Well, its back, the I love Mondays blog post. I hope you have all having a fantastic summer, and not feeling too frazzled. We are having a fantastic summer, but we seem to be so busy, I’m feeling a little dizzy….. or maybe that was the cocktails from my night out with my fellow Nottingham Bloggers? 😉
If you’ve not come across ‘I Love Mondays’ before, let me explain a little about it.
Every Monday I write a post that includes some of the things that we love at The Ana Mum Diary. I’ve called it ‘I Love Mondays’ a kind of antithesis to the ‘I Don’t Like Mondays’ hit by the Boomtown Rats. I plan on helping banish the Monday blues with beautiful things. I will virtual shop for your every need. Perhaps introducing you to something that you may have not seen or an online shop you have never visited before. You are in good hands, so sit back and grab a cuppa.
Once the school holidays are over I shall be updating my living room. I have ordered two new sofa’s, more on those soon. The rest of the redecoration needs be done on a budget, so it will be some soft furnishings and a few bits and pieces to make it feel cosy. I would also like to try to fit a small desk in. But again I am trying to do this on a budget, so I’m on the look out for a small desk and a chair, if I can find a second-hand or vintage one I will be so happy! I’m actually dreaming about cushion and colours, I really am undecided what to go for.
In this post I want to include some of the cushions I am considering, from John Lewis. One of the main reason we are changing the living room is that it feels quite dark, it’s actually a nice sized room, but I think the two dark chocolate leather sofas that we have currently really aren’t helping. So I’m thinking pastel colours, or maybe creams so here are my ideas:
This one is £35 from John Lewis, I like that there is a little colour and I’m definitely hoping the new living room is going to be relaxing!
I just love, love this one, also available from John lewis at £50 (44 inches square) its a really large cushion and I love the vintage feel to it.
a Jigsaw cushion from John Lewis at £35. I’m drawn to this one, I think because of the birds and the duck egg blue colour. It would keep things looking light but adding a hint of colour.
I have so many cushions, I’m also considering making my own and reusing the inner. Or just buying cushion covers.
Priced at £10 for the cushion cover, I love this pretty and feminine design. I’m not sure how it will look in my living room but it definitely would keep the sofas looking fresh and light. My conservatory is actually green, and the next room to the living room so this might actually work quite well.
Well these are my thoughts so far, I shall be including some sofa ideas hopefully next week, including the ones that we have decided to go for.
