Living Room Reveal *update*

HI!  I know a few months ago I did a small reveal of our Living Room but as always,things are changing!  We’ve added art, matching side tables and a pair of small wing chairs that I reupholstered.  I’m pretty in love with our room.

HERE is how we first saw it #ew :

Gruesome right?



Now, it’s comfortable and welcoming. My husband bought me this beautiful painting for my 30th birthday.  It really makes the room right?





Here are the two chairs that I got from my grandmother, Bambi, who passed away last year.  The chairs make me smile, and every time I see them, I think of her.  They started out with a white boucle fabric and they were tufted but got dirty when they were shipped out East.  I removed the tufts and changed up the fabric.  Love (Bambi).




Here is a close up that I took the other day.  They are perfect, right?  I have some leftover fabric and am hoping to make 2 pillows for these chairs.


Another view of the painting and our cane-top side tables.


And now for some glamour shots of the chairs!  Like I said, the main fabric was Lulu DK Solids Seaglass, and the back is Lauren Liess Filigree Chevron in Grey.  I. Am. Obsessed.


Here is a view of the back.  Aren’t they fun!?  Thanks Lauren for your gorgeous fabrics!  Classics in the making.


So, there you have it.  This is our Living room…at least for now.  You know how it goes–as a designer, I can’t stop changing things.  A room is never done!

    Hey Alicia!!! Absolutely gorgeous!

    Especially love what you did with the chairs — inspired me to take some furniture that I have from my grandmother and have them reupholstered…awesome stuff!

  4. Alicia, I LOVE your chairs. Amazing! And that painting is fantastic, too. We are *still* looking for a big painting for our dining room and the search is so frustrating. Anyway – looks fantastic.
