Updating the Living Room

Austin started renting this apartment in March 2015. When he first moved in, the living room walls were the first to get painted. Austin researched and chose Valspar Hailstorm Grey. It reads as a cool-tone white. In the right light, you can see the faintest grey tint. It really is perfect for the wood tones of the trim and flooring. He lived by himself for a few months and then our friend Logan moved in. The guys had a pretty awesome modern bachelor pad (thanks to Logan's awesome taste) for a year.

When Logan moved out, we started getting the house ready to be ours after the wedding. Moving in furniture, rearranging the layout and sourcing new pieces have all made this space look completely different. It's SO close to being done. Longer curtains, a few more throw pillows, some extra accessories and I think we can call it good. While you wait on the After photos (hopefully to come in the next few weeks), here is the before image of the living room when Austin moved in and our concept board for our new space.
