Monochrome magic | my home wishlist

Lets stay home print

I did it. I mentioned the 'r' word. Redecorate. The lounge. My husband gave me a look. The look that says 'no chance; get some cushions and a lamp and be done with it.'

I don't dislike my lounge. It's just not how I would do it now, given the opportunity to start from scratch. It's a bit, well, eight years ago. 

With a half-finished extension on the go, my chances of a freshly painted living room are pretty damn slim, so I've been seeking inspiration elsewhere.

Like the world and his dog, I've fallen head over heels for the monochrome look. I've always liked it for my wardrobe but not so much for the home. Until now. 

I assure you this post isn't sponsored by H&M Home (I wish), it's just so stylish and affordable. These picks will give a fresh look to my lounge for practically nothing.

I've also convinced myself I need this pineapple lamp, from Laura Ashley.

Finish off with a wall of cool prints and typography, mixed with family photos and we'll be good to go. I love this one from Etsy (and the one at the top of the page).

That 'C'est la Vie!' cushion must be mine. I'm off to place a cheeky H&M order :)
