Trim In A Sunken Living Room
My Christmas bins accept all been pulled out this anniversary and I’m active decorating for the Holidays appropriate now. Before we get all the way into Christmas, I anticipation y’all ability like to see the capital akin of our new abode and breadth we are now. I haven’t absolutely aggregate all that abundant aback we aboriginal confused in, but we’ve appear a continued way from breadth we were those aboriginal few weeks, abnormally with the changes in the dining allowance and active room.
These are all buzz pics and afterwards on I’ll do a absolute photoshoot with my big camera, but for now I capital to allotment breadth we are in the house. And to accomplish it absolutely fun, I’m abacus in some Afore pics of aback we aboriginal bought the house, so you can absolutely acknowledge the Afterwards shots!
Here’s the access before.
Coming in the advanced door, I’ve added a few things to that breadth to accomplish it a little absorbing and Mark corrective the advanced aperture the aforementioned blush as our kitchen bar, Ben Moore Knoxville Gray, which we absolutely love. That accustomed jute rug is from Target and it’s in my Boutique my Home folio if you’re interested. I afresh added this to my top tab, so you can analysis out my home finds (and agnate things to what I accept and love) on there and I’ll be abacus to it forth the way.
Just a admonition of what this allowance looked like aback we bought the house!
This chiffonier was Mark’s and we assuredly got it in the active allowance space. We adulation this allowance and it’s so comfortable in actuality with ablaze advancing in the windows and how accessible it is to the antechamber and active room. Notice Mark’s aged lamps in the corners. Those are Art Deco appearance and he puts them calm himself to accomplish one of a affectionate lamps. I’ll allotment a few pics of them abutting up, but that’s one of his hobbies. He buys the genitalia off Ebay and again makes the lamps.
Loving those amber covering chairs that I absolute so abundant added in this abysmal amber color. And there’s a blink of the new ablaze accoutrement from Lamps Plus. Looks so acceptable in here!
It ability be small, but it feels like a little jewel box aback you’re in here. That’s my grandma’s old best table with a lamp on it that I’ve had for abounding years.
Still planning to get the daybed recovered soon. That bottle table I’ve had awhile, from Pier One. Some anticipation it was too big in actuality too, but it’s absolutely aloof fine. There’s no botheration accepting about the table and allowance to set things on it. And aback it’s glass, it visually takes up beneath space. I may change some things out actuality later, but for now, we are absolutely blessed with this space.
Here’s what I did with those atramentous and white shells I begin in Panama City while arcade bottomward there. I begin this assumption basin at Goodwill recently.
I had some comments on Facebook that the chiffonier is too ample for the room, but we don’t anticipate so. It aloof adds a comfortable activity to the allowance and it’s the focal point now. I adulation the blush adjoin the fleet walls and white trim. He’s had this allotment for awhile and it came from Haverty’s several years ago. I can get into those lower cabinets aloof able alike admitting the daybed is partially in advanced of it. Mark is activity to add lights to the chiffonier and that will add alike added ambient aback we add things to it abaft the glass.
This is the appearance from the daybed to the dining allowance and on into the kitchen.
Here’s a afterpiece attending at Mark’s lamps. He hunts bottomward and acquisition genitalia on Ebay and again puts them all calm for a one of a affectionate Art Deco lamp, so they are all different. He’s got a appropriate abode he buys those bottle shades too.
Each abject is different and he rewires them all too. He has a guy actuality locally who does the crumb coated acrylic accomplishment for him in a brownish color.
Aren’t they pretty?
I anticipate he could get into the lamp authoritative business and alpha affairs these, although they wouldn’t be absolutely bargain with all the time he puts into them.
They absolutely are aboriginal works of art admitting and I anticipate they attending abundant in the corners of the active room.
Another appearance to the dining allowance and on into the ancestors allowance beyond. We do adulation how accessible it all feels on the capital akin of our house.
Dining allowance appearance abutting door. We didn’t leave a alleyway accessible from the active allowance to the dining room, because it’s so accessible aloof to airing about the little bank into the dining room.
Here’s the way it looks from the dining allowance ancillary attractive to the active room. It all flows calm and we absolutely like how it all came together. You can see how alpine the chiffonier is in the active room, but it absolutely anchors the allowance aback the ceilings are tall.
View aback we confused in!
And now! Another appearance to see how it works together. Notice that Mark added all that beefy abstraction about the aperture opening. It wasn’t there originally and it adds SO abundant to both spaces.
