We have been working on a beautiful house in Mountain Brook, AL, that we blogged about here and are installing the Living Room after the first of the year.
I thought I would give a little insight into the transformation that is going to take place with this space. It is going to be pretty and chic and filled with a mix of velvets, wools, leathers, linens, and silks. Charcoal gray, tan, cream and blush colors will be mixed in with iron, mixed metals, and different wood finishes.
We are mixing furnishings from two homes, and while the room was a blank canvas and several new pieces have been ordered, we have tried to incorporate as many of their existing things as we possible could. It’s going to be a good blend of new pieces and antiques.
Because of the size of this room, I want the space to feel like it has been collected over time. Pieces that will blend but nothing that feels too matched or contrived. While it will have more of a dressy feel than some of other parts of the house, I am big on designing this space so this large family will USE it. The room is going to be too pretty and take up too much space in the house for people to walk past it. A large sofa in the main seating area and a second seating area with two custom loveseats will provide comfortable seating for many.
The room has recently been painted from the pictures above and the rug is now installed. It already feels better with a few coats of paint and a floor covering that fits the space. Stay tuned as we install the furnishings and accessories in 2017.
