Living Room Color Reveal!

Living Room Color Reveal!

We’ve been sprucing up the place for the past couple of weeks.  Painting, dusting and furniture rearranging has everything feeling spiffy.

There’s nothing new but it still feels fresh.  I like that we did it with just a few cans of paint and a little bit of wood.  It took me a few tries, but I found a gray that I really, really like.  It’s Silver Song from Benjamin Moore.  What I love is it’s not blue or orange, but just gray.  I think the combination of gray walls and white trim is so elegant and lovely.  Not to mention clean walls….nothing says elegance like a lack of scratch marks and crayon rubbings.

Here’s what you see walking in the front door….welcome to our home.

The furniture used to create more of a long rectangle.  I thought a square would feel more open, so after we painted I only moved the bigger pieces back in and played with the arrangement.  This is much roomier!

I also like the TV tucked behind the rock wall.  It can be seen from every seat, but it’s not the centerpiece of the room.

If you look up you can see the rail we painted with a soft, blue-green.  Up there is the new “Lego room”.

I’m crazy about this little footstool I made last year with an old metal crate.

I left the hand-painted Bible verse on the wall behind the white couch, but I decided to add planks around it to add a detail that would give the room character.  They’re just 1x4s we nailed to the wall.  You can see it here in the corner.

Of course, my beautiful piano is still there.  I just moved it to the other side of the room.

Also, I raised the curtains from the top of the window to the ceiling.  It made a huge difference and I wonder why I didn’t do it a long time ago.

I know, the wall color looks like the same color it was before.  But it’s not.  It was green, but it was always hard to photograph.  So you’ll just have to believe me.

Next week I’ll show you the new and improved dining room.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Beautiful room! I really like your arrangement!

  2. Had wondered where you’ve been. HA– right there at home.

    SpiffEE! Wee-dogies! Yessiree, I am GONE on it. I always say, “It only takes one thing to change everything.” Amazing! Y’all did a fabulous job!

    Can’t wait to see the dining room!

    Happy weekend,

  3. OH Lisa its beautiful! I love the new arrangement and the color is spectacular. Simply lovely!1

  4. Your room looks great! It’s so nice to see all the details. And I can see the difference in the wall color! Greys are tricky, tricky, tricky, if you ask me, so you did a great job in choosing. Your living room says “WELCOME!” (just like that, in all caps).

  5. There are so many things I like about this room! The verse on your blackboard, the piano, the Bible verse, changing things up without spending a bunch of money! Good job!

  6. Love your painted piano! Pinned it, as maybe one day I’ll get brave enough to paint mine. It looks nearly identical to the style of yours:)

  7. Ooo, I like it! The color reminds me of the off-white clay I used to use to sculpt. Silver Mist, in the photos it seems warm, a perfect back ground!

  8. It looks great!

    Isn’t the lego room, Jacob’s old room? Where does he sleep now? I love your creativity and how you use even little spaces to make bedrooms etc…

  9. What a lovely room you’ve put together – very relaxing and welcoming! I like the grey, even though I’ve never been a big fan of grey! I didn’t think it could be such a restful, warm color! Now I need to do some re-thinking! I see so many cute things from you shop here and there! The ottoman is wonderful – have you thought of selling those? I’d like mine with casters please! LOL!

  10. Beautiful room!

  11. Wow! I love your decorating skill. Everything is so pretty and comfy. I just don’t have the gift for coming up with ideas for decorating. I can copy others quite well though.=)

  12. Looks so nice! I never realized that ladder went up to a loft – always thought it was for decoration. I love little spaces like that!

  13. I love it, Lisa! I have always loved gray or grayed green on the walls …. but did I miss something? How did you get lettering on the walls? Behind that floral framed 3D masterpiece?

  14. Looks great! Very cozy…makes me want to sit for a cup of tea.

  15. Your room looks beautiful! I really like the planks on the wall and the color. I’m crushing over your piano — that is my new favorite color!

  16. You really have a gorgeous home!
    I love all the colors you used, they aren’t colors I used so far anywhere in my home, but now I’m thinking about some soft green/blue/cyan…

    Love, Midsommarflicka
