When we first moved into our house, the living room & dining room were both painted and carpeted in a dingy, grey-blue color. It was so depressing - like being inside a rain cloud. This is the before picture showcasing the old owner's things.
Now it's all warmed up. (Notice my creative cropping to avoid photographing the sea of toys on the floor!) It's still a work in progress. Art is needed to fill up a few painfully bare walls. I also want to replace the rug that we have with a much nicer one, but that can't happen until my children are a little older. I don't want to stress out anytime my two-year-old runs into the living room with a dripping ice cream cone.
