We’ve been thinking about updating our living room for a while so now Archie has torn a huge strip of wallpaper off the chimney breast it’s about time we did something about it. We’re not going to totally change the whole room, the laminate flooring & furniture will be staying so the new colour scheme needs to fit with what we already have, plus it took me long enough to convince the hubby that a pink armchair would be fab so that’s definitely not changing. The hubby loves our dark grey walls but it’s just too much for me, we’ll be sticking with a masculine black, grey & white theme but I’ll be adding touches of pink & gold. I’m so loving black and gold at the moment, especially in photo frames & wall art. I’m planning on creating some gorgeous typography style images to go on the wall plus print some of my favourite photos in black & white too. I can’t wait to get started, what did we do before Pinterest to get ideas!

    Isn’t it funny how the kids’ actions call for redecorating? I have yet to deal with brown scribbles on my once lovely Orange Magnolia walls!!!

    I love all these inspirations you’ve gathered. They’re all beautiful and classy 🙂

      At least it gave us the kick we needed to get on with it. We’re definitely not papering the chimney breast this time, paint all the way!

    Oh yes, these colours work so well together and I love the examples you’ve put together. Especially the office space in the last photo. Can’t wait to see what you do to your living room – it sounds like it will be amazing.


    PS. Your wesbite is looking fab by the way.

    You have some lovely pictures, I have just bought some black picture frames which is usual for me but I am loving all the striking images that are around at the moment. The black and grey with the pink accents is beautiful x
