My husband and I are on the verge of moving and I cannot wait to get into our new place!  We’re renting a furnished flat at the moment and the style is… erm… not to my taste to put it politely, so I’m very excited at the prospect of decorating and furnishing a house we can settle in.

We both agree that a great looking and comfortable sofa is a priority of ours so I’ve been searching far and wide for the perfect stylish piece to complement the space.  This one piece of furniture will determine the decor and colour scheme for the rest of the room so it feels like a big decision and I’m definitely feeling the pressure!  My Pinterest boards are overflowing with inspiration but now I’m faced with a completely blank canvas I’m struggling to pin down my style.

I need to relax and remind myself that I’m not designing a home for a photo shoot – I’m designing for real life and the good news is that there is no right or wrong answer – there’s only what’s right for us.

We’re no closer to a decision but, in the meantime, here are my pics of the most beautiful, stylish and practical pieces available at the moment.

I accidentally fell into the bridal industry while planning my own wedding and have never looked back! Three years later, I've had the pleasure of meeting some of the most inspiring women I know. I love my job as the PR rep for twobirds Bridesmaid and my appreciation for pretty weddings continues alongside an insatiable wanderlust and passion for beautiful design.
