Californian Cottage Living Room

3b0a3d9050e97a1b49206eabf92ec734Apart from the bright, airiness, my main draw to this room found on Pinterest was the books on the coffee table- a couple of which I have owned for many years and used as part of my dissertation in my final year of University.

A bit more work, but with a box of bits and tutorials a click away, you can create something by hand and at a fraction of the price of buying new


1 My go-to easy cushion cover tutorial, in aqua dot fabric:

2 The pale green lamp really compliments the rest of the colour scheme and stops it from being too match-y. Plasti-kote do a spray paint suitable for all materials, the pistachio would completely change the look of a plain glass table lamp like ‘Ijusas’ from Ikea

3 Just like the home-owner in the photo, roller blinds can be hand made in large grey chevron fabric following a tutorial like this on on DesignSponge
