Condo Makeover Living Room REVEAL

[Disclaimer: We have partnered with Wayfair for this post. All photography and opinions are our own and are not influenced by Wayfair. Thank you for supporting the brands that support this blog!]

Remember when we first shared pictures of Maggie’s new condo? This place was dipped in guacamole green walls & was not very reflective of Maggie’s personality/style. We are firm believers that your space should be somewhere you LOVE to be and are excited to come home to. With that being said, Maggie’s new place needed a facelift & she graciously invited us to come and do just that! Condo living room with guacamole green walls before it was redecorated.

Crazy to think that this is what the room looked like just about 2 months ago. So much has been done to it in such a short amount of time! With a fresh coat of paint and lots of gorgeous furniture from Wayfair, we are EXCITED to reveal a space that we are confident is “so Maggie” <– and for that, we could not be more excited for her! What do you think?!

For a single lady who oozes style, we think we totally nailed her style! We are pretty obsessed with this place, so we really hope she’s not sick of us taking over her pad. Can we still come over, Mags? We promise we won’t bring power tools, cameras, or new accessories… just WINE!

Simple wooden bookshelf with fun accents looks great in this condo redecoration.

A round mirror on a soft grey wall looks great in this condo revamp. Relaxing on her beautiful couch in her redecorated light grey living room. The makeover was definitely a TEAM effort to say the least. We definitely could not have gotten to the decorating part without the hard work of Maggie, Big Mike (Bridget and Maggie’s Dad) or Pat (Bridget and Maggie’s mom). Once the patching, painting, kitchen cabinets and cleaning were done, the fun part started — the decorating. We teamed up with Wayfair, an online home decor store that if you don’t already use, you may want to consider ASAP! Purchasing Maggie’s furniture from Wayfair was AMAZING because the furniture is gorgeous and all of it was sent straight to Maggie’s condo. #WINWIN

A plant gets a little height from a grey and brown platform. Soft accents compliment this grey and white living room.

The best part of the delivery? None of the pieces were difficult to put together from the box, 10 minutes MAX. Their selection was so diverse and the pieces we found on Wayfair were so unique. The couch, for example. We had such a HARD time finding a couch that fit the space’s size and style until we searched on Wayfair. Same with the coffee table and end table; these pieces were so perfect for the space, and we just couldn’t find anything comparable.

Welcoming greige armchair with a basket of throws and pillows include a black and white striped throw. A black and white knit throw is a great addition to this neutral colored living room.

The shelf adds height between the two beautiful bright windows in this condo living room. A cute bar shelf with a crystal decanter is a great living room accent.

Fun golden moose head adds personality to this grey wall and condo update.  We will definitely be using Wayfair more in the future, heck… we wish we knew about them when we moved into our own homes! For more tips for online shopping and what strategies we used to purchase such large items online, check out this post. In short though, make sure you check & double check dimensions, read customer reviews carefully, and really research the colors of each item before you confirm your purchase. These steps will help ensure what you buy is what you expect it to be when it’s delivered.

Decorating Maggie’s place was extra fun because she was soooo easy to work with. Plus, we are so used to choosing decor that fits for both us and our husbands, this project was fun because we could make it as feminine and stylish as we wanted.

A vase of pink baby roses looks great against gold accents on this table. As much as we are obsessed with this new space, we do have to let you in on a little secret. We can’t let you leave without showing the “other half” of this makeover”. Check out the current state of the opposite wall in this space.

Wall awaiting a custom built-in piece for electronics. YIKES! We’re waiting on a custom BUILT-IN (so pumped!) that isn’t done being built yet. Once that is installed and styled, we will of course share. We are hoping it’ll be finalized in the next month or so, but you know how it is with construction… it never seems to go on schedule.
