Black, white and wood. Living room reveal.

When we first moved in the house we are currently renting, I wished the Landlord had agreed on me painting all the dated wooden ceilings and trims white. Since he did not however, I decided to embrace the wood as much as possible and work with what I have :)

Here is what the living/dining room looked like before:

We painted the walls a very light shade of grey.
I decided to add black and white accents to compliment the wood.
I found an awesome b&w striped rug for only Euro 20 at a local store.

Gallery corner wall with mismatched frames:

Antique wooden secretary desk and photos:

DIY vintage suitcase side table:

Discounter steal:  Silhouette clock for Euro 5 (!).  Free printables I found here and here, simply hung on a twine string:

Rhino bookends: Urban Outfitters. Curtains: IKEA

Linking up to this awesome party!
