Living Room-After

This room has been the biggest undertaking, in that I have been working on this room since the moment we moved in (New Year's Eve 2007).  The only thing we had in this room was Handsome custom made cat bed and our purple couch, that has since then left us. This wasn't the only room that didn't have furniture, we're still working on this problem in the sunroom which sits adjacent to the living room.  The piano was the first obvious addition which is on the opposite end from the fire place. 

I've been trying to figure out what color to paint this room for practically 2 years, the first time I said it out loud was back in April when I started selecting paint colors.  Later during the spring of 2k10, we made the plunge and purchased 4 new sconces. Woof, trying to purchase 4 of something is serious.  1-2 seems enjoyable....4 is an unnecessary design stress!  So, with the new addition of the scones pressed the addition of a different paint color.  You can view the before photos here.

I used to think the ceiling was really white...
that was before the addition of the new paint on the walls.

Some folks don't like the "starkness" of white,
I embrace this clean, crisp color for all that it goes with
and the pristine that makes it fashionable through the seasons.

I've had these cubes for many years. About 18
months ago I taped them all up, and shot them with a
coat of glossy white spray paint. I also added wheels
to the bottom.  This makes for an easy transition for an
extra seat or table as it is needed. Until then, it houses
a bar tray with photos of the hubbs and I at graduation. 

In approximately 7 days,
we'll put our Christmas tree here.

This room has 4 windows, 2 of which are nearly
floor to ceiling and 7 doors. This wall is the biggest
piece of flat space in the room.
