So I alluded to getting some help from a bee friend here. Well, guess what? That help has arrived! Kristin of Bien Living and I have been communicating about ideas for our living room. I sent her some pictures and an elementary word document with the specs of our living room, and she came back with a beautiful design board and layout for our “new” living room.
I told her what colors I like (grey, blue, green, yellow, white), and my budget and she took all of that to heart. The great thing about this is that I can slowly add things into our space as budget and time allow and I will have a well-designed living room to walk into everyday.
I know you want me to be quiet and show the design already, so I’ll oblige. Here is the design board:
And here is the layout:
And because I’m sure it’s impossible to envision this beautiful design without knowing what our current space looks like, I’ll share that too:
We already started with the curtains. We took down the ugly blinds that were there and replaced those with beautiful flowing white curtains. Next, I want to tackle the fireplace. I am hoping to tile the black part with these and get rid of the doors. I’m not sure exactly how that will work, but maybe I can ask some people at one of the design/home renovation stores around me for some help. Stay tuned!!
