I wanted to reveal my Living and dining area long time ago, but I wasn’t sure if I should just add the pictures to the Home Tour page or I just write a special post about them. So I decided I will write a post about them and I can link up to the Home Tour Page… I’m a bit lost in the how to organize my blog 🙂
So let me stop talking and show you the before and after pictures of my Living and Dining room:
|Like always not a very before picture , this picture is taken after we painted the walls and added some furniture
|The Curio Cabinet, before I frosted the glass.
|After I painted the brick a crisp clean white
|My brownish ugly brassy fire place
And here are the After pictures…WARNING alot of pictures ahead
My color scheme: Off-white, Dark Grey, Turquoise and some silver and mirrored accent pieces.
|You can see here and in the below picture: the glass of the curio cabinets frosted. Yay, I can hide my mess lol.
As for the curtains, They are made by me 🙂 I didn’t know how to sew and I didn’t even have a sewing machine but I wanted a damask pattern with some shimmery fabric, it turned out that I can never find shimmery gray and blue damask ones ,so I bought the sewing machine at Target was on sale and had to experiment with it…I think one day I might add lining to them ( I found out about lining after I finished sewing so hopefully one day I will add it lol)
|I bought the dining room table and chairs from the mall before I saw all those vintage similar sets stained and painted on blog land and they are even more charming than mine…I wish I knew blog land before 🙁
|Those 3 paintings are a gift from my mother, you can check out here her collection.First I wanted to have my accent color to be either orange or yellow but after I had to choose the Turquoise and thx God I did 🙂
|After I saw this picture I felt that the living room needs some brown colors to balance the heaviness of the dining table so I added a huge wooden tray to the end table, check out my below picture.
|This coffee table was originally dark brown, I painted it white with touches of blue and I added some mirrors to the front of the drawers so it will look shabby so chic 🙂
I bought those mirrors from dollar store. I wanted to use them as coasters like Z gallery style 🙂 as for the huge wooden tray I bought from an antique shop in Lake Tahoe. And did you notice my fireplace now it looks so elegant and modern thanks to the power of paint ( I hope the Landlord will like my paint transformation lol)
|This wine decanter is my favorite even though I don’t drink 🙂
|Now the Bling Bling, the jewelry of the room in the next three pictures:
Those 2 lamps, the crystal chandelier style, and the crystal table lamp are from Home Goods
My mirrored antique console was my inspiration when I added mirrors to my coffee table.Let me tell you a secret: shhh don’t tell anybody OK? OK… If you look closer, the lower part of it was broken so I removed the crystal knobs and I bought 12″ x 12″ Beveled edge mirror tiles from Lowe’s and I glued them, then I glued the knobs on the mirror ( and nobody noticed, everybody thought it is a design lol )
Everything in those 2 pictures is from Home Goods: The mercury glass candle holders, the metal silver mirrored nesting tables, the antique mirror, and the crystal floor lamp.
I love the Moroccan style, yesterday I ordered another bigger yellow rug from my TV room, its has similar geometric Moroccan design, I can’t wait …
I’m lately obsessed with everything vintage and old and especially with ornate legs ( if they call these legs I’m not sure)
And the last picture, I know I know this post is full of pictures but who doesn’t like pictures??? right 🙂
This turquoise lounge chair was my splurge in the room. I bought it from Urban Outfitters and I just LOVE it…But I need to add some pillow though, any suggestions…I need you help with pillows to all my couches cause I suck at picking pillows so please any advices from all of the style queens out there. I’m thinking of some touches of hot pink ??yes ?? no??
