New Living Room

The first signs of my nesting came through earlier this year, when I decided to save my bonus money from work in order to re-do my living room.  Tough I don't think I can legitimately claim that as nesting, since it was before I got pregnant - but it was definitely time for some new furniture.

I neglected to take "before" pictures, but I used to have these coffee tables that had iron legs, and wood-and-glass tops.  The furniture looked nice enough, but it wasn't what I really wanted - I just got a deal on it back when I was trying to furnish my brand-new house before I got married.  After we had Wyatt I realized just how frustrating glass table-tops can be - there is just no keeping them clean.  

Before I  just had a few flower arrangments, and the occasional matching throw-pillow, and that was it as far as a color scheme goes.  I wanted a more unified color scheme, something cheerful and different.  So this is what I came up with:











Note the adorable toddler in that last picture . . . he completes the look, no?

I really like the way it turned out!  The colors are bright and distinct, and they all match (well, not exactly, but they go).  I feel like it gives it a more intentional, less we-just-got-married-and-are-using-what-we-have look.

I also did the colored bottles and pillow covers myself, and I like they way they turned out!  More on the bottles in a different post.

The next project is saving for furniture for the family room downstairs.  But that one won't be happening for a while - new baby coming, you know, so the kid's room takes precedence!

I love the colors and the coffee table! I need to do the same, our living room is definitely a "newly married and put what we had together".

I was just going to ask, is Wyatt not allowed in that room? Until I saw the last picture. How in the world do you keep stuff like that on the table. Hayes would have everything destroyed and on the floor in 2.5 seconds, and he is only 8 months old.
