{Before & After} Modern & Cozy Living Room

A few weeks ago I gave you a small taste of my sweet client {and blogger} Jill's new living room. After working on her e-design last November, all the furniture has been purchased, curtains have been hung, and gallery wall has been put together! Want to see the results?!
Let's start with a blast from the past....
BEFORE:


GAME PLAN: 
AFTER:
 
 
How sweet is that last photo?! Melt my heart.


What we did: In order to lighten up the room {and distract from the dark sectional}, I chose to paint the room a soft gray and dress up the windows with some great printed curtains. Subtle, but with just enough pattern.  Next, we needed to create a separate dining and office area- all in this little space! We did this in the two little nooks of the room and tried to designate the areas into two distinct zones.  Fun throw pillows and some beautiful wedding photos hung together in a gallery wall topped off the living room. 
  ***
I'm so thrilled with how the room turned out! Jill was a joy to work with and she was a master design-executor.  We were lucky enough to have a fabulous photographer in the area to capture Jill's hard work. Thank you to Deanna Di Marzio for photographing the room! 
Deanna is a talented photographer in the Boston area, and does everything from interior/real estate photos to children, families, engagement and weddings. She's so kind and wonderful, so if you're in need of a photographer in Boston, MA give her a shout :)

  14. Hi everyone! Thank you for your kind comments :) Because this was an e-design and my client paid for the design, I don't give away where the items came from. However, I already did mention the paint color in a previous post, so I can share that! It's called Natural Gray by BEHR and it's the same gray I used in my bedroom here in Seattle. Beautiful color!!
