Living Room Revamp

We officially moved apartments this week!  As much as we LOVED our old apartment, it is so exciting to have a change of scenery and a fresh start!  Our new abode is a smaller version of our former unit and couldn’t have been a more convenient move for us, so we are really grateful.  With that said, Hurricane Sandy had a bit of a negative impact, not surprisingly, in the fact that we will not have our beloved wall until next week.  YIKES!  So I am basically sleeping in the living room.  But, with everything unpacked and organized (for the most part), the roomie and I have decided our living room needs a little makeover!

We currently have a very floral theme, not by choice, but by default.  Our new vision is more of an updated/boho chic feel and I can’t wait to show you the before and after (eventually)!  For some inspiration I put together a few idea boards below:

What do you think?  Which number is your favorite?  Do you have any special tactics for making a small space feel big?  We had to throw out/donate A LOT of great things, but I think less is more when you’re working with a tighter living area.  Given everything that has been going on lately with Sandy and now the nor’easter, this is a perfect time to donate!  It’s not only rewarding but refreshing!  Here are a couple links if you’re interested in donating: Red Cross, Salvation Army (you can also schedule a pick-up for clothes, etc.), volunteering/donation links

Hope you are having a good week.  There’s snow on the ground here in NYC!  What is going on in the world?!
