We've now seen 16 houses here in the Grand Rapids area. There has only been one "that got away," and it feels like we're getting closer to finding a home to raise our kid(s) in. While I'm waiting for said home to come into our possession, I have been virtually laying out plans and shopping for our dream home. In case you missed it, I did an overall post about my dream home, as well as the color palette I plan to carry though out the space to create a cohesive vibe.
Today I'm starting the part in the series where I break down my vision room-by-room. I am starting with what I think is the most important room in the house, the living room. We are TV people, we spend nights unwinding on the sofa and weekends sipping coffee while Ollie plays with toys. I want this room to feel warm and inviting, relaxed but still polished. Sticking to my color palette the base would be white with warm wood tones, the sofa, light neutral with plants, pillows and art to add life and color. My living room wish list, includes tall ceilings, lots of windows and open to the kitchen. Our last house had two living areas, I prefer one big space instead of formal and informal living rooms. I absolutely loved the feel of our old living room, so we will be using that as a jumping off point, getting a new sofa and an updated coffee table.
