Amanda at Serenity Now is hosting another party! And I love parties! This party is a Decorating Dilemma Party and my living room needs some serious help!
Back in March I had my living room, dining room and kitchen painted a heavenly shade, SW Grecian Ivory, it is a subtle tanny-beige and we painted the fireplace.....dark brown, I can't remember the color and I'm too lazy to go look at the paint can! Anyway after we painted and got the new entertainment center I couldn't decide what to hang on the walls, so I did nothing. And 2 months later I still have nothing. Take a tour of my living room!
This is the view from the dining room. I have never had any kind of window treatments up but I think I might want some??? I hate the blinds being down or curtains being closed and I want something that is kid friendly that they can't pull down or mess up. I want to hang something in between the windows and in between the window and door, but I am stuck. I thought about a clock and a few picture frames, but I don't know. *I have a weird thing about putting nail holes in the wall because I'm afraid I will hate it and then have to spackle and paint...lazy I know!*
This is the view from the kitchen, pretty much the same as above. See the toy corner? These are all the toys that seem to get played with a lot and I got tired of having to drag back and forth so I just left them there :)
This is the view from the front door. I am thinking about putting a vinyl saying above the mirror, but can't decide what I want it to say. Also I need to put something in the cut outs beside the fireplace to keep my kids from using it as a stage....the drywall hates it! I thought about fake trees but they are sooo expensive!
Close up of the fireplace looking into the dining room and kitchen. And see the hideous coffee table? I bought this about 7 years ago and loved it at the time but I have out grown it and it takes up so much room in the living room and someone is always running into and getting hurt because the girls won't leave the rubber stuff around the edges alone, they keep peeling it off. But my husband insists on having a coffee table :(
TV wall. Do I need to put something on the walls on each side of the entertainment center? Or maybe above? The stuff on top of the entertainment center was shopped from the rest of the house, like it, but it could go.
Entry way wall and the hideous fish tank! This is my husband's and he loves it, but all the fish died a couple of weeks ago, so I am crossing my fingers that it will end up in the garage. I have a huge print that used to hang above the fish tank of the Singing Butler
but I don't know if it fits anymore. But I do love this print!
Anyway I need some serious help! So I am begging, give me your input PLEASE! I will forever be indebted to you!
