Lounge & hallway makeover

After months of waiting, we have finally finished our lounge and hallway makeover! I wanted to create a botanical retreat which is relaxing and I feel that is what we have achieved. My hubby at first did say 'it's very green' - but the green has been toned down with the warm wood accessories and gold hints - which seems to work perfectly.

We chose the bold Botany Banana wallpaper by LEMON for the hallway, then repeated the theme in the lounge in the upcycled drawer shelves. Having the wallpaper on the lounge walls as well would have been way too over-powering, so we decided this was the best option. The room is full of 'world traveller' themed ornaments and items which mean something to us, which really add character. Please feel free to take a look at the images below of the finished results!
