I’m so excited to indicate you our household/TV room as we speak. I adore it so very a lot, as exemplified with my romantic cuddle session with Girl Buttercup. It’s darkish and comfortable and I truthfully don’t suppose I’d change one factor about it. I really like touchdown on that sectional within the nook, two children piling on and watching TV (particularly within the winter). This ended up being way more of a TV room, not likely a household room as the children don’t are likely to play in right here, however dwelling within the PNW within the winter we certain do like to spend time in right here at evening and on the weekends.
In case you are simply popping by (welcome!) head over to the method put up if you wish to see how this room got here collectively (it was a completely totally different coloration once we first moved in). This room is correct off the lounge, separated by a pocket door, and the right room to throw kids in when we’ve pals over whereas we cling in the lounge.
Wall Shade | Sconces | Artwork (classic) | Desk Lamps | Sectional (now not obtainable however that is comparable) | Stable Velvet Pillows | Striped Pillow | Patterned Throw Blanket | Fake Fur Throw Blanket
The sectional is extremely comfy (will get extra comfortable with extra use – they’re all the time on the stiffer aspect originally). Sadly it’s at the moment unavailable. We added a number of velvet pillows to up the comfortable issue and two of my favourite throws – a reasonably wool one and that fake fur blanket I received’t cease speaking about. The lamps had been just about made for this room – the darkish blue linen is ideal, the form of the shade contrasts so nicely with all of the squares, and the gold element simply ties all of it collectively. The sconces gentle the artwork so superbly and are on a dimmer so we will preserve them so low and create fairly the vibe.
The rug is so stunning – it’s wool and has a lot motion in it, with coloration variation, making it forgiving. Don’t overlook so as to add a 1/2″ reminiscence foam carpet pad for lots of plushness. The espresso desk I’ve had for over 10 years (initially from Anthropologie) and the striped pillow was a splurge from Misplaced and Discovered LA.
Let’s speak paint coloration – Stillwater by Sherwin-Williams is on the wall and it’s PERFECT. Now when you have a brightly lit room (pure gentle) it’s best to know that it may be a extremely daring/saturated coloration (virtually like a brilliant teal) however with our lighting and vibe, it goes tremendous moody. I couldn’t be happier with the extent of saturation and coloration in right here (any darker might look black and any lighter could be too daring or gentle).
Artwork (classic) | Framer
I continued the thread of this classic plaid Boro material that we’ve all through the home (in the powder room and lounge) and this time framed it as a chunk of artwork on the wall. Dave, our framer, mounted it expertly preserving the sides and imperfections. We selected to not put glass or plexi on it as a result of it might make the piece onerous to see and would primarily simply replicate the skin that it’s going through. I LOVE it.
In case you missed it, I did an entire weblog put up and reel about the right way to cling a gallery wall on this room. These seascapes make me so completely satisfied and whereas I by no means say this (and certain shouldn’t) I don’t suppose I’m ever going to the touch them.
On the alternative wall, we’ve one final seascape given to me as a present from Julie, our antiques seller/consumer of the kitchen we did final yr for Crate & Barrel. It’s so excellent! The artwork gentle above it actually reveals it off (and contrasts properly with the sconces over the gallery wall – each from Rejuvenation).
We didn’t want a ton of storage in right here, simply sufficient for video games and puzzles actually. However the actual downside that we had was not having a floor for lamps or drinks. For the reason that couch is slammed up in opposition to the far wall and there was hardly any room for a aspect desk on this aspect of it, we wanted a settee desk. Enter this bookcase from Pottery Barn that matches PERFECTLY alongside the again of the couch and is the place my wine or tea sits once I’m watching TV (in addition to these beautiful lamps). It seems absolutely built-in and virtually prefer it was professionally designed!
The couch faces the TV and fireside wall, and in the event you missed my spiel about how that piece of artwork is definitely our Body TV (with an superior Bezel round it) head to this weblog put up. In case you are constructing or reworking I really like this configuration of a TV wall – with a range hearth subsequent to it. We labored with Vermont Castings on this hearth – it’s fuel direct vent hearth. It warms up the room shortly so we use it totally on the chilly nights and that ambiance, clearly, is sort of the temper enhance throughout what we name “the lengthy nice darkish” up right here. Whereas I actually wished to remain off the grid with pure fuel the place potential, the electrical fireplaces that had been obtainable on the time had been aesthetically not one thing we might put in a 100-year-old farmhouse (they’ve since gotten higher, btw, nevertheless it’s nonetheless tough to make them work in all environments). It’s positively a luxurious and maybe not one thing you want in all decrease/hotter states, however up right here it takes a dreary/miserable evening and turns it into an occasion to look ahead to.
That chandelier is from Rejuvenation and I’m so sorry I didn’t shoot it with the sunshine on! We simply did a reel about it, displaying the way it lights the ceiling in such a reasonably and mushy/glowy manner. You’ll be able to configure that fixture in order that it lights down or up however we didn’t wish to search for right into a bulb (and we’ve recessed lights ought to we’d like extra) so we confronted them up and love the way it provides the ceiling an ambient glow.
Lastly, you’ll see the French doorways to the patio, which I don’t actually suppose that we wanted nevertheless it creates good exterior symmetry with the sunroom on the alternative aspect. What we didn’t predict (nicely I did however no person would consider me) is that the afternoon summer season gentle (that stays gentle til 10 pm) blasts via right here and makes it not possible to observe TV (or maybe I’m delicate to that) so we put shades on the doorways (from Twopages which might be so beautiful) and we ended up putting in a swing door into the hallway that can also be flooded with gentle. So you may really shut all of it out, like vampires, even on the sunniest days ????
The element of the rug actually reveals off the feel of it. I’m getting inspiration from Enkay for our subsequent rug launch. I do know that this type of high quality, weave, and texture is often fairly costly (hand-dyed yarn, artisanal weaving) however my goodness it’s so fairly. Now for some good old style earlier than and afters of this room. However wait, let’s return in time to remind you what it regarded like once we purchased the home:
She has come a loooooong manner. Right here you go!
I can’t BELIEVE it was ever that gentle/boring and mistaken. This room all the time wished to be darkish.
Right here (above) you will get a way extra of the Ponder paint coloration, which I actually did like for a lighter room however regarded useless in right here).
I hope you loved this room course of as a lot as I get pleasure from this room. If I might have you ever throughout to expertise this stage of vibe and comfortable I’d. Due to all concerned and don’t overlook to observe the Youtube video of the entire course of with actually fairly reveals.
