Summer Living (Room)

Maybe I've been watching too much Mr Kate lately - seriously, this is one addictive YouTube channel -, but I've been thinking about decorating my own space for the warmer months. 

First on my wish list? A place of my own would be a great place to start, but of course, I'm also lusting after one of those amazing sofas. Ideally, I'd want two - a statement couch, like this blue velvet number for instance and a more simple, brown leather sofa to ground the room a bit more. Add a few classic margarita glasses filled to the brim, some gold accents, a ton of greenery and voilà, you have my dream living space! 



Cushions : H&M, Target | Bowls : Anthropologie | Light fixture : Leroy Merlin | Frame : Oliver Bonas | Plant : Ikea | Bookends : Target | Margarita glasses : World Market | Coasters : Jonathan Adler | Side table : Target | Pouf : Lulu & Georgia | Rug : nuLoom | Candle : Dytique 'Figuier' | Trinket dish : West Elm | Sofa : Fishpools | Palm leaf cushions : Lulu & Georgia | Coffee Table : West Elm


Of course, I'm a millennial so I'd be grateful to ever find a studio without blue carpet in zone 2 or 3 within my price range, but hey, one day, am I right?

How would you decorate your dream living room?

  3. Love the gold accents and greenery. I have two kids though so that velvet couch would be a pretty terrible idea for us!

  4. Oh my gosh! I have no idea how to decorate a whole room- I love quirky stuff or anything with fruit, but I dont think that's really appropriate for a living room. I love how sophisticated your living room would be. Those blue and gold coasters are amazing.

    1. Thank you! I think you could definitely get away with including a few fruit-shaped candles and dishes. x
