The house caters for 8 people but has often a tribe of young children running around, entering the house from our side to another, spreading sand from the beach to eventually collapse on our large sofa in front of the TV.
As I did not intend to have a nervous breakdown each time we were there, I deliberately kept the interior design of the house simple and low maintenance when I re-decorated the house a few years ago.
Failing to find an affordable, contemporary designer sofa in grey which was my first choice (and under pressure from the CFO of the house to stick to our budget), I went for a large, modulable dark brown sofa from the Swedish giant – which is ok and comfortable but looking at these inspiring interiors in hues of greys, whites and wood, I really wish I could change our sofa to a grey one now. Anyone else in the mood to change their sofa?

I’m on the lookout for a new sofa, preferably in charcoal, but I think it’s hard to find anything I like… Bear in mind, I’m very, very picky (and I think I have a right to be! :) ). I’ve looked at everything from Ikea to Lombok (topping my list at the minute) and I’m just about ready to give up… Any advice please? Thanks :) Tracy
I like this one from Interior Addict http://www.interioraddict.com/designer-dining-tables-c1/antonio-citterio-charlie-fabric-modular-sofa-p325 but it’s a reproduction so it depends how you feel about that.
I also discover this other site recently http://camerich.co.uk/?gclid=CImwj6uCzbYCFYHHtAodCB8AeA and they have a shop in Islington.
Our sofa is still good but seeing your post triggered that desire to change it. But then, it’s kinda challenging to find the one that best suits the taste, needs and budget.
That’s brilliant! Thanks very much for your help :)
may be keep the couch buy a new washable cover (BEMZ) for it?
@Unknown BEMZ is that the company that can do any cover for any Ikea sofas??
Nice Post..!! Nice information you shared here because at the time to choose some interior service people get confused and your pictures make this post alive.
Thanks for the great list, I’m always looking for more inspiration for my journey to being much better at interior design, thank you!
I notice that your rug & table look quite hard wearing too against the wear and tear of people coming in from the beach, but they look wonderful too, adding a nice touch to the room.
nice but decorate your home with comfort its really hard bcoz when you decorate your home your only focus on designing not on comfort and its also a big part of home interior decoration.
