Home updates {living room}

Hi friends!

Our recently revamped living room has been finished for a few weeks, but I am just now getting the chance to upload them. As a reminder, this is what we started out with.

living room 1

The photo above was taken after we’d already started moving things around, but our media shelf was catty-corner to the right of the fireplace. The mantle had a small gallery of photos and pictures. It felt cluttered and unorganized so we were desperate to find a good solution.

And now we have this:

Living room 9

Mounting the TV was the best decision. It eliminated all the ugly wiring and made everything look cleaner. We added the two shelves on each side (from Ikea) for storage.

The paint color we chose was Glidden’s Cloud Motif. It’s exactly what I wanted for the space…it gives the room a light and airy feel.

I love the way our new chairs tie into the space. (They were from Target and the pillow covers were from GroopDealz).

LivingRoom 3I had the best time picking out all the right accessories. I found the garden box at a cute antique store while visiting my parents in Columbus, Ohio.

Living room 8

I found the letter opener during our recent trip to Savannah.

Living room 7I found a few baskets from HomeGoods which worked perfectly for DVDs.

Living Room 6

Chloe loves the new space. It’s perfect for her long naps. 🙂

living room 10We still plan on adding a pictures and of course, a new sofa is on our list for the fall. The new coffee table will be coming soon as well. Other than that, I hope to add some really simple curtains (perhaps some burlap valances?). I know the room will never be completely finished; I am always going to be making small changes here and there!

Overall, we are really pleased with how everything turned out.
