Out of all my attempts to makeover our new home with nothing but fresh paint, my favourite project by far has been changing up the colour in the living room. You might remember our old living room (the one with the red wall
.) Well, we pretty much implanted the same design elements into our new living room BUT it is now much bigger, better, and brighter! We even got a plant so that we can breathe better when we're in there.
The original walls were yellow. We decided to spice things up with... white! Now I know white is not a particularly exciting colour, especially not in comparison to sunny yellow; however, Macklemore once sang about white walls and I've been hooked ever since. Actually I made that up. We decided on white because it allowed us to go a bit more funky with the trim and artwork. Eventually we'd like to put up a faux-brick wall on one side and a picture wall on the other. I'm also on the look-out for fun curtains.
Roger and I are going to take a short break from indoor fix-me-ups for the time being (at least until after the wedding.) We have our hands full with invitations, planning for the ceremony, decorations, and attire. I'm looking forward to the day when we can relax in our new front room!
Before the paintbrushes came out...
I hope you like. I love!
