Family Room Transformation

It took us around a year to find our house.  And by all means, the house we finally decided on was not perfect.  However, it had the foundation we were looking for with some charm.

I was recently asked, “How could you see past the green shag carpet and the yellow spongepaint?”  And my reaction was, “We just had a vision and executed it.”  That’s really all you need… a decent eye, or someone to help you.  We hired a Sherwin Williams designer to help us pick out paint colors, which was useful when we were totally overwhelmed with paint and miss-matched carpet.  We decided on SW Bungalow Beige for the walls and SW Pure White for the mantel and trim.

The accessories were a combination of items we had on hand (couch & coffee table), HomeGoods (pillows and curtains), center coffee table (a vintage window made by my Father – I will blog about that sometime), and the vintage media unit (see previous post). And finally, we had new carpet installed from Lowe’s.  See below for the transformation!
