Okay, its taken awhile for us to start to feel really moved in, especially in the living room.
It started like this, a nondescript beige-y brown, it didn't look good.
We kinda stuck whatever furniture in the room. Sorry, all I could find was a picture from last Christmas.
This is how it turned out for us. The fabric bins are temporary, until I get real baskets.
So then we had the long wall that the couch is on. Not the one with the window, but this is the only before picture, from before we moved in. The wall was a big expanse of more of that poopy brown.
We finally hung pictures.
So with this angle, you can see that by rearranging the furniture and putting in the bookshelf, we gained more space, which is way important as the room is quite small.
For more reference, similar shots of the room last Christmas
And this Christmas.
There ya go.
