living room taking shape

Remember this idea board I shared with you a while back?


Well, the furniture has arrived and the room has started to take shape. So you can appreciate the transformation, even in its early stages, here are the befores.


The fireplace is on an angle from the front entry.


The living room opens to the right of the fireplace. A big space. A big awkward space with that angled fireplace. You can see it was used mainly as storage and a play area! But now here are the main pieces in the space. I showed you the ikat chair earlier this week. She ties together all the shades of grey and caramel in the room.


It's amazing what a difference the sconces make. Good lighting is essential.



And yes, those are the chairs. Remember the chairs? My clients loved them too. Lucky. And the rug is the HomeGoods find. Lucky again. And with the rug savings, it kind of worked out that they splurged on the leather chairs.


Now the fun accessory part. Stay tuned.

Oooooh! Looks so good so far. You are so right about the sconces. I never would have thought to use them, but they are absolutely perfect for the space.

Nice job. That rug with the chairs is a home run. I can't wait to see how you dress the windows. That is always a tough decision for me.
