Start of Living Room Decor Change Up

I am starting a new decor project in the living room.   I took everything down off the walls.  Here is the wall before shot and hopefully soon will have the after picture of what we do to this wall and the new decor change ups for my living room.



We got a new leather sectional not too long ago after I sold my pretty white slipcovered sectional so that is starting a whole decor change up in this room!  Hopefully Pottery Barn meets Cottage will be achieved in this room soon.

I have to really watch the budget while Terry is trying to find another position in the fire service so I am going to do all these changes with supplies and decor pieces I have.  I love a challenge and have a "captive helper" that has tools so it is all good! 
 Have a great start to the new week.

  2. How I wish I had a smidgen of your energy, Kris! You two accomplish so much in so little time. I am still looking at my armoire across the room thinking it needs a face lift. I did find an Annie Sloan distributor in CO to stop in and visit next time we drive to Denver... no one works slower than me! :)
    Have a pleasant day,

  6. Good luck with the new look. I think it's better to be creative and use what you have anyway, it will be way more satisfying. Can't wait to see what you're cookin up.

  9. oh my goodness! I can't wait! You have such style and design skills Kris. I'm wanting to get a sectional and think I am going to stay with IKEA? because the slip covered pieces I have have held up so well and I just love the thought of taking the cover off and washing when needed. But not sure ... I will wait to see what you do with your leather and how you incorporate it.
    Have a great week!

    1. Hi Patty,
      I had the white slipcovers and with my dog getting on the sectional all the time I was always washing them. So the leather is a better choice for me right now. I just miss the look of the sweet slipcovers but I like not having to wash them constantly.
      Hopefully I can join some of my cottage with a pottery barn look and have it feel comfy and cozy in this room. Stay tuned.
      Kris

  31. Can't wait to see how you make that work! I need inspiration for my living-room.

  32. I think even if you didn't "have to watch the budget" you would still use decor and supplies you already have. You seem to take joy in that, and it shows others that they can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune. I love watching your projects unfold, Kris, and look forward to seeing your new living room. xxx ~ Nancy

  33. Using what you have is always my first choice in decor, so I'll enjoy watching what you do in this room. If it's half as great as your kitchen...it will be awesome!
