Boho Coastal Living Room Reveal


I am so excited to finally share our living/family room! This room was absolutely one that we had to live in for me to really determine how I should style it -the space is fairly small and has a tiny bit of an off layout, mostly thanks to our gigantic TV, but we got to know the room, how we would live in it and made it into a space that I really love.

When we first saw this house, it was clear to Justin and me that we needed to remove the wall that separated the kitchen from this living room. We love an open floor plan - being able to keep an eye on the kids and enjoy our guests while we entertain is crucial to me. We also knew that opening up the spaces would allow for much more natural light to shine into the house and would give us the opportunity to create a really amazing island (you can see our current kitchen Before and After here).

All in all, we removed the wall separating the kitchen and living room, created a large peninsula that seats 4, painted the entire space top to bottom, including ceiling and trim work Wedding Veil by Benjamin Moore and tried to utilize every single nook and cranny of the space. We also removed the plaster detail on the ceiling and replaced it with new drywall, new recessed lighting and a new statement fixture. The Before shots are from inspection day, so you're seeing it just how Justin and I did when we began to re-imagine the space....

Seeing as we move a lot (that's an understatement!), we've been conscious to invest in large pieces of furniture that are neutral and incredibly well made. Each of our houses has taken on it's own style vibe and our neutral pieces allow us to change up the less expensive accessories to maximize the look of a room without breaking the bank.

It is so important to us that our home style matches our current stage of life, so we need a space that can handle rough and tumble, get together's with friends and serve as our hang out spot for our little family. I set out to design and create a vibe that is clean, fresh, slightly coastal, a little boho and all kinds of comfortable. Leathers, shades of navy and deep cherry wood tones bring a masculine element while the soft velvet pillows and gold statement chandelier play up just a touch of glam.

Our credenza is an IKEA Billy Bookcase hack with a custom, raw edge wood top and actual dock cleats for pulls. All of the art on the walls has sentimental meaning - the large gold framed map is a nautical chart of the area that my Dad has fished my entire life (and a nod to my home state!), the coral pieces are DIY and I hand painted the art piece above the mantle, which is flanked by over sized family photos. I love to mix metals so I didn't hesitate to add the silver candlesticks that are a mix of my grandmother's heirlooms and newer pieces that were gifted to us for our wedding.

  2. Are those lamps on your console table plugged in? If so, I guess you have floor plugs? I'm currently having that problem with wood floors and no plugs. Thanks!
