We’ve been in our home for 4 years now, and for 3 of these years, the entrance room of our home—the formal front room, the very first thing you see from the entrance door—was lovingly referred to as “the soccer room,” which in fact was as a result of it was an enormous empty house the place my husband, Daniel, arrange a big soccer objective in order that he might play soccer at any second! It was very cool for him and really mortifying for me. So final yr we determined it was time to maneuver the soccer to the basement and furnish the room. I’m so glad with the transformation. (Scroll right down to the tip of the publish for the listing of the place I received furnishings, lamps, curtains, and so on.)

Transitional Model Residing Room

My house model is transitional, a mix of conventional and up to date (fashionable). I’m drawn to all issues gentle and brilliant, neutrals, the grounding high quality of heat wooden tones and pure woven parts like jute, wicker, and rattan. I really like the colour blue. And whereas I get pleasure from loads of the fashionable design traits (mid-century clear traces, white sofas, impartial coloration schemes, numerous woven textures), I finally need my decor to really feel timeless. So I weave conventional, classic items (suppose mahogany finish tables, vintage-looking rugs) into that up to date aesthetic as a result of they a.) by no means exit of favor, and b.) add richness and character (in any other case, an all-modern look can really feel slightly chilly and flat).
