Restyled Living/Dining Room


(click on image for larger view)

You've seen other areas of this apartment, now for the main living/dining space.

We did a major edit and mapped out new homes for everything, but just as important, we made a few decorative changes. The major thing was reorienting the rug. You can see in the 3rd pic the rug came out from behind the sofa as it ran lengthwise from the TV. The lounge chair near the windows wasn't even on the rug; an unconscious message of how the wife hates it. Now the rug runs lengthwise in front of the TV and the husband is happy to finally feel like he's part of the living area :O)

We also:
- switched out the small metal lamps with large green ones
- installed a sconce over lounge chair
- the only purchase: baskets under coffee table for magazines, books, etc
- moved around art and hung art
- re-styled entire room

I love it ...and when I see these photos I can hardly believe the change...I must admit I live here! Laura has done such an incredible job that has made a huge difference in our lives and how we deal with all our things. Her process is interesting and even can be fun - that alone has been such a surprise. Can't say enough good things about her. And so far all these changes make so much sense that I can easily stick to them (and we're talking BIG changes)!
