Lighter and Brighter Living Room Revealed

This living room makeover has been years in the making.  For a while I have been over the burgundy color in my living room and dining room.  I finally took the plunge on Tuesday and had the rooms repainted.
The color we chose is Benjamin Moore Gray Mirage.  
The color is a gray/green and according to Candice Olson, it's one of her go-to colors and a neutral that can work with anything.  
Ah...I don't think it works with everything...I think the area rug is going to have to be replaced...I don't think it works so well.  
As for the furniture arrangement...we ended up with a totally different plan that any of the plans we had considered.  Creating floor plans on paper is great, however, they tend to lie.  

This was the plan we thought we were going with.  However, paper and reality are very different and having the piano on this side just ate up too much space...not to mention you couldn't get through to get to the living room.
We did switch up the sofa and loveseat which gave more room by the piano.
Over the next few days/weeks I will be on the hunt for artwork and a new area rug.  
Stop back tomorrow for the reveal of my dining room (which is much more complete).  
Can't wait to hear what you think.

I do love, love, love the color and the transformation it created! As far as the rug goes, it's gorgeous, but I think it just looks a little dated now, or too busy (my opinion). But I do agree with you, maybe it's the red in it. I just went rug shopping recently because I was in the same predicament, repainted and the rug was wrong! I love my new one, so it was a good thing! But I love the new look of your living room, so soft and serene! Can't wait to see the dining area!

The new color is so fresh and bright!! I think it was a great choice. I agree with the above poster who said it could be the reds in the rug that make it look "wrong" for the space now. Maybe if you don't want to get rid of the rug you could tie in the art with the colors of the rug.

What a difference, Judy! I'm sure it is to you, too, going from the darker burgundy color to something this light. I like it and it really does brighten up the space. Can't wait to see your dining room!

I tried to leave a comment but we are in the midst of an ice storm and I keep loosing my server. I once had a red room and loved it, but got sick of the dark closed in feeling and so, like you went with a lighter color. But I love your red room because it makes the statement of COZY. I love looking at red rooms. I know how you feel ...have fun changing it up.

Your living room transformation is lovely. I really like the wall color. Maybe it's my monitor, but I think the rug works well. It certainly ties in the ottoman. I would do as Elizabeth suggested and pull it all together with artwork and little accessories that work with the colors in the rug. Just my humble opinion. The rug is gorgeous.

Judy, I'd like to invite you to share your lovely living room at my monthly blog party Every Room In The House. We're partying in The Living Room this month and your post would be a great addition. Here's the link:
