As promised (you thought I would forget?), I bring you the oh-so-perfectly casual living room of our Westwood Wonder home.
When we arrived for our initial consult, we learned that this room, although historically was used for more of a sitting room, was going to be used as the main entertaining and living space. Because of this, we needed to accommodate a large group of guests, but it still needed to be homey and comfortable for when it’s just the (almost) four of them. Here are a few key things we did.
We kept the homeowners’ sofa because it was recently (and beautifully) recovered and perfectly vintage. We had custom pillows made to liven it up a little and make it the focal point in the room.
We didn’t want to disturb the beautiful bay window, but the window at the end of the room was feeling a little left out and lacked style. Custom curtains hanging high and wide give such great balance to the room, and the colors were exactly what the homeowners were wanting.
The room is very long and needed to have a furniture plan that kept it cozy. These four amazing navy chairs are not only big and comfy for movie nights, but by placing them in close proximity to the new, taller coffee table, they are perfect for game night too.
Floor plants always add height and texture to otherwise sad corners, and there’s no shame in fake trees if you’re a black thumb (like this girl).
We carried in the paint from the foyer which helps the rooms feel more connected, and paired with new can lights (can we get an amen for can lights?), the room is so much lighter and brighter.
Are you thinking to yourself, “Hey, I like those tall wingback chairs!”? Well, I did, too, but they needed a makeover. Come back next week for the final Westwood Wonder space and to see those chairs looking oh-so-handsome!
