House Tour: Living Room

10 Mar

This is another one of those posts where I’m like, “What? I didn’t write that post yet?”. I mean, I’ve talked about our living room’s gallery wall and pink chair plus every detail of our foyer (which is part of our living room), but I’ve never talked about the living room itself. It’s even been featured on Apartment Therapy and yet I haven’t given you a full tour of the room! So, since I’m sure you’ve been dying to know where I got every last bit of it, here is the full tour and resource list. (And of course a beige-tastic “before” photo to start things off!)

    Did you install the wood floors or were they under the carpet in the before pictures

      It was hiding under the bad brown carpet. Lucky us, right? We had it refinished about a month after we moved in. The stain is Dark Walnut.

    Hi Sue, thanks so much for coming over to my blog earlier. I’m so glad that I came over to check your daughter’s artwork. It is fantastic! Love your spaces and the before and afters are amazing. I’m officially in love with the copper balls.
