The Evolution of a Living Room

I’m so glad that I’ve taken so many pictures of our house before we start changing each room.  I was digging through my iPhoto Library and found a ton of photos of our house in various stages of completion.  Jake and I started making this house our home together when he moved in December 2008 (two months after we started dating – we were rebels.), and going back through the photos of how our living room has evolved in three years absolutely amazes me.

The two long walls in the living room started out a beige color and the two shorter walls were a navy blue.  Check out the 20″ Sony TV – straight from my dorm room!  The ceiling was a boring white with that awful ceiling fan.  A little piece of history though – Jake and I had our first smooch on that couch in front of that itty bitty TV!

Once we moved in together, we had more furniture than we knew what to do with.  We moved Jake’s leather couches in, my beaten up, covered in dog hair couches out, and got rid of the navy walls in hopes of lightening the room up.

Shortly after that change, we decided we didn’t love the leather sofas because they didn’t allow enough room for us to cuddle together, and definitely didn’t allow for enough room for the dogs to cuddle with us (priorities!).  Lucky for us, we ended up with a roommate who just so happened to come along with a big squishy sectional sofa.  And whom bought a condo several months after moving in with us.  A condo too small for said sectional, so we inherited it!

As comfy as that sofa was, we decided we were ready to be grown ups and overhaul the room so that it had a cleaner, more cohesive style.  It’s not complete quite yet, but leaps and bounds ahead of where it was a couple of months ago!

Still have quite a bit of work to do, but we feel like we are headed in the right direction!
