Before and after: Goodbye dark, hello light...

My sister Lisa's living room is done! I had so much fun putting together pieces for this room. She was such a good sport to go along with my suggestions and wasn't afraid to step outside of her comfort zone. She wanted a fresh, light color palette to really brighten things up! I would say the goal was accomplished.
To remain in budget, Lisa chose to stick with her sofa and have new slipcovers made along with new throw pillow covers. I added light creme drapes to both soften and dress up the window. We moved the sofa to a different wall and made the sideboard table and sun burst mirror the focal point of the room. I searched for new landscape artwork and was super excited to find these stunning pieces to tie in all the light colors used through out the room.
The slope armchairs with the sleek silhouette make the room appear more spacious as opposed to the old over sized chairs. We used an ottoman to double as a side table in between the two chairs topped with fresh flowers to brighten the space.
The pale blue wool rug with the diamond pattern adds interest to the room without being too over powerful. I fell in love with the carved wood artwork above the chairs, I knew they would be the perfect fit for this room! The vases and topiary used on the sideboard table add visual interest, scale, as well as texture and color.

I think this room turned out really pretty!
