esterday I attempted phase one of organizing and styling our living room. I’ll admit the current organizational state of our living room is the antithesis of the picture above. Right now it looks more like a space designed by Red Foxx on Sanford and Son. Anyone old enough to remember that show?! If not, here’s a sample.
When I’ve completed phase two, I’ll have to post a before and after. That is if I build up enough courage to show you the before shots, because they’re pretty scary. Since our rental home is a very temporary space for us, I’ve been a little more laid back about feathering the nest.
I know this is an oldie from Domino, and I’ve published it before, but I just never tire of the aesthetic of this room.
Love all of these clean looks. But do they look like they could happily house four kiddos plus a cuddly cat and chummy canine? Hmmm, maybe if we toss in a few G.I. Joes, a dozen Polly Pockets scattered across the floor, puppy toys and some spilled juice on the carpet. I’m sure I can count on our brood to help with that part of the styling : )
This next room is from the home of interior designer Sharon Mimran. She nailed the perfect mixture of glamour and sass. Herringbone floors, subtle stripes and zebra?!? Delish. This space is actually a former entry which Sharon turned into her living room. Heritage restrictions prevented her from sealing off the door, so she just used it as a place to park some of her art.
It’s stormy and raining today so I’m skipping my daily trip to the barn and moving ahead with my Operation Organize home project. Hope to share pics with you soon!
