Mini Makeover.... Our Living room

I am so excited to share the progress I've made in our downstairs den with you guys.  If I am being honest, this room gets seen a lot more than it gets used.  So, I wasn't afraid to go light in color and use pieces I really wanted.  Now don't get me wrong, when we have company over, such as hosting playgroup or when we have family in town, we all sit on the couch and in the chairs.  And I love cooking dinner and having this space so close so that I can still talk and see them while I am in the kitchen, but when it's just Todd, the kids, and I we usually go upstairs for the TV or pile in our bed downstairs.  And during the day the kids and I are either upstairs (in their playroom), outside, or by the pool. 

But enough with the rambling, let's start with a good before shot to really show you how far this little space has come. 

Before


After 


Sarah Swanson nailed it above the couch with what I had envisioned.  I love all her simple, yet beautiful art.  And talk about making the art pop, my friends at Framebridge did just that with their stunning frames.  I seriously can't tell you how amazing the quality of these frames are.  I will never have anything framed by anyone else again. 




 These pillows just make me happy, no really, I smile every time I walk by them :)  If you are in the market for new pillows I highly recommend the talented team at Motif pillows.  Their selection of colors and patterns are to die for.

  1. Gorgeous! Now come to my house and do mine please!lol I think a tall plant if space is available would look great by your chair by the wall with the mirror, like a fiddle fig or something with height. You did a great job, looks right out of a magazine! Thanks for sharing!

  2. The layout of the space now makes it seem much larger than when you had the other furniture in it. I love it - so bright and airy!

  3. The room is beautiful! Love the couch with the pictures above. I do agree the wall with the mirror needs something else. The mirror looks a little out if place or too small on that big wall. Everything else looks great!

  4. This is so gorgeous! Love all the colors and how bright the room is. How much are her smaller $10 prints to ship. I really like but saw she is in Canada and was wondering about shipping and couldn't find on her Etsy shop.

  6. Three questions: Is this jute rug soft enough to play on/crawl on? Do you have a rug pad underneath it? Can you vacuum it normally? I've been waiting for this living room reveal! Love it!
