New Living Room

Today I wanted to show you our new living room.  

This is the before.



A room full of trim.

And the finished room (pre-furniture).  We opened up the two entries into this room, they had previously been the size of double doors, but we took out the doors and moved the walls out and up.  It really has an impact on the feel of the room.

Come on in to our cozy living room.  We actually like hanging out in here now.

We still need to buy a few more decorative items, something for the mantle, top of the piano, and the walls. We may add a coffee table but we aren't sure what we want yet.  I am sort of leaning towards no coffee table, as I like the open path to the couch. 

If anyone is interested:

Hardwood Flooring - AA Floors 
Fireplace - Marsh
Fireplace Tile - Centura
Mantle - Wayfair
Rug - Ruggable
Leather Chairs - Crate and Barrel
Couch - Crate and Barrel
Blue Chair and Ottoman - Monte (old, from when E was born)
Side Tables - Article
Lamps - Article
Painting - Souvenir from Peru, framed at Frame It on Bloor
Pillow - Homesense


  1. I LOVE it!!! I especially love how light and bright it looks. We have no "middle of the room" coffee table and we love the openness of our living room. We have the piano bench we can use in a pinch but we use it maybe once every couple of years. Other than that, we just have end tables to put things on.

  2. Wow, what a difference. It looks so modern and fresh. You could always use that ottoman by the chair as a coffee table if you needed it. Looks great!

  3. I love it, Sarah! Looks so fresh, bright and open.

  4. It looks great Sarah! So bright!

  5. So cozy and sophisticated. I love the white couch mixed with leather chairs and navy. Stunning.
