Living Room Update!

Time for a living room update!

We had the green textured wallpaper removed and the walls re plastered whilst we were on holiday and so when we came back the walls were super smooth (pretty much - although the hubs being a perfectionist still re-sanded some parts!)  We also finally removed the plastic fake ceiling rose which has been bugging me for three years (good riddance!)  So now we're at the prepping stage. We have decided to do this ourselves to save a few pennies plus the hubs is a super good painter (its that perfectionist streak again!)

So if you go back to this mood board here we are still on track for the blue colour palate. I think we are going for the one on the right of the picture which is Dulux colour mix liberty blue no 6. Its quite a calming blue with a touch of grey.

A new addition to the moodboard is that we are thinking about using some sort of tiling around the fireplace. (See picture below)  I think the tiles would add a bit of pattern to the room and create a focal point around the fireplace but we are thinking about a darker blue and white tile What do you think?

More soon!
