Hello Dear Readers!
Well it’s about time!
I have been promising this Great Room Reveal and now it’s finally here.
The furniture arrived a while ago; however, there have been some issues with it.
One of it being that the back cushions on the sofa were made incorrectly.
Also another issue is of the buttons aren’t quite right, so after a visit
from the furniture representative, three of the pieces will be replaced.
They have been very cooperative and understand that things should be perfect.
However, in the meantime just overlook some flaws and enjoy the room.
Can you tell that I chose white for the sofas? Yes, white; however, I chose a very durable fabric.
Crypton. A fabric that can even ward off the Man of Steel!
Warning . . . grab your favorite drink as this post will be heavy in photos!
The position of the sofas in the new house would lend to the back of the sofa being
exposed, so I wanted a very pretty back profile.
I plan to actually have a pretty desk behind one of the sofas
as an area for me to work. No office for me at the new house.
I chose a larger laundry room instead.
When my son walked into the house and saw the furniture for the first time, his reaction was,
“Wow! … there’s a lot of white going on in this room!” I told him that he was
allowed to sit on the sofas!
Why white? … You know I LOVE color; however, at this stage of my life, I wanted
a room that was fresh and bright . . . a neutral look that I can still go crazy with pattern and colors
with the white of the sofas and the blue/gray of the chairs.
I chose another Cryton fabric for the chairs too. A soft blue/gray.
A chair that my hubby actually chose and loves! They swivel and rock! He’s a happy camper.
I plan to have an upholstered ottoman. Long enough that my hubby can put his feet on it!
Or maybe an antique table that I can use as a coffee table. I would have to shorten the legs…
do I hear gasps? I have used antique blanket chests for coffee tables in the past and never worry
about feet or things landing on them as they add to the patina.
However, there is no placing of feet on this Chelsea House Chinoiserie table
and there are lots of coasters readily available!
I really do love how the black really anchors the room and offsets all the white.
Hmmmm…you just never know what will land in the “new room”
I chose these pillows (pillows offered with the sofas).
I saw a chair in this fabric and loved it.
Loved the pattern and colors, but a bit busy for me for an entire chair.
So enjoying it in the pillows.
I chose the gray velvet pillows from Pottery Barn that I had in my stash to
compliment the chinoiserie pillows.
A vintage marble top table sits between the sofa and chair.
A new to me vintage French mustard jar.
Another view looking towards the foyer area.
Looking toward the sunroom:
My pop of color in the corner of the room.
Not sure where this chair that is sooo comfy will land in the new house.
This furniture arrangement will be similar in the new house,
grouped in front of the fireplace; however, the space will be larger.
A look into the Dining Room
I wish I had a better angle of this entire room … especially leaving out the ceiling fan!
But it’s there …. fans in every room of this house! I am not a “fan” ! 🙁
This area really is a bit small…let’s call it cozy….the chairs are about 2 /12 feet
from the kitchen island.
I look forward to setting up this room in the new house.
I am on the lookout for a few more pieces for this room
and being very selective as I have time 🙁
Hope you enjoyed my Great Room Reveal at the Berry Patch House.
Have a most beautiful day everyone!!
AND stay tuned for our next Monday Morning Blooms this coming Monday!
I will also have a great giveaway next week too!
