living room makeover plans.

One of the biggest selling points of our new home was the open living room and kitchen floorplan. We had a similar layout in our condo in the city and we loved it. Here are a few "before" photos of our living room:
Our contractors already removed the carpeting and they are installing new hardwood floors later this week. We're also planning on painting the red wall, installing a new ceiling light fixture, and fixing the top of the bookshelves (I'm not fan of the arches).

Here's my other ideas for the space, with items that I already own or plan on getting in the future:

Already Own: We have a similar gray sectional that will provide lots of comfortable seating. I'm excited to start using our reclaimed wood coffee table again (we put it away when Vi started walking).  And I love our cozy washed velvet pillows and buffalo check throw pillows.

Purchased: I bought two sets of navy blackout curtains and I think they'll add a nice amount of color to the room. This semi-flush ceiling light fixture is going to be a huge upgrade from the worn-out white ceiling fan that used to be in the room.

On My Wishlist: I love the subtle pattern in this gray and white mid-century heathered basketweave wool rug, it would look great with our gray sectional. I really want some birch logs for our fireplace since it's such a focal point of the room. And I'd love some new art! I love these pieces from Minted -- for the bookshelves: Leaf in the Green and Marbled Wake, and I'm deciding between these gorgeous blue prints for our mantle: Rocky CoastPamela or Fields of Blue.
