The Remodel (Living Area)

This was somewhat of a cheat room for us, it wasn't much of a remodel, more like a re-paint + re-furnish. Some grey garage paint on the floor and a couple of fresh coats of white on the walls and fireplace made a pretty big difference, the space feels more uniformed and open. We still have a lot of work to do, like adding shelving (Apologies fireplace, for using you as a catchall/bookshelf),  and hopefully dressing up the very bare wall behind the couch with some of my posters that are screaming to be framed. 

The skylight on the high ceiling is also one of my favorite things about our home, almost a year in, we still have not felt the need to purchase a floor lamp for the room, it helps the room stay well lit until quite late into the evening hours.
