Home Inspiration #5 || Living room

Welcome to the fifth blogpost of the Home Inspiration series! This one will be all about the living room area and how I plan on decorating this space. In case you didn't see the previous blogposts from this series, here's a quick sum up of what style of decorating I prefer: 
The decorating style that I love and plan on going for in the entire apartment is the scandinavian, nordic, minimalist type. I really like furniture with clean lines, not too embellished or fancy, which you will be able to tell from the inspiration boards that I've put together below. For the colours I want to go for white and grey, and then to warm up the place - brown/cream tones and lots of texture (blankets, throw pillows, baskets etc.). 


I've made two collages for this, because I thought putting everything together into one will be too much. In the first one I focused on the area around the sofa. We both (my fiance and I) love this style of sofa from Ikea - it is the Kivik one in the Isunda colour. I looove that shade, and even if we don't end up getting that exact one, I really want to get a light grey couch. I don't want to have a dark coloured couch, but I also don't want a white one, because that's just terrifying- haha. I can only imagine how quickly a white couch would get dirty. So I think this grey one is the perfect middle ground. I think a light wooden coffee table would go great with this - I also don't want to go with white for the coffee table because the rest of the furniture will be featuring a lot of white (like the TV stand) and I think this is a better look. I am so excited to get little decorations for the coffee table, as well as some lovely throw pillows, all of the ones I featured above are from H&M Home - I absolutely love their decor pieces. 


For the TV area, I would love to get a combination from the Besta systems from Ikea. I think the plain white ones look so pretty and I think I like the combination with four units. I already have two floor lamps from Ikea (the one pictured in the upper left corner), which I love and I think those really warm up the place and make it look cosy. One thing that I really love and would like to get is the simple shelving unit with four spaces for baskets - I love that combination and I think it will look really nice with the rest of the furniture and decor. I really want to make this room especially nice, because it will probably be the room that we're in most of the time - because we'll also have our office area on a side of this room. The office decor pieces will be featured in tomorrow's blogpost, so stay tuned.

I hope you liked to read/see what I would like to have for home decor and I would love it if you would give me feedback in the comments below. Let me know what you think I should add/remove from this decorating plan.

  1. I love the first collage.Those throw pillows are great! Gray has been my favorite color to decorate with because you can go all neutral or mix up the accent colors. Have a great week!
