Creating a beautiful, inviting and functional living room was one of our top priorities when we moved into our transitional style home. Our family and friends are so important to us, and having a place to make memories and serve loved ones is everything. We spend a majority of our time in this space and wouldn’t have it any other way. I feel so proud of how it’s turned out and am excited to share the full, complete tour with you!
I have to start by talking about our white sofa. We LOVE it. Almost a year later, we see how it’s worth every single penny. It doesn’t pill or sag at all and has held up so well against spills and stains because of the Crypton fabric. That means it’s stain, odor and moisture-resistant, as well as non-toxic and recyclable. My Dad has dementia so he’s not the cleanest, but we never have to worry. Everything from soy sauce to coffee to makeup comes right out with just water and Folex. I also appreciate how the variation in texture adds warmth that balances the clean and modern silhouette. I’ve converted at least five friends to buy this sofa because it’s just that amazing! We are so excited to have this sofa with us through the years as we grow our family.
The gallery wall has been such a lovely, personal addition to our home. I love how it’s different from most gallery walls we see, which are in black and white or all from the same photoshoot. Having a mix of our photos in color makes a statement that truly tells the story of our lives. We also left plenty of room up top for a beautiful panoramic from our wedding with all the people we love!
Living in an open-concept home means we need all the storage we can get. You’d never guess this gorgeous bone-inlay cabinet stores our wifi router, wine and champagne for friends, and extra decor. Since there are holes for cables, we were able to loop our surge protector inside to hide the wires. Also, the doors are soft-close just like our kitchen cabinets. It’s perfect for us and our transitional style home!
Johnny spotted this recliner on a trip to Arhaus and I’m so glad he did. It’s plush yet supportive, which is my definition of comfortable. I also really love how it doesn’t look like a typical recliner. We have a lot of lighter colors in the room, which makes the leather stand out and adds beautiful contrast.
Since we have a lot of rectangular and square shapes in our living room, we wanted to create some balance with an oval coffee table. It complements the length of the couch but isn’t too big so there’s a lot of room to move around. We love the clean marble top and pedestal base that feel both modern and timeless. Our actual coffee table is sold out, but this one is very similar!
We didn’t have the opportunity to see this rug in person before it was delivered but we’re so happy with it. It’s incredibly soft and very cool to the touch. The subtle gray-blue lines in the design add some depth without distracting from the rest of our transitional style home in the slightest.
These poufs are great because they add potential extra seating without creating clutter. You can also use them to put your feet up while sitting down! The leather also complements the recliner nicely without matching too much because of the stitching.
Fiddle Leaf Fig
The fiddle leaf fig has been the houseplant of choice for a while now and we love ours. His name is Frank and we got him on September 22, 2018. I’m not proud to say he’s actually our third fiddle leaf fig, but third time’s a charm, right?
You know how much we love our Samsung Frame TV! We needed a TV in our living room but didn’t want it to be the focal point, especially since it was going to be hung over our fireplace. It looks so much like art when you’re not watching anything and I appreciate how you can update it with whatever you want, whenever you want.
I find it’s the finishing touches that really make a room feel personal and welcoming. They add texture and shape to round out the space. Some pieces, like martini tables and blankets, are also important for keeping the space functional. Ultimately, everything in our living room has a purpose, even if it’s just keeping candle smoke from filling the air!
