Return to the beginning

Hello, there, friends!!
There are just a few days till Easter, and instead of finishing my cleaning and planning meals, I am blogging and re-watching Grey's Anatomy episodes... I tell you, I am learning their lines!!:)) Decor-related I have already changed the window treatments in the living room, and I couldn't be happier, I am slowly coming back to my initial mood board!! With no budget at all, I can only plan for now. Looking at this mood board, I can see I need some more stuff:

The armchairs and the coffee table have already been painted black, and the look so much better, I have the grey sectional, the wall unit and the chandelier. For the past year I have had a grey Berber-style shag rug which I love, but now I dream of throwing in the pink. This one, I think:

...or this one..

I am going to pass on the cowhide, because my husband doesn't like the smell (???what???), and I still need a pink chair ...and I'm all set!! Also, I dream of finally buying a piece of marble to put on top of the coffee table... I keep procrastinating!!:)
What have I added to the original mood board? Well, a bench for this wall:

.....and a gallery wall too:

I am going to do this arrangement and the bench is going under it!!
I am planning to get some legs and diy a tufted bench in a deep green velvet,
 like the velvet in the armchairs:

It is proving impossible to capture the colour of the curtains, it's a deep green-hunter's green combo I just love, it feels so spring!!The amount of light that floods the room is amazing, my previous golden sheers were blocking all the light!!! I am so happy with the change!!

Here is the rug, which is great, and will be moved somewhere else, as soon as I buy the pink one!! It is going to look great, don't you think??
I am also needing a big plant on the right of the sectional and I have to decide whether to keep that big art above the sectional:
Here is it, together with the "old look"of the living room, blush drapes and all....

I'm excited!! Are you??

Fun rugs for spring

Spring has always been the time to change things up, either in your home or in your personal style, and for me this day has been the day!! I have just completed some changes in the living room and I couldn't be happier!! It was just getting back to the original plan, and it just proves that I should have followed my gut and just do it from the beginning!! A year later, and I've done it!! More on that in the following post!
Today: rugs!! Happy, colourful, vibrant rugs!! Rug Vista is the name of the site where I bought my living room Berber-style shaggy rug, and I couldn't be happier!! Because I am dreaming about a rug for the room I have yet to decorate, the former garage, I surfed the Rug Vista page and found these gorgeous rugs:

Tell me these rugs don't make you smile!!:)
