One of our favourite things to do lately is look through home transformations on Pinterest, getting inspired for our ‘one day’ renovation dreams. Our very own Alexandra, though, recently made this dream a reality with an outstanding lounge revamp. Check out the before and after below…
The key is in the name; our ‘living room’ is where we spend most of our life, and this is especially true for most of us over the past year. Many have opted to move home completely to improve their living space, but that’s not always the only option available.
By ‘revamping’ our current space, we can make an old, tired room into a completely new space, revitalising the home and improving mental health.
Mishon Mackay Branch Manager, Alexandra, has transformed her living room into a perfect contemporary relaxation space, adding in an ornate fireplace and some key beautiful statement items to create a stylish, yet functional room, perfect for spring.
Talking through what inspired the new design, Alexandra said:
“We would normally have moved onto a new home, as in the past we moved every 2-4 years, however we are so happy in this beautiful garden apartment, we settled on a little revamp!
“We kept the walls the same colour but updated the soft furnishings such as the cushions and the rug, then added a fireplace. Teal blue was an accent colour I loved – and so on trend too. It’s just perfect as it matches the tile colour in the fireplace.
“The copper in the lampshade gives a wonderful glow, and with the burnt orange piping on the teal cushions, it has fitted right into our new colour scheme. A large vintage rug clearly defines the seating area which is important in an open plan space such as ours. We added plants and candles to soften the hard surfaces and add interest.”
We were blown away by the impact such lovely aesthetic changes can make, that we wanted to share them to inspire others to revamp their current spaces too. The feel of a brand-new room can boost the spirit – and we all need a little boost right now.
Of course, we haven’t missed the added benefit of the improved home value, especially with the beautiful addition of a new fireplace.
