family room: before & after.

18 October 2010

This post could also also be called My Family Room Grows Up. Really!

Many moons ago, I complained that my family room looked like a dorm room. That's totally not hyperbole, people. I had a futon, mismatched picture frames, a crap load of clutter on the kitchen (in the foreground), and the Vim-green walls that look like they've been there since the 70s.

But now, with the new paintjob, the new couch, the made-over lamp, beautiful framed pictures painted by Mini and Lam, and a little decluttering, it's totally brilliant, my lovelies! Have a look at these Before and After shots...

Before.


After.


So, what do you think?!

Well, once I'm settled into my new pad in SoCal, I'm sending you a place ticket to come and help me decorate...

Does THAT answer your question? It's fantabulous!

What a terrific transformation! (and I didn't believe it until I saw it, but your before pic totally does look like a dormroom). Great job making the room grow up :)

I bet the desk doesn't stay that tidy for long!

I love it, it's beautiful...

I notice how moving or removing the PC in the corner appears to have been a non-starter.

I know better than to question it, I just noticed it!
