Our Living Room is Done!

In our house, our sunroom/kitchen is the most used and populated area of the home. Our living room has always been in a state of not-quite-done. We didn't use it as much as our sunroom so it got ignored for awhile. However, we've found that it's nice to hang out in there when the kids are watching a movie in the sun room- we can close the door and have an adult conversation. It's also the room that's held our Christmas tree and all our decorations for the last two Christmases.

The room has great bones with a beamed ceiling, original wood doors and molding and is one of my favorites in the house. Right away, we switched out the sconces in the room for these from West Elm, which gave felt more period appropriate than the sconces that were in there originally. We also took down some heavy drapes and added the white floor length curtains.

We've had just a couch in the room and rotating chairs that always found a better place to live in the house. Anyway, I saw these chairs online at Target months and months ago and fell in love. They were out-of-stock forever and finally came back in stock just a few weeks ago.  I got two chairs and a coffee table to finish off the room and it feels exactly how I want it to feel. It has a neutral palate with a definite nod to our California roots.  The dresser is from Hayden's room (he needed to switch to better open the drawers on his own) and that and the basket next to it are my hidden toy storage for the room.

I got 2 new shibori pillows from Etsy and I think the tie in nicely with the lamps and the blue vessels on the mantle.

If you want to get the look of our living room, I made design board with as many of the original items linked as possible. The art and console table are handmade and the dresser in here is a vintage find.  (The chairs I got from Target are no longer available but the exact same chair is available on Overstock, just at a higher price.)
