Living Room Reveal!

Hi, friends! Today I am thrilled to share with you the reveal of our living room. It's a room we spend time in daily and quite possibly, my favorite room in the house. I love that we can sit with friends or family and talk for hours or relax and watch The West Wing :) We've put a lot of love into this room and it has truly made our house feel like a home!

This room has come a long way over the past four years: we replaced the furniture from college days, painted the coffee brown walls, designed and built the bookcases ourselves, and refinished a few Craigslist finds. I'll share the details of our projects soon, but for now wanted to give you a peek into my favorite room in the house :) Enjoy!

I love old books. And black & white photos. Can't you tell? ;)

  5. Wow! I've never set eyes on a living room as refreshing as yours! The neutral palette is welcoming to the eyes, and it's wonderful how all that white makes the splashes of colors from the bookshelf pop so dramatically. I'm sure a lot of homeowners are dreaming to have the same living room as yours. =)
