Lauren’s Living Room

Lauren’s Living Room
Wow. Just wow. Laura inherited quite the stunning living room when she and her husband purchased their house. Pros: um… fireplace? Cons: just about everything else.
First step, burning that slap in the face to real mantles everywhere. I mean, C’MON! Then they salvaged the fireplace with a modern stacked-rock facelift, tore out those ‘handy’ built-ins, (where do you suppose that one small door led? Fire escape? Firewood storage room? Rabbit hole?) and updated the lighting, flooring, and feel of the whole room.
┬áMuch better! Check out more on Lauren’s blog Studio Orange. Thanks for sharing Lauren!

    Ha! That old mantel really was hilarious. Love the new rock update though! Thanks for sharing it with us!

    While the after does look good (not being a hater!), I am actually a mid century fan so I prefer the before. lol. Sure, it would need a little sprucing up, but omg those pendant lights and those built ins!!!! Eep!
