Good morning design lovers,
We are coming back to work off a long weekend here in Canada and I’m easing my way back into work this week starting with a blog post. My trusty photographer has been off for the past few months having a handsome baby boy so I apologize for the hiatus on Room reveals but she’s back and therefore I’m back. I want to share this very cheery, happy, pretty room with you.
The homeowner found me on social media but I actually used to hang out with her big sis in elementary school. I was so delighted to hear from her and find out (she would be totally embarrassed that I’m telling you this) but she’s a doctor. Hello! Smart, beautiful, driven, and kind. I had So much fun catching up with her and creating a comfy/cozy space that her family can relax and enjoy in.
Here’s what we came up with:
The room was pretty much empty when I came to the house. She did have these two armoires and coffee table floating in the middle of the room. Hand me downs from mom and dad. The armoires has an 80s type pinky wood finish. We decided to keep all the hand me downs but paint them a soft blue to freshen them up.
This room is a big room with vaulted ceilings, but we still wanted to have that intimate and cozy feel. We added in this large custom sectional from urban barn. It really anchored the room and forms the seating area. One upped only by the custom blue velvet urban barn chairs. So Lux and so comfortable. They are everything!
We went back and forth on a few fabrics for the drapes but in the end the homeowners wanted something fresh and classic. White linen to the rescue. We wrapped every window in simple classic white linen and added our color through the pillows.
The large oversized clock is also from urban barn and drapes and pillows from Tonic living.
Throw blanket, little ottomans, and accessories are the result of an epic homesense run. One of those beautiful mornings when you get there right as the doors open and your world is full of possibilities.
We needed a large rug to anchor this room. A 9×12 for sure. We got this beauty for under $500 at my new favourite rug stop Wayfair. You literally click and it shows up at your door a few days later. It’s amazing.
These two art pieces we snagged from niche decor in Aurora. They are colourful and fun like the rest of the space.
We debated back and forth wether to paint the coffee table but in the end decided to leave it as is. We both loved the pineapple feel of the legs and my homeowners loved that it belong to mom and dad and had a lot of memories.
The homeowners eventually want to do big beautiful built ins on the tv wall. But those bad boys are expensive. Basically the same budget for the built ins as the rest of the completed room. So those can wait. A little inexpensive media unit will sit there until they are ready for those.
Because this room was so large we decided to take advantage with extra seating. Two console tables were added behind the couch and 4 dining chairs behind those. It’s the perfect spot if you are having a ton of people over to watch a game, or a movie, or around the holidays, or even when their little one is old enough for homework. The point is it’s a very versatile space that can accommodate a lot of people or feel cozy for two tired parents to kick their feet up once the little one goes down.
I’m so in love with this Space and I know the homeowners love it too. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll be back soon with more room reveals. So many new and exciting projects on the go 👍🏼
