First time mum Home Decor Challenge

“To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition, the end to which every enterprise and labour tends…” by Samuel Johnson

Ever since I started maternity leave and being a mum, I stayed at home more often than ever. For the first time, I realise our furniture need changing as well as the decor to make it more welcoming to our guest and baby friendly. I need more storage space for my baby’s ever increasing gadgets and less "corners" as my boy will be learning to crawl and walk soon.

Living room inspiration from our recent trip to to IKEA Wales.

Living room 1
– the colour scheme
– the round corner-less white glossy dining table which takes up less space than our current ones
– plenty of storage space provided by the wall cabinet
– the flamboyant lamp shade
– the coffee table (I prefer a small foldable table I could put away to create more walking space for the baby)

Living room 2
Like the halogen light built into the ceiling
Dislike the wall cabinet has too many sharp corner baby can bump into

Living room 3
Very Like the wall cabinet as I can display picture frames (hopefully some baby’s craft as well) without drilling holes into the wall (but can I have it all?)
Dislike the colour scheme, similar to ours at the moment, is too dark for our small living room

Living room 4
Like the sofa with foot rest seems comfy
Dislike the overall feel of the living room is quite dull for my liking especially if I were to spend £2500 on a new living room

In conclusion, if I have £2500 to spend on a new living room, I would go for a colour scheme like living room number one with light blue sofa plus foot rest and glossy white dining table; built -in ceiling light featured in living room number two and wall cabinet where I do not have to drill hole to display picture frames in living room number three.
