Finally, Full Living Room Reveal!


I've been want to post pictures of everything I've changed in the living room, but I had an order of pillow covers that just never wanted to be delivered.  Then finally, they arrived!  Glad that's over.  I hate waiting for my orders to show up, the whole if and when can be a little unnerving. 

That is one nice thing about going shopping, you bring your purchases home the same day, but some times I find better deals online and some items you just can't buy at a chain store. 

Well, finally I  can show you what the downstairs looks like today!  Here are a few before to show you what I've changed exactly.  I really just wanted to tone down some of the red.  I still love red, and will continue to decorate with it, it will just be in smaller doses! 

Red curtains before, colorful pillows galore.

My big red ladies, sorry I was taking a picture of the trunk and I cut off their heads.  Oops!

Red prints that I bought to literally fill the space, I was never in LOVE with them.  They are not missed.

Last night before I went to bed I snapped this one.  Lighter curtains, and pillows.  I kept the red throw, cause it's too soft, and I didn't want to get rid of all the red.

I took this from the dining room, my red ladies have been replace by my barn photo collection.   Do you see my sad lone St. Patty's Day decoration over the fireplace?  Sad I know.

Then I decided to take a few shots this morning with natural light, and lets face it, I'm not a photographer.  I think I'm gonna have my dad take pictures of my house next time he visits so I can have some good ones!

Now the red prints have been replaced by pillow panels.  Cool, huh?  I love how they look like grain sacks.  I framed them in the same barn wood frames I used for the barn photos.  Still not loving the lay out on the buffet, but I'm working on it.

Here's the dining room, nothing has really changed in here.  I just wanted to give you a larger view with my new art work.

I'm so glad those dang pillow covers finally arrived so I could show you the entire room.  I'm going to have to work on my patience, turns out it's not a virture of mine!  Thanks for coming by! xx

I love how you lightened up the living room. It looks great! The red curtains were nice, but the room looks bigger, cleaner and brighter with the lighter curtains. I also love that you have shades underneath them. I want to do that in my house too. Did you get that from Young House Love?
