Home Makeover - Living Room Inspiration

We are really close now to having our living room makeover complete. So I thought I would take this opportunity to share some of the pictures that helped inspire our makeover of this room.

Rooms that are light and spacious always catch my eye and draw me in, and thats what we want to create in our home. Its a small house, and the rooms are not overly generous in size. But its just right for the two of us, and seeing that with the current housing climate we shall not be moving anytime soon we wanted to turn our home into just that. Our Home.
We already had a large picture in the room that was of green bamboo, and with the room backing onto the garden, (eventually we have plans for a little conservatory, but thats a little way off yet)
we really wanted to create the feeling of 'bringing the outside in' so concentrated on off whites, vibrant greens, leafy prints, textures and light oak furniture/flooring

These are just a few of the pictures that I came across when trawling the internet for ideas (the wallpaper sample shown is actually what we now have on one wall in the room. love it)

We needed it to be practical (with storage and a tv/games console area) but relaxing. A space to come home after work and instantly feel happy.

I shall share before photos soon & the final finished room soon too. x
