The sitting room: after

Tadaa...!
Here is our new room. My little challenge: a black wall 'to sit' my painting on ;). I like the contrast between the matt of the wall and the fireplace shining. It does give a dramatic look to the room and I love it. The big accent it's my favorite chandelier, an antique found on eBay... I know I'm quite lucky with eBay. The drinks cabinet, the side table and the fireplace are also second hand, with a bit of work on them done ...by yours truly of course ;)
And then a lot of soft and cosy fabric, velvety cushions and a funky sofa - I fell in love with the vibrant purple.
Still a problem: the ugly old grey TV...  could we do without it, please???

I quite like the purple sofa too, in the more serious surroundings

Wow super cool, it has a very chic hotel vibe to it! Much better than the before. About the TV you could always stick it into a black cabinet in that little alcove or upgrade to a flat screen and stick it on the wall. It's nice when you can disguise the TV in a room.
