One year later: living room and hallway

The living room is pretty much finished except for the two computer desks in the corners - I plan to make new ones as the budget allows.

Here's how it looked a year ago, and how it looks now:

What we did:
- primed and painted the fireplace inside and out
- added a rug (temporary - I need to find a bigger one)
- accessorised
- painted the little side table
- installed curtain poles and hung new curtains

What we plan to do:
- build a built-in media cabinet for the TV to hang above
- find a bigger rug
- replace the computer desks
- find a cool light fitting

Here's how the hallway looked a year ago and now. This hasn't been decorated yet.

- paint all woodwork
- paint the walls
- install a plank wall on wall behind mirror

This is the back passageway between the hallway and kitchen, then and now.
