quick living room revamp...

so, i was getting super tired of my living room style. it just bored me. it wasn't me. i was just tired of the dull colors and felt that it needed to be pulled together better. my darling friend abs lead me to fabricadabra which has the most ah-mazing pillows. so with a few pieces, some new pillows, and a bit of diy art work and i have a renewed space. i am still waiting on a pair of hand dyed throws for the two chairs in mustard yellow from india. i'm also am still looking for a pillow for hammond the dog's leather arm chair. but here are the before and afters of what i have so far. and if you dig the new art work and want to make your own, make sure and keep reading after the break.



abs sent me this website and i had to do it!! now this girl, jess' artwork, looks so freaking PRO-fessional. and let me tell you it's harder than it looks!!!!!! it took hours to do and the paint didn't go on the way i wanted, but i love the final result. her instructions are genius. it's super fly. 

love this picture of hammond the dog. my baby.
