Lounge - Revamped

A year ago, we our first project was to remodel the living room. We were so pleased with the results of our hard work, we decided to undertake our second project on the lounge.

Though it took a year to start, Revamp Lounge, was finally completed a couple Thursdays ago. Can't believe what a big difference some paint, new lighting, and framed art can make. Here are the before and after pics.
The white walls and no-personality neutral beige paint was just blah, blah, blah...
We painted two of the walls a rich Mayan Treasure.
Then painted one of the walls Royal Red and hung nine of Michael Godard's art. They are actually calendar prints our friends, Sean and Fawn, gave to Johnny. We love his martini and olives collection.
Then installed a 5-light track lighting with amber shades to replace the low-hanging brass pendant lighting (see photo above) that was originally installed. Simply put, it was definitely not our style.
Our lounge is finally complete...almost. We still need to hang up some bamboo window coverings and find a black carpet to replace the light colored one currently on the floor. But for now, our lounge is a much more inviting and comfortable place for us to relax and sip martinis in.

We changed up the lounge though it wasn't quite finished yet. This time, we picked up a couple of mahogany java bamboo roman shades from Lowe's to replace the vinyl mini blinds and a black shag carpet to switch out with the cream colored one. Now the lounge is finished compared to what it was like a couple months before.
