The living room is now in need of repainting and freshening up. We bought a really smart new tv stand at the weekend which looks so much better than the old one and I'm really pleased with that. Of course this has spurred me on and just makes me want to go and buy lots more gorgeous new things! Our sofa is almost 7 years old now and is very tired but we won't be replacing it just yet, we need to wait till the children are a bit older and can be trusted to take more care of it. This doesn't stop me looking at our options. We have two large sofas at the moment but they don't really suit the shape of the room any more and I think we perhaps need to look at investing in a large armchair and sofa instead. We also need to look at some new lighting as our living room does have a tendency to be quite dark. I'd like a standing lamp in one of the corners but I've not found one that quite fits the bill yet. We can't do much with the colour scheme of the living room as we also have an open plan kitchen which has deep red gloss units and these can been seen from the sofa.

I can't wait to share some pictures of our news rooms with you as we get a bit further along!
