Living Room: Before and After

Last year, I submitted a decorating advice request to Apartment Therapy. I had gotten stuck halfway through my living room design project -- I just couldn't figure out how to pull everything together.

Here's a "before" shot of the section of the living room that gave me the most trouble (ack!):

And here are some other "before" shots of the living room:

And now, here are some "after" shots (and by after, I mean (a) after numerous trips to Target, IKEA (I firmly believe that a plan + an edited shopping list + IKEA in small, targeted doses = success), Pearl River Mart, Anthropologie and Brooklyn Flea, and (b) after two visits from my parents, during which they hung wallpaper and assisted with other decorating projects -- thanks, Mom & Dad!):

I've had so much decorating over the past few months that I'm sure my living room will continue to evolve. But I'm pretty happy with the progress I've made so far!
