I think it all started with this oil painting from our rented old home and I always found myself staring into it.
It has this serenity of the ocean and gives me this sort of calmness and holiday vibe. Being in lockdown also gave me the opportunity to work on plenty of DIY projects, it is my way to relieve stress and it is also proving to be very therapeutic.
The first thing is the living room feature wall. Having seen hundreds of designs as part of my work, deciding one for our own home is more complicated than it seems. I got a little psycho and did so many versions, but one thing is for sure, the style that we want to achieve is a bohemian decor style with a coastal beach twist or some would call it bohemian beachy chic.
This theme is great as both me and hubs work from home, and we want our home to be carefree and have a chilled and relaxed vibe, away from all the stress.
Currently, we are using Ikea sheer curtains for the windows, we wanted to install nice curtains from the ceiling, but it cost a bomb! So maybe later.
Heads up, there is a tall basket vase on the right to the console, it kinda looks unfinished. We will eventually get a nicer plant or pampas - we just haven’t found the right one yet! 😉
I also recently just remove all carpets from our home to make the house more dust-free, as I just got to know that I am allergic to dust. Maybe we only use carpets when we can have guests over.
Fake flowers are also a wonderful way to add freshness and life to the living room. Plus, they can last forever!
