So here you have it - a new sofa and two new old armchairs (his & hers - haha) and a cosier wall colour. I'm a bit surprised at how it all came together; I had felt that the living room needed an overhaul for a while, but didn't dare mention it to the hubby (after all there was nothing wrong with the room as it was, it's just that it had been like that for years). Imagine my surprise when a couple months ago he said that maybe it was time to get rid of our old sofas and start over again. Luckily our tastes have blended together over the years so there were no headaches over what we wanted. Initially I thought it would be nice to find two matching vintage armchairs but I'm now very happy that we didn't - too matchy matchy can be a bit boring. Anyway, we're very pleased with the result (and all the seating is so much more comfortable!) and I've just realised that we moved into this house six years ago today! Not a bad way to celebrate if you ask me :)
Have a great weekend folks!
the sofa is gorgeous ! the one i wanted in years...ReplyDelete
love the last shot too !
Looks wonderful, Change can be goodReplyDelete
wow, grattis på 6-årsdagen! och finfint blev det! gillar att ni satsade på två olika fåtöljer, blire något tekoppsbord mellan? jag tror jag skulle typ sitta där och svaja med min tekopp om jag inte hade något bord och råka ställa den på ett påhittat bord å så KRASCH! (klant)ReplyDelete
your wall color is making me swoon.ReplyDelete
beautiful, I'm totally in love with the blue armchair!ReplyDelete
it's a brilliant makeover! love the paint colour and i have to confess to having serious chair envy :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I love the his and her idea.ReplyDelete
beautiful chairs & sofa! like charlotte i'm now having serious chair envy :)ReplyDelete
and the grey walls goes brilliantly with the wooden floors.
wow i can't believe how good that walls look in that color!! i have always been a white-walls-kinda-girl but it really brings the room and all the colours together so nicely! Good job!!ReplyDelete
I have been struggling with our livingroom for a year now.... something just isn't quite right.. think i need to do something radical!
I knew the update would be beautiful!ReplyDelete
Every thing is super fint!
Happy Fri to you!!!
funkee, funkie, funkee...ReplyDelete
(hope you are familiar with that scene of "green wing" ;)
i'm in love with your chairs. exactly like what na & i have been looking for.ReplyDelete
Looks so great !! Love the grey walls :) the sofa has such nice cushions!ReplyDelete
Love it! Love it! And I love all the new furniture (it is the sofa that I was picturing....I'm maybe just a little bit jealous of that)! And it would seem a very swift transformation too! Yay, well done you guys! :) xReplyDelete

looks fantastic. i love that wall colour, and the couch.ReplyDelete
we bought a new bed recently (at habitat too), and the change felt so good. the living room's next i think...
Great styling Famapa! Really digging the minimal lighting in these photos. Have a fantastic weekend!ReplyDelete
i like your styleReplyDelete
Looks awesome! I was quite convinced my living room could not be painted any other colour but white, but this makes me feel like paining ;)ReplyDelete
gillart! behagligt och snyggt med mörkare, alla färger blir så fina ihop. fåtöljerna också, fiina! och ser behagliga ut de med! pax för den lilla! :)ReplyDelete
That color is absolutely awesome. I painted my bedroom a lightish grey a while ago, and immediately wished that I had painted it the shade that you've painted your living room. I think you might have inspired me to go get some paint.ReplyDelete
I am loving those color combinations and shapes! Subtle, yet interesting.ReplyDelete
thanks for all your comments! for those of you who are thinking of painting a room a dark colour I can't recommend it enough, just make sure you test a few colours first to get the right shade (darker usually works out better and warmer!).ReplyDelete
sandra: det blir nog ett litet bord så småningom, just nu är det farligare med låga bord med oomoo i farten!
la ninja: ha! green wing was sooooo funny - thanks for reminding me :0)
Such a stylish colour and sofa. Cosy and Chic all at once. Surely the best possible outcome. Hurrah.ReplyDelete
I love the color! (and the Mumin toys).ReplyDelete
love the color and the entire groove and feeling to the room. a space that i could feel at home in. really beautiful. i am so ready for a change in our living space. in every room!ReplyDelete
Love the new colour, it's more or less the same we'll be painting our livingroom with (once we have the time and energy to actually start painting).ReplyDelete
BTW: Dear Famapa, could you do a post on some of your favourite places in London (restaurants, shops, museums, neighbourhoods)? I'm going there in 3 weeks, and want to see something else except the usual touristy places (where I usually end up).
pleaseeeeee what is the colour of the walls xReplyDelete
tiram: I'm going to have to refer you to tommy's london guide - it's got all the places I love and more in it. it's the perfect guide, trust me!! hope you find it useful!ReplyDelete
abi: the colour code is 50BG18033 and it's by dulux. it looks much more pale and grey in the tin, but it dries as a lovely deep greybluegreen :0)
Just gorgeous, Famapa! Love the grey walls and the teal-y chair. Just lovely.ReplyDelete
love every bit about it, and i have to say i am a sucker for the dark walls. BEAUTIFUL!!.xReplyDelete
happy weekend to you.x
Love your new decor and really enjoy your blogReplyDelete
