When I first moved into my house I was in a decorating frenzy to get everything done. After a few months and some disappointing paint colors, I decided to live in the space for a while to see how I felt, before making any more changes. While the whole house is still in a fluid state of decor rotation, I finally have it at a point where I feel comfortable enough to share.
Here is a look at where the living room started and where it is today.
Again, please disregard my realtor.
This is what it looked like when I first moved in.
I thought I liked the color, so curtains seemed like a good place to start. Yet somehow, even though the curtains were beige linen, they blended right in with the mint walls. It just looked blah.
Enter Darker mint paint. “Malted Mint” to be exact. I love it, but the window still needed something, so I added bamboo shades to fill in the wall between the windows and the curtains.
The other side of the living room has gone through multiple changes. How do you decide what the best use of an extra couple feet of space should be?
The desk fit nicely, but reminded me of living in an apartment.
An extra sitting area seemed like a logical choice, but what to do with that wall.
At some point someone told me the turquoise had gone a little over board too.
Hey! It’s “Mint”……but I had to agree.
So I toned it down by painting the arch “Soft Cream”.
Still a work in progress.
What do you think?
