– Turquoise Living and Dining Room

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??

  1. I'm truly wowed by the transformation of your living and dining room. I love it! And that turquoise couch is to die for! It's my favorite. And I love that wooden tray on the coffee table. Let's face it, I love it all.


  2. Just gorgeous! I love the turquoise touches…did you make the pillows? Of course, the fireplace is amazing after you painted it white. ALL of it is beautiful ~ very creative touches and my colors too! 🙂


  3. This is soooooo gorgeous! I love your color scheme! I don't think you need to add much more color on your lounge chair for your pillows. Just a couple of natural colored ones to bring in a bit of pattern or texture. Don't want to cover her up too much!!!

  4. STUNNING!!!! I LOVE the colors! Everything came together so beautifully.
    f you want a pink pillow, you could go with more of a coral for the spring. For winter, I would go with white and gray. Hope that helps.

    I'm a new follower and I can't wait to see what you do next!

  5. I love the colors you used! SO bright and cheery, yet it looks so elegant! Great job!

    Thanks so much for linking up to Sassy Sites for our free for all party. Be sure to join us tomorrow morning for some shout outs! Have a wonderful weekend!


  6. It is absolutely gorgeous. I love every inch of it. The silver details throughout along with the turquoise are perfect. Awesome job.

  7. wow – I love your transformation although when I first saw the before pictures – I wondered what how and why!!! Having said that, I was blown away with your eye for detail and design. You really have dressed the room well after doing a great paint job. It's staged just like something fresh out of a magazine – so well done you.

    I can see shades of grey pillows on the chaise long – and elsewhere, mixed with the odd brown one – perhaps in demask or something geometric. I think that you have a perfect eye and don't really need much help in deciding anyway.

    Well done and thanks for sharing and the inspiration.

  8. I love your transformation! Can you tell me where you got the chairs in your LR? I'm looking for some that size and shape! I love the subtle tone on tone, too.

    Great job!

  9. Absolutely beautiful transformation! Hard to be believe it's even the same room!

    Love all the sparkly accents, and they turquoise fainting couch is divine!

    Hope you get the chance to link this up at my upcoming Feature Friday Free-for-All party!

    P.S. I'm a new follower!


  10. wow, that's quite a transformation, did you move, doesn't look like the same room as the ikea vs. Macy's couch. They are two beautiful rooms I have to say. I really like the mirrors and the superglue knobs, great idea. I quite love your silver dresser, I was surprised it was not in the room, it would have looked beautiful in there. Great job.

  11. Gorgeous!!! I keep scrolling back and forth to check out all of the beautiful details. You did an amazing job! {including a link back in this week's highlights} I don't think I'd ever want to go out! lol Thanks so much for sharing, Rasha. I love every bit of it!

  12. what can I say that nobody hasn't already said? I love the room, colour palette is perfect and I like how you've implemented morrocan style. Beutiful room, the turquoise lounge chair is my favourite as well as the round side table with circles – I wish I could find something like that

  13. This room is really beautiful-the accent wall and colors throughout are stunning-I'm your newest follower from TDC-stop on by for a visit!

  14. <3 it! I found you on Not JUST A Housewife. That chaise really caught my eye! I think that might be my favorite thing in the room! Say hi to your newest follower and follow me back! <333
