On Friday I shared a few gorgeous images of royal blue velvet. That may have been a mistake, because I don't think anything I show you now will compare, but none the less, I'm pressing on with my reveal. :-)
Let's start with how our living room looked after we moved in to our new house and added lighting to the ceiling. This picture has too many "before" pieces to list. But what I really want you to notice are the window coverings. *Please know, I don't think that they were the worst option on the planet.* Like most elements in our home, they weren't horrible they just weren't me.
When we changed the wall color we removed the vertical blinds so the holes could be patched. I still wasn't exactly sure what fabric I wanted for the windows, and it was summer time,
so I didn't feel the urgency to decide. Plus, we were paying for all the non-sexy changes,
like new electrical work and lighting in every room.
Eventually winter arrived and we needed something for extra warmth, not to mention privacy. Then I saw West Elm having a sale on their velvet panels. Bam. That was it.
Here is our slider now.
Thank you for checking out our latest addition to the living room.
Today is my oldest son's 7th birthday, so we're taking it easy, sledding with friends, and going out to dinner. Cheers to making memories with our babies!
