A botanical living room

This was another of the room sets at this year's Ideal Home Show that I was drawn to. It's an elegant space and I loved the greens matched with the slate grey of the lamp and the curtains.

In truth I'd love to get that relaxed and stylish finish to a sofa with the cushions and the throw.  Somehow mine never looks quite this good, there's definitely an art to it I think.

The light is definitely a statement piece and the matt finish on the outside is complemented by the shiny copper interior. Stunning isn't it?

The botanical theme is continued with prints either side of the window.  A leaf print on the left as you look at it and forests on the right.  Similar to the glamorous bathroom the brass tables add a touch of elegance.

MOH would like both a coffee table and a pouffe, but with the space we have neither really work. It's not that I don't like them - who wouldn't like this lush green footstool - they'd be things to walk round, and into our spiral staircase.  I fear the bumped heads and the bruises!

The panelling contains geometric wallpaper which gives the wall some texture.  I did smile when I saw the cables in the photo below. Even in a room set there's attention to detail like having things plugged in.  I'd hope though that in most homes they're better hidden.

It's a lovely fresh room and there's touches and pieces in it that are stunning.  Lots of them are everyday items but combined like this, they really work together.  What do you think?
