Living/Dining Makeover Reveal

The living/dining area is all painted, and the drapes have been hemmed and hung, so I finally had time to accessorize the room.  My favorite part.

 I am loving the new white walls and the beautiful new cream/tan stripe drapes.  This creates the perfect neutral background for the room.

All the furniture stayed the same, I just brought in the gold garden stool from my bedroom as an accent.  Then the fun began, digging through my stash and accessorizing.

Now if you can imagine beautiful medium toned hardwood floors and a cowhide rug, then you can see my vision.

Here was my original inspiration board.

I have the ladders out and I am off to paint the hall and then start on the doors and trim.  Still tons to do.

You can still link up to Inspire Me.  So much to see so check a few things out.

  1. Marty, your accessories are so smart and elegant, and the spaces light and fresh.

  2. It looks GREAT, Marty. But then again, how couldn't it with you at the helm? Well done, ma'am.

  3. Marty, what is your new wall color? I need to refresh my paint and would like to lighten a tad, but need to be careful it isn't TOO white b/c I have a lot of beige - you seem to have pulled it off well, so thought I'd ask. Been working a lot so am behind on my blog reading, so if you told us already I missed it, so sorry to be asking if it is redundant for you and your readers. Thanks!
