Transform our house, part 2

So, to continue our home transformation story....

After the garage was cleaned out, several garage sales were held, the piano was sold, the fish tank was given away, the office was built in the back of the garage and the media room was in place - we then worked on the living room/dining room.

The living room and dining area are an L shaped space. The dining room is the small part of the L. The living room, which is the large part of the L is also a passage way into a hall leading to the bedroom, bathroom and media room. The fireplace and the main windows are on the opposite part of the long L.

Once the color palette was agreed on, we could work on choosing new rugs and a few new furniture pieces. Fortunately they already had some beautiful chests and chair which were inherited and in great condition. The chairs would be recovered to mix with new furniture being purchased.

After the new furniture arrived and the recovered pieces were done, we went about arranging the rooms. The important thing we did was to establish the room direction. Before everything in the space pointed to a giant TV in the corner of the small L of the room. Now, each area is treated as a separate space and the fireplace gets to once again be the center of the livingroom.

Here's the result... now when you walk in the front door, you are greeted by this beautiful library and reading area.

Where the giant TV use to be, a comfortable leather chair now resides.

The living room now centers around the fireplace.

The dining area has gained some room to move around in and the china cabinet can be the center of attention.

Needless to say, the homeowners are thrilled. All their hard work has paid off beautifully. They love being at home and entertaining their friends. This project was taken 2 years and there are still things they want to do... but they are loving every minute of the process and I am thrilled to have played a role in this story.
