Update on our living room

I am excited to show you an update on our living room!  Let’s first take a journey down memory lane.  This is what my living room used to look like and quite honestly, I loved having a huge desk in my living room.  It was a way to use the space and the desk hid the mess of all my papers.

But when my mom mentioned she needed to get rid of my great grandma’s piano, I decided it was time to say goodbye to the desk and turn my living room back into … well…. a living room.

As I have been planning this room I really wanted to keep everything light, bright and neutral.  But I do love color so I am bringing in color with my rug and accessories.  When I saw this rug at Rugs USA I showed my husband thinking he would say no… but instead he agreed and I didn’t ask twice!  I love the bright colors and as I finish decorating I will pull the pink, blue and yellow out of this rug and use them as accents around the room.

I know many of you may think I am crazy for getting a white couch, and you may be right.  But I LOVE how they look, and they photograph so well.  I mean, look how awesome it looks… my poop brown couch has never looked this good!  So how do I have a white couch with kids you ask?  They are not allowed to sit on the couch…

This is my room – I keep my milk glass collection in here. I have my favorite furniture in this room.  See this chest?  It was my husband’s grandpa’s and I just love that this piece has a story behind it.

    Looks AMAZING Brooke! Did you do the paneling yourself? I have been wanting to do that in my house but I am too afraid it won’t turn out like I have it pictured in my head.
