Living Room Mini Makeover Reveal (finally!)



Well guys finally this is the Living Room mini facelift as promised! It took me a while, I know. 
Well now... a few things were removed, some added and some were just shifted. Let's see 
what happened here.




As you can see, the large painting over the couch is not there anymore and I'm so glad!
Instead black n' white frames and themes have been placed there with prints found 
through internet that my dear hubby got them blown out. No cost here, only the
frames that were purchased from IKEA. Remember the old clock that used to be hung
there too? It's gone for good! I must admit it, I'm not a rustic / vintage / thrifted type
of girl, sorry. I like them sleek and clean! :) Now there is hung an electronic clock,
which actually is a digital frame purchased from ... my basement! Yeah, love that
kind of shopping spree!
This little cabinet is the Expedit that used to be under the TV, now it serves the purpose of a
mini bar which is really handy. Some greenery next to it to enliven things up (and hide
a banch of plugs!)
Now, if you're wondering where is the arm chair... 

...there it is! Just shifted places with the Expedit cabinet. Much better now that we have an armchair into our living room! The drapes were changed into white linen new ones.
And as for the painting that I was telling you about, it is now placed in the dining 
area over the table and it now seems like a window to nature!
Walls are painted a white with a yellowish undertone, I even painted over the wallpaper to 
match the rest of the wall color and the firebrick. Some grey paint around the fireplace 
(cause I loooooove grey!) Then added a few more accessories, one-two red throw pillows, 
a striped throw...
...played around with the coffee table styling, a little plant, some candles, a few books...
...a few logs in the fireplace wrapped with Christmas lights for when the fireplace is not lit and 
that's it! I think I'm done for now!
A few more shots of the space to get a better idea:

changes and helped me a lot during the process. Because at the end...

  16. I love the black & white theme - that cute little bar is divine! the only thing that didn't work for me is the door trim. Do you rent or can you paint it? I would totally paint it out so that nothing jars the eye.

    Great job Olga!!

    1. Anne, further to our email exchanges that I've explained to you that the trim is laminate and that noone here is painting the trim and I mean NOONE, you've got me nw thinking that maybe I should be the one to break that rule and be a trendsetter! :) (but still everyone will think I'm crazy, including my husband!)
