This space has been a labor of love!
Built in the 40s, our house was originally constructed with three bedrooms, and this room was one of them. Then, in the 80s, the previous owner added the second story, which included two more bedrooms. A few years after we moved in, we opened up the wall that leads into the kitchen, and decided to make this room our TV den. Although we lost a bedroom, the renovation really improved the natural lighting. We thought about making this room into a second dining area, but I didn’t like the overall feel, and since we didn’t have a place for our TV in the main living space, we decided a TV den would make the most sense. When looking at pieces for our project, I knew I wanted our new TV room to be comfy, but stylish! I thought about buying a sectional, but I knew that it would close off the room. When I found the Xander sofa by Jonathan Louis, I quickly noticed it was really deep and comfortable, but also stylish and quirky. I also loved the bolster style back pillows. When choosing the fabric, I knew I wanted to divert from my normal white sofa, and choose something that would compliment the new paint color (pink shadow by Sherwin Williams). Jonathan Louis has many options to choose from, but we went with a deep blue color, called “modern ink.” We also picked these Mongolian pink fur pillows, filled with pluma plush inserts, to compliment the wall color.
For the art, I was sent a piece from the owners of Mister Sister, who I met on my trip to Portland, and we instantly connected! Check them out for fun, eclectic vintage pieces.
I wanted the art flanked by sconces, and found these great pieces on Amazon. I wanted the sconces to be traditional, yet funky, and these did the trick! Here is the link to those sconces, and cord covers.
The room already boasted built-in shelves that housed our books, records, and record player. The rug is a 150-year-old Turkish kilim, and is one of my first rug purchases.
From an extra bedroom to comfy TV den, this space really transformed into a room we love to spend time in. Thanks to the beautiful Jonathan Louis sofa and ottoman, this room really turned into our comfy, eclectic space I had envisioned from the start.
