Here is the second redesign of our living room! This blog post shows how the living room looked before.
This design is more neutral and organic compared to the last living room design. My friend, interior decorator Diane Holm of White Picket Fence taught me how to make these paper hearts. I stapled them to brown twine and hung two rows above the credenza to give that wall some texture.This extra big pinecone was one of my favorite items on the credenza for a while.I switched up the lamp position from the far right to the far left, which creates a cozy spot to read on the couch.The new gallery wall has fewer pieces of art and take up less space, allowing for the paper heart garlands.I love these bright colors.The two pieces on the right are my Bubby’s marker drawings from school. I trimmed them down and framed them and they look so nice. You can see the typewriter caption on the bottom piece, I love how old they are! My friend Lauren gave me the yellow piece of art in the middle. I love how the color ties in with the lamps.I keep the Himalayan Salt Lamp on top of the credenza and it is always on. When the salt lamp is heated, usually with a night light bulb or candle, it releases negative ions. Negative ions help cleanse the air of positive ions which are released by our electronic devices, TV’s, computers, etc. Salt lamps have a warm soothing glow that helps make any room feel relaxing for yourself and guests.Dried flowers and greenery are a nice replacement when fresh flowers are in short supply during the winter months.
