Grey for days…

I find myself trying to be drawn to different colours in the hope of sparking a new love but I always come back to grey. I am in the midst of planning the decor for a second living room (which has been happening for the past year) so I have been immersing myself in Pinterest, my ever trusty source of inspiration and frustration.

The second living room in my house is currently sporting a concrete floor, bare walls, dust bunnies and some washing piled into the corner which will get ironed during the week (or so I keep telling myself). Where some might see a mammoth task, I see 110 possibilities. I’m not great at explaining to others what I envisage but I can see it very clearly in my own head!

I hope to make this living room into a ‘snug’ and use the one we currently inhabit as a more formal space where we can entertain guests and maybe use on other special occasions such as Christmas.

I’ve had carried out extensive research on Pinterest and above is some of my sources of inspiration for the new living room. I am really loving the different layers of grey and white in these rooms from the deep brooding charcoal to the chalky barely there grey. I am forever torn between Contemporary, French and Georgian style/design and I hope that my new room has a little bit of all 3.

If you are undertaking a project of your own, be it little or large, I would love to know what your plans or what your inspiration is. Otherwise watch this space to keep up to date on my progress!

P.s If you have any ideas I would love to hear them!

Much love,

A Little Corner to Call My Own.

Happy weekend Frenchies, and it’s a bank holiday…yay!

We all have our own little corner at home, where we love to sit (or just admire).

My favourite little corner is in my living room. I have my favourite chair and butlers table in the little nook beside the stove.

  This fabric, I could actually look at all day, it is so pretty. I also love how it changes with the seasons, depending on your scatter cushions it looks right in summer or winter.

The scatter cushions I currently have are the Orla Kiely, Linear stem in duck egg (£40 from website) and Dragonfly cushion from M&S (Currently out of stock online).

I like duck egg blue and greens, as I feel the chair is just asking for nature inspired pieces, and if you look at the fabric in detail, as below, there are tiny blue birds scattered throughout! It also breaks up the Grey, which I love so much.

The chair itself was a generous wedding present from my aunt from a furniture shop in Ballymena, Northern Ireland called Woodgreen. I’m unsure of the brand of the chair, but the fabric is Lorton Ebony, if you do some googling it will come up!

Where is your favourite corner? Or do you have a trophy piece which you know you will never tire of?

Much Love,

Judy xo
