My New Living Room

Hi Ladies,
Whew! I finally moved in and finished decorating, so I thought I'd share my rooms with you over the next few weeks. Today is my favorite...the Living Room.

I had forgotten how hard it is to move to a new city and start a new job, so I really need to take those couple weeks off from blogging. It feels like it was so much longer, but I can't wait to start chatting with everyone again! :)Bright and Modern Living Room Decoration

So, the pictures below, are what my apartment looked like when I moved in...Nightmare!!! I had the great idea to sell all my furniture before I left, so that it wouldn't get chipped and damaged. However, I forgot about the fact that I would then have to box everything that I own. This is what it looked like when the movers left...totally overwhelming. I could've cried...or died...or left...but, I didn't...Thankfully, I didn't start work for another two weeks and I was able to find a wonderful lady on yelp (under unpacking/ organizing help), who helped me put away a lot of my stuff.

(Did I mention that I was also moving from a 2 bedroom apartment, w/ storage to a 1 bedroom w/o storage?) In addition, thankfully, my mother came up. With her help, I was able to turn this disaster area into the living room that you see above. It took about a month to buy/ pick out all the right furniture and then put it away, but in the long run...I guess that's not too much of a sacrifice.

I can't wait to start doing some fun stuff in the bay area...so far all I've done is eat yummy asian food and shop. (More on the asian food to come.) It's so beautiful here and there is so much to do...I can't wait!

Take care ladies, can't wait to catch up with you! :)



Here are a few of my items that are available online. I bought the other pieces of furniture at Home Goods (fantastic!) and Ikea.

  7. What a beautiful living room! I love love love the green! And the accent colors you chose to go with it are so pretty. I think it is pretty amazing that you did all that in such a short amount of time. I think it has taken me seven years to do my living room. LOL. Oh and that was a fantastic idea to get some help from a professional organizer. Moving is so overwhelming. Can't wait to see the rest of the apartment! Congrats!!

    1. Thank you! I have to say that the yellow and green sort of fell in together. I owned the rug and pillows. Then I saw the green chest of drawers and the little side table and the rest was history! :)

  8. Moving is crazy, I know, I moved from North Carolina to California last year and it was a nightmare. Well, your new living room looks amazing!!! The pillows are my favorite part, they look refreshing and stylish at the same time. Where are you living now?

    1. Ugh! I moved from North Carolina to Phoenix a few years ago...it's a nightmare! Did you drive? Are you originally from there? Thanks so much about the pillows...I'm loving all the green. :) I'm now in the Bay Area.
