Home Remodel: Living Room

May 26, 2017

My parents being from Poland has impacted my life in many ways. Many great and some not so great. Subject: hoarding. My parents (and I think other immigrants as well) are so proud of what they accomplished in the states and also ... what they purchased. Therefore, they don't ever want to throw anything out because they worked SO hard to get it. That describes my parents in a nut shell. That being said, I've had to slowly start remodeling my parents home to get with the times and the fact that I still currently live there, I want to be comfortable sitting on the couch and not sit on the 20 year old couches that came with the house they bought. I knew I wanted to get a big L couch because we have a big family and I just picture holidays all sitting together. We also had to paint all the walls white because the yellow design on the left wall has also been there since we moved in 20 years ago. Next I wanted to make it still feel homey, not too modern, but also bright and airy. The couch came with all those pillows but I purchased pillow covers from Bed Bath and Beyond to go along with the aesthetic and a couple new pillows from Ashley Furniture. I had to take down the blinds that the house also came with and we finally threw out that 700 pound Sony TV. Just kidding it was probably 350 pounds. The pink carpet is also something we will eventually get rid of but I had to work with it for now. I made a little gallery wall behind the TV because it was so bare without it, I will add some more photos one day since it still looks a bit bare. I purchased different black and white frames for it from Michaels and blew up some pictures I've taken and also blew up the Tatry Mountains in Poland for my dad so he would enjoy sitting there too. :) Below is what I came up with and I've linked all the purchases at the end as well. The 'before' picture is all the way at the bottom. What do you think!?
