My mama was right. i shouldn't have decided on how i wanted to decorate the house until i was moved in! She's a smart woman. Before i even moved to Las Vegas, i had to make the wedding registry. I thought i knew exactly what colors i wanted in each room. Then one day about a year after I lived here, my taste changed. I went on an inexpensive shopping spree to change the living room. If you've seen other room changes, you've seen some drastic differences, like this one. In the living room I originally thought red and brown. Safe, and definitely cute colors together no doubt but while out shopping i was thinking how i want something bright, fun, and more me! One of my favorite color schemes is gray and yellow, in fact if i were to go back to the wedding planning, i'd seriously consider these colors.
I decided to go on gray, yellow and light blue. ahhh perfection is what i found. there are still some updates i'd like to add but we're getting closer!
Changed needed: Definitely a new little table. more wall art. finish production of the photo of puppies!
This canvas below is on my list of making. First the colors are perfect for against the wall. Second it's a quote from how i met your mother, our favorite show to watch together. third, what better room to put a quote from your favorite tv show than in the living room? This is on my need to make list. thank you pinterest.
What i love is how some pillows are just the old ones with new covers on them. Saves money by not buying all new pillows, and reusing the ones you have.
Also i went with foam core mounting for the puppy photo. No it's sadly not a canvas for now, it saved tons of money though and still get a huge print! yeah! If you want to see where the puppy photo was taken, and see it closer.. click here.
The other big change was painting the wall gray. We were thinking of a blue, but this feels just so relaxed and i feel like it ties in all in together. I'm happy with it.
Also wish i could say i told Conner to sit there for photos. He was being lazy, but oh so cute.
I found a lot of the new items from target! Frames, blue and white vase, and pillows. These yellow flowers though, from michaels. One of the favorite things in the room! Dried flowers. so cute. I'd really like to buy more.
Candles too! I usually like to stick to yankee, but been finding some pretty good burning candles from Wal-mart too. Usually the food smells are the ones i like, flower candles.. just not my taste.
There's always more to do, seems like a home is never finished, but we're slowly getting there, and i'm so thankful for the beautiful home we have.
what are some color schemes you like!? Once you were settled in, did some rooms change? Love to hear some tips on inexpensive decor that worked for you!
OH- i totally fell asleep outside or this little post would've been up sooner. It's been just too beautiful not to enjoy some time out in the sun!
