Living Room Updates

Here is what our living room is looking like lately.. So i'll be honest I haven't done too many seasonal updates in here.. more 'overall' updates in this room. Currently it's transitional neutral space between fall.. however it will most likely stay like this until its Christmas decorating time ;) .. You can see all the changes by clicking 'Read more' below..

I decided to include some pics of how our living room looked last year around this time.. I'm liking it better this time round.. you?
The biggest change to this room is the WALL COLOR.. it looks so much BRIGHTER with a few coats of paint! I had it painted in Benjamin Moore French Canvas.. We painted all but one wall.. the main wall behind the media unit wall stayed the same.. because the plan is to add ship lap down the road behind our Ikea liatorp bookcases.. so we shall see ;) 

You can really see the difference in the wall colours in the picture below..
The second biggest change was this rug... a recent Joss and Main deal ;).. we changed out our simple 5x7 beige wool rug to a bigger, 6x9 trellis motif rug by Safavieh called Dallas Shag.. It helps brighten up our space and fits the space properly now .. no more design faux pas ;)
Below you can see a peek of another fairly new addition.. a planked ceiling that we white washed.. read more about that transformation HERE
Some simple burlap and jute balls in a ceramic bowl, on top of a antique ironing board that we added planks of cedar too..You can see more on that makeover HERE.. 
 On top of our antique cabinet I've displayed my collection of vintage pottery 
I recently purchased this great wicker basket on wheels during one of my cottage shopping day trips.. I look forward to this all year long!! It's a summer day shopping trip to all my fav. home decor shops and antique shops in the Muskoka area.. 'Me' time away from the kids.. Its so much fun!! 
Perfect sized basket for keeping all the toys in one spot.. when they aren't being thrown all over the floors :(
