A couple of weeks ago I talked about how I was going to reclaim some of the house back. I made bold claims about turning our guest room into an office/gym. Well, I have only gone and made a start! We decided that we would still need somewhere for our guests to stay. We debated asking them to stay in our shed, but we didn’t think that would go down too well. Therefore, we decided that we needed a sofa bed. I spent a lot of time researching sofa beds and I have come to the realisation that sofa beds can be quite expensive. I realised this after we had already taken the guest bed to the tip! We decided that we wanted one where the mattress comes up from the base of the sofa. Typically, this type of sofa bed is more expensive. It was also important that the mattress was a decent size. When looking we realised that a lot of sofa beds are actually a very small double, or in some cases, I would even describe them as a slightly bigger single.
Living on Jersey means we are restricted to where we can order our furniture from. Luckily, Made.com deliver to Jersey. Hurrah!
We spotted this sofa in the Made.com sale the other day. It had over a hundred pounds off it! Now this wasn’t the colour I was looking for as we already have a brown sofa in our living room. However, the saving was too good to ignore. Also, brown is very practical. We love this sofa bed as it has a simple pull out mechanism meaning that we can transform the sofa into a bed very quickly.
I am now thinking of colours that would work well with the brown sofa. I am worried that the sofa will make my office seem very dark. Therefore, I want a bright and beautiful colour that will lift the sofa and the room. Teal and brown are a fantastic colour combination and could work really well in our space. I am thinking some nice teal cushions on the sofa, perhaps some artwork featuring teal. I am also debating painting one wall a very light blue colour. What do you think? The colours are very cool and therefore I should find them calming. They are the perfect combination for an office as they should help focus my mind. Well, I can hope!
Please note that Made.com very kindly gave me a small discount
