I decorated my living room!

This week I got to cross another item off my 101 in 1001 list! I decorated our living room. I love it. It's not super adventurous, but then I've never really done a lot of decorating before. Since moving into this house last June, I have managed to decorate (p
aint) the bathroom, paint and put border up in Ollie's room and do the living room.

This is what my living room looked like BEFORE the decorating!

This was before we had actually moved in so no furniture there. I hated the colour they had painted that wall... it looked worse in real like. Believe me. It also made the room look quite small. Now our living room looks like this:

I love it so much and am really proud of myself! My mother in law helped me and we got it done in a day and a half. We plan to buy a large mirror in a pretty frame to go on the red wall, and we will be putting shelves up somewhere. I also want to add more frames to my collection of photos on the wall and make it into a huge photo wall!


  1. love that red lantern!

    Also, good call on the non-depressing paint color.

  2. I love the accent wall. Nice job.

  3. Super job, well done! And no paint splodges on the carpet as far as I can see.

  4. CUTE! I love the red accent wall and the red drapes.

  5. I love the red. That is my new favorite color. We are using red appliances to accent our new kitchen. The toys in the photo make me feel more normal becase we have toys stationed all over our living room. Slowly but surely we are starting to close in on them though. Very nice job!

  6. Emma, I love it! It looks so modern/chic!

  7. You did great re-designing it.

    Stopping by and following from Friday Follow, hope you can drop by. Have a happy weekend!
