Our transitional living room is maybe my very favorite space in the whole house. It’s finally finished, and I’m excited to share it with you today!

This transitional living room is simple and happy

Our living room was one of the first spaces that we designed when we built this home. It’s a transitional living room style, with nods to traditional elements, like the dark hardwood floors, a classic black piano, rich brown leather chairs, shelves of hardback books, exposed wood beams on the ceiling, and an subtly oriental style rug. But then we mixed it with modern elements, like the rainbow pattern in the bookshelf, clean white walls, a light gray sectional couch, and an unexpected wicker coffee table.

Honestly, I’m in love with this room.

The final touches are done and it’s time to share the living room!

It took us a few months to hang the gallery wall, but now it’s finally up and the room is complete. We sit in this room every night in front of the fire and it’s just so calm, relaxing, happy, and peaceful.

I’m excited to share some photos of the room today! Sources for everything are at the bottom of this blog post.

    So How do you get your kids to not mess with/ruin your beau coffe table books?

      They actually LOVE looking at the coffee table books, but we’ve talked to them about being super careful and so far it’s been okay!

    Awesomeness! Qucik question concerning your beautiful table. We put our feet up on our current ottoman and over the years have made a mess of it. Do you all do that and if so, looks like it’s holding up well? Also, every spilled anything on it?

    Beautiful! Do the high ceiling and exposed beams continue into an adjoining room?

    Great room, I like the way you’ve arranged everything. I recently started thinking about home security, and I installed an alarm system for myself, and I decided to buy a home safe so that I can put my valuables in it when I go traveling. After the first review – https://homesecuritygearlab.com/best-home-safe-reviews/ . I found many successful options. It remains now to think about the design of the room, as you have, so that you can install it without attracting attention
    Good luck!

    It looks great. After viewing your photos, I even thought about repairing my house. I have long planned to make some changes to the living room as well as the bathroom. I also read about specialty switches https://www.montgomeryelec.com/speciality-switches/ that I also wanted to install in rooms. I’m just afraid I won’t be strong enough to finish all the repairs:)

    In fact, your guest room looks great. I’m even thinking of borrowing a few ideas. Last month, I racked my head how not to ruin the design of the room by installing air conditioning. My service https://mediaonemarketing.com.sg/top-air-conditioning-services-singapore/ perfectly helped me with this question and advised several life hacks how to hide it

    Your house looks very beautiful, I see how you tried. How to choose details? Do you review reviews before you buy something? https://expert.bestazy.com/ it was a great resource for me to review many times, read customer reviews before buying to make sure you’re not mistaken.

    Where did you purchase your shutters? I have been looking into new window treatments, and I love the look of your shutters. ThEy are just such a large investment, I want to make sure I make the purchase from a reputable source.

    Any chance you could provide the measurements for this room? I’m currently designing a home, and trying to fit a piano, fireplace, tv, builtins, sectional and two chairs….just like you have it. It seems both spacious and not overly large. I’d really appreciate knowing what size of room it takes to fit it all. Thanks!
