If there is one thing I was dreaming about for my home it was to have a comfortable and cozy sitting room with no TV. The type of a space where we could catch up with family and friends, cuddle with books in front of the fire place and finish emails in the evening while sipping on hot tea underneath the blankets. A no-tv space where coziness and connections are the focus!
If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you’ll notice that I never shared this part of my living room with you before. The reason being that this is where there was a big ugly tv and my old kijiji find that I always wanted to paint but never got to it. Two big brown and black pieces that were just blah.
But when I finally moved the tv to the basement to make room for my new small sofa I decided to paint that old piece of furniture too – and with the new mirror I think it looks absolutely gorgeous next to that blue velvet piece! It took me probably around three hours to paint it, and to be honest I still can’t understand why didn’t I do it before!
Here’s the before photo so you can see the transformation!
I also dreamed about a bold sofa for this room – a show stopper piece, dramatic yet timeless. Comfortable, but beautiful. I know it sounds as If I’m describing a unicorn but I found it!
The Sven Cascadia Blue velvet sofa from Article is everything that I was dreaming about and more: extremely soft and so comfortable, it looks elegant and timeless – yet the bold color brings drama and adds style to my small living room! I love how this velvet sofa feels and even more how it looks! The loose bolsters are such a chic feature and the upholstery is simply gorgeous!
I also added a new gallery wall here – the black and white and blue theme ties perfectly well with the Sven sofa, don’t you think? I usually like balancing the conceptual art with some graphic prints and a hit of colour- and so I have a mix of abstracts and pretty drawings on here. I absolutely love how it all ties up together!
Now every corner of this room makes me smile- and the new blue velvet piece is the perfect place to cuddle with tea in front of the fireplace!
