The Big Reveal!

At last after a long time spent alluding to the fact I was decorating my front room and a few sneak peeks here is my (nearly!) finished work... 

but first the before...

and after....

As you can see I really have been de-cluttering!

I started with changing my sofa covers to grey ones as they are more durable!

I know it's just me but I still managed to get the white covers in such a mess!

I fell in love with these cushions by Barbara Coupe but couldn't justify their hefty price tag until I discovered they were available to purchase on Rockett St George using paypal and my eBay funds

The Kissing on VJ Day poster was a starting point for my new wonder wall and a gift for Christmas

A new console table to match my side tables sits underneath my window

A new bin (also a paypal purchase) sits underneath my window

And a close up of my window sill shows my King Charles dogs that came from my parents home, an Eiffel Tower from Homesense and fabulous photo of my nephew and I

Please note the tissue box will be hidden in one of these eventually since I've discovered the store will also take paypal so more eBay sales are required first!

I had envisaged purple to be the accent colour in the room but after I saw how fabulous my red Valentine's roses looked in the room I went for red which worked well to accommodate Yankee Candles new True Rose fragrance

Some red on the sofa and another Barbara Coupe cushion

Finally my Diptyque candle has a home

A cheeky sign to accompany my stash of booze!

I had originally wanted chandeliers but decided light-shades would be easier should I fancy a change at a later date

and of course my dining table is awaiting new chairs!

And that brings us back to the beginning!

There's still bits and pieces to do, a mirror and blinds to be hung but I love how simple it feels and can now enjoy picking up bits and pieces as I go along to add a little something here and there and more importantly - its so much easier to keep clean and tidy!!

I hope you enjoyed the tour!
