on the walls is fantastic. The colour is so rich and it transforms during the day and along the year with different lights on it and creates a real sense of depth and cosiness. My Norwegian friends would call it koselig. As always there are still things pending to be done. Our TV unit has been on order since October and is currently on route to the UK via the Suez Canal - keep tuned for more updates on the Ziggy. And I want some fabulous half moon lampshades for the lights as even though they are dimmable I prefer not being able to directly look at bulbs when they are in my line of sight... is it just me?
Anyway, I could natter away about all sorts of crap for ages. but here are the photos which I've taken with an SLR as my phone is on the verge of dying and also the SLR allows for better low light photos. Hope you enjoy.
Creating social seating spaces are so important. A lot of living rooms have furniture facing the TV, but I tried to move away from this by creating seating that faces each other to create a sense of dialogue. This allows people to sit and speak to each other by being able to look at one another, but also can be flexible by turning the chair around to allow all seats to watch a movie together. Its important to spend time without the TV and speaking to each other. From a colour point of view I chose a rose pink Persian rug to inject some warmth and this is also reflected in the polished copper plate I inherited from my mother.
