Do you have a room in your house that is in a constant state of dazed and confused? Alright, alright, alright. And, despite my favorite rug addition and hutch makeover-neither addressed the scale of the room and the two-story wall. I knew it was time for the living room to get professional help.
I love this shot because it is a totally different view of a room. We have an upper level that looks down making it possible to get an entirely different view of a room that is not living up to its potential.
This 2 story wall is adjacent to the family room wall. Both rooms share a common, blank wall from floor to ceiling.
Up close, it looks like a hutch holding pumpkins and garland and the perfect autumn display, right? That’s all smoke and mirrors with the camera lens.
But then as the camera zooms out, the wall gets all the attention. It is massive. This is one of my tricks when I share tiny details. It is often because the room is in a state of disarray.
Can any of you relate to this optical illusion?
In our #brownstoneinthesuburbs home the living room is located on the “main” level. It is an open room that sits below two additional levels.
Sidenote: Yes, that is a bag of dog food in the dining room (kitchen renovation off to the side).
Several years ago we replaced our white, wood spindles with the wrought iron. It was one of our favorite DIY projects. I share several cost-saving tips.
So with an ongoing kitchen renovation, my time and eyes focused on the living room. I stumbled (or maybe a bot directed me) to the online design company, Modsy.
I had heard about Modsy on Carson Kressly’s show and was intrigued. With online promotion, it sounded like a low-risk purchase.
The hardest part of this online design project was taking the floor to ceiling photos.
It took multiple uploads before I received the photo approval notification. Now, I just wait for the team of designers behind the scenes to make recommendations for this 17’x 11′ room with an awkward niche and that two-story blank wall.
I have no idea what to expect.
I know Modsy makes suggestions that can be purchased via their site, but I am so excited to read the recommendations for a room we use to get away from the noise of the television.
