I’ve decided to take the plunge again and participate in Linda’s One Room Challenge! There are many, many places in my house that I could have chosen to work on for the next 6 weeks, but I chose the living/dining room area. It’s one long room and it’s one of the first things you see as you enter my home. Therefore, I really want to get it “finished” or at least to a point where I’m proud of what it looks like.
Let’s get on to the ‘Befores’, shall we? This is what the spaced looked like when we bought it.
And here it is now – my living & dining room area, which is not wowing me at all. (These photos are actually from April, but everything pretty much still looks the same.)
It’s definitely not terrible, but it’s not quite representative of our style or the message we’d like our home to convey. What is that message? I’m so glad you asked!
This is the mood I envision for the space. I want it to feel very sophisticated, glamorous, but also very comfortable and functional at the same time. We hang out in this space just about all day, so though I’m going for glam, I still don’t want to feel like we can’t put our feet up and relax in this space.
