The photo above is one of the inspiration pictures I've pinned to 'Kandy's Place'. Light bright, airy and filled with art and plants.
Let's see where I started. Below is the picture of my living room when I first went to look at the apartment. None of the furniture is mine! I was drawn to the apartment because it had amazing light, good bones, a great layout and I liked that the bedroom was down in the basement.
And moving in! I think I lived with the computer on the coffee table as a tv for awhile. I needed to find a tv stand.
Making progress. What amazes me about looking back at these photos is that the bones are there but it is missing heart and soul.
It's amazing how much a difference curtains and art can make.
Finally here is the room styled. It just feel so much more warm and inviting. Plants always add life to a room.
You are probably wondering why I started this blog post with a picture of a dining room and then showed you the progression of my living room. Well, that is because this room is now the dining room.
First I simply swapped the rooms.
Then I did a bit of Craigslist hunting and I found this awesome CB2 Table and vintage Bertoia chairs. The table I had was just a little too small. The artwork came down and most of it went to my bedroom.
Then I hung wallpaper, which I 'll share in another post.
Next I need to find and hang art. I'd like to get different chairs to replace the orange chairs. I love them, but there isn't as much orange in here as I initially envisioned and they stand out in not a good way.
I'll keep you posted!
