Before & After: A stylish new look...



I recently helped my good friend Kami from the famous NoBiggie blog makeover her fun new living room. Kami's room was transformed with fresh color and a blend of new and old pieces. If you have not checked out Kami's blog, you must take the time. Kami has tons of crafting, cooking and thrifting ideas that are very pinworthy!

For starters, Kami replaced the carpet with the pretty, hickory, hardwood flooring and switched out all the baseboards for a wider width. What a major difference with the new flooring and baseboards, I love the new look! Also, Kami thrifted the amazing credenza for $50 and had it painted in this refreshing, pretty color (light aqua #2152 by Kwall).  I think the light aqua color adds the perfect dose of color to this space.





I suggested Kami have custom, wood pelmet boxes made for her two windows to create the illusion of a greater space and draw the eye upward to make the windows appear taller. I love how the boxes turned out, I think the goal was accomplished!  You can really see the difference from the "before" and "after" side by side picture that Kami took of the windows. 




The furniture grouping consists of a new sofa and love seat that were purchased in this pretty neutral color along with a new, grass coffee table. I love the clean lines and  quality of the new sofa set. I wanted to add natural texture to the room and was able to find this grass coffee table that was the perfect scale for her space. Anchored on a chevron rug, the bold pattern works perfectly in this space. I thought the room would look more cohesive if we tied in the pretty blue tones from the credenza through pillows and accessories. 




  I am really pleased with the new look of this fun living room, Kami was great to work with!

Great transformation, Staci! Love how the oversized chevron rug grounds the space and the new color on the thrifted credenza!
