Room Rescue week 6: Moira's living room makeover
This is the beautiful winning Moira Lounge Giraffes! by Lisa R, created by community member Lisa R and picked by the owner of the original room, Moira. The room will be featured in The Telegraph on Saturday 14th November so Lisa will get the attention she deserves for her design talent!
We love the fresh Autumnal hues and bold retro prints which really bring the room to life. The wooden furnishings and giraffe art also give the room a modern, tribal look.
Kelly Hoppen says of this design; 'The saving grace of this design is the sofa. The green chairs are very unusual and I quite like them. I would rip out the fireplace and I really don’t like the carpet.' Well, it's not up to her is it? It's Moira's choice. And anyway, the carpet isn't carpet - it's rugs!
Moira says of why she chose this design; 'I must confess it has been difficult making a choice as there is not one single design I would really really choose. There are features in several I like but not always the combinations shown. So the two I quite like are the ....Giraffes ....because it is fresh, colourful and would be quite cosy with the fire on! It makes good use of the space without being clutterd.Think I would choose a different colour of sofa - not my favourite green. Plus having been to Africa several times I am very fond of giraffes! But my daughter likes Funkyliscious front room. by rt01268 (by user rt01268), which I like too especially for its colour scheme. But sadly it doesn't seem to be quite finished especially with the TV behind the vase?'
Whilst the decision is up to Moira, she probably doesn't know how tricky the 3D planner can be in balancing objects on top of one another.. Do you agree with Moira? Please leave a comment below!
Here is the room 'before':
Moira said of the original room: “We have been in our house for 5 years and feel as though the lounge needs a revamp! Trying to persuade my husband is another matter - he is too busy with other jobs and not keen to tackle redecorating right now. We live in a beautiful spot in the north of Scotland not far from Inverness. One consideration re design is that we have two teenagers!”
