Living Room Decor: Before & After

Continuing on with my Before & After posts our home is the living room. Nic and I truly do live in our living room. You can find us there 95% of the time while we're home. It was a little difficult organizing a design scheme around a 67 in. big screen TV but we were able to make compromises and we love how things turned out.

While redecorating the condo from Nic's bachelor pad to a family home we did not want to spend very much money. We knew we would need some additional pieces of furniture; so we tried to buy things that will still work well in our next home. Redecorating the condo really got me interested in designing on a budget, yet still buying quality pieces.

Here are the Before & After photos of our living room. My favorite part of the room is the matching wingback chairs. What is your favorite piece in your living room? Leave me a comment!

As always, if you see something that you like there are links to where I purchased each piece at the end of the post. If I have not linked to a website just leave me a comment and ask where I purchased it. I would love to help you find pieces that you love.


Please take notice to the half naked guy Karate striking poster over the fire place. (Don't worry he's not actually naked)

  1. Great transformation from a bachelor pad to a "home" - good job. Love the way the chairs bring out the blue in the fireplace tile.

    1. Thank you! The relationship of the navy chairs to the slate used on the fireplace is one of my favorite parts!

  2. This was a really great contest and hopefully I can attend the next one. It was alot of fun and I really enjoyed myself..
