Autumn Decor Update with #AWsomeGeorge

#AWsomeGeorge thumbnail


Our lounge is sadly a little neglected. It’s a brilliant space at the front of the house and over the last ten years that we have lived here, it’s served many different purposes; a study, a junk / store room, a craft room and now it’s our lounge and in desperate need of a makeover.

We recently bought a new sofa in a beautiful mint colour so naturally, our lounge is going to be redecorated with a selection of colours that blend well with the sofa. As we can’t really afford to redecorate the whole room this side of Christmas, one way to freshen up the decor is to change the accessories in the room and this season I am copper obsessed. Copper is really popular at the moment and this pleases me no end as there’s plenty of opportunities to pick and choose different styles to match the home.

George at Asda have a wonderful selection of copper home accessories and I have loved selecting items for my new look lounge.

  1. Copper Pendant Light Shade
  2. Hammered Copper Vase
  3. Copper Finish Double Bell Alarm Clock
  4. Large Duck Egg Check Cushions
  5. Copper Trinket Box
  6. Orange Check Throw

I’ve put the accessories in place around the lounge and this has inspired me to make an effort to crack on with the redecorating plans. The next steps are to steam off the wallpaper and get the room re-plastered. Once I’ve chosen the paint from a selection of my favourite colours (and persuaded hubby that these strong colours will work alongside our new sofa!) it’s just finding the time to get it all done. I can’t wait to bring the room together, it really does deserve some TLC. It’s one of the main rooms we use as a family so I can’t wait to get it all freshly painted and pick out some new furniture to finish the room off.

Do you love the copper look? What’s your favourite style this Autumn?

Huge thanks to George at Asda for partnering with me for this post.

    I do love the copper look, but I don’t like the cleaning of it lol. I remember when I was a child every Sunday morning it was my job to clean my mother’s collection with Brasso Polish. We all had our pocket money jobs to do and this was mine! You have chosen a beautiful selection there.

    I do love the copper look. They have some items in my local shop & I have been sorely tempted to buy some. I especially love the hammered copper vase.
