Room styling: white, yellow & grey living room

I LOVE creating new looks and styling rooms, which is why I am having such fun creating our new home at the moment. So far I have had a great time and a lot of luck with bargain hunting to find the perfect objects, soft furnishings and wallpaper to design my living room. I'm going for yellow (my absolute favourite colour!), grey and white to create a fresh, bright and cosy feel for our waterside home. Here are a few of my fab finds so far...once my lovely postie has delivered them all and I've found the right spot for them all I'll post some photos for you to see. Let me know what you think!

Funky yellow ceramic birdie doorknobs, Mit Hus
I would have been prepared to pay good money for these knobs (I adore them!), which are going to go on the drawers of a small chest I have just finished painting in off white and grey. However when I ordered them they were half price yay!

Soft grey & white spotty merino lambswool cushions, Bronte
I came across Bronte a while ago at a design fair and fell in love with the quality and cosiness of their soft furnishings. When looking for cushions, I found these dotty ones reduced on Achica, so I had no excuse not to buy them, well they were reduced by about 60% *smile*

Rosehip fabric, Scion 
This funky Rosehip fabric by Scion will be the material for my roman blinds, which are currently being made. A depiction of rosehips and leaves on a simple stem is the perfect design to bring life and pattern to the room. I can't wait to hang them.

Yellow silk cushion, John Lewis
These vibrant faint slub textured knife edged yellow silk cushions will inject some simple luxury and shimmer to my sofa.

Matching grey & white spotty merino lambswool throw, Bronte

Part of me can't wait for the darker, colder nights to come in so I can snuggle up under this throw. It arrived yesterday and it really is so soft and cuddly. I'm sure to need it, the house was built in 1860 and has mega draughty windows and doors!

Groovy yellow glass vases, IKEA
I already had this mouth blown, hand crafted vase in my last house. However I accidentally packed it and it is now stored away with the majority of my belongings that wouldn't fit in this last week I bought another one. For £5 you can't really complain and anyway, a yellow loving girl can never have too many yellow I just have to hope I get some beautiful blooms for my birthday next week!

Last but not least is this amazing wallpaper. Don't you just love it? I ripped a huge sample in a store recently so I could frame it but I cannot for the life of me remember where I got it. I have spent ages online today searching for it with no luck. Please, if you know who the manufacturer is or where I can buy it please let me know, I would love some more, thank you.

So, I hope you like how things are coming together in the living room. I'll post some piccies soon.

Buy for now.
