My sitting room - in detail!

Do you find that you suddenly get really tired of a room (or area) in your home? I'd been thinking about changing my sitting room for over 6 months as it just didn't feel cosy enough (see the before pictures here), and isn't that what this part of the home is all about?! You might recall from a post a few weeks back that I finally got around to shaking it up (with a little help from my friend Gen). The first thing I did was sell my old sofa and replace it with a Söderhamn three-seat sofa with chaise-longues with a Bemz urban loose fit cover in Rosendal pure washed linen in silver grey. We also felt that to turn this little corner of my home into a true Autumn haven it would need a few other changes too - some old, some new. By popular demand (feeling the love friends, feeling the love!), here is a guide to where everything is from...

I'd love to hear more about your home - is there anything you're dying to change?

Have a lovely day!

PS I'm feeling a little bleary eyed after four incredible days in the Arctic. It's such an amazing part of the world. At times you'd be forgiven for thinking you're in the Caribbean. It was also so far out into the wilderness that I almost felt like a an imposter - and we were occasinally joined by curious porpoises, sea otters, fish, and sea birds. Today I'm heading off for a photoshoot at Gen's - keep an eye on instagram stories for a peek behind the scenes!
