As you know, I have been giving my dining room/living room a complete makeover! Remember how I first shared my feelings about my dining room here, then after being gone for the summer and returning home, I just couldn’t get the living room quite right. I made some decisions and thought I had made progress, which quickly resulted in my gray and yellow love affair being over because gray is just to0 difficult to get along with, leaving me in a state of undecisiveness for a few weeks now, but I am so happy to bring you up to date with the final decisions I have made!
Remember, my dining room started out looking like this.
And my living room looked like this.
After coming home from being gone all summer, I rearranged the furniture to this.
After weeks of not being happy, I decided to swap the furniture. Today the furniture placement looks like this!
I flipped the two rooms. The dining room is the focal point when you walk in the front door now.
The smaller area ended up being the perfect little cozy space for my chair and chaise.
I ended up deciding on these 2 fabrics for my curtains and ottoman. Thank you JoAnne’s for your Columbus Day Sale, a great 50% off sale! I chose a more traditional fabric and adding a more contemporary fabric to the ottoman, these fabrics used together will help create a transitional decorating styled room.
Eventhough I LOVE this fabric, I just just couldn’t get past the raccoon tails! Thanks Hayley!
I am pleased to announce my handyman will be home in about 50 days now! Can’t wait, he has some work to do to totally finish up this room! The chandelier has to be swapped, pictures need to be hung, curtain rods need to be rehung to 108 inches, and 6 beautiful tufted, linen chairs need to be put together! I returned the other dining room chair, it was the wrong color gray! imagine that!
Along with a never ending honey do list! I think I deserve a pat on my back, as anxious as I am to update and decorate this house, I have been very patient as my husband focuses on this deployment. Patience is not one of my strengths, especially if it has to do with recreating and decorating my house!!
You know I love your feedback! So what do you think about the changes? I love the dining room table and linen chairs as the focal point, what about you?
