|Before & After| English Village Project: Round 2 - Living Room & Sun Room!

It's been a little while for this poor, neglected blog. I'm hoping to change that and post here more regularly - I just need about 12 more hours in the day! 

I started working on this beautiful 1920's tudor in English Village almost a year ago. We started with the kitchen and two bathrooms. And after we completed those in December,  the client asked me to continue with her formal living room, sun room & master bedroom. 

The living room & sunroom both have beautiful windows and a lot of natural light, but the dark wood floors and the overcrowding from too many pieces of furniture made it feel a little heavy and dark. Our goal was to make it feel lighter, a little more casual and a little more modern.

And we can't forget the sunroom!

Much improved, don't you think? I really love the way these spaces came together. We minimized the amount of furniture so the room could breath, and we softened the vibe by bringing in layered rugs, lots of vintage textiles, lighter wood and beautiful leather accents. 

Next up.....the master bedroom transformation!
