Im twiddling my thumbs waiting for a moving date to move into my first 'proper' home (ie not rented) and am starting to get some ideas about what to do with the rooms. The house has had an elderly couple living in it and therefore is quite old fashioned and needs redecorating, so is pretty much a blank canvas. The living room has a feature fireplace with dark green tiles around it which I quite like, and I would like to decorate the living room in keeping with this. I am thinking of a monochrome colourscheme on the whole, with green bits and bobs. (I cant stand lime or olive green, but I like nice deep dark rich green). Id quite like a grey sofa (white is impractical and black seems a bit too dark) such as this: http://www.dfs.co.uk/sofas/fabric-sofas/katrina/ I dont like modern style sofas as they are uncomfortable and I like to slouch on them, but we do have a black glass topped coffee table, and a modern black TV stand. Can this be done or it it just too many boxes to tick? I like the idea of a wood floor (or some cheaper version of!) with a rug. Any ideas/inspiration?!