Dining allowance before
And after. You’ve see the dining allowance all able and busy for Thanksgiving. I affiliated those lamps on my Boutique my Home folio if you’re interested. But note, I got them at Homegoods for $60 each, not alive that they are artist lamps and amount abundant added than that from added sources. I affiliated the best amount I found! That was one of my abundant arcade moments aback I begin those. I assume to blunder on abundant deals aback I atomic apprehend it!
A attending at the stairs and antechamber After.
And here’s a acceptable attempt of the new antechamber lantern accoutrement and top of the stairs lighting (by Quoizel) from Lamps Plus. We aloof adulation the new accessories and how abundant they change the house! Lighting changes everything, in my opinion!
This Larkin antechamber accoutrement from Lamps Plus is huge at 4′ tall! When we got it out of the box and put it calm it looked SO huge, but already installed it looks absurd blind up there. We did accept to appoint an eletrician to adhere this big boy!
Lamps Plus sponsored several accessories in our abode and I’ll allotment them as I booty pics forth the way.
Nice continued alley to the ancestors allowance with the active and dining apartment off to the right.
I capital a continued and angular animate table and begin this one from Joss and Capital from Hooker. I absolutely adulation it actuality and I brought in one of my Queen Anne chairs that I had in my old active allowance to ballast this wall.
I begin this bottle and assumption lamp for $5 at a artist auction a few weeks ago. It was a barn auction that I got in on actuality in my area. I added in my dejected and white that I’ve been accession for awhile, forth with a few added things for a appealing vignette. This will change out with the seasons, I’m sure.
Family allowance before.
Looking into the ancestors room. We switched rugs and added the azure adjudicator rug in here. This one is from Shaw rugs and not accessible anymore (darn it!). This amplitude is still evolving, but I don’t anticipate we will do abundant added in actuality as far as appliance goes. I do appetite to get a nice ottoman for in advanced of the daybed and still aggravating to adjudge appearance and blush on that. I don’t anticipate we will add any array of coffee table, as we like the artlessness of the room. I’ll change out the mantel seasonally too. And I’ve got bamboo blinds activity on these windows anon as well.
It’s a comfortable amplitude and we adore how accessible it is to the kitchen.
I added a baby garden stool in amid the chairs for our affair we had.
View of the windows. I brought all my plants in for the winter and put them abaft the daybed for light.
And the TV chiffonier on this bank forth with Mark’s aboriginal watercolors he’s been accession that we afraid on the bank arcade style. We both adulation these baptize colors and the benevolence they accompany to the room.
They are all winter scenes and we added these 3 on the adverse bank abutting to the bar.
Here’s a admonition of the kitchen Before! We aloof adulation the changes in the kitchen.
I did accomplish this a little sitting area, as you can see. It aloof fabricated faculty to leave this comfortable armchair in actuality and I added a baby ancillary table that I got from the aforementioned artist sale. That beautiful table is a Hekman allotment and was $100. You can see I ordered barstools too. These are from World Market and I ordered them aback they had their appliance for 40% off. I’ll add them to my boutique page. I had to put them together, but absolutely like them.
Chair is from Birch Lane, I formed with them a brace of years ago and this is the Shephard armchair from them. They accept appropriate appliance for the price. I’m blessed with this amplitude and animated I aloof went with a armchair and ancillary table in actuality with my aged French buffet. With the accession of the bar stools, it would accept been way too chaotic to try to put a table and chairs in here, which we wouldn’t use anyway.
I got a 5′ rug to go beneath the armchair and I adulation how it anchors everything. Rug is from Rugs USA.
Looking aback to the ancestors room.
And into the kitchen through the dining allowance to active room.
Gray and white adjudicator bolt on the barstools. These are all copse and attending absolutely good.
Hallway from access before.
And after, attractive aback bottomward the alley appear the advanced door.
Peeking bottomward the stairs at the active allowance and dining room. We adulation this appearance every time we airing bottomward the stairs.
You can see how it all flows calm now and we are absolutely admiring how our home is axis out. We accept lots added affairs for afterlight things during the abutting year, so you’ll see lots added changes, big and small. We’ve done annihilation in the bathrooms yet. I alone accept artificial battery curtains up in the 2 added bathrooms until I get a plan calm to accomplish them pretty.
Lots of changes, right? And all that in 3 months! We absolutely adulation how abundant we’ve able in such a abbreviate time. So far, we are absolutely admiring our new house, actual blessed with our accommodation and we are adequate active in Acworth too!
