I'm a start you off with the Best After. This is where we are now, and where i hope we stay.
Previously we were here, with the Better After.
And it was all because of this light fixture. As it often is, am i right? I thought it made the room feel taller, and brighter, and lighter.
But then all you saw were RED CURTAINS. Loud and yelling and demanding all eyes on them. Opposite of lighter and airier.
And now it's all like, ahhhh. Pattern, and light colors, and nothing SCREAMING at you.
New gallery wall pattern (before there were just sconces with red candles on either side of the mirror).
Just to reiterate with the SCREAMING RED curtains.
And letting the light fixture lead after.
Here we have our very first after, along with aforementioned orangey glow and table runners turned window valances. Don't say this gal ain't crafty.
And our very first before, when the dining room was a bedroom.
debrownification of the living room, and well....you'll see.
In case you're new, and are wondering why there's a victrola in the corner...
