Since you've checked out the dining room, let's mingle into the living room.
This was a long, kind of awkward rectangular room. It was actually an add-on to the back of the house, so it had a bit of a different vibe than the rest of the home. The main goal of this space was to try to lighten up the palette, without painting the fireplace white...which is something I really want to do, but the homeowner is not quite ready yet.
And here is what it looks like today:
So, ignore the lamp cord. It's kind of an eye sore. Ick! I do the love the lamp though. It makes a pretty bold statement in person.
Besides that, I'm really happy with how we were able to lighten up this space and make it more cozy. I played with various textures and neutral colors to create a calming and welcoming space.
We were able to incorporate pieces Lauren already owned, including the leather furniture, artwork, a mirror and some tabletop styling items.
Isn't that doggy the cutest? We picked him up at either Home Goods or TJ Maxx. I can't remember. Then we dressed him up with some of Lauren's jewels. I found the tiera-topped bottle in Lauren's stash of things. Then we added a glass jar and coasters, both via TJ Maxx.
The pieces below are also a combination of items Lauren already owned mixed with new things I picked up during shopping adventures.
