This living room has been a long time coming, to say the least. I started painting in here shortly before Evie stopped napping late last summer--at which point, progress came to a screeching halt. After months and months of painting a little bit here, a little bit there, and several intervals of giving up, I have finally painted over all the green trim, beams, and built-ins. Actually, I still have a few shelves left on the other side of the room...but here is the progress:
I love the new Aidan Gray bench that recently arrived from our sponsor Hedge Apple - a site filled with stylish furniture, decor, and design ideas. It is so beautiful and also functional for our space. We played with the layout and moved the couches and a couple armchairs a few times and landed on this arrangement, with the couches facing each other and the bench in between, able to serve as either an ottoman or a coffee table with a tray.
All of the photos on the mantel are passed down from family, as is the family tree in the center:
The couches were a wedding gift from my in-laws from a local furniture store when we were first married, and somehow they have actually remained white, nearly 8 years and 2 kids later.
The trim is all painted Benjamin Moore White Dove and the beams and fireplace surround are painted Nightfall.
I can't wait to complete the other half of this space and check this room off my list! It seemed like the project that would never end for a while, but now the finish line is in sight!
