The HIGHLY Anticipated…Farmhouse Living Room Reveal – Let’s Get Into It:) + LOOK! MOM! I’M ON YOUTUBE!

Welcome again for the large “reveal” day. Additionally, I’d wish to formally rebrand the phrase “reveal” and as a substitute use “my-current-iteration-that-I-love-but also-might-change-because-a-house-is-a-living-breathing-soulful-space-full-of-family-kids-and-dogs-and-might-never-be-truly-done”. Extra importantly, (and severely) I’ve an announcement: Y’all!!! We Are Exhibiting Off This Home On YOUTUBE!! That’s proper – now we have began to supply long-form non-spon movies documenting every room course of and reveal. Now we have years of footage that we’re collating and enhancing to inform the story of this home. I haven’t loved being in entrance of the digital camera this a lot in a very long time. You see, in contrast to Tiktok, I like long-form storytelling the place I can discuss and discuss and discuss, particularly after I will be tremendous myself and clear (it’s my very own home, I’m paying for these movies so I’m in cost!!!). After trying for a very long time, we discovered an important Portland-based video producer, Michael Raines, that acquired my vibe, introduced artistic path and expertise, and made it enjoyable from the primary second (that’s VERY vital to me as an Enneagram 7 like me). He additionally takes hilarious household and pet portraits within the Lloyd Heart Mall (coming to you quickly over Christmas). This one is our first official video and whereas we’re after all studying so much as we go, I actually prefer it:

So earlier than you have a look at this room “reveal” (or later if you’re at work) don’t neglect to observe the video – I had a lot enjoyable and I actually suppose/hope you’ll take pleasure in it. We additionally did a shorter model (actually 1/thirtieth of the size) that can be on the finish of this put up as effectively (and a reel, and tales, and pins and Mal is making TikToks, a Thread, a tweet, YouTube shorts, FB put up, and potential IG lives – social media is tremendous straightforward you guys!!!!). However severely I’m very, very excited so please watch it if you’re in any respect and when you do find yourself liking it go forward and smash that “like” and “subscribe” button 🙂

As a reminder, we’re in the lounge – the large room in the midst of the home that at instances felt virtually too large. In case you are simply catching up, both watch the YouTube video or learn the recap. It was a protracted journey to get right here so I’m excited to indicate you the place we’re at as we speak.

It’s fairly darn inviting, snug, and comfy. All our favourite gamers are right here – blue, inexperienced, wooden, a ton of classic that I’ve collected over time, and a heavy dose of texture and velvet. It’s not precisely the “minimalist shaker” lounge that I had espoused years in the past, however issues change of us 🙂

Sofas | Chandelier | Classic Articulating Sconce | Single Sconce | Throw Blanket

The 2 matching sofas (from Lulu and Georgia) are tremendous snug and deep (however not too deep), an important scale for the room, and bridge that hole between conventional and fashionable. This angle reveals the lighting so effectively – all regionally assembled by Rejuvenation – the ceiling gentle actually helped heart/floor the dialog space (which appears odd because it’s on the ceiling however you get it). Then we mixed a classic articulating sconce over the eating nook with a extra conventional material shade sconce for excellent gentle. On this shot, you’ll be able to see how the lounge interacts with the eating nook and kitchen – all of it works fairly darn effectively!! And people scenic doorways from Sierra Pacific – it’s such a dream (however we hold them closed on sizzling days clearly).

BTW – look how the Mantra wall shade (that slight pale blue) modifications a lot! So typically it appears to be like gentle gray-blue, however right here it appears to be like green-blue (dare I say Robins Egg?). Typically I feel it’s virtually excellent and different instances it feels somewhat too inexperienced. However see beneath! Good!

Numerous useless folks you acknowledge I’m certain (Sunroom reveal coming later). Now we have this oil portrait from 1740 (how have I not named her but??) that I purchased at an vintage mall, the sideboard I purchased at Spherical Prime, my Cherner chairs that I’ll hoard eternally, and a brand new plant that I’m shockingly retaining alive! Shout out to Drake’s 7 Dees on Scholls Ferry for having such a fairly indoor plant choice.

You’ll discover that I did the curtains and the Roman shade on that facet in the identical material – however two totally different types along with the Japanese Boro shades. She is getting feisty in her 40s! (I really like the mixture very a lot – and Decorview does such an extremely unbelievable job).

