LITTLE CHANGES IN THE LIVING ROOM

Since we’ve been focusing so much on the kitchen over the last few months, the living room has found itself on the back burner. Even so, we’ve managed to make a few changes here and there gearing up for even bigger changes down the road. Here’s what the living room looked like a few months ago… We took the chair next to the fire place and put it in the guest room and gave the floor lamp to my mom.…

SEARCHING FOR “THE ONE”

We have a love-hate relationship with the couch and loveseat in the living room. They were perfect for our first place, but now, the beige fabric sticks out like a sore thumb against the gray walls and feels like a speed bump on the road to the style we’re hoping to accomplish one day.

LIVING ROOM WARS

Lately, our schedules have been crazy. Like, crazy, kinds of crazy. So last night Greg and I decided to take a night to decompress and unwind. After our sushi takeout, I settled in for a few episodes of Cupcake Wars while Greg sat beside me reading a book. Come to think of it, I don’t know how he was able to read with all of that yelling. Yes, I have a tendency to yell at the TV when watching Cupcake…
