A Vintage-Inspired Living Room Makeover

It's about dang time. That is all I have to say about this. This little makeover has taken me seemingly forever but it is done (for at least a few weeks…).
The starting point for my room designs aren’t the typical fabric swatches or pinterest boards. When I design a room, the first thing I envision is how I want that room to feel when you walk into it. When you come into my house, I want you to feel happy. Not just, “Oh- I-am-happy-to-be-away-from-my-kids-for-5-minutes,” happy but the kind of happy where you are like, “Man. There is something special about that place. It's like Disneyland, but thriftier.” I want our house to feel comfortable and interesting and inspiring. So, that is what I started with: happy, comfortable, interesting, and inspiring, and — my favorite feeling in the world —fearless. So, as you are looking at this new room I hope these are the words that come to mind.
