Before and After Living Room

Before and After posts are my very favorites. Today we’re talking Living Rooms.

Don’t you agree that seeing a room go from unused and unloved – because it is just not “you” – to something that makes you do the happy dance every time you walk by is something worth celebrating???  I do! And so does the sweet family who lives in this home. We have been slowly working our way through the house making each room a special place designed just for their family and I can’t even tell you how much fun we have had.

(You would have to have kids or grands to understand.) They wanted bright and happy and sophisticated. They wanted to be able to sit in a pleasant environment and watch the kids in the pool which is just beyond that big window that was BEHIND the sofa.  (Think jump up and turn around at every scream. Not good.)


Sooooooooooooo,  we did this.
