I've slowly been removing the dark colors from the house and trying to lighten things up. Now that i'm done with the family room, i'm working on the living room.
Here is what it looked like before:
I liked it, but I was tired of the red and brown. Unfortunately, with that rug, I couldn't do much else. So.....

The second step was new throw pillows:
The third step was new drapes:

The last steps are new artwork behind the couch and (maybe) to paint the room a fresher color, but I can't get motivated to do it! I dread repainting this room and it's high ceilings......
Here's the room now:
(Sorry about the photo quality..... I have a terrible camera.)
