It's amazing what some paint will do! Even though our walls were a pale yellow, the room still felt dark and dreary. We painted the room Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter which is a beautiful gray/beige color and it looks amazing against the white trim. However, the fireplace dragged the room down with its dark brick and black mortar. Painting the fireplace white along with the new wall color, made the room feel so much bigger and more welcoming.
After the paint was finished, I moved on to refreshening the room further with new accessories. I headed to my favorite store, Home Goods, to get some pillows and to see what else I could find.
I looked for some gray and blue pillows and found the perfect pillows for an incredible price! Do you love them?
I also found some beautiful curtains for the dining room. 2 panels were $35! What? In most stores, they sell 1 panel for $90. Home Goods always has such beautiful, unique pieces and their prices are SO GOOD! Going there is so much fun because you never know what you are going to find. Unfortunately, if you see something you like or even kind of like, you have to buy it because you never know if they'll have it in stock again.
I brought the pillows home and played around with the setup to decide what placement looked best. Please excuse the kids items in the background but this is real life :)
Here it is! Our newly redesigned living room!
