RENTAL RENO // Lounge Before & After

Hello November!

I know, once again it has been a while, I have been a busy bee, and I can’t wait to share what I have been doing! In the mean time, say hello to our ‘new’ lounge!

We were fortunate to move in to it with a fairly neutral colour. So I don’t know if this is a Reno as much as a cover up. The only ‘major’ change is the curtains, traded out for cream ones from the warehouse, and the light shade, which we already had from IKEA.

But keeping the tones light and bright made the room feel fresh. Adding texture in the cushions and throws creates depth. And hanging some artwork gives it some personality.

Now, listen, it does not have to be expensive. The artwork on the wall is a photo I took whilst in America, I put some script over it and took it to a printer, cost me $12 to get printed. Then I hung it up with a couple of bulldog clips and drawing pins. The antlers are from trade me and the crosses are washi tape.  Bam. Done, dusted, happy. So get hunting.

Until next time.
