The In-Laws Living Room

Wow, two posts in one day! I have a babysitter, can you tell? I've been dying to share some of the projects that have kept me busy these past, ooooooh 10 months.

This is my in-laws open living room facing the LI Sound. They were craving a serene, traditional space with a hint of coastal chic without the kitch. I specifically remember my mother-in-law saying "please, no lighthouses".

It's a mix of repurposed furniture from their previous home (the gray sofa used to be the ever-so-popular seafoam green from the 80's and the white armchairs matched). The walls are the perfect pale blue/gray named Oystershell from Benjamin Moore. The three sets of french doors open outward to let in the coastal breezes. It's quite lovely in the summer!

The velvet covered daybed and leather wingback chairs are from Baker. The octagonal ottoman is from Hickory Chair covered in a pale blue Beacon Hill fabric. It's a long narrow space, so the daybed creates a nice bridge between the two seating arrangements (it's also a great place to catch a nap)

The fireplace surround is a gray/blue slate.

I'm obsessed with these pretty (1930's Italian) wall lights courtesy of 1st Dibs.

This is a view from the dining room. The main foyer is to the right and the living room is to the left.

Still more to come!
