  • Living Room in 1934 Cape Cod, This room had a LOT of wood stained in Colonial Maple. We wanted to keep the feel of the 1930's by keeping the color stain on the wood ceiling and walls true to the original.  I used an  olive taupe wall paint color to  help balance the orange in the wood color. Then  I used varying shades of gold fabrics  to distract the eye from the  orange.    I like designing rooms that look like they have evolved over decades and have old souls.  , Living Rooms Design

  • If at first you don't succeed, pick up the paint can and try again, Ok, so this room has been 5 different colors since we moved in 6 months ago.  I just couldn't seem to get it right:  too bland...then too bright...then too depressing....
You get the idea.  Anyway, I finally settled on something "just right."  It's the same color I used in my great room at the last house I owned.  "Buckskin Pony" by Valspar Signature (Lowe's.)  

Originally the fireplace had a large framed opening for an old-style TV.  None of ours fit, so we framed it up, and patched the sheetrock so that we could hang a tv in front.  The living room is open to the kitchen, seperated by an awesome expanse of open counter.  The kitchen is small, and lacked storage area, so we decided to frame up a wall and enclose the breakfast area to create a very large walk-in pantry.  It's definitely the best thing we did to improve the house so far.

Update 3/26/10:  I've had a few questions about the furniture.  All the pieces in the house come from Ashley., Living Rooms Design

  • Foyer Redo, This was the first project we took on in our 1918 home since we knew it would be so time consuming (and we didn't have any kids yet).  We stripped the woodwork and layers of wallpaper to paint.  However we hadn't learned yet the marvels of skimming the plaster walls so they are still a bit rough!  The paint is Humble Gold Sherwin Williams., Living Rooms Design

  • My "Hollywood / Martini" living room :-), It's taken almost a year but the living room makeover I started last spring is finally done!! I originally planned a more modern funky room -- cobalt blue walls with bright green accents. But as you can see that plan got modified big-time!!We added the wainscoting and the chandelier. The rest of the bones of the room are what we started with. And we re-covered the bench with a zebra print chenille., Living Rooms Design

  • Upon A Midnight Clear, That's what my navy blue reminds me of at night ~ a midnight sky :)  Season's Greetings everyone!  (Yes I decorated a little early :) )  Gilded pinecones seemed to be the running theme for me this year.  I collected them from around my neighborhood and spray-painted them a metallic gold and used them throughout my house.  It was a fun project and the cost was minimal!  Wishing you all the joys and blessings of this most wonderous season :), Living Rooms Design

  • Tara's Foyer, When my husband and I bought our house the original foyer was very contemporary--wall to wall carpeting contemporary staircase and no mouldings.  Since we prefer traditional style I designed this space with the use of solid oak hardwood floors finished in a Merlot stain a new staircase and lots of moulding!  Although it's not a large space It really changed the look of the house.  I appreciate your comments!, Living Rooms Design
