What is currently in the living room? Nothing much. As I mentioned previously, I read somewhere that it is best to focus on one room at a time rather than stressing about furnishing an entire house at once. As of this moment (thanks to my husband’s recent electrical work), the dining room, foyer, master bedroom, master bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room are now basically complete. What’s left? Work is still needed in the living room, study, guest rooms, guest bathroom, half bathroom, upstairs living room, and the pantry (just waiting for the light fixture).
A while back, my mom hired an interior designer to come to her house and arrange the furniture and items already on site to best suit the current spaces. While working, the designer said that my mom didn’t really have a specific style, she just likes what she likes. That is definitely the case of this house. There is no specific style throughout but so far, I think it flows pretty well. Because I have inherited a lot of the decor and most of the furniture from my aunts, grandmothers, and mother, I am working with a mix of French country, rustic, Asian, and traditional styles. I also really like the look of antiques and some mid-century modern chairs.
Currently the living room is basically empty. There is a pretty fireplace with a mantle which currently has a painting my grandmother bought for me similar in style to this painting. There is a clock similar to this clock. Not sure if it will stay, but this rug is currently in the room. Here is some of the design inspiration I have found perusing Pinterest.
