Nina’s Before & After Living Room

July 9, 2015

It took a little while for the custom window treatments to be made, but they were well worth the wait:

Aren’t they beautiful? The window treatments completed the room perfectly. Don’t you love that mirror over the fireplace?

I posted here a peek into Nina’s living room when we were working on it. Here was Nina’s living room when we began:


And now after:



We incorporated a few of her own furnishings in our plan such as the sofa, chair and table.

The bookshelves were all custom made to our specifications. They came out gorgeous and added so much to the room!

During the process:

Nina is so happy and that makes me so happy!

Below was our design board:

We worked together online and through emails throughout the entire design. A fun project for both of us. I am grateful to be doing what I love!



  1. Stunning! What I really love is that the TV wasn’t placed over the fireplace. SO much prettier to see a gorgeous mirror 🙂

    I love the colors you’ve used. So fresh and light and beautiful!

    Love it! I’d love spending time in that room any day 😀

  2. Beautiful! I was so excited to see the bookcases filled. I have new ones in my LR and was needing some inspiration to fill them. I will use your example to decorate my own.
    Love your site.

  3. Hi Kelly!
    The curtains are beautiful and like other commenters said, really warm up the room – I love it that they were made to cover two separate windows – clever girl! Those built in bookcases are amazing too (do they cost a fortune to build?)
    Like Pam, I love your site!

    • The rug is from Joss and Lissette. I checked and they are no longer available. That is a great rug!
