Decor Edit: Ethnic Luxe Living Room Inspiration

You might have heard me mention I’m in the process of buying an apartment, if you haven’t, hello? Where’ve you been?

I’m buying a cute little 2 bed apartment, that is just the perfect space and size for me, so for the last few weeks my head has been full of décor ideas. There’s just way too many to choose from!

Do I go floral/gypsy chic? Do I go cool white minimal? Do I go colour pop crazy? Choices maaaaan. It’s hard.

This room will be used a.lot. it will be home to film nights on the sofa, catch ups over a cup of tea, a place to read, a place to eat, a place to watch tv… the list goes on. I basically need it to be stylish and reflect my taste, while being functional and flexible at the same time.

These are some of my favourite themes and styles I’ve been stalking on Pinterest for the last few weeks.


I tend to be drawn to styles like this a lot.

I love the mint green sofa, black and white accents and the eclectic mix of accessories. Scheme goals right here.Living Room Inspiration 1

This half painted wall is just dreamy. I love the subtle colours mixed with the minimal accessories and cool feature wall. Living Room Inspiration 3

I also adore schemes like this – everything looks so mismatched but perfectly coordinated at the same time. A dream.Living Room Inspiration 2

This space is slightly more functional with a desk area at the back. I’m going to have to fit a small dining table in my living room, so I need to think about how I can differentiate between the two areas.

These shelves are such a clever way to create the illusion of a a built in bookcase. I love the cosy colours in this scheme too. This is exactly the cool and calm I’m looking for. I think I want to keep the walls quite neutral, so a scheme like this could easily be changed up when the mood hits!

I’m currently pinning like crazy on Pinterest so if you want to keep track of other ideas I’m pinning, come find me and say hey!

I’m excited for this new venture! Bring on the styling!

What is the most important or favourite feature of your living room space?
