Living Room E-Design Before and After

You may remember Sarah’s living room from this post. Well after we worked on her pillows she hired me to finish up the room. 
In her “before” Living Room she was living with an ottoman she didn’t love, windows that were screaming for draperies and a lack of accessories or wall art. 
This is the board I created for her. 
And this is the after! 
We reupholstered the ottoman in a beautiful blue velvet. So much better. 
We added some white garden stools under the console table and she framed my favorite Flora and Fauna Calendar
We brought in some pretty Serena and Lily pillows. The draperies are beautiful. They are from Ballard Designs
The back corner became a place for toy storage and she also made some silhouettes of her children. 
I’m so happy with how this room turned out!

    I love it! It's so fresh now and pulled together. I adore the curtains! I think I just found curtains for my client's living room. Thanks for the inspiration.

    That really is amazing!!! I love what a couple well-placed accessories changed the whole look and feel of this room, love it!

  24. SarahJean Thursday, July 14, 2011 at 9:29 pm #

    That looks so great! It's familiar to the last room but all "dressed up" I love it! Where is the blue velvet fabric from? Are there any great places for inexpensive velvet? It looks so rich and pretty!

  25. Ang Thursday, July 14, 2011 at 10:16 pm #

    It looks great! I love all of it, especially the drapes. Love your blog too.

    Looks wonderful! I really like the ottoman and the curtains and the garden stools are a great addition under the console table.
