My Living Room Makeover

Hey my loves,

I’ve been living on my own for over three years now and after I finished with my Bachelor thesis I decided that even though I will be a student for two more years, I do want an apartment that is more suited to my adult life. I also wanted a lot more color in my space as well as some much needed organization. So, right after my little holiday in the middle of July I started redoing my whole apartment – kicking it off with my living room.

The Before

Simplistic & Clean

I had a white canvas in 2016. I had white-ish floors and white walls, and I thought to myself, well I always wanted a grey wall. So I painted it grey (well, since I am horrible at painting, I had a little help here).

The couch I bought of Ebay for about 20 bucks. It was such a steal, because it’s condition was absolutely flawless and at that time a new couch just wasn’t in the budget.

I used some of my old IKEA furniture from my room like my ‘Billy bookcases‘ and a small coffee table.

I had to buy a new office desk since mine wasn’t in a good condition, I went with the IKEA ‘Linnmon Table Top‘ in white and paired it with the ‘Lerperg Legs‘ in white. I also had the classical ‘Alex Drawer Unit‘ in white to store all my office bits in.

I really wanted it to be as simplistic and clean as possible, but honestly I felt there was a lot of me and warmth to the room missing. But I really didn’t have the energy to change it around back then.

Now, when you’re redoing a room and you decide you want to invest in some quality pieces that you have for a long time it is necessary to really be sure of what style you want. As for myself, I knew that I wanted and needed a new couch and that I wanted to incorporate some more wood tones. I also wanted to fill the space where the office desk used to be. I decided to create a little office nook in my bedroom. I wanted my living room purely for living and entertaining. So I planned out what I wanted:

I also wanted to bring in some color and I was pretty set on finding a wallpaper that was an exact match:

Withered Rose

I love this color! It is one of my favorite colors and I think it is a beautiful warm color that makes every home feel so much more homey.

The Finished Result

I LOVE IT SO MUCH! It is so cozy.

Here is everything I added:

I hope this blog post gives you a good insight on how to transform your living room.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.
