Our Home: One Year Later | Living Room

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

This room is one of our biggest transformations - I want to spend all our time in here because it's so bright and airy, yet I don't want to mess anything up! This room was completely empty when we moved in - minus the canvas that we had leaning up on the wall. We had a specific vision for this room and I think it really came to fruition!!

I knew I wanted winged back chairs for this room and Stephen got hooked on the French style - we felt these chairs were the perfect combination! We don't have a lot of lighter colors throughout the house so I know I wanted to use a lot of color in this room.

Here's a before picture to show how empty the room was when I first shared it:

I think I'd like to add a small table in between the chairs

We want to either build or buy a bench for under the pictures for this wall. I think it will really help our guests with taking their shoes off and putting them back on. At some point, we'll add pictures or something on the angled wall to the right.

We need to take more pictures to fill these frames lol

You can find my original living room post here. Feel free to ask where I got things :)
