Home Tour: Great Room

Finally back on track with our Home Tour Fridays!  Today: the great room!  Like most of our home, the living room is still coming together, and you’ll see what I mean about those huge windows and finally getting the drapes up.  This space is open to the second floor, the kitchen, and the library.  The bottom floor is very open, with the only exception being the dining room.  So here you are: the great room!

When we moved in, it looked like this:

Those two chairs were both reupholstered by Kenny Morgan of Morgan Upholstery.  I have been so pleased with everything he’s done for me, and his pricing is so reasonable!  The one on the left was an antique find, for which I now know I overpaid (won’t do that again).  But the one on the right was a $10 flea market salvage that used to like this:

One of my long (long, long) term projects will be to completely rework this fireplace.  The fact that it is off center is a source of some serious anxiety for me.  If I could have my way, I would have it built out and converted to wood burning:

These are some of my pins on bay window treatments that I find interesting.  I would love to do bamboo shades, or possibly new roman shades, so that might be on on the list as well!

The big pattern isn’t in the cards for right now, and I’m usually not into red, but I really love the updated take on a navy and red color palate!

I am currently chasing a now-toddler (see photo bomb above) so off to play!  Happy weekend everyone!
