Home Style: A Lilac & Silver Update

I've recently freshened up my living room with some new curtains, a rug and accessories. For the first two years of living here, I filled the room with orange, wooden and gold accessories with thick cream curtains. The room felt lovely and cosy, but this summer it was time for a change. I decided to go with mauve/lilac and silver.

I have a couple of the items from this wishlist, but the table lamp is something I really need to buy! It's from Next and is really pretty. I also stocked up on a couple of the plain mirrored photo frames from Wilkinson's as shown in the photo. These are really cheap (I think only £2 for the 6x4 size) and look pretty with more detailed frames next to them. They keep the silver theme running nicely!

Most of the accessories I bought are named "mauve" in stores - I wanted to keep the purple shades quite light...

We picked up this rug in Dunelm and it's lovely and soft whilst also looking pretty and bringing a good chunk of colour into the room (again my carpet is just plain cream). 

I don't think it's quite as dark in real life as it looks here. It feels good under your feet though, and there are lots of colours to choose from :)

What colours do you use in your favourite room?


  1. I am moving soon and I was thinking of doing a mauve theme as well. Love your picks.

    1. Thank you. I think it's a lovely colour, it has a relaxed feel :) x

  2. Love the string lights =]

    1. Me too, string lights make any room feel cosier :) x

  3. I'm a sucker for anything homeware related, so I enjoyed this post a lot. I LOVE that rug, it outshines my boring beige one anyday! I also love the colour theme you are running with as everything is really delicate but will also brighten up the room. (Also fairy lights are a MUST) xx
