Here’s how we created a New Traditional Living Room with some existing pieces. Warning: These before photos are worse than normal as the homeowners had water damage in another room and had to move things into the living and dining rooms.
Living Room Before
Are you thinking what I was thinking? As in, YIKES! I took a deep breath and said to Kim “Would you consider replacing the window treatments and putting in wood floors instead of the white carpet??” She said “Yes!”
Well, alrighty then! The next steps…deciding what to use that was existing and what to buy.
Living Room After
Here’s the view of the room now (the Christmas tree is yet to be decorated). It’s costly to replace everything so we kept the leather sofa, chair, coffee table, and accessories. And…
I also re-hung Kim’s photos after the room was painted and styled things up with existing accessories.
Our seamstress, Laurie did a great job making custom Kravet linen curtains. They can completely close so Kim was ok with removing the blinds (they were starting to fall apart anyway.
We made a nice reading spot by the fire with this WS Home modern wing chair on special (in one of their durable fabrics – Beach Club Linen), PB brass floor lamp and her antique little table. We also recovered her grandmother’s rocking chair in a coordinated Brunschwig and Fils stripe. I love the RH cashmere throw.
The before one more time…
We also spruced up the adjacent dining room which I will show you soon.
Howard and I are in New, Delhi, India right now. You are waking up and it’s already 14 hours ahead here. It’s wonderful– love the colors and textiles and friendly people…and food! Hope you are following along on Instagram (especially my stories)!
