You may remember this blog...well with my bff's help (thanks by the way!) we made it happen...all under $100. You know, since I don't work anymore. I needed color in my life in a cheap way! I have nothing against reds, but no mas en mi casa! Too Kirklandish. I love the store but have you ever walked in and felt as though you threw up dark reds and oranges? Yeah, you know I'm so right! Well, I wanted to move away from that and I decided to use my favorite colors. Our living room needed a major change and change is good. My living room was depressed.
So, here are the before and the afters....
|and windows with no curtains...too simple.|
|Red shag carpet, red pillows, red paintings, red stuff on the fireplace|
|So fresh, crisp, and clean huh?! so pretty and feels a little more open.|
Notice I added the two iron gate looking things to replace the mirror above fireplace (used to be on floor), I changed the candles to a light blue color. I love my fireplace now. Also notice I added decorative blue and green balls to our coffee table. :)
|Changed pillows from solid reds to blue designer pillows.|
Took out red shaggy carpet to open the room a little more.
|Added family pictures...|
|The other side of the room. I took the mirror that was above fireplace to this wall. |
It's still a little plain, but better than nothing.
|And one more look at the main area of our living room.|
