This room was absolutely one that we had to live in for me to really determine how I should style it -the space is fairly small and has a tiny bit of an off layout, mostly thanks to our gigantic TV, but we got to know the room, how we would live in it and made it into a space that I really love.
When we first saw this house, it was clear to Justin and me that we needed to remove the wall that separated the kitchen from this living room.
We love an open floor plan – being able to keep an eye on the kids and enjoy our guests while we entertain is crucial to me.
We also knew that opening up the spaces would allow for much more natural light to shine into the house and would give us the opportunity to create a really amazing island (you can see our current kitchen Before and After here).
All in all, we removed the wall separating the kitchen and living room, created a large peninsula that seats 4, painted the entire space top to bottom, including ceiling and trim work Wedding Veil by Benjamin Moore and tried to utilize every single nook and cranny of the space.
We also removed the plaster detail on the ceiling and replaced it with new drywall, new recessed lighting and a new statement fixture.
The Before shots are from inspection day, so you’re seeing it just how Justin and I did when we began to re-imagine the space….
Each of our houses has taken on it’s own style vibe and our neutral pieces allow us to change up the less expensive accessories to maximize the look of a room without breaking the bank.
