Living Room Switcheroo

Living Room Switcheroo

Remember my sister in law’s gorgeous living room from last week?
Here’s her other living space’s transformation too!
The BEFORE:
And the AFTER:
Much more balanced and polished. 
Proportionately, rearranging this room made a HUGE difference.
We didn’t add anything “new” here except the small chair and ottoman….again, from Grandmother’s house. 🙂
The cute club chair and ottoman had an original chintz on it. It was positively vintage, but we needed it to be more in tune with the fun concept we had for this room. A soft gray canvas duck suits the room perfectly.
Moving the lamps and bamboo tables in from the other room, as well as the coffee table, now gives us a sense of balance and symmetry. Flanking the mirror, prints and plates balance the large wall. 
The antique camel back sofa, a piece from Mimi (the other grandmother), was kept classic with a black and white ticking stripe…. not that the navy and maroon original upholstery didn’t work. 😉 
I found these arm chairs at an antique mall…the lines were fun, and they begged me for a makeover. 
A can of white spray paint + black and white spots = insta-glam
The gold and white damask dhurrie rug pulls the whole room together, adding a layer of softness. 

I scooted the antique buffet to the small wall near the front door and added a little vignette with vases, boxes, books, and artwork. 
Maja personality punch! 

Have you recovered any of your grandmother’s furniture?
Or do you have a lot of her pieces in your home?
