I’m so excited to be sharing our living room renovation plans!!
It feels so good to be doing a new renovation project. Specifically, our living room! Time to share our living room design plan!
The living room has been a looooong time coming. I threw out the rug one day and have been hating the living room ever since. Oops!
It’s beige and gross and builder-grade. I don’t know who makes the paint decisions for builders but they should be fired.
Here’s a before shot:
My least favorite part of the room (besides the beige paint) is the fireplace.
I’ve been on a focal point and fireplace udpating crusade the past few weeks. I think, after considering 193875392387 options, I finally came up with what I want. And, it’s not even one of the options I shared last week (*face palm*).
In case you missed it ….
Jewel tile + Shiplap + Dusk doors
Jewel tile + white cement + cove doors
Well, after considering all the options I listed, I decided to completely change my mind.
Instead of using the either of the wood door options and risk having too many wood tones in the room, I decided to use the same green we painted the dining room for the doors!!
It’s called “North Woods” by Behr. It’s dark and moody and I love it! Plus, since we have an open floor plan, it makes the giant space feel more cohesive.
So, after changing the doors but keeping the jewel tile + shiplap, here’s what it looks like!
I just love how it looks!!!
That’s not the exact couch we picked but everything else is part of the design plan.
I also switched out the counter tops from a black color to wood. I like the contrast and I think we’re going to stick with them!
Speaking of which, let’s take a closer look at the design plan!
First, here’s the floor plan!
You enter the room from the entry/office on the left hand side.
From there, it’s open to the living room (shown) and the kitchen (the big space at the bottom).
The dining room is off the kitchen (not shown).
Basically, the whole area is open!
Now, the living room design plan!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE.
It’s modern and clean, definitely my style.
I’m worried it’s a little too black and white. I did add some color in with the cabinets and pillows. Plus, the shelves will be styled (can’t wait for that).
We’ll see how it starts to look once we begin the fireplace reno. I may have to switch out the rug or chairs for something with a little more color.
I don’t know. I’m kinda obsessed with how it turned out!
What do you think??

- Fireplace Stencil: Jewel Tile Stencil
I’m really excited to get started on the project.
But, I also had a realization that I’m giving birth in 7 weeks and have nowhere for the new baby to go! Oops! #fourthkidproblems
So, this project may be on hold for a bit while we work on Evie’s big girl room! We have to transition her out of the crib and her current room into a big girl bed and a new room so that we can do something to her current room for the new baby.
