Ever since we moved into our house about a year and a half ago, I have been wanting to change our living room. It is painted a cream/yellow that is so NOT ME. The paint goes throughout our living/dining area, the hallways and entry way. Our fireplace is a painted brick with a mantle that does not fit and we currently have cardboard over the opening so little hands and feet can’t crawl in there and get dirty. Yes, cardboard. ugh. There’s also red curtains over all of the windows that I’m ready to get rid of! For some reason, I haven’t found time to do any changes to the living room. Hmm, wonder why….
Since the boys are still little, David and I have decided that our furniture is fine for now – slip covers are the BOMB when you have a baby spitting up and little hands with crumbs all over the place. I do however, desperately want to paint, get a new fireplace cover and mantle and just freshen up the over all look of our living space. Pinterest is my favorite place to look and here are just a few that have caught my eye!
You will see a trend here… I love the crisp white trim against a muted grey. All of the bedrooms are a bluish grey but I’m thinking maybe more of a greige (grey beige) for the living room. Who knows!
I love all the pillows, but let’s be real, they would all be thrown on the floor by Luke trying to hit Ben…
This is the kind of fireplace screen we need!
Did you notice that there are NO TOYS anywhere in the rooms pictured above?
Annnnd with that, naptime is up! Let me know what you think! Once I get the green light (and enlist the help of a few people, GiGi and BeBe, I’m looking at you 😉 ) I will update you on our progress! <3
