The Evolution of a Living Room Before & After

The Evolution of a Living Room Before & After

In this previous post, I showed you my learning process and today I’m sharing with you the sweet client’s home who let me learn on her. 😉  Here are some before pictures- with a cute little guy in one of them!

If you’ll remember, here’s the moodboard we landed on after a few attempts:

Evolution Of A Living Room_0 WMThis spot pictured below, is to the right of the back door, which you can see in the before pictures was just an empty wall.  Her husband actually built this shelf himself!  Isn’t it amazing? I feel like every family with little ones needs a tidy and stylish way to store toys and kids’ books and things in the main living area.  It just isn’t feasible for everything to get put away into the kids’ rooms or a playroom at the end of each day.  Since I’m in that same season of life at home with preschoolers, I totally get it and I think your home should work for you, not the other way around.  Who says your living room has to be a place only for grown up things and all toys must be stored in a playroom?  Who’s rules are those?  This is your home, you get to decide how you use it.

This really wasn’t a major change.  They did decide to do the wood floors but that was actually after I decorated the space for them (yes we had a rug over the carpet- you can and should consider doing that when you have wall to wall carpeting to define a space!).  Just adding some new pillows, changing up the built ins, adding a small gallery wall, changing the lighting and colors made a huge difference.  Oh and did you spot my favorite Ikea Ritva curtains hanging as high and wide as possible?  They are making the most of that natural light and those windows look twice as big now!

Thanks for reading!
