Design Update: Living Room

Remember what it looked like before?

Well, we've made some changes. We still have a lot to do, but we're getting there with the design of our living room!

We've painted our walls a gorgeous warm grey that really ties the living room and dining room together making it a very cozy space.

We picked up this little number from the antique market. We just love it. It adds a bit of glamour to the room and the deco brass lamps fit perfectly. Plus, it gives us a ton of extra storage! Perfect!

We've mounted our TV on the wall, which really opens up that corner of the room. We're still working on what to put below it, but for now we have a small modern white shelving unit to hold our components.

We've had a great time sitting in front of the fire on the recent blustery evenings we've been having. This place is really starting to feel like home.

Although the room is great as is, there are a few tweaks I want to make to the design to really finish it off. The cover of the sofa is projecting a blue tone in this room which isn't working for me, so I'm getting a dark grey wool cover come January when they're back in stock.

The next step is a rug and accent pillows. The current pillows are really just a mis match grouping from pillows I've used in the past. I'm loving these pillows from Great Jones Home that were recently featured on coco+kelley (the ikat multi color behind the elephant pillows).

I think they would add a great pop of color to the room. I'd tie them in with coral colored shades for the brass lamps on the cradenza. I'd finish off the room with this rug...

I think the dark color will really help ground the room and I'll never have a light colored rug again after the flokati. It is filthy!! Of course I'll spruce up the place with great accessories and a piece of art above the mantle. We also have this mirror from Brocade Home that is going up this weekend between the lamps, above the cradenza.

Fun! I'm really excited about the direction we're headed in. I can't wait for it all to be done. I'll keep you posted as the room transforms!

It looks fantastic! I love the sideboard with the lamps on it – that dark rug would go really well with it.
