Our living room walls are painted Silver Sage by Restoration Hardware. Their paint is priced at $38, but you can buy samples for $3.95 to make sure you like the color. A way to save some money is go get some color samples of a variety of shades. Then once you've made your decision take it to Home Depot and they can match the exact color for about $16 depending on the type paint you want. Our's was free...the previous owners had already painted the living room the exact color we had chosen! How lucky are we???
I had already been decorating with red accents so the red was easy. We just did easy things like throw pillows and such.
So here's the entire living room. I'm not a great photographer so just bare with me.
Not sure if you can get the whole feel of the room. I'm a simple decorator, so less is more to me. (greatest purchase in the room are the couches. 2 for $325!) MR.P would say differently. He absolutely loves the ottoman.
Here's the view from the other side of the room. Having 2 couches in a room really does add so much more seating. And kind of closes off the living room area.
Here is our make shift tv stand. The "hutch" that the tv is on was grandparent's. It's by far my favorite piece of furniture in our house. It's really old, but has soo much character! I actually sledge hammered one of the doors off so that it would be a little more open. I think it turned out great! We got the book cases from Target for $100 each. Most tv stands are around $500, so I say this one was a great deal.
