This past week I finished an Inspiration Board for a young couple who recently moved into a little old home with tons of character.
Their living room is small but quaint with a central fireplace, built in bookshelves, and great hardwood floors. We were starting 95% from scratch, as the only living room items that moved with them were a console table and a flat screen TV. As newlyweds and young professionals, my clients wanted to invest in some quality furniture and accessories in a classic style that will grow with them over the years.
Today, I am featuring their Inspiration Board and a couple ‘Before’ pictures. In a few weeks, I hope to have some great ‘After’ pictures to share with you.
And here is the space we’re working with:
Lighting is important! As you can see, there are no overhead fixtures and the front window faces West so there is no direct sunlight during the day. Comfortable seating is also important since they want to be able to entertain friends and family in this main room. Luckily the lady of the house is an excellent sewer (she sews gorgeous quilts by hand!) so she will be making her own drapes and pillows; through a mixture of fabrics and pattern we’ll add a little life into this living room. I am very excited to see the finished space. Stay tuned, I’ll share pics when I have them!
