1. Isn’t it so fun to switch things up? The change is drastic and very calming. I think the new wall colors gives a new life to your furniture. I’m with you living with it all for a while and then deciding what you want to tweak some more.

  2. Glad the shades still work!

  3. Janell Beals says:

    Amazing how bright and light the space is now, the color is so pretty and soft, looking forward to seeing the whole room put together! And how you ever got this color past the guy of the house…impressive! Janell

  4. Eliza says:

    I love, love, love your striped chair! The wall color looks great, so crisp and clean and bright, thanks for sharing.

  5. Don’t you just LOVE it? Your pink is very similar to mine and I love how it can look white but when you see write against it, you get the little hint of pink. I think your living room looks gorgeous and that little hit of Misia- love love!

  6. pretty! i, too, am going to be injecting some black into our living room. i think it must be spring in the air…i want to change up everything in my house as well! so annoying! πŸ™‚ your pink looks great, though.

  7. Heather says:

    that looks amazing! it looks so fresh and inviting…now i need to reconsider going darker in my living room πŸ™‚

  8. LiveLikeYou says:

    Love the pale pink, but love even more you convinced your hubby!!

  9. Rene says:

    The room looks so fresh and airy now. Even better is a man who will go for pink. Very nice.

  10. modern jane says:

    I just love it! And I love it even more that John loves it!:) Do you feel pretty in the room? Wearing pink is like natural blush for your cheeks.. should work in a room too!

  11. Natalie says:

    I LOVE it!! The pink is so subtle but pops with the right light. Excellent choice and love that your got your husband on board for a pink room!

  12. rebekah says:

  15. AlbeeLucky says:

    What a beautiful shade of pink and what a drastic change from the previous brown πŸ™‚
    Inspired to lighten up my humble abode.

  16. Kerry says:

    Love that Pink, and I can see why Jon would be okay with it! It’s not so in your face… it’s subtle and beautiful. Great choice (but that’s no surprise!)

  17. Julie says:

    Oh honey…that made the biggest difference! The room looks amazing; so much lighter.

  18. Courtney says:

    You CANT get rid of the striped chair!!! I LOVE it… if you do, ship it to me, haha! Seriously, I scrolled down and saw that first photo with the brown walls and the chair jumped out as so beautiful. πŸ™‚ The walls look great, too. :p

  19. Looks lovely. Pink shades on the wall are tough to get right and you really got it RIGHT.

  24. Ingrid says:

    Wow it looks beautiful! I am impressed you got your husband on board! It really brightens up the room. It is subtle but still makes a statement. I LOVE your tiered white shelf in the corner, can you tell me where it is from.

  25. Jenn says:

    I LOVE that you talked Jon into this … it looks so completely amazing!

  26. I love it! I’m so jealous I’ve always wanted a soft pink living room!

  29. It looks amazing!! Kudos to you for convincing your guy! Mine wouldn’t budge πŸ˜‰

  30. Looks so pretty and airy. Great color choice!!

  31. Absolutely lovely!!!!! I can’t wait to see it all complete…and gotta love pink! Also that red/white striped chair is divine…great job! And so glad your hubby’s happy! I have been wanting to paint my bedroom light pink for quite sometime, luckily my man is on board…he comes from a father whose favorite color is lavender and orange. Great job!

  32. LOVE IT! I painted my guest bedroom pinky-ish last year as well!

  33. Ingrid says:

    Wow it looks beautiful! I am impressed you got your husband on board! It really brightens up the room. It is subtle but still makes a statement. I LOVE your tiered white shelf in the corner, can you tell me where it is from.

  34. Sarah says:

    I love the pink, it’s perfection! I like the airiness of it. Can’t wait to see more of this room.
    I am dying to paint our guest room pink but still looking for the perfect fit.

  35. Beth says:

    Refreshing! I love how open your space feels with the lighter wall color. Are you still getting used to it? Thanks for sharing… β™‘

  36. OMG! I just finished painting our master closet/dressing room this exact shade! I had it color matched to the same Behr paint and 2 coats completely covered the dark tan we had before. I am LOVING the shade and how much brighter it looks in there. I’m planning to create a stencil of China Seas Aga and do it in a white pearlescent paint over the pink on 2 of the walls. Also debating bright yellow drapery in there and have been fretting that it might be too much with all the open storage but I love the color combo. Can’t wait to see how you finish the room!

  37. Stefanie D says:

    This is so gorgeous. It’s subtle and not overly girly.

  38. Did you say you would get rid of the white & red striped chair? I love it with those walls…..pink is just a lighter version of red and I think it looks so fresh and pretty together! Beautiful walls, by the way. My bedroom is the same colour — my husband is a bit colour blind and thinks it’s white!

  39. Such a drastic, but refreshing change. I’m not usually a pink girl, but I love how these walls look! I’m leaning towards lighter, more neutral walls myself and using decor for bright accents. I’m good friends with your SIL and was at your house over a year ago. I must say it’s even more gorgeous in person. πŸ™‚

      πŸ™‚ C

  40. Oh my — that is delicious!!! I’ve been dying to paint my dining room ceiling the perfect blush…and you found it for me!!!! xoxoxo

    and props for Behr paint+primer!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
