Our living space has come a long way. There used to be a wall between the two rooms, right behind where the couch sits now. The kitchen and dining space were covered in bird house wallpaper, the trim was standard size, builder-grade oak, and the floor was linoleum. The living room donned a low quailty beige carpet and all the oak woodwork to match the kitchen.
The space receives light all day long, and I wanted to play that up, lightening up the walls but grounding the space with the dark floors.
I spend the most time in this space. When I only had my son, I seemed to have more time to switch things up and really decorated for the seasons. I used to keep everything very neutral and add pops of color for the different times of year. While I enjoyed that, it also seemed to limit me. After making some pillowcases out of the Orangerie fabric, I now feel like anything goes with the color palette of the floral. I love the freedom it has given me to buy what I love, not just what “goes with my stuff.”
I’ll be back later in the week with more details on this space, specifically furniture sources and some stories about certain pieces. Please let me know if there is anything in particular you are curious about. Have a wonderful week!
You can see the details, including the custom paint color, and a few more shots of the space here.
