Day Dreaming about updating the Decor

Just the other day I was sat thinking I'd like to update our lounge. It was only decorated less then two and a half years ago but I fancy a change. Currently decorated in pale teal, beige and browns I do like it but I no longer love it! We had new carpets throughout back then and chose a neutral colour so that can stay. 

The sofa is looking tired and although practical being leather, I now quite fancy something more feminine and cosy. Of course with two small boys a girl can dream! Actually add another male and there's no chance my pinterest board below will come to fruition for some years to come.

A girl can still dream. Right?

I think I'd go for pale blue this time round. I think it looks soft, cosy and clean. I'm desperate for an oak sideboard and matching TV cabinet. We have matching pine units now but they have been knocked and marked and lets face it pine is a thing of the past! I want to hide away DVDs, books and bits and pieces so a sideboard seems to be the way forward. I'd also like more surfaces to display family photo's and place vases on.

Something like this one.
This matching TV cabinet would look great in the corner where our TV sits.
I just love this colour combination from a range in Next. It would really compliment the oak furniture. 
Perhaps in another few years time when the monkeys are older and are less inclined to climb or spill we can think about putting my plans into motion. I really hope so! I'm all for accessorising with cushions, rugs, flowers and so on and get quite excited putting it all together. I won't wish the monkeys childhood away just yet though!

What colour way would you choose for your lounge? Something quiet and contemporary or way out and wacky?