Drapes | Chair and Ottoman (classic + comparable) | Ball Pillow | Journal Rack (classic) | Ceramic Scultpure (classic) | Stool (classic) | Ceramic Wall Artwork (from Sara) | Summary Artwork

I feel my favourite space of the room is that this random little vignette or the eating nook – it simply feels a lot like me. I purchased that Papa Bear chair on-line from a “classic supplier” for approach cheaper than most originals are (they run about $15k). I purchased it for beneath $3k considering it was a steal after which discovered it all around the web for $1,500. SOOOO… However I nonetheless like this classic supplier so much (I don’t suppose they have been making an attempt to rip-off me) so no less than I used to be supporting them and never a knockoff firm (she tells herself to make herself really feel higher). The artwork on the left by the curtains are two items of small pottery framed by one in every of my former EHD favorites Sara Ligorria-Tramp – a present that brings me a whole lot of happiness each time I have a look at it. I miss you, Sara:) And I discovered a spot for that bizarre Victorian ball and stick journal holder! The MaryAnn Puls piece of artwork is on the suitable and I LOVE it on this room – it marries all the colours.

Couch “Throw” (classic)

Should you’ve been following for some time (thanks) you’ll see so many issues that I’ve collected over time and it was so enjoyable to lastly type them in the home and make it really feel like dwelling. I don’t know which of those items I might purchase once more if I noticed them with recent eyes (I feel all of them) – they’re simply kinda a part of me at this level and I really like them a lot. The blanket on the again of the couch is one other classic Japanese Boro quilt (I like the way it pops off the inexperienced) and that blue velvet chair from Soho Residence is superb.

Velvet Chair | Sqaure Pillow | Drink Desk | Rug | Wooden Aspect Desk (classic) | Black Desk Lamp | Espresso Desk (customized) | Leather-based Wrapped Rock (comparable) | Ruffled Tray | Rust Vase (classic)

Probably the most stunning espresso desk right here is in full view (learn this put up if you wish to see how we had it made). That tray is from Spartan Store (a splurge for certain, however essentially the most attractive ruffle tray on the planet by Dina No). The classic vase is from one in every of my favourite PDX sellers, Store Wilma (‘sup Annie), and what stack of books is full and not using a leather-wrapped rock?

Flooring Lamp | Log Holder (unavailable) | MCM Cupboard (classic) | Tiny Drawer Storage Piece (classic) | Black Vase

The Saturday earlier than the shoot I used to be finalizing each single room after I determined to rearrange all the pieces. I put the electrical piano on the touchdown upstairs, put my primitive blue/grey sideboard the place the piano was, after which this wall was empty. I didn’t need one other floor to type or something too open and busy. So I went on Fb Market and located this mid-century fashionable piece, requested the supplier if he might ship and inside two hours it was in my home. It wasn’t low cost ($600) however I truly actually like it. As you may know, strong-lined Mid-century items are coming again and this teak wooden tone appears to be like soo good in right here (particularly with the island close by). The highest tiny drawer scenario is separate – I simply threw it on there so as to add extra of a structured sculptural form. I gifted myself that Noguchi lamp after wanting it for 10 years. It makes me very completely satisfied.

Throw Blanket

Right here you’ll be able to lastly see how the lounge, kitchen, and eating nook all work collectively (by that door is the household/TV room which can get revealed as soon as the journal is out!). The house works so effectively – I’m extraordinarily happy/relieved. It feels tremendous cozy and related, however having the two-facing sofas makes it really feel separate in a extremely great way that I hadn’t predicted.

Scenic Doorways

Y’all – we introduced within the gentle and opening it as much as the yard is heaven.

I didn’t need one million pillows in right here so I looked for very lengthy bolsters – and y’all there are such a lot of nice ones in the marketplace proper now. These are from Schoolhouse and introduced in some quirk and sample. I had additionally purchased two lengthy fake leather-based ones from Goal that really regarded actually good, too, however these have a lot extra character (and are so much softer).

So how do I really feel about this room? Y’all, I’m not about to take a seat right here on a reveal day and decide aside my very own design. I really like all the pieces in right here, AND on the similar time sure, I’ve some issues that I don’t really feel are working in addition to I believed they might. Is that attainable? To like all the pieces and but know that if tones have been tweaked or depth was added it could be higher? Certain! However that’s for one more day. I really love being in right here and I actually actually actually prefer it. I’m actually happy with what we’ve carried out and the way this appears to be like (I’ll let you know my ideas quickly I promise, however not as we speak). At the moment, nonetheless, we have a good time these earlier than and afters as a result of I really like and am grateful I’m dwelling on this tremendous snug, fairly, and comfy room for some time earlier than I try any modifications.
