Planning out the Living Room

A few months ago, Justin and I attended a interior design presentation held by our Realtors, Christina and Greg. The presentation was titled, "Three Simple Steps to Uncovering Your Unique Design Style:  What to do before embarking on your next design project." (If that title isn't us, I don't know what is!). Holly O'Brian, an interior designer, led the presentation. She was able to give us some awesome advice on where to find inspiration both online and in books, as well as find our design style.  Justin and I pretty much have the same style, classic and traditional, but I always try to add a bit of a modern flair.  After the presentation, I showed Holly our floor plan and she offered to do a complimentary CAD image of what our living room could look like. How cool is that?

Below is the drawing of the our living room that I gave Holly. Lovely, isn't it?

And here is the image she came back with:

She even made some suggestions on some furniture accessories.  Below are some storage ottomans from Crate & Barrel.

And here is an ottoman from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. It looks totally chic!
She gave us some really great ideas for our living room so you'll just have to stay tuned to see how our living turns out!
