Warming up the living room

We have begun to focus a bit of attention on the living room (can I get a whoot whoot). The room really needed a bit of warmth. This is our front room and most people would probably use this as a sitting room however we chose to use this room in a very casual way. We have warmed up the space with some curtains, area rug and changed out the toilet paper art (click here for toilet paper art tutorial ) for some framed art.

Here is where we were:

And this is where we are:

We have been looking around for area rugs for quite some time and I thought it wouldn't hurt to try out the Costco special, its giant,priced right, and has an excellent return policy. I'm not entirely sold on this area rug  yet so there is still a chance that it will be replaced. I must admit I do love the feeling of the lush shag rug beneath my feet and regardless of whether or not this rug stays we have learned that we need a rug no matter what!

It was time to replace the toilet paper artwork and the Ikea Ribba frames seemed like a great fit for the massive wall behind the sectional. As always you cant beat the prices (under $20 each)
We are still deciding on artwork for the frames.

Thanks to a 40% off sale at Bouclair we now have curtains. They definitely soften the room.

This room is still very much in limbo but the small changes have already made such a difference and 2 more items off the list!!!
