A Touch of Unexpected

Living Room Makeover

I’m going to be doing several posts on the makeover of my living room.  I’m going to show you the room and then do a couple posts where I break down some different aspects of the room.  I really wanted to take this room from a boring brown sectional to a modern room with elements that included industrial pieces, glamour, and masculine pieces all in the same space.  My kids are older now and can take care of a room with some nicer furniture.  This was my opportunity to really design a room to my liking.   I waited and watched and then shopped for just the right pieces.  The room took about 8 months to be entirely complete, but I think it was worth the wait.  It is exactly the look I was going for.  I know I will enjoy this room for a long time.

I wish I had taken a picture of the room prior to the old furniture being moved out. However, I was not blogging then and the only pictures I have of that room are of us enjoying it on Christmas morning and I know my kids would NOT appreciate me posting those pictures. I hope you can just imagine a brown leather sectional in an L shape and a round glass coffee table being the only furniture in this large space.  Please enjoy the pictures of my new living room.

The metal bookshelves give the room an industrial vibe.
The custom chairs are my favorite part of the room.

Later in the week, I will be posting more on how to style coffee tables and shelves and how to add pops of bold colors to neutral rooms.  I will also share our family portraits and how I incorporated a photo gallery into this room to match the colors that already existed.

Thanks for reading.

Yours Truly,

    1. Thanks Cheryl. Those came toward the end to help pull the room together. I took a real risk with this room, but I like the way it turned out. I’m glad you like it too.
