My conservatory makeover revealed

You may remember me sharing a post talking about my plans for my conservatory makeover a couple of months back, well after a few delays and quite a lot of changing my mind, it is finally the calm bright space I had hoped for. 

So today I thought I would share with you the finished result, the first of many rooms we are planning on renovating in the coming weeks and months.

Prior to the makeover the room was nothing but a bit of a dumping ground if I'm honest. It was full of the stuff that doesn't have a home, so the first job was to have a good old sort out, which included donating or selling a number of things. We then ripped up the tatty carpet to discover the floor underneath  had not been finished well so needed attention, which caused us a delay and more expensense. Once sorted we had this quality vinyl flooring laid, which totally transformed the space. I love how it looks and being vinyl rather than tiles is warm under foot.

When it came to furnishing the space, we basically started again, the only original item is a chair that was my late mother in laws, as the colour didn't fit in with my ideas for the room, I added a cosy faux fur throw and a mustard yellow cushion to bring it inline with my plans.

My plan for this room always featured this gorgeous navy blue velvet sofa, from Argos home, we also managed to pick it up at a reduced price so that was a bonus.
The room kind of grew around the sofa, I added the contrasting yellow cushions from Sainsbury home, as I love the two colours together. We then added a small side table from B&M and the Jute rug* from La redoute. I then shopped my home for pictures, plants and accessories.

Another important piece in this room is the Havsta display unit from Ikea, I have a number of treasures, either from my childhood  or that belonged to my late mother in law, that I wanted to display in this room rather than put in the loft out of sight. We also bought an ottoman from Dunelm for added storage and extra seating.

We are hoping to update the blinds at a later date but for now this room is finished, and has become a favourite spot for a cuppa in the morning. It think once building work starts on my kitchen this room may become a sanctuary from the mess.

If you can recommend any conservatory blinds companies please let me know in the comments, from early research its looking expensive.
