I did this post several months ago of my old living room in my apartment.
I am now showing an update of my new living room in my house!
So excited that I finally have a fireplace., its gas I love it, so easy just a flip of a switch and you have a fire.
Have some of my favorite photos on top of the fireplace
This frame in the middle is my favorite, found it at goodwill for only a couple dollars it was already white and everything.
Love how my chandelier looks above the fireplace with the matching mirrors reflecting its light, Everyone thought I should put the TV above the fireplace, but I wanted the fire place to be glamorous and lets face it TVs are not glamorous!
purchased the chandelier at
It is a plug in one, which can be hard to find this large.
I love my Tv it's a 42 inch, it was a very nice graduation gift from my father. It's a must have for me I have to watch HGTV everyday! someday I would love to have one of those fancy TVs that look like a mirror when they are off, that they use on HGTV all the time, they are amazing! but very expensive =[\
Here's a close up the sticker above the TV!
love these they look painted on, but so much easier then painting on.
Love having inspirational sayings around the house!
Another reason I did not want to put my TV on the fireplace is that I love my adorable little TV stand, Its very me, with all the detail which is what I love. Purchased at goodwill for 24.99 and painted white!
I will admit I am a little bit obsessed with mirrors I love how much light they bring into the room and make it feel larger. I think these mirrors are in such perfect spots because they are always reflecting something pretty!
These two photo's here (above and below) show where they two mirrors are located in the room.
I do plan to hang the shorter one a little higher eventually.
Isn't this Little Chest adorable!
It's great for storage! I keep extra blankets and all my Wii games and accessories in it.
Its a cedar chest that I bought at goodwill for 24.99 I Believe. It was very beat up it must have had 150 cup rings on the top of it! Nothing a little white paint couldn't fix though! & the inside is still the original beautiful cedar.
Got this cute pillow that is on top of it at target for only 6 bucks!! I have no clue how! The price on the self said 24.99 then it rang up at only 6, hey I wasn't going to complain!
Bella likes to sit on it and look outside.
I have my cute little bird cage sitting next to the chest for now until I find a more permanent home for it. This was also another goodwill find 6.99 was a dark wood I painted it white.
I think my table is one of my all time favorite goodwill finds only 10 bucks!! My mother actually found it and bought it because she knew I would love it. Of course it did not look like this when she got it, otherwise goodwill have no priced it at only 10 bucks haha. But again a little sanding and some white paint can fix almost anything!
Purchased this piece at HomeGoods, Its such a lovely center piece for my table. I'm also obsessed with crystals you can never have too many in my mind.
It is manufactured by opulent treasure's
( They make many gorgeous things I own several pieces myself)
Some time I want to paint all my walls in this room a very pale gray, The color they are now was the color they were when I bought my house. Its not a bad color that's why I haven't changed it yet, but I would perfer it be a color I picked myself.
My favorite lamp!!
Have I mentioned how wonderful I think pillows are, or have you already figured that out hehe. Pillows are the perfect way to add pops of color to my white sofa & love seat.
My Sofa and love seat are by Ikea they are from the Ektorp line, slip covered, it's the only way to do white, they get a little spot on them and you just throw them in the wash its great! Surprisingly though the white does not get dirty as quickly as you would think! I wash them once every 3 months and they usually don't even look dirty at then end of the 3 months.. For those who are scared of white... as my mothers says ( who has the same sofa in white too) "White does not make it any dirtier the dirt is still there no matter what color it is" I totally agree.
I'm going to be painting my kitchen cabinets white in the next few weeks, it will make for a much better background of the living room. I'm super excited to paint them.
Standing on the fireplace to get different views.... hehe.
(can't wait for my kitchen island to be white!!!)
"What are you doing up there Mommy".
Yet again, this view will be so much better after i paint the cabinets!
Hope you enjoyed my living room!
Thanks for stopping by!
