Living Room Decor Updates + Prettiest Chandelier EVER

Gallery Wall Inspiration

 

It’s been almost a year since we started redecorating our condo, and WOW, I did not expect it to take this long! But I’m so excited to say that we are almost done! I first shared our living room decor last December, and I’ve since made a lot of changes and new additions to the space. I still have a few things to do, like style our bar cart (not shown here, but I’ll share soon). I’m also still wanting to make a few changes to some things in these photos, like the styling of the cabinet and a few photos on the gallery wall, but I think I’ll always be making tiny changes and adding cute new decor items to the room.

 

The one item that I’m, by far, most excited about is our new brass chandelier from Lucent Lightshop. I first discovered this stunning shop on Etsy about 2 years ago, and immediately fell in love with their sputnik light fixtures. I was completely obsessed with their fixtures, and when I saw the Vortice Chandelier about a year ago, I knew that I needed to own this beauty. Since we rent our condo, I hesitated to purchase light fixtures, as these feel more permanent. However, I couldn’t stop thinking about this chandelier, and I knew it would completely change our space. I will definitely take this light fixture with me once we eventually buy our own condo, as I know this will look amazing in any room in the future.

Seriously, this chandelier makes me smile every single day. I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s truly a beauty, and so well made. I highly recommend Lucent Lightshop for gorgeous and affordable lighting fixtures!

 

I also added a ton of decor objects, vases, candles and new pillows to the space. If you can’t tell, I LOVE color, and kept everything bright and colorful. I also changed every photo on the gallery wall, except for one (a photo from our wedding). I bought my first Slim Aarons photograph (one of my 2 favorite photographers), and added 2 Gray Malin prints (the second of my 2 favorite photographers) to the picture ledges. I also switched all of the black and gold picture frames to all white. The photos are already colorful on their own, and I feel the white frames look cleaner. I love how the gallery wall turned out!

Dining Nook Look + Gray Malin Love

Earlier this week, I shared a sneak peek into our bedroom (hope you enjoyed it!), and today, I’m super excited to feature some progress photos of our tiny dining space. And by “tiny”, I mean “TINY”! This wall with our table is only 6.5′ long, and it’s in the open space of our living room. We can literally only fit 2 chairs (I pull out 2 more folding ballroom chairs when we have guests), and the table had to be a max width of 36″ (tough to find)! This white IKEA table in the photos is temporary, until our marble tulip table arrives in December (that was a nightmare story that I’ll fill you in at a later time)! #cantwait

 

In my bedroom, the element I was most excited for was my Chasing Paper speckle wallpaper. In this space, this gorgeous Gray Malin photograph wins hands down for bringing me the most joy everyday (although I’m pretty thrilled with my chairs too). I’ve wanted a Gray Malin photo for years, and I’m completely OBSESSED with his work. For months, I would literally visit his website almost every day trying to choose which photo I wanted for our space. I finally narrowed it down to this stunning “Almafi Sunbathers“, and the really playful “Skinny Dip” Flamingo photo. Justin really didn’t have any opinions on how we decorated our condo (his only requirement was that it was “livable”), but I asked his opinion on this photography because I really couldn’t decide. He chose the Amalfi Sunbathers, so that was the winner!

 

This photograph is definitely a statement piece in our living space, and one I’ll know that I’ll cherish for many, many years to come. If you haven’t seen Gray’s work, definitely check out his website ASAP! You’ll fall crazy in love at first glance. And…he just posted a Black Friday sale, where you can save 30% off all photography with code TURKEY30 until Monday! This is his biggest sale of the year, so if you are debating buying a photo, NOW is definitely the time!! I’m also strongly considering purchasing one of his small sized (11.5″x17″) photographs for our picture ledge gallery above our sofa, but as always, I’m struggling to narrow down my top choice. I’ll definitely share it will you once I purchase it!

 

If you’re obsessed with Gray’s photography, also be sure to check out his book, “Beaches“. I literally purchased it the day it was released. I’ll often sit down with a glass of wine, flip through all of the stunning pages, and dream of being on one of those sandy beaches, sipping sangria and soaking in the sun. #summerdreaming

My second favorite element of our dining nook is definitely our turquoise and gold chairs. As soon as I saw these, I was smitten. I knew I wanted to reupholster them in either a peacock/teal blue or a cheetah print. Again, I asked Justin, who was leaning towards the turquoise, so that’s what we went with. You may have seen my sad story about these chairs on Instagram. Long story short, I had them reupholstered, and they came back with a big scratch down one side, and stinking of smoke. The awful smell has finally disappeared, and I’ve filled in the scratches with a gold leafing pen, but wow, it was stressful!

 

Once our new table arrives, this little space will be complete. I hope you enjoyed this look into dining nook, and I’ll be sharing a peek into our living area later next week! As always, thank you so much for following along!!
