{before & after}

There's nothing I love more than looking at before and after photos....well besides smooching my little nugget!  {but that doesn't count!}

This living room took on a whole new look, don't you agree?! The "before" walls were mucky green faux paint. The fire place was boring and blended into the wall too much. 

We painted the room a warm mocha brown and painted the fireplace a crisp and clean white to make it really pop against the walls. To enhance the fireplace we also added custom made bookcases on either side of the fireplace and added a gorgeous black granite fireplace base. We also removed the blinds from the cool architectural windows flanking the fireplace & added some great comfortable furniture, and a pretty rug to ground the space. We did add artwork, a wicker tray to the ottoman, and a cool arc lamp after these pictures were taken, but overall you can see the huge improvement made to this living room just by adding a new coat of paint and some fabulous furniture!

 I hope to share more of my before & after rooms with you all this year!


  1. This is our living room, and Lesley was just amazing! She helped us with wall color choice, furniture choice and placement, accessories and even staged the new bookcases! I encouraged her to show a before and after photo and so glad she did because it showcases her talent! We were so happy with her work that she did our kitchen and bathroom too - hopefully she will put up before and afters of those rooms also.
