My Living Room



Going through some of my older photographs last night I stumbled across this one. It was taken by the very talented Anna Spiro of Absolutely Beautiful Things. She visited my house last year for little (big) party I had. This photo really sums up my decorating style and I thought I should share it with you today. We have many sofas and chairs in our main living area. Most are mismatched. Most are from cheap stores (like Ikea), second hand stores and Ebay ( got the wing back for $100). I wanted to create a space that made people feel at home as soon as they walked in. What do you think?

  1. From what I see you achieved that... I love it. Fresh, inviting and creative, comfi and happy, what more could I say, well that the wing back chair is really neat (including the pillow).

  3. Simone, this is beautiful! I thought it was a picture from a magazine not your house!!! I have to say, I lived on the sunshine Coast for a year and I didn't ever see a house with any real character if I'm honest! Some of the architecture was gorgoues but inside the houses were all really plain. You've created so much style...a really sunny and gorgeous room.

  5. I think your living room is gorgeous! I love the fact that the furniture doesn't match - it makes the room so much more interesting and personal. Would love to see more, please!
