Interiors | Key decorative pieces for my living room

We’ve recently had a living room make over, the old living room was tired and tatty and it really needed a bit of a revamp. The living room is now finished (post on that to follow) and we now need to start decorating it.

I wanted to share with you a few of the key decorative pieces we have got for the room so far.

1/ Carnival Light  I am a bit obsessed with anything personalized, I also love letters and if I could my house will be full of them.

I love carnival lights and I know there are a lot of companies out there selling them. I discovered Bob & Blossom thanks to Instagram and I thought their lights were quite affordable compared to some others out there so I purchased mine from them.

The light sits on the mantelpiece and it’s always a hit whenever I feature it in my own Instagram account.

2/ Cable & Cotton String Lights  I blame Pinterest for these! I kept seeing these lights a lot and I originally thought they’d be perfect to go around my fireplace but when I received them I realised they were far too big for it . I decided I’d use them on the corner of the living room instead.

The walls in the living room are magnolia and  I really wanted to inject colour  so these lights are perfect for that.

I have the Mexican combination but there are lot’s of other combinations or you can create your own.

3/ Table Lamp  Ever since we thought of renovating the living room I had this idea of having a nice big table lamp to go on top of one of the shelves. I love lighting and I really like how you can change the mood in different rooms with different type of lights. I wanted something tall and big to be a focal point  and I found this amazing light in John Lewis. I love the texture of the base and even though I wanted something taller I am pretty happy of how it looks in the living room.

These are the main pieces we have but I’m planning on getting some more bits and pieces. I need to get a colourful rug and some wall art, let me know if you have any recommendations.

What do you think of my key decorative pieces? Do you like them? Have you got anything like this in your living room?

  1. LOVE the lamp and the cable lights! I'm a huge fan of lighting too. Looks like a fab makeover, I love the fun feel you've gone for :) Found your post via #bigpinklink and I'm looking forward to reading more :)
  2. Hey, just to pre-warn you I am blind and cannot see the pictures. But the explanation of each feature sounds really cool and great staple pieces for your living room :) looking forward to getting to know you better on this Linky :) #BigPinkLink
  3. I love carnival lights but could never justify the huge price tag of the proper metal ones. I'm so pleased that they're now everywhere in plastic format - I picked up a great star for my little boy's bedroom that looks great. It's only up close you'd realise it's plastic! Love your light too - good lighting makes such a huge difference to a room! #bigpinklink
    1. I think with the metal lights you need to shop around a bit as there are more people doing them now so they are not as pricey as they used to be. Thanks for your comment.
  4. I think it all looks awesome! I'm just discovering homeware on Instagram and Pinterest too, so no doubt it will become a huge obsession for me! We've recently revamped our living room, and as we have an Edwardian house, went for Edwardian themes and colours. We have a huge vintage, velvet sofa in racing green, a floral green chaise, a huge chandelier, and my favourite, some green toile de jouy wallpaper. I love it all!! I will look forward to seeing how it all comes together for you-I think I need to go and look up those cable and cotton string lights-amazing! Thanks for sharing this with us at #bigpinklink
    1. Velve sofa sounds amazing! Be careful, homeware on Pinterest can be quite addictive! The sting lights are great, you can basically choose your own combination if you wanted to.
  5. Aaah it looks GORGEOUS!! We've got the Cable and Cotton lights in the twins bedroom — they're absolutely gorgeous aren't they?! I love all your little homely touches — such a lovely room :) Thanks so much for linking up with us — I hope you can join us again tomorrow from 6am on #HomeEtc
    1. Yes, love the Cable and Cotton lights, very pleased I got them. Thanks for hosting and will be linking up again shortly
