A Sound Setup.

I wasn’t joking when I said I’d been organising in yesterday’s post! I love, love, love switching things up when it comes to my interiors, and I’m slowly starting to get back on track after our big renovations at the end of last year.

I got my camera out to shoot some of the progress for you, as most of the living room has completely changed since you last saw it. For one, we had our floors sanded down – you may remember that they were old, orange and thick with hideous varnish. They’re now a lovely soft beech, and they’ve really brightened the room!

The swoon-worthy rug is from Graham & Green, a great homewares store that I regularly browse. The black and white Aztec design is so airy, and in typical Kate fashion it goes with absolutely nothing in the room *pats back*
We already had one of these IKEA Cabinets before (on the other side of the room), but we decided to buy another to fit the wide wall. I love how minimal it is, and there’s loads of room for all my organised clutter.

I stacked up some old magazines and placed my much loved Marshall Acton Speaker on top – I spoke about this last year, but it really awesome. It fits with my white and gold decor, and it sounds amazing. We play the Crosley record player through it, and it’s totally improved the quality of the Crosley.

Next to it sits a Rifle Paper Co. print which I’ve finally framed! This sat in the plastic sleeve for a year or so, so it felt good to frame it! I added a little Rifle card too, just for some colour.

The beautiful gold ‘love’ sign is of course a West Elm find – I feel like I might need another of these as they’re just so pretty! I paired it with a brass hex plant pot and tiny cacti ornament for an added somethin’ somethin’ – both of these are from Holly’s House.

It’s a simple but cute setup that has added a bit of charm to our space, combining my love for metallic details with Jordan’s love of monochrome and music! We usually pick a playlist, connect to the Marshall speaker via Bluetooth and sit and chat with cups of coffee. A perfect Sunday, if you ask me!

What do you think of this space?
