Living room revamp is complete, but don't let that fool you... I can guarantee that I will still find accessories at my favorite stores that I have to have. For now though, I am really becoming pleased with how different our living room looks since we've moved it.
Several months ago, my husband and I decided that it was time for us to buy some new living room furniture. There was nothing wrong with our other furniture... we just needed something with a lot more seating and something that would fill the room better. We both knew that we wanted a sectional because they are super comfortable and provide lots of places to sit for us and guests.
I knew that I wanted something that was a dark tan color. With plans of kids in our future, I knew that something darker would be good to hide anything stains that would be created by a mischievous child (or my husband).
So let me share some before and after pictures with you...
I really liked the color of our old furniture, especially with the fluffy white Pottery Barn pillows piled all over. If you know me, then you know I love pillows. I could buy twenty more for the couch, but I am restraining myself. Although there are a few that I have my eye on from PB, but you'll have to wait to see those until my Wish List post... stay tuned.
So here are the after pictures of the living room...
The sectional is substantially larger than the couches we previously had. So the pictures above the couch look so miniature, so it was obvious that those needed to go. I knew that I wanted to do a large gallery wall (I am obsessed!), so I bought a ton of frames from Target and some amazing prints from SS Print Shop.

|Still a work in progress-- only the small frames need to be filled.|
Other than adding a few pictures in the smaller frames, the only other thing that I want to add is a few more of the black/white striped throws from good ole IKEA.
Here are a few more pictures of some fun accessories that we have in the living room.

As I've mentioned before, I am no designer... I just pick out furniture and accessories that work best for my husband and myself. And I must say, I really love it!
So what do you think?!
