The following photos are of my family room/living space which comprises of a kitchen and living room. We have a more formal sitting room at the front of the house and a utility room at the back of the kitchen for all of our appliances. You can see some other posts about some other rooms and progress here
There really want a kitchen before we moved into the house, the old lady had a couple of units, a sink and a cooker in the small utility room out the back but there were no fitted units at all!
The living room and kitchen were separated by a long, dark corridor which we knocked down and we are now left with one big open plan space. It was hard to try and capture this in a photo.
I picked up the lovely silver cushions at the Next event last week and they match the curtains perfectly.
Can you see what I was watching on TV? I love the wallpaper here, we were going to go with a bold print but I'm glad we with with a neutral grey. It has some fine silver stripes running through it, so nice up close.
My lovely Fiji diffuser from Next which fills the room with a lovely and summery coconut scent.
The place mats were sale bargain in Wilkinsons, the tumblers are from Next and the lovely purple vase in the middle was a charity shop find.

Sookie! We got the kitchen units and granite sink for a bargain price from Focus DIY when it went into administration a few years ago along with the bathroom suite.The bathroom had a total transformation, the green carpet tiles and bathroom suite are long gone and have been replaced with white and natural shades. We changed the layout completely and it works so much better now. All that's left to do in the bathroom is find a shower screen and some art for the wall.
Spending time at home is much more pleasurable now that the work is coming to an end and I'm really enjoying hunting for some finishing touches to make my house a home. It's my family home so the decor isn't to my taste, my room is a mix of old furniture, records and books everywhere with clothes flowing out of all of my cupboard but my family prefer a more modern and streamline look.
