Living Room Makeover

See all the details on our Living Room Makeover. When I was asked to partner with The RoomPlace on a spring living room makeover, I was thrilled. Living Room Makeover with The RoomPlace Our living room was filled with our old home’s hand-me-downs, and they never fit our current space.  The furniture looked forced in the room, and the sofa cushions were ripped (which meant strategic placement of pillows and throws). While planning the makeover, I knew the room needed a couple of accent chairs and sofas.  I also wanted a bolder color for the space.  I fell in love with a floral shop display I saw when I was in NYC last month – a navy wall with fun pops of color.

Here is a photo of the living room before the makeover: And here’s the after: We have a “man cave” where we watch most of our tv, so our living room is mainly for entertaining (we purchased leather sofas in the man cave from The RoomPlace several years ago and have been so pleased with their quality). I wanted the newly designed living room to be a space that was elegant yet still comfortable.  Also, we often host larger groups in our home and need plenty of seating.

Roxbury Sofas

Two sofas would allow for maximum seating (verses the sofa and loveseat from before the makeover).  I chose the Roxbury Sofas in Gray.  I love the modern clean lines of the sofas, and I am always a fan of anything tufted. The sofas are a soft gray chenille fabric and are sturdy but comfortable. Keeping with the symmetrical look of the matching sofas, I wanted two chairs to place on either side of the fireplace.

Isabella Accent Chairs

I selected the Isabella Accent Chairs.  The chairs are elegant and inviting and work well with the sofas. The chairs have a more traditional look which contrasts nicely with the modern sofas.  The nailhead trim is a gorgeous addition to the already pretty chairs – especially the oversized nailhead trim on the sides of the chairs. Before the new furniture from The RoomPlace arrived, I added DIY paneled walls to either side of the fireplace and painted the walls in a deep navy (and I will be sharing the full tutorial for the paneling soon). My furniture arrived quickly, and I was incredibly impressed with the delivery and service. Set up was fast and the furniture was placed exactly where I wanted it. I love the new spring makeover for our living room, and in less than a week our family room was transformed into a completely new space. The furniture fits the room and invites guests in. Pops of color were added through pillows and accent pieces. The furniture gives us the maximum seating in our space without being overpowering. Our family is loving the new space and the comfortable furniture.

      1. This room is so beautiful! You mentioned in a previous post that you purchased the coffee table from Wayfair. I searched the sight and wondered ifyou remember if it was the Allium Way Hattie table or the August Grove Nettie table.? These were the two that seemed the closest to yours. It looks beautiful in your home!

        1. Thank you Melanie! It’s been so long, that I don’t know for sure. However, looking at the finish on the table (since the dimensions are the same), I think mine is the August Grove version. I hope this helps!

  1. I love the reveal!!! It looks so sophisticated! Paint! New couches! Chairs! I took the dive Saturday and got primer and paint for my bedroom accent wall. My home is tiny so one sees this wall from the moment one walks in the front door. I actually have chosen a dark blue. I only have tinted primer but I know I’ll like it. I do like the boldness of your room yet it’s tasteful and beautiful!! Congratulations

  2. Hi Sarah,
    I just discovered your blog and just wanted to say, i love your style!! What an amazing, bold transformation! I love the navy walls with the moulding. Great job and thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I love your blog and your taste! Could you tell me where you found the black planter with the gold ball feet? Thanks!

  4. I love everything about this room, especially the floral print hangoing over the fireplace. Where did you get it?

  5. Hi there! Our living room is set up very very similar and I’m looking to remodel it.. one thing we get stuck on is the TV. Where did you end up putting your TV? Or did you knix it for this room?
