Living Space Decor Inspiration by Shelley Louise Design


Whether you’ve recently moved home or are simply looking to revitalise your current space, we’ve put together a little decoration inspiration for you! We’ll get around to every room in the house, but today we’re starting with the living area.

The living area is without a doubt one of the most important spaces in the home. It’s where we spend most of our time, relaxing after work and spending time with our families. It makes sense, then, that the living room should be a tranquil, welcoming space, somewhere we can switch our minds off.

Your home might be open-plan, like the one above, or totally separate. Whatever your space looks like, we’ve taken inspiration from the gorgeous photo above and chosen products to recreate that clean, tranquil vibe.

The Perfect Scent

Scent is so important for creating the perfect atmosphere. Our Signature Scented Reed Diffuser will permeate your living space with premium fragrance for up to six weeks. Enjoy the mellow floral tones uplifted with zingy limes while unwinding after work. Presented in an understated yet stylish frosted glass bottle, it will only add to the tranquil look of your living space.

The Colourful Vase

A splash of green can add a fresh, vibrant feel to an otherwise monochrome living space. We love the fluid green and blue hues of this gorgeous vase.

The Monochrome Print

A bold monochrome print really ties your living space together. But why go for a generic black and white print? PaperCutterJohn is a local North East artist who creates stunning, handmade papercuts. You’ll find plenty of your favourite North East spots recreated in paper – including our favourite Bamburgh Castle!

The Dining Chair

Forget uncomfortable dining chairs, these sleek dove grey dining chairs from Fire & Co are the cushiony goodness you deserve. Fire & Co are another North East Company with an incredible array of home furnishings. Their Jarrow showroom has recently reopened following Covid-19 guidelines, so do pop down or shop online!

The Side Table

A lot of side tables can be boxy and clunky, taking up too much space in your living area. This elegant side table will help keep your space looking clean and uncluttered. We love the classy marble top and pared-down design.
