This is the loving area in our home. The newly installed grey hardwoods really have pulled this whole look together. My biggest upset on our home is this room simply because of the fact that it is such a small loving room for the size of our house. Good thing we have other rooms and a huge bonus room for the kids!
Ripped out the stair raining that was to the right of the stairs...probably a builder upgrade but I wanted cleaner lines and to open up the room more. Had the painters paint and distress the railing with black paint so it draws attention to the clean lines. Still not sure if I will rip up the carpet yet on the stairs and paint the stairs but for now it will stay.
Our new rocker library! I put a faux distressed tin below the chair rail to give it some edge, guitar on the wall for flair, and a fun cowhide rug. Lots of little extras and has turned out to be a really fun room. Going to take off the builder standard double doors at entry and add an old distressed ceiling to floor sliding door...a project on the to do list :)
