Revamp Restyle Reveal – my living room reveal!

Hello and welcome to my project in the very exciting Revamp Restyle Reveal blog hop! Thanks to Kate Young for sending everyone my way following her bedroom reveal! If you’re new to Revamp Restyle Reveal, I introduced it in this post: 10 interior bloggers (including the amazing hosts Lisa Dawson, Bianca Hall and Oliver Thomas) revamped one room in their homes in one month with the help of 5 wonderful sponsors:, Amara, Maisons du Monde, Frenchic Furniture Paint and Earthborn Paints. The products that I used from the sponsors have all been highlighted below. I have absolutely loved following all the revamps over the past month whilst doing my own. After a very busy September, I’m delighted to show you my transformed living room. 

Before the revamp, this room was utterly uninspiring and quite frankly, embarrassing. I didn’t like being in it at all. The biggest problem was the decade-old, falling-apart ugly corner sofa that we were ‘making do’ with and using split as two medium sofas. Just so horrible 😝.

Anyway, now the room has been given a makeover, this is how it’s looking –

The gorgeous grey wall colour is Trilby, from Earthborn Paints. I used the Lifestyle emulsion which I found really great to use; it covered beautifully and is a durable and washable paint, perfect for a home with kids and/or pets. I painted all the woodwork in Trilby eggshell. This deep grey colour has totally changed the vibe in the room!

Maisons du Monde DUKE sofa

The beautiful comfy DUKE midnight blue 3 seater fabric sofa and stunning ZOLA graphic mustard yellow velvet cushion are from Maisons du Monde, and the fabulous Pols Potten gold curvy ceramic stool is from Amara. It is the loveliest feeling to sit back on this sofa with my feet up on the furry footstool 😊.

Butterfly style chair

I cosied up my SANTIAGO leather armchair from Maisons du Monde with an Icelandic sheepskin, a cushion and a pouffe. Yes, it really is as comfy as it looks! 😊

The ceiling light was found for a bargain in a sale and was originally copper, but I sprayed it gold as that is my preferred metallic, if you hadn’t already guessed. 😉

Brace yourself for another ‘Before’ 😬:

Aaaand AFTER:

Shall we take a closer look?

Pick a book and get comfortable…

… or put your feet up and switch on the telebox. The fantastic Samsung UE40MU6100 Smart 4K Ultra HD TV and Sony HT-MT300 bluetooth soundbar with wireless subwoofer from have truly transformed our TV experience; I honestly had no idea what I’d been missing until I received these!

One final ‘before’:
Living room before

Admittedly, the charcoal armchair is nothing to get excited about but it has plenty of life left in it and is actually really comfortable, so there was no reason to replace it. It looks much more inviting now with a gorgeous Icelandic sheepskin on it. I bought a retro cabinet on eBay and smartened it up with Frenchic furniture paint, using the Hornblower (dark blue) colour from the Lazy range (this paint has built-in wax so takes away the need to apply wax after painting).

On the cabinet, holding a pink hydrangea from my garden, is a pretty little gold glass vase from Maisons du Monde.

Every living room needs a lovely scented candle for a relaxing evening atmosphere and this incredibly beautiful Jasmine and Ylang Ylang candle from Amara gives a wonderfully balanced and soothing scent which I have been delighting in every evening.

I’m so happy with the room now. It feels lovely, cosy and relaxing… a place where you want to just kick back, cosy up, chill out, flick through a magazine/book or watch TV. For everyone who has been following my revamp on social media, I hope I have met your expectations ☺️. I’d love to know what you think in the comments below!

    • I love this Meera! Your styling of that Santiago chair is perfection! The colours are great and it all looks incredibly stylish. I’m feeling the need for an Icelandic sheepskin this winter 😀

  1. Meera, I don’t know how to say this without sounding cheesy, but I want that living room for myself! I like every single one of your choices. It’s impressive as well how a simple rearrangement can change the mood of the room. A room to be very proud of.

    • Hahaha you are so sweet Juan! That’s the biggest compliment, thank you very much! ☺️ And I have you to thank for many of the books dotted around the room! xx


  2. Oh Meera, I love everything about this room: the sofa, the cabinet, the chair and obviously the styling! And that table lamp is just gorgeous! You are so talented and I hope you know that 🙂
