Living Room Decor Updates + Prettiest Chandelier EVER

Tuesday, July 18, 2017 4 1

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!

This is the last post in my 2 part Colour Inspiration Series featuring the new BEHR Marquee Paint Collection from The Home Depot.  You may have seen my 1st post featuring the beautiful baby blue hue, Blue Gossamer.  This post showcases the pretty pastel pink, Stolen Kiss (such a perfect name, isn’t it?!).


When I think of pastel pink for home decor, I tend to think of a little girl’s bedroom, because come on, what little girl doesn’t want a princess pink bedroom?!  After doing a few quick image searches, I found these absolutely stunning interior inspiration photos using this “not just for little girls” colour.  In the next few months, I hope to redecorate my living room, and this soft Stolen Kiss shade is definitely in the running for a colour option.
