The fireplace tile is in!
The walls are painted!
The new throw pillows are fluffed!
All in time for the living room wall to get knocked down to make way for the new sunroom, whaaa, whaaamp. But that’s ok, I’m too excited about the new sunroom to care about the disaster it’s going to make this room.
Before it’s a total mess let’s take a little tour of the new living room decor! Although I’m sure in another 2 months it will look completely different, since I know some of the things in here will be relocating to the sunroom.
Remember this all started with me going to the hardware store for drywall anchors and ended up with me painting my living room? Just another day in the life, here’s the before color again…
I wanted a bit more neutral blue. I didn’t want to be so locked into the teal-ish tint of the blue in the sunroom. I felt like this room just needed a bit more fun and color!
The new blue just takes it down a notch, literally, it was just one notch down on the paint chip, I went with Brittany Blue by Benjamin Moore. I love how well it works with red, green, yellow, navy. It’s the perfect neutral blue for in here.
And the tile, yeah! Oh my goodness, you all know how long I waited for this stuff. I’m so happy with the change, it feels so much more comfy and casual in here now. It just feels like more us.
Here’s a close up…
This painting is hanging out here for the summer on loan from my mom’s house. It’s nice we both like to rotate our mantels so we did a little swap. Speaking of swap, remember how I’m helping my mom with her room makeover? We decided her wicker chairs that I had been borrowing from storage would look great back in her room now, so off they went (it was a sad day at our house)….but I found these weathered grey ones at Ikea that I actually like even better than hers. So it all worked out.
I’ll be sharing more summer decor later in the week with my whole summer tour, so be sure to stop back for that!
And of course more updates on the sunroom soon, including some of my lighting and flooring selections.
