Several months ago my friend, Laura, asked if I would be willing to help her makeover her living room. I was so excited to help tackle this space in her home, and the process has been a blast. Laura has an incredible eye for design and is quite the bargain hunter. We have very similar styles, and that made the search for treasures really fun.
Laura and I both leans towards a traditional foundation with modern touches. For main living areas we prefer big neutrals that allow us to have fun with color in smaller doses. Laura’s living room was in great shape and the bones of her historical home can’t be beat, but her style had evolved, and she was ready for the space to reflect that. There is literally not a single item left from before, yet the space feels collected over time.
I’m proud to say that this room is not only a mix of styles, it’s also a mix of price points and DIY vs. store bought. I’ll be sharing our approach to this long and narrow living room that needs to function in several different ways, along with lots of details in the next coming weeks.
Is there anything specific you’re curious about?
