Design Kickoff: The Living Room

Today is the day, the official kickoff of the first One Room, One Month endeavor: our living room!

(My 17-year-old self would die if she knew that, a decade later, I had an Angie's List subscription and was writing this boring crap. But this makes me happy. Living rooms! Rug sales! Deals on upholstery fabric! Fuck yeah!)

One great thing about this room, and about this project overall, is that we're starting from scratch. We sold most of our furniture prior to moving and are not married to anything, so hello blank slate! Any designer knows that blank slates are as elusive and fantastical as unicorns.

Yet, while we don't have specific design parameters, the space itself is tricky. We're facing four distinct challenges.

1. It doubles as an entryway—you walk right into it from the front door.
2. There's something major on each wall—front door & fireplace, triplet windows, a large doorway into the dining room, and french doors into the study.
3. We spend a ton of time in this room, both relaxing as a family and hosting friends, so we need flexible seating that facilitates conversation.
4. This room, like our whole house, is petite—even a full-size couch dwarfs it. Yikes.

With the help of Pinterest, Tanya and I have aligned to design inspiration. Think:

White. Copper. Greenery. Mid-tone wood variances. Tonal texture. Subtle details. Edison bulbs. Conversational seating. Cozy-yet-bright. Everything we love about that image above (and this image below).

We've made an ever-growing spreadsheet of 17 specific tasks to be done—from painting to building a coffee table to sourcing lighting to bookshelf design. It's tedious to list each one (and frankly, who gives a shit) but I'm hoping to write about them as we go in order to track our progress (and pat ourselves on the back—because that's a lot of what blogging is, let's be honest).

First project: ceiling fan makeover. Here we go.

  4. Great You are happy

    I have got one myself since like 10 decades. I enjoy it as well, not modded as yours however.

    Currently it does not operate, it accelerates if heat. Brought to a neigbour of mine and he'll find a deeper look at it.

    It seems like a few have had trouble with the automatic decompression valve, so does yours have that?

    Enjoy a superb day!
