The Living Room.
Ok, maybe this isn’t a HGTV special but I couldn’t think of a better title for this post about the updates I’ve done around the house. Last week, it snowed a good bit for Louisiana which prevented me from going in to the office. Here in Louisiana, we don’t get snow frequently which means we’re not equipped with the necessities to handle that type of weather. So, the weather pretty much kept me inside with four children. To keep myself sane, I painted my living room.
The previous color wasn’t that bad — a cornflower-y beige. But it was just toooooo yellow for me.
So, with all the time that I had, I decided to go with a darker color.
I’m in love with the color, which is also the same color of my bathroom. I’m not sure if I want to take this color all the way into the dining area, but I’m thinking about it and then painting the kitchen in a maroon/deep red color. Decisions.. decisions.
I also plan to switch out the rug for a patterned one, the valence for drapes, and get new throw pillows. Unfortunately, we don’t have an IKEA in Louisiana and they don’t shop here so I’m going to have to get creative and really shop around. The goal is to have the inside completely done before Spring time so I can devote that to the outside for plants. That’s the fun part.
This whole updating process has been a good bit of work, especially installing the wood blinds. But I can say that feels nice when you start to see everything come together.
This weekend will be spent making paper-mache landforms for my daughter’s project and reading for class next week. Have a great weekend guys!
