I'm delighted to be sharing my living room reveal with you all today! We recently shared my kitchen and breakfast nook reveal, if you missed it, you can catch up on that here!
As we mentioned in my kitchen reveal, our home was builder basic with no character or originality. Which we chose to leave that way during the building process because I knew I wanted to add my own touch once the bones of the home were built.
First thing first was getting rid of that awful carpet. I wanted a bright, cohesive look for flooring so I chose this gorgeous hardwood by The Garrison Collection in Newport. The floors complimented the wall color so well which is Alabaster by Sherwin Williams and the trim is Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore (one of my favorites!)
My husband and I love having friends and family over, so having an open and inviting concept was definitely #1 on the priority list. I love the feeling of sofas that aren't identical. It creates a beautiful contrast and helps add character to the room. Along with the 2 sofas, we added these gorgeous boucle ottomans to invite additional seating.
Since we wanted a space where people could come over and kick their feet up to watch the game or just hangout, Jared insisted on his one input being the largest tv he could find.. although I didn't necessarily agree from a designers stand point, sometimes its easier to make them happy and just agree, since I got what I wanted for the rest of the home ;)
To ensure the TV didn't become the focal point of the room, we had these stunning built-ins custom made and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. If you have been following us for awhile, then you will know that shelf styling in kind of our thing. I incorporated pieces from LW Home along with some other gorgeous pieces from a few other shops!
The final touch to our living room was making it feel like home. I love having fresh flowers on the coffee table, plenty of books that double as great styling pieces, and cozy pillows on the couch for comfort and style.
To continue my home reveal, next time I will be sharing my kids' rooms and how I designed them as rooms they can still be kids in but grow into. Stay tuned!
Take a look at the before photos!
