New decoration. Before & After pictures

November 24, 2016

OMG! It is almost weekend and this week has just flown away. The best of everything is that my shoulder is recovered and I have no pain which feels fantastic. The best part is that my love is almost past the flue even though he yet has to get rid of the rest of it. However, for not so long time ago I started to decorate our home for Christmas and we really loved the way we had made our home and if you haven’t read the post then you can do so Here. Anyway you can see the pictures below as well that is before the new decoration.

Today I went for shopping while waiting for Johan while he was at work. There is a lovely shop next to his work place where I tend to go window shopping while waiting for him. Johan told me that we really needed a carpet since the floors get a bit chilly during wintertime. I found two lovely carpets that he also found appealing and we ended up buying them along with some other stuff.

After we came home the carpets gave me an idea to rearrange how the furnitures were placed in our home. We felt that it was not proportional since the table was placed far away from the kitchen and the sofa near to the kitchen. Actually the only things that we bought there were the carpets and some red candles. The puff chair and the other chair were on our balcony when we moved in but we found them more suitable in our living room. We have a special plan for the balcony that we have not started on and I will give you a blog post when it is done. You can see the changes on the picture bellow ♥


We are really happy with the end result and we feel that our home is better now since it is kind of divided into a living room and a kitchen. It was sort of unnatural to cross the whole living room from the kitchen to get to the table but now it is placed close to the kitchen and the living room is placed near to the balcony which we have plans for. I can reveal that we will make it an extended part of our living room.

Now I am really exited to know your opinion about the changes we made. Do you prefer the old one or the new style which you can see on the pictures above?

    Love the new style 🙂 It really opens up the room so much to have the sofa closer to the window (terrace?).
