Since we’re newlyweds who couldn’t afford to move into a new house after we got married we’ve decided that doesn’t mean we can’t give our apartment a whole new look. We’ve been here two years and we’re about to sign on for a third. We need a change! We’re going to embark on the ultimate apartment makeover, and we’re going to pace ourselves and take things one room at a time. Our living room is up first since we spend the most time there. Here are the before pictures. The room is a little Man (neutral earth tones, giant comfy chair, over-sized entertainment unit) and a little Wife (color block rug, round end tables, and glass coffee table) but it’s not at all “us”. So we’re going to try to make it that way before spring hits on March 21st.
Up first on the agenda is painting the space. I cannot stand the plain walls. (I’ve never lived anywhere that wasn’t splattered with color and I can’t believe I’ve survived in this room so long without it.) So, we’ve narrowed it down to four color choices (two entries from each of us); blue spruce, mint, scarlet, and butterscotch. Which do you think should win?
