Main Floor Makeover

The quest to complete our home is still in full force. A few months ago, we were able to transform our dark and drab family room, dining room and kitchen into a calming, sophisticated space. We still have a few things to do (drapes being one of them), but we are so happy with the way it turned out. As always, I have to give a shout out to my friend Ashley from Ashley Winn Design for her help and expertise. Check out our before and after photos. As soon as we finish up details, I will be sure to post some updated pictures!

BEFORE: We bought this oversized brown couch when we first moved into the house. It is SO comfortable, but I felt like it was over powering the room. We have moved it to the theater room where I think it will be the perfect "cuddle up and watch a movie" piece. 

AFTER: We had our couch custom made (for an amazing price) by Rocky Mountain Upholstery. We wanted something really deep so Brian could still lounge on it, but we also wanted it to have clean lines. We added 2 club chairs in a tan linen that face into the room so it felt like a true conversation space. The area rug was a killer deal! Originally, it was $1200 but I found it online for 75% off! The coffee table also adds function to the room since often times people are eating while watching a game. 

BEFORE: Nothing was hung on the walls. It felt so BARE and BORING!

AFTER: Now, we have great lighting with the additional lamps, and 4 big frames to display anything we want!

BEFORE: Again, I felt like our dining room table, chairs and area rug were too dark next to the dark wood in the kitchen. 

AFTER: We decided to go with a carpet tile so spills can easily be cleaned. The chairs are all uniform which now gives it a cleaner look. 

BEFORE: One last view of the entire space... not much to look at!

AFTER: Aaaaahhhhhhh! So much more relaxing!
