Spring Living Room Redo

Hi everybody!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  We took advantage of a couple days off to give the house an organizing and cleaning overhaul from top to bottom.  Since lots of our Ikea loot found permanent homes over the weekend, I thought it was time I shared the updates!

If you’ll remember the last couple times I showed you our living room, we were getting ready for cooler temps.  We started with purple drapes.

And shortly thereafter switched them out for these gold-y green ones.

One set of panels on each side of the fireplace has never been quite enough fabric for privacy at night, so a couple curtain panels were definitely on my list for our trip to Ikea.

Little did I know I would stumble upon the perfect curtains which would inspire a living room makeover just in time for spring!  Are you ready to see the result?  Here it is!

I fell in love with these leafy drapes when I saw them in person last weekend.  I’ve always been a big fan of boldly patterned curtains, and the colors in these babies were the perfect addition to our living room.

We took the opportunity to switch up some furniture and accessories as well.  I don’t think you’ve seen this view of our living room lately, but there’s our new TV – a replacement for this bad boy (wow, our living room sure has changed in the past year, huh?)!

This is another view you might not be used to seeing.  Our little loveseat has found itself all over this living room in the past couple years, but it always seems to end up on this wall across from the two chairs.

With all the pattern going on between the curtains and chairs, the peacock and Home Sweet Home pillows were replaced with the neutral ones from our sofa.

Our little white birdie and revamped end table got to stay though!

You might remember these colorful glass vases from our spring mantel from last year.  I liked the wreath I made a few months ago so much that I decided to leave it and add the vases in little groupings beneath it.

Here’s where our two lumbar pillows ended up.  They make me smile every time I see them. 🙂

I’m actually surprised our cat Tina isn’t in this photo.  This is one of her favorite spots in the house to get some sun and a view of our backyard.

These mirrors hang on the short wall just off our entryway and give an interesting view of our gallery wall.

So there you have it!  Our living room overhaul, inspired by our fun new curtains.  Looks like we’re welcoming spring with open arms at Heardmont!

Did the beautiful weather put you in spring cleaning mode this weekend too?

(Side note: You probably thought you were going to see our finished master bath today, didn’t you?  Sorry to disappoint, but it might be a couple more days.  Sometimes you just need to take a renovation break to stop and smell the roses – or the daffodils, in our case!  I hope you understand – and thanks for reading!)
