Fabric vs Faux Leather for your Living Room

When choosing your living room furniture have you thought about going with faux leather instead of the normal fabrics? Since moving into our new house last Summer I’m still debating on fabrics for the sofas. Plus I’m sure my husband would love a recliner to kick back and relax in.

In fact my mum is currently looking at reclining chairs for my elderly father. She only told me this yesterday as he needs a comfortable chair to sit in to ease his aches and pains. So I mentioned to her about Fenetic Wellbeing, who I’m working with on this post to highlight the pros of faux leather recliners. While browsing through reclining chairs with her online it seems that when it comes to style, practicality and durability faux leather seems to be a number one choice.

Arty Apple Personalised Wall Art Review

We left all of baby girls wall stickers on her old bedroom wall in our old house as they were too hard to get off without damaging the paintwork. So this is the perfect opportunity to have a hunt around for some new artwork and prints for her bedroom walls, and we have been very lucky in that Arty Apple came along and offered up a review of a product on her site we knew exactly what to choose – personalised wall art.

My New Home – #InteriorInspirations

On Friday we moved house, it was raining, not typical Summer weather at all, but this didn’t put a damper on how excited I was! I have been dreaming for months about how I want to design the interior of my new home. With it being Summer, I want that warm, fresh yet stylish look.

It’s a new build I’m moving into so the garden is going to be turfed, this means we won’t be able to use the garden for weeks while the turf settles in and the grass is nurtured to grow. This sounds like hell for me over the Summer months as the garden is my favourite place.

So I want to come up with lots of #InteriorInspirations ideas for keeping me sane inside this Summer. To start with I have created another mood board. I loved the last one I made on New Bedroom Ideas.

This mood board is full of Summer ideas and warm colours. I love the idea of picnics in the garden in the hotter months.
