Living room makeover…

Here’s the evolution of my living room…

When I first moved in, it looked like this…


And here it is with all my furniture in… I wasn’t a fan of the wallpaper…

And then I got rid of all the wallpaper and painted the wall a lovely shade of aubergine. Much better! And purple curtains to match…



Then I got my floors done…

And then, four years later, I got sucked into a retail vortex and realised I needed a rug… so this happened…

Rearranging the room…


My slightly ratty old sofas…



Say goodbye to the purple wall – it’s been a fun 4 years!

Tiggy looks on in bemusement as I put on the undercoats…


And now for the very mature and grown-up Sage Green colour

And voila!


Next up – new sofa arrives! Here is it in all the boxes!

And here’s the new rug!


All done, except for the purple curtains… New floor, new rug, new sofa, new wall…

Then my lovely dad bought me some new curtains to replace the purple ones…


Look how pretty they are! And very grown up, with trees on and stuff…

  2. LOVE THE NEW COLOR!!!!!! You went from awesome to FABULOUS. I liked the purple, but I really like the green!

    Ooooh you are making me wish for a new home so badly, so I can do this myself! *wishes*
