Julia's new home is very open and therefore the living and dining areas have to flow together seamlessly. I did this by keeping the color palette consistent and using similar patterns in each space.
We kept the newly purchased leather sofa for it's warm qualities, easy clean-up, and comfort. A tufted ottoman in the living room echos tufted chairs in the dining area- both keep things soft for two sweet girls that will be running around. A plush rug will sit on top of beautiful hardwood floors to keep things soft underfoot while also adding a pop of color!
Of course the wainscoting (in the dining room) will add a level of sophistication while the family's mission statement (which will adorn the wall above) and a beautiful family photo above the fire place mantel will make the space feel homey and warm.
