Makeover: The lounge

After unpacking for what seemed like forever {and we still have more to do}, we finally managed to do some decorating in our new house...and when I say 'decorating', I mean getting all the furniture in place and putting a few odds and ends out.

At the moment the lounge/family room is basically done, so I thought I would share some pics with you....
As you can see, there is still some work to do, like pictures need to go up and a few odds and ends need to be done...but overall I am loving it...its exactly how I had dreamt it would look...

We are getting there slowly...little things are happening all the time..
....and all I can say is that, I am loving every single second of it...I am in my element right now...

Beautiful.

I love it.

And your wingbacks are divine. Something I need to find for my lounge.

Love your stepladder/shelfie thing.

I could live quite happily in that room :)

I love the paint colour on your walls - what is it? - Also love the cream/blue scheme throughout - very stylish! (Very Martha too!) BTW - do you subscribe to MS Living? I've always wondered, seeing as you are a fan.

It looks beautiful! Did you put laminate flooring down, or is that the exposed floorboards? I love it.
And whats the "M" for?
