A Pinterest Worthy Lounge

I have some very exciting life news, I am moving out of my London flat or maisonette (so it sounds bigger) to the slightly leafier world of Walton-On-Thames and I couldn’t be more excited. This move comes with a whole lot of shopping as we are going to become landlords and rent our other place – I feel a little scared but excited at the same time. So the first room I am looking at is my lounge, in my current place the lounge is my favourite place maybe because it was the first room we painted or maybe it’s because it’s the only room we actually fully furnished and I will be sad to see my green feature wall and my massive flamingo artwork go. The only things we are keeping are the TV for obvious reasons and my bar cart, which I could not part with as I made it myself.

So first things first, Pinterest is a must, make sure you start planning your 'Ideal Home' and gather up all your ideas, it makes it easier to select the look and types of products you want to fill your blank canvas. Your room needs a focal point or something to point at your TV, that is right folks a sofa is the first and foremost the most important thing in your lounge - I would be interested to know how many days you sit on a sofa in your lifetime I can imagine its crazy but it is an important purchase and you do not want to make it a wrong one. The sofas and chairs that feature below are from The Lounge Co, as you are basically designing your own sofa at a great price. They have 24 piece range which really focuses on British design which fits perfectly with the aesthetic I would like running throughout my home. You can either hunt online or visit a local showroom mine is Chiswick and I think I will be popping down soon. When you pick your sofa it's going to be with you for a long time so you need to fall in love with your first sit. When you are happy with your sofa you are then able to choose your fabric from over 100 designs and you can get it in 4-6 weeks, I need to get ordering sharpish.

Now you have your focal point it is time to decorate with poufs, lamps, artwork, throws and even some security (which means I can monitor Dylan while I am out n’ about) I also have moved on from flamingos to cactus’ and I have fallen in love with this print from Oliver Bonas (unfortunately they only sell the frame but that is lovely too). Every room also must have a hint of rose gold and it needs to smell divine, my favourite scent at the moment being the new Wild Sage collection from The White Company, such a clean and fresh scent filling the room with garden herbs.

Check out some of my other favourite lounge pieces below:
