OK, so here are some before and afters of the Living Room area. The Living Room and Dining Room are directly off the entry and open onto each other. I love how open and spacious the area feels! Not much to change in here, we darkened the floors, but left the exsisting wall color. I love the tray celilings that were here!
This living room is laid out almost exactly like my old living room, so it made the arrangement easy! This space is a little smaller, but I think it has a real cozy, cottage-y feel now! I was able to use all my favorite things, my large mirror and set of 4 seashell shadowboxes, all my french style chairs, etc...
For Thanksgiving, I am using my favorite Dear Lillie "give thanks" pillow, I paired it with the animal print fabric (soon to be made into a REAL pillow, right now it is wrapped around a pillow insert to give you the idea!).
Here are some photos looking onto the Dining Room, which is not finished yet...more about this room in my next post.
Right now, I am using my old Chinese blue and white lamps...not totally crazy about these in my all neutral room, but they will do for now!
Soon this room will be transformed for Christmas...so check back in a week or so!
