Living Room Redo details

Hi Everyone

Thank You all so much for your
wonderful comments about our Living Room redo
I adore each and every one of you and
to read all of your sweet comments

Many of you wanted to know some details....
This picture above is the inspiration for our living room
it hangs on the side wall of the fireplace

Putting in French doors opened up the room
to the outside and made the
biggest change to the space
how the paint turned out
I originally wanted to
paint the entire room white
but the room gets a lot of light
(south facing room)
so we painted the high beamed
ceilings and all of the trim work white
and painted the walls crab apple by Ralph Lauren
we used a great gloss white paint from
Ralph Lauren called
Design Studio White

My goal is to make this home feel like a
East Coast Martha's vineyard cottage

The curtains and rods are from Pier One
they were the perfect color, cheap and even lined
Just bought painters drop cloths
to make curtains with
for a little change
another project

I had the white denim slip covers made
{ LOVE }
how durable they are
and cheaper than new couches

If you look at pictures of
Victorian rooms
they always had ferns and plants

They add such a wonderful color and romance to the room
help to bring the outside

We also removed the old white berber carpet
and added tile
easier to keep clean
Put in the ceiling fan, It gets hot in the summer
I am still searching for the right chandy
and I am yearning to paint the old hardwood floors white !
I am not sure if a room is ever done.

I am off to work on the lace patio umbrella
it is turning out GREAT
