The key points were...
1. We need a rug. We knew this, just hadn't gotten around to it. Guess what? Mumma is going to shout us one. Yay!
2. We need to tie in the wicker from the Dining Space (pendant light and chairs) to the Family Room.
3. We need to choose a lamp shade.
4. We need something on the wall (my plan all along), or additional colour via cushions.
Later in the week, I found this image on Freedom's Facebook page. It brought EVERYTHING home for me in one fell swoop!

Now, as much as I love the round rug, and have been coveting it for some time, it isn't right for our sofa, so I'm looking at the one below instead.
I'm also planning on purchasing the basket and an, gasp, indoor plant. I've never hearted indoor plants, but this just looks and feels right!
I picked up a floor lamp in Bunnings, for the bargain price of $50, but the lamp shade was the wrong colour. I was planning to recover, but now that I've found the fabric below, I'm not so sure. I'm even starting to think that the lamp won't actually stay.
Now, as for the artwork above... It's kinda expensive... so, I've sourced this fabric and am planning to stretch it over a couple of canvases. Where there's a will, there's a way, so they say!
So, stay tuned for a big reveal soon!!
