Our Living Room; Updated Christmas Edition

If you follow me on twitter, you would have seen last month we were re-furnishing the living room. We rent a 2 bed apartment but it was partly furnished which was good to start with but now we know we’re staying for a while, we want to make it more our own so we got rid of all the old stuff and bought a whole new living room’s worth of furniture and of course, Ikea was the place to go! Now it’s Christmas, we’ve also managed to decorate it up all Christmassy without it looking cluttered or mis-matched… 
So, this is what it looked like before we did anything… It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t what we wanted! 

And now, this is how it looks…





















Snowman & Santa Teddy - Poundland (last year)
Reindeer Teddy - The Range
Winter Fruits Candle - Primark
Stocking Holders - Old Family Items
Stockings - Poundland 
Noel Sign - The Range
Red Candle Holders - Home Bargains
Glitter Reindeer - The Range 
Christmas Tree - B&Q 
Decorations - Various
TV Surround - IKEA
Sofa’s & Throws - IKEA
White Cabinet - IKEA
Red Tables - IKEA 
I really love our living room now and before we know it, the tree will have presents sitting under it! The next room to tackle is the bedroom and I can’t wait to get my very own dressing table; something i’ve never owned before!
