Living Room Redo

Well, we finally did it! We got up the gusto and painted the living room and hung the decorations. These aren't great pictures because it's been quite dreary outside these days and all is a little dark. I'll try to snap some more in better light if the sun shows its face again, but for now I just had to share! The color is a soft green called "Willow Wind". I want this house to be simple, a bit sparse but still cozy and homey. So I kept all the art on the wall (save for Jason's beautiful fishy that was begging to hang above the woodstove hearth) black and white and simple in arrangement. I've always loved red with green so I threw that in with the couch cover and the lamp shades we've had forever. When I get to it I'd like to buy some great print fabric at Marden's and give the old throw pillows some new life!...but those are details for later.
Now on to tackle the final project...Kitchen/Dining room! Sure we've done the heavy demo already. Now all it needs is some drywall patching, trim painted, walls painted, cabinets painted, one new drawer, a new countertop and some new hardware. Ya know, no biggie. At our pace, you can check back in about a year for those before an afters!

Three things of MANY: Your floors are to DIE for. I LOVE! LOVE! the trunk in front of your couch. And the window pane frame above your couch is SO cuper cute. Great job! Your place is lovely.

When I first read the title to your post, I thought it said Living Room Rodeo! I was expecting little girls cavorting on stick horses or something. But I have to agree, it looks really beautiful. Once again, you have done a great job decorating your home!

It looks wonderful! I can't wait for Jason's Grammie to see it. She is leaving for Florida on the 30th of October. I am so glad that you are still using Jason's childhool toybox in front of the couch! It looks perfect!! And I also love the floors!!!
