Living room progress

Hello everyone! Hope you are all well, things have gone a bit quiet on the house front here as I am finishing my dissertation and revising! So I thought I would just post a quick moodboard I put together for the lounge and get your opinions.

The pattern in the background is wallpaper which we are using, and our sofa is grey:

I decided I wanted to add pops of colour as well as black white and grey, and I think I have decided on blue (hence the colour card on the moodboard). Let me know what you think, I was considering yellow too but the dining area has pops of purple.

All opinions and suggestions are totally welcome so please leave a comment!

  1. I like the idea of pops of yellow but since you have purple I would stay with the blue you picked out....I think it will be awesome when you finish!

  2. Hello! I love your colors! I also think yellow is a great accent color! I'm using it in my guest room. I would love to see your living room reveal :)

  3. Both are great accent colors. Personally I think blue/purple will look more traditional and yellow will look more modern. You could always grab a few cheap accessories in both colors and try both out, then return whichever color doesn't work for you. Your textiles and wallpaper look great, by the way!

  4. I like your choice's a blue gray wall will be pretty. Trish

  5. I love the colors too!
