Living Room Paint Makeover

Our living room is finally painted! It was supposed to be done while we were in Europe but the painter had a death in his family so the job was delayed.  The painters just finished up yesterday and we got to see it this morning when we went down to the house to clean. Want to see what it looks like?  First, here's a reminder of what it looked like when we bought the house.

We weren't digging the beige walls and dark wood wainscoting and trim, so we had it updated to this...

It looks so much better now! I absolutely love the white trim, it makes the room like 1,000 times brighter.  You might remember from this post that I had a hard time choosing a shade of blue and I *think* we picked the right one.  It still looks kind of bright but I'm holding back judgement until we have our furniture moved in and we can get some curtains and/or blinds back on the windows.  I think that will make a big difference.  Here are some more pictures of the repainted living room.

So...what do you think? Did I make the right decision?


  1. YES! That's fantastic! When I eventually buy a house I'm going to hire you to style it for me :D

  2. Sooooo pretty!! The white is fantastic!
