Living Room Redesigned

It is so great when you can "shop" the house and come up with a relaxing and calm room like this.



BEFORE
There was a lot to look at on the wall, and your eye had no where to rest.


AFTER
The cabinet makes a great focal point and your eye can pause, and take in what it is there.



Doesn't this spot look cozy!
It has three important elements:
Lighting (lamp)
Fabric (throw blanket, pillows)
Natural Elements (greenery)

BEFORE
This room was full of too many items.

AFTER
Often --- less is more!

BEFORE
The piano was a tight fit on that wall.


AFTER
It makes a great conversation area now, and feels very open and comfortable.

    I love it. It really is just gorgeous. It does look very inviting and a nice place to sit and visit or read a neat book. Beautiful. Hugs, Marty

    You are after my own heart. I love to redo rooms and use what I have around the house to "refresh" a room.
