A Big Living Room Refresh

Decorating, Fall, Home Decor, Seasonal & Holiday

  1. What a difference the new furniture made! I love how adding the darker leather chairs balances out the darker kitchen cabinets and the other charcoal accents. Everything now just seems to flow from the kitchen to the living room to the dining room. Love it!

      Such a big difference, right? I love how the chairs tie in with our dark kitchen cabinets, and the dark wall in our living room. Everything just flows so much better!

  2. Dawn says:

    The refresh is gorgeous!! Love the furniture you chose….love the wicker chest in front of the sofa. Do you mind sharing where you purchased???
    Your home is stunning Shayna and it always draws me in!!!

    Love your smart choices, and the room looks so cozy and super functional now.
    Wonderful updates Shayna!

    Hi Shayna ~
    I love your new Living Room.
    You do such beautiful work. So happy to see you back in my email again.
    Have a wonderful evening.

    Hi Shayna,
    Welcome back! I have the same issues in my living room but in the center of my one solid wall I have a fireplace. So the tv is to the side of it because I don’t care for a tv on top of a fireplace. My goal is a smaller coffee table to bring the furniture closer together. Don’t you love 2 recliners for evenings? We never sit on our sofa anymore, it for company. LOL

    • Shayna says:

      I feel ya. Seems there is always at least one room that has problems to solve! And agreed on the chairs. We love them so much, the couch doesn’t get nearly as much use! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Excellent choices – wish this store was in our local area in FL. We are replacing our old family room furniture this year and you have inspired me to look at this line.

  7. Rachel says:

    Absolutely stunning! Love your style and how it has all come together so nicely for you! Now sit back, relax and enjoy!

    I’ve followed you for a long time and I think I agree. This looks cohesive. I like how the dining room and entry door with the dark paint tie into this room well. And as you said, join the kitchen with this room too. That wall of windows may erase wall space but it gives you light and views!!! The look is cohesive yet as you said, layer upon layer of textures. Even your other chair looks great as it adds another dimension yet stays in your color scheme. Love it all. (But I decorate in bold colors!! But love looking at spaces. Thanks for sharing!!)

    • Shayna says:

      Thank you so much, Gwen! And you’re exactly right, the dark leather chairs also work exceptionally well with the dark paint and furniture in our dining room, as well as the black door in our entry. It all feels very cohesive now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Linda says:

    Nice choices Shayna! Your rooms look cozy and well thought out to fit together! Enjoy your renewed spaces!

    It looks so good! Where did u get your shelfs on tv wall? And what color is on the wall with the built in wood shelfs in dining ? Thanks!

  11. Lisa Mothersead says:

    I love the contrast of the dark leather furniture and pops of white. I have the same combination in my living room. Very pretty.

  12. Elizabeth says:

    Your living room looks wonderful! I especially love the leather chairs and you have put it all together despite the challenges. Great Job!

  13. […] may remember that we just did a big living room refresh, and it’s amazing how the addition of our new furniture has transformed the feeling of our […]

    I am curious as to where you purchased the pillows in this room. I love this look, mixing the dark chairs with the neutral and whites — nice work!

  15. Lauren says:

    Absolutely beautiful! Do you mind sharing where you got the bookshelves and media stand?

  16. Loving the new living room refresh, the leather club chairs perfect. The lamp is a great choice as well. Totally my Dรฉcor style.

  17. Caitlin says:

    I don’t think you could have made it more inviting! Where is your black and white throw from?

  18. Julie says:

    When we purchased our home only a couple years ago, we needed furniture, and we were on a strict budget. I went to American Warehouse. We put several pieces on layaway and steadily made payments. When I went to make our final payment, all of our furniture was gone. They didn’t have any of the particular pieces that I had picked out left. The store claims if you put furniture on layaway, they can sell it at any time even if you have made all of your payments. They had never mentioned that before. I was shocked and a little devastated. Our plan for the living room revolved around an u unique chair I found there. I had already bought other things for the room that wouldn’t work without the integration of that chair. I talked to corporate. They claimed they would look to find the furniture at other stores , and we neve heard from them again. They were not professional or even apologetic. The furniture is cheap too. I bought a couch from them a year before that. It has only been a couple years, and I don’t have children to rough house on it, yet the upholstery is coming off the wood. It looks terrible. I don’t recommend American Warehouse to anyone.

    • Shayna says:

      I’m so sorry you’ve had this experience with them! How frustrating! I can honestly say that I’ve made several different purchases from them over the years and they’ve always been great to work with and we’ve enjoyed our furniture. What a bummer!
