BEFORE + AFTER – A Bright & Happy Living Room

March 13, 2019

I couldn’t be more excited to finally share the before and after photos of an interior design project we completed last year in Sudbury, MA. As you may remember, we also designed their master bedroom a few years back and I’m thrilled that we’ve had the opportunity to continue to work together on their beautiful home.

A couple goals for the living room and kitchen area:

.01 Since this family spends the majority of their time in the living room and kitchen, they wanted this to be a place where their family could relax after a long day but also feel pulled together to match their design style(s).

.02 Make the space feel less builder-grade. My clients expressed that they wanted the living room to feel more personal, more like them and a place they can easily clean up after the day is complete.

BEFORE
A couple challenges we faced:

.01 This is a long and narrow room so there really wasn’t another way to set up the room with the amount of seating (comfortable and accent) needed. We kept the Arhaus Sectional and added a middle piece to make it longer and placed a large area rug underneath to ground the sectional.

.02 Another challenge we faced was that you could see all the wires from the tv and while they wanted to mount it, there were issues with the speakers that were already built into that wall that would make it off center. I found a large customizable bookcase from Room & Board that was perfect for this wall – it gave it a custom look, hid the wires and speakers and made that wall more serve more of a purpose.

Take a peek below at the photos and I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments. As a thank you for your ongoing support, I’ve included most of the sources at the bottom of this post (some pieces were no longer available).

Absolutely gorgeous! The furniture you selected is larger and provides more storage but makes the room feel BIGGER than ever because it is all properly scaled! It’s crazy how underscaled pieces can really do a room injustice. You nailed it girl, every inch is beautiful!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! That means so much to me, especially coming from you. xoxo
