Something you may or may not know about me is that I live with my parents. It's not something I'm ashamed of - I have such a good relationship with my family and I'm lucky to have a lot of my own space, including a bedroom, living room, bathroom and nursery for the Little Mr (ready for when he arrives!) Basically it's like having my own flat but within easy reach of the people I love most!

I'll definitely be doing a little nursery tour for those interested but today I wanted to share my gorgeous new living room with you. It's stylish, yet comfortable and very ME. I'm absolutely in love with it!
When designing my living room, the first piece of furniture I found was this gorgeous Holstebro sideboard from Argos. I loved the dark Walnut wood finish and the almost retro feel it had. I was lucky that the colour of the wood toned in with the stripy flooring, which was already down in my living room and even luckier that Argos also sold a matching TV unit. Both pieces were on offer at a great price, so I quickly snapped them up!
As far as I'm aware the Holstebro Sideboard and TV Unit are no longer available (possibly discontinued) as I know Argos were having trouble with their suppliers. If you're looking for an equally stylish alternative, I definitely recommend checking out their Hygena range, which has a minimalist Scandi look to it that's really in right now.

Of course, my living room would be an empty shell without a few home accessories! I decided to go for copper and marble accessories (I'm a walking cliche) but I think they look so, so beautiful. The copper shades tone in really well with my furniture and give my living room some warmth.

Finding the right cushions for my living room was quite a challenge! I'm very picky and didn't want to spend a fortune. Although the cushion covers were very reasonably priced at H&M, they were charging £6.00 each for inners, which I think is a little expensive. After shopping around, I found that you could get 6 for the same price on Amazon, so I bought them from a seller on there instead. If you decide to do the same, make sure you check the sizes first!

Although I share the kitchen with my family, I wanted to have my own drink making facilities! It's so nice just being able to make a quick latte in the living room and really convenient when I have people over. I'm drinking decaf coffee at the moment but thankfully Tassimo do decaf pods so I don't miss out just because I'm pregnant!

Sticking with the copper theme, I managed to pick up three canisters from George at Asda (which is excellent for affordable home accessories by the way) for £4 each. Unfortunately they seem to be out of stock at the moment but keep checking the site just incase! I imagine they're pretty popular, what with everyone going crazy for copper right now.

The great thing about my living room is that it's a practical space for working in too. Giving up my office space so I could create a nursery for the Little Mr was a no brainer but when I do get back into working from home, it's good to know I can work in here, rather than my bedroom. The coffee table top actually lifts up so you can have it at a raised height, giving you a desk option.

So there we have my living room and some of my favourite items in it! I hope you've enjoyed having a nosey round. Be sure to let me know what you think! Oh and if you can recommend anywhere for prints I can put on the walls (not too expensive), leave a comment below as they're looking a little bare right now.
