Living Room & Dining updates...

I can't say that the carpet we had in our living room and dining was bad or anything, but the vinyl in the kitchen floor definitely needed to be replace at some point.  Well, we decided to replace it all with a walnut wood laminate.  It is much easier to take care of with pets.  We chose a laminate because real wood was more expensive and wouldn't last under the toe nails of our lovely girl, Roxy, who loves to run around the house.

Completed floor, next on to painting...

We also chose one wall in our living room to be the accent wall, which I wallpapered.  We painted the walls a soft neutral, so as to not fight with the wallpaper and other accents in the room, like my red sofa! :)  Things are still a slow work in progress, as I would love to change out the area rug and a few other items in the room, but that will have to be for a different post.  Major things first and minor accent adjustments will happen later.

Painted, but without the wallpaper on the white wall

 Finally able to hang my clock and other accents


Now to focus on the kitchen...
