Decor Updates


Before I begin this post, I want to thank you all for your input, advice, recommendations and thoughts on yesterday's crib post!  It was super helpful and really got us to narrow down our options.  Of course, I'll let you know which one we ultimately pick!

Last weekend, we ran some errands down at the big box stores {which is a big deal when you live in a small town!}.  It wasn't planned, but I found some great new additions to our living room!  Remember how I told you I wanted to update that space {post found here}?  Well I'm staying true to our 2012 honey-do list and got a jump start!

Here's what the living room looked like with the previous "red" color scheme:


I got rid of the red pillows and found these beautiful new light blue pillows at Marshalls!  Here's a sneak peek:

You'll also notice the awesome new chevron lampshade from Target!
I also just bought these creme and brown zebra pillows.  They really help to tie in the new color scheme, don't you think?

On the opposite side of the living room, I made a couple more changes.  Here's how things looked before:

And here's a sneak peek of the updated look:

I added a table and new mercury glass lamp {also from Marashalls}!

The next thing to do is take down the "fruit" paintings that are on that wall.  I'm thinking something abstract and painted will do the trick.  Do you have a favorite artist or Etsy shop worth checking out?

It's definitely progress, that I'm happy with so far!  I'll reveal the whole room once it's all squared away.

Have a great day!

  3. Love, love, love, love, love!! Did I mention that I love?!? Those dang chevron lampshades at Target have been mocking me every time I walk by them on the shelf. I'm gonna show those suckers who's boss when I finally put them in my cart & bring 'em home with me!

    Love the new pillows & the more neutral color scheme. My own den is getting this makeover ASAP!!

    Can't wait to see what piece of art you pick to replace the 4 fruit pics! Keep us updated along the way, pretty please... ;)

  5. Love love the new touches, Natasha! :) For art I love Peggy Wolf (she's on Etsy). But maybe it's too girly for your living space. :)

  6. LOVE the mercury glass lamp. I've framed printed paper with a cool, funky pattern from a stationary store like "Paper Source" wall art. It's way cheaper than hand-painted work.

  27. It's always fun to spruce things up! Love the target lampshade!

  28. Everything looks soooo good!!! Love that chevron lampshade and the side table and lamp are the perfect addition. For inexpensive "art" we framed nice paper from Paper Source in white Ikea frames over our couch that came with a crisp white mat. You can't beat the price and because it's so inexpensive it's super easy to change out when the mood strikes you!!

  29. I love your updates! I really like that zebra pillow - it's really cute and definitely helps tie everything in - I am phasing out my reds and greens too!

  30. OMG she is so adorable. I know I always say this, but her hair is just like my almost-2-year old's. Love.

  34. I love the more neutral accents! Also that couch... I want to run up and dive on it and then watch a Dowton Abbey marathon!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Isn't it wonderful to see what a few great pillows can do...I simply LOVE that zebra print one! Yay! Well done all around! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am loving the changes you made! The chevron lampshade is so great, and I love the mercury glass lamp. Can't believe you found that at Marshalls. My Mom has a similar one from Pottery Barn that I'm sure was double the price, if not more!

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's always fun to do a room makeover, even if it's changing small things like cushions and lamp shades. The smallest changes can have the biggest impact :-)

    I just received a painting that I bought from Michelle Jacobson on Etsy, and it's gorgeous! http://www.etsy.com/people/geliz01

    And my favourite abstract artist is Matt LeBlanc: http://www.mattleblancart.com/en/
