Just Lounging Around…
Spending so much time at home has definitely made me realise how much I appreciate a cozy space. Our flat has definitely been a work in progress, but at the moment it’s feeling pretty good. So I’m taking a moment to give you a little tour of my favorite room: the lounge! It’s the room we probably spend most of our time in when we’re home!
I’ve talked in the past about the process of decorating our flat, and even though it’s not done yet, it’s nice and cozy! Our lounge also serves as our dining room as well, so it’s a real multipurpose space.
We’ve got a projector as well, so watching TV is always fun. Sometimes we move the coffee table, throw all our duvets, blankets and pillows on the floor and have a movie night. We watched the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy over the last bank holiday weekend and it was a cozy dream!
One thing I loved making a reality after spying it on Pinterest was my blanket ladder. Cozy blankets and fairy lights. What more could you need, really? It’s the place we come to just relax, enjoy a good meal, and get cozy. Plus we have lots of little easter eggs dotted around… like the globe we used as a guest book for our wedding. Or cards we sent each other when we were still lived in two different countries!
There’s still a few things I’d like to finish for the lounge… it’s very much a work in progress! I don’t love our dining table… It’s a farmhouse table, which I love, but the top is very manufactured. I found it in a junk shop for £30, so I’m not complaining, but I’d love a more rustic farmhouse table. I’d also love to get a nice rug for under the coffee table, and to finish the wall gallery.
Still, all things considered, I’m so happy with how cozy and joyful our lounge is! It really is the perfect spot to chill out with a cup of tea… maybe even light a few candles!
