One of my favorite rooms in our new home is the formal living room. It’s huge! Not to mention it has ginormous windows with amazing natural light, and all of the charm you would expect in a 100 year old home!
The previous owners left this amazing and beautiful vintage rug! I get so many people asking where I got it! It really is a beauty, and we didn’t even have to move it in!!
The only things we did in this room, was paint the walls and ceilings, paint the mantle, and replace the ceiling light fixtures. The ceiling light fixtures were not original, and I wanted something somewhat stately, but not too fancy. I found these simple, classy, brass semi-flush light fixtures at Globe Lighting and I love that they just blend in!
I painted the ceilings “Snowdrift” from Rodda, and the walls are a Sherwin Williams color, “Soft Chamois”. The walls were originally green and the ceiling was pink. Painting the walls and ceiling completely lighted this space!
My beloved Moss Studio furniture from the shop moved right in! I am obsessed with how comfortable and well made the furniture is! I will admit, the dog is not allowed in this room :) He manages to drool everywhere and mama puts her foot down with drool and linen slipcovers :)
Below is the room before we painted it. It’s such a beautiful room, I honestly don’t know that it could look bad!! I mean, look at the picture railing and base molding!! B E F O R E v v
Thank you so much for following along as we make this little farm ours, one project at a time!
