Pin your dream living room and win an item for it! Competition from Casa Bella

I had a little sad moment this week about my living room carpet. You know how you can get sometimes, where you focus on one random thing and let it really bug you?

“Waaah!” I wailed. (Not out loud, but in my head for sure.) “I hate this carpet! My living room is never going to look pretty with this carpet in in!”

I have to check myself, as I once went a little bit mad over a bad carpet, and had to move house. It’s good to keep perspective.

To cheer myself up, I made a Pinterest board full of lovely pictures of living rooms and velvet sofas and wooden tables. This is exactly how my own living room would look if it wasn’t for the carpet obviously.

    I love this competition idea, mainly because I’ve been pinning my dream living room for almost two years now! I love the cube side table, it would totally work with my modern scheme. We’re just painting our bedroom at the moment but as soon as that is done, the living room will be started.Here’s my dream living room board:
    You might notice I’m a grey blue white addict. I think every room in my house is going to have that colour scheme!

    My living room is a combination of blue and monochrome. A work in progress we definitely need to look into storage so that our little one does not get her hands on my craft items before both of us are ready for lively art sessions. I have chosen the throw as it would look lovely draped over our sofa and I can imagine snuggling up with it when the cold draws in again. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I\’ve gone for a wooden feel with greys, orange and blue colour \’pops\’ throughout. Sounds awful but looks fantastic! http://www.pinterest. com/carsonsmummy/dream-living-room-with-casa-bella/ < I've put a space after the word pinterest as it wouldn't let me post the link in it's entirity xx

    I really enjoyed putting this together! My living room is one of the few spaces in my home I feel I have under control and looking how I want it, but theres definitely room for improvement! Storage is our main issue, so winning a side table or shelf would be fantastic! It wont let me post the link, but I’ve added it to the “website” bit on my comment details, so I think if you click my name that should work?
