Welcome to our living room. The living room is, of course, loudly said, since the apartment is one-room. But this part of our house is what we call it.

The living room is still about the process of decoration and "cuddling". OU and I are a "photographer from God" - some photos convey the space a little strangely

Here we spend evenings, drink wine and eat light snacks, while watching movies and TV, hanging out with friends.

There was no way to combine the kitchen with the living room through the whole apartment, although, of course, I would like the living room to be a common space with the kitchen.

Initially, here (and throughout the apartment) I thought of a fusion style with elements of American, English and loft styles. I really didn’t want the popular Scandinavian style.

To say with confidence that I succeeded - I will not say.

I had to change my plans during the arrangement: firstly, the spouse took some decisions with hostility, I had to compromise, and secondly, I myself am a person “seven Fridays a week” and despite the fact that I made 3D pictures, I thought through everything 100 times, it turned out that in life everything looks completely different from in the head and in the picture.

The first thing that went wrong was, of course, the sofa. I wanted a beautiful sofa, in a classic style, velvet, deep blue or emerald green, a sideboard and a beautiful lamp, which I made from a bottle from a gift of cognac and collected pebbles in Crimea, should have stood on the side. My husband liked the other sofa, I tried hard not to notice it, since I was completely against the corner sofa, besides, my husband's choice is very cumbersome, he would have occupied the whole room.

Of course, when we went to the store for the couch, I knew what I was going for and what kind of couch I wanted to buy. I prepared my husband mentally, showed pictures, admired the velvet for two weeks in front of the store, specially left open pages with the sofa I liked on my laptop, discussed “my” sofa with her friends and parents in his presence. In general, I came from far away. And now I’m sitting at the manager’s table, making out the purchase of “my” dream sofa - in my head there is a clear picture of what I will choose for this sofa. But then something went wrong. While the manager and I were clarifying the details of the order, my husband, somewhere in the bowels of the showroom, found the MOST sofa that he saw on the site. I sat on it and that's it … weeks of my "psychological" pressure went down the drain.

He comes up to me and says - we take one or none, you just go sit down: I sat down and melted! Sitting on it after a hard day, lounging on it since Saturday night is a pleasure, pokemar on it during the day is just a class, and the corner section is like a hammock in general.

Everything, the picture in my head crumbled. And the only thing I said is that if this sofa is yellow. and velor.

The husband wanted a standard gray or brown matting color.

Yes, it is big, yes, it takes up a lot of space, but sitting down on it in the evening after work, I understand that comfort is better than beauty. And in general, it is not so cumbersome)

The sofa unfolds using a French folding bed mechanism, so you don't have to worry about the guests either.

In addition, due to the fact that the sofa is large enough (2.87 cm in length), we arrange gatherings with friends on it, 5-6 people are comfortably accommodated.

In the photo, it seems that the sofa is pushed into the corner, but it is not. The sofa is about 25-30 cm from the battery.

The second thing that went wrong was the curtains. I wanted Roman shades, because heating pipes run through our apartment on both sides, I wanted symmetrical pictures on the sides. Replace the battery with black cast iron or tubular batteries. (they have yet to be changed, they have now abandoned this due to lack of finance).

The abandonment of Roman curtains pulled the sofa along, as it seemed to me that Roman in this case would look very formal. At first I wanted some monochrome drawings.First I was looking for black and white striped curtains or with chevrons (zigzas).

But when I saw these flowers in the store, I fell in love. I took it without thinking. In addition, the curtains can be changed at any time.

I don't really like how the cornice looks. But I don’t want a wall cornice in principle. I think that visually it will shorten the height of the already small ceiling.

The curtains and the sofa pulled the chest of drawers behind them … I wanted to take his Ikeevsky malma, buy beautiful linings and paint them in an aged gold color.

We already went to Ikea, for the second chest of drawers (the first one is in the sleeping area) and … left Ikea with the Hemnes console. Along the way, I grabbed three boxes in the color of the wallpaper and a basket. In the future, I want to replace the boxes with wooden boxes.

some New Year's decor. The composition stands on the box, because the robot vacuum cleaner constantly poked at the snowmen and the candles, moving them to the sides.

I love wine, and I have to do something with empty bottles))))

I would also like to tell you about the flower stand, it is also a coffee table. I looked after this table from a friend in the store. They sell handmade carpets for big money. Crazy is from 300 thousand per carpet. And along the way, they sell all sorts of accessories, but for quite adequate money. I somehow agreed to dine with her, went into the salon and saw this table. I decided to buy it for my yellow sofa. Since we have pink birds on the wallpaper, I matched the color of the table to the birds. The tray is removable on top, it is convenient to serve a table in the kitchen and bring it into the room. But it was not there. well, the table did not stand next to the sofa, it is high, it looks small and ridiculous. As a result, the table was transformed into a flower stand. Well, bottles … where without them) at night they act as a night light.

Well, and the last view "on the bedroom." I will show the bedroom in detail next time, it is still in the process of decoration. And there is nothing special to show there: a bed, a chest of drawers, a curbstone. But I have the most plans for the bedroom in terms of decor)

From the main I will tell you: a bed with a lifting mechanism, a chest of drawers Ikea Malm. I wanted them to be 2 identical in the sleeping area and living room with beautiful overlays.

Well, that's probably all for today.

What else do I plan to improve in the living room:

  • decorate the wall above the sofa. I have an idea, I am slowly assembling the decor to decorate a panel from a picture, a photo frame, my own crafts, and some figurines.
  • replace a cheap ikeevsky table with a beautiful coffee table. I don’t know which one I want and which one I see. Do you have any tips?
  • carpet, I want a carpet. I think there will be more comfort.
  • the heating batteries are to be replaced, the one that is now very upsetting me.
  • to the right of the sofa, there is room for a narrow chest of drawers (about 60cm left there). I want to buy a tall and narrow chest of drawers from the Ikeev series Hemnes - this is in the light version. In the luxury version, I looked after myself such a chest of drawers Aquarelle Birch and I want to make wooden boxes in the console in the same color:

I want carpet ikea hovslund. Like this:

The overlays are like this. Maybe with a different pattern. I can’t decide in any way. Although it seems that it will look good: a carpet with the same pattern and the same chest of drawers. You can make not gold lining, but gray as a carpet.

and lastly, a little more wine decor:

To summarize, yes, my living room is not the same as I originally envisioned, but in general I feel very comfortable in it …
