Lilac and Blue Living Room Makeover


Recently, I told you about Lisa's move with her 
family to a smaller home near the ocean

We had to downsize quite a bit...
and lighten up for a fresh, beach home vibe.
 Liana wraps custom sewn pillows like 
beautiful presents that
Lisa was thrilled to open.
They are renting this home so we worked 
with the existing butter yellow walls.
As well as, the nine foot sofa from 
their previous home.
I thought the scale might be too big, but the 
family loves the comfort and it was well made.
We slip covered it and added fresh linen pillows...
 The lilac rug, from their previous master bedroom,
 was layered over a custom cut seagrass rug. 
We used their existing coffee table with some
Pottery Barn accessories like the hurricane and tray.
 Restoration Hardware swivel club chairs were ordered
and custom lumbar pillows added.
The gold lamp was updated with a new, black drum shade.
 This lavender geode looks pretty with the 
new mercury glass lamps.
 We dressed up the little lumbar pillows that came 
with the dining chairs with some trim 
(great idea, Liana).
These occasional chairs were recovered...
with lavender linen in the entry and
 in the living room.

It was important to use, as much as possible, the furniture from
their previous "Tuscan-styled" home... in new ways.

 The bone inlay box is from Pottery Barn. 
 The tray was tarnished black.
 I told Lisa about polishing brass with
Bar Keeper's Friend.

 The club chairs are covered 
in Perennials "Fog."  
 Lisa bought some floor cushions out of the same material for
lounging on the floor while watching television.
It's a really soft and durable...especially for indoor/outdoor fabric.
The family is settled into their 
new, light and bright beach home.
 Thanks for visiting.
