Jessie’s Living Room

by Shelly

Recently, I started working on an e-decorating project for a client in Boston.  She and her family live in a beautiful late 1800s Victorian home. They have been painstakingly bringing the old girl back to her old glory one project at a time. You can read about their home here.

Since I have a soft spot in my heart for older homes, I was thrilled to hear from Jessie that she would like some decorating help, starting with their living/family room.  So I just wanted to share what we’ve come up with for her room.  Let me tell ya..it wasn’t easy! The room is definitely not a modern room…lots of doors, weird walls and not a solid wall to boot. But its cozy and unique and I think its going to look WONDERFUL! Here is the fabric that started the whole look…

Well hopefully once Jessie’s room is complete..or near completion, she will share images! I can’t wait! Here is what we came up with:
I still need to fine tune some things like art and more lighting, but its got a great feel!  Happy Friday to you!

I absolutely LOVE both fabrics. Especially the accent chair one.

The chevron fabric is so fun! Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday Megan!

And Jenn..no you didn't! Do you want to use it?? I can see a few different places it would look awesome in your place.

This whole process has been so fun. I can't wait until the room comes together so I can return the favor of a post on my blog.
