Living room reveal.

I am so excited to reveal my living room today! I feel like this has been weeks in the making even though it's only been three days since my new furniture arrived! I can't wait any longer, so let's get to it!!

Here's a quick reminder of what this corner of the living room looked like before:
For more before pictures, feel free to take a look at yesterday's post here.

And without further ado, here we have the after:
Oh man...I can't even tell you how much I love it!! The only new additions to the room are a white Jonathan Louis sofa and a lovely side chair in a yellow, gray and white floral - also Jonathan Louis. Everything else is the same!
 Why did I wait so long to buy you, Mr. Sofa???
Your tight back cushion and smooth lines make me swoon!
 I just love the way the dresser pops with the yellow, gray and white tones of the room!
Here's the view of towards the front door...
I also added a few more accessories to the dresser. I had been wanting a sand timer for ever so when I found this guy on sale at Michael's, I snapped it up!  That and my newest letter "R", which I'm slowly starting to collect more of! I only have three right now but they are all featured throughout this post, can you spot them all?

Seeing the dresser in the room with the new furniture totally reassures me that aqua was the right choice! I am just giddy over how much I love it!
There you have it...my new living room!

There are still a few more things I'd like to do as soon as the budget allows including:
 -getting a new larger area rug
-doing something to the side cane chairs
 -adding artwork above my desk

But until that happens, I am absolutely thrilled with the room just as it is! I smile every time I walk into it and I immediately feel calm and relaxed, which was exactly what I was going for!

Feel free to stop in anytime!!

    1. Hi Alicia! I bought the chair at this little furniture that claimed it was going out of business so everything was like 75% off. It was the only one on the floor and I snatched it up! HOWEVER, it's by Jonathan Louis and I know that Living Spaces carries it. I'm not sure if you have a Living Spaces near but they call it the Tulare Accent Chair.

      Hope that helps!
