Every year, when Spring rolls around, I find myself wanting to update my living room with the latest colours, textures, and accessories. And this year I’ve been well and truly drawn towards all the gorgeous rose gold and marble bits and pieces I’ve found when shopping on the high street.
For today’s post I thought I’d share a little bit of living room inspiration featuring the two, and talk you through how I’d update my own living room to incorporate them. I hope you’re sitting comfortably, as I feel this may end up being a long one. So, without further ado, let’s jump right in. You guys are going to love it!!
First up, I’ve picked out this gorgeous ash grey 3 seater sofa from DFS. I absolutely love the colour of it and think it would look fab surrounded by rose gold and marble accessories. At just £399, this particular sofa isn’t going to break the bank. And from the reviews I’ve read online, people who have recently purchased the sofa say it’s super comfy and adds style and panache to their living rooms. It’s clearly a winning piece!
I’ve recently found myself shopping for a lot of my homewares at Wilko’s. And as they have loads of beautiful rose gold coloured accessories in store at the moment I just knew I had to include some of them in this post! I’m currently in love with their selection of cushions and think all 3 of the ones in the image above would work well in a living room with this particular colour scheme. My favourite just has to be the neutral coloured cushion with metallic hearts. I think next time I’m in town I’m going to pick a couple up to put on my own sofa. And how cute is the cushion with the bunny?!
I’m a big fan of having a side table next to the chairs or sofa’s in my living room. I think it’s because I drink a lot of tea and need somewhere to put my mug! The one I have my eye on at the moment is from Graham and Green, and it has an aluminium three-legged base inspired by honeycombs and a stunning marble tabletop. I can just imagine this sitting in my living room, and think it would be admired by friends and family whenever they came to visit.
Anyone who knows me well will tell you that I like to try and do things a little differently to everyone else when it comes to home decor. So instead of having shelves in my living room at the moment, I’m looking at getting a 3 tiered trolley/bar cart similar to this one from Harrods to use instead. I think it would be the perfect place to keep things like my current reading book, throws for when I’m a little chilly in the evening, or even a vase of flowers. What do you guys think?
When I was a teenager, I had a sunburst wall mirror that I absolutely loved. I have no idea what happened to it when I moved out of my parent’s house, but I was gutted that it had gone missing. The sunburst mirror has really made a comeback recently, and I’m desperate to get hold of one for my living room. I think this particular one from Not on the High Street would look stunning with the other rose gold and marble accessories I’ve mentioned in my post, and it would be sure to be a major talking point whenever anyone came to visit.
Another piece from Wilko that I have my eye on is this stunning marble and copper effect clock. Isn’t it beautiful? It’s just perfect for adding a soft, classic touch to your living space. The marble effect face is beautifully offset by a copper effect outer rim and hands, and despite not being a rose gold shade I still think it would work well with this particular colour scheme. I’m actually considering picking up two of these as I currently have a copper kitchen and think it would look great in both rooms!
I think I’ve mentioned before that I hate sitting under harsh ceiling lights at night time, so I like to make sure that I have a lamp or two scattered around my living room to turn on instead. At the moment, I have my eye on this beautiful table lamp with a marble base from – yes, you guessed it – Wilko! The lamp is crafted from concrete, with a beautiful marble-effect finish that really accentuates the on-trend urban look. It comes complete with a neutral coloured faux-linen shade and would look amazing in a rose gold and marble living room. What’s not to love about it?!
I picked up this gorgeous copper ‘Home’ word block when I was shopping in Wilko a couple of weeks ago, and I absolutely love it! It definitely looks more rose gold than copper, and it’s great for brightening up sideboards, windowsills, bar carts or mantelpieces. I love how they’ve changed the letter ‘O’ from the word ‘Home’ to a heart shape, and the handwritten scroll is right up my street. Can you believe it’s just £4?! It definitely looks a lot more expensive.
I love bringing a bit of the outdoors in at this time of year, and what better way to do it than with this gorgeous meadow flower canvas from Wilko? Featuring a field of daisies blowing in the breeze, this wall art is sure to freshen up your living space wherever it’s hung. I can certainly imagine this piece hanging in my own living room. It’s a beaut!
Another way to bring the outdoors in this spring is to fill a vase with fresh or artificial flowers. And I’m sure there’s no nicer vase out there at the moment than this rose gold ombre one from Wilko! I think it would look stunning on the hex side table with the marble top that I mentioned earlier. There’s also a pink and grey version of this vase available that I think is equally as beautiful. I’d love to know if you guys agree.
And last but certainly not least, no room is complete without some sort of window covering. And at the moment I’m crazy about Thomas Sanderson Window Shutters! I just love how stylish they are, and I think some classic white wooden shutters would love amazing alongside rose gold and marble accessories. I always choose Thomas Sanderson when I’m shopping for window shutters because their products are handmade in Britain, and have 5-star unrivalled products. What’s not to love?!
And there you have it, my rose gold and marble living room inspiration for 2018! I hope you enjoyed having a read, and that it provided you with some new ideas for updating your living room this Spring.
