Living Room Painting

March 13, 2011 at 9:54 pm 4 comments

Our living room has been painted! It was actually painted a few weeks ago, but I thought I would wait to post pics on here until we had the new clock and art work up. The paint color we chose for the living room is called Nomadic Desert and you can get it at Sherwin Williams. The accent wall color is Brick Paver, also available at Sherwin Williams. The room feels so much more warm and cozy now compared to before when it was just painted white. Paint can sure do a lot for a room! Below you can see the before and after pics of our living room.

Here are the pics of the accent wall before and after.

The red wall color you see in the photo above is more accurate to how it actually looks, since I took that in the daylight with no flash. The red doesn’t look quite right in the earlier photo where you can see the whole living room.

I first posted on here in October about doing the living room makeover. I would say it’s 85% complete at the moment. The final remaining piece is a new couch and new love seat, and possibly an accent chair. I will wait to get the new couch and love seat and see if there is space for a chair too. We plan to get the furniture in a dark brown color.

    what a beautiful difference! you know, I really thought your livingroom looked great even BEFORE you had the painting done. But now, seeing the before and after together, and the new artwork and all, it really does look so much more warm, cozy and “together” now! Good job, you two!

    I always advise people having a painting in Living room like having a Kohinoor diamond in the crown. You presented a very good illustration how a painting changes room’s whole look. Thanks for the post!!!
