Monday Musings: Coastal Living

Today we thought we’d give you a little sneak peak into what the Beaufort living room is going to look like. We found this great photo and used it as somewhat of an inspiration for the feel of the living room. 
This isn’t everything, of course, but here are a few items we’ve been working on that we think are going to be absolutely essential in the room!
This Currey & Company driftwood chandelier is HUGE, and is going to be that perfect, chic yet down-to-earth element that the room needs.

This gorgeous painting by the majorly talented Kerry Steele will adorn the mantle. We love how it’s contemporary yet coastal.

 

We adore this custom sofa’s legs. We got the inspiration from one one of Phoebe Howard’s rooms! 
Ryan Studio Fretwork pillow
These fun pillows from Ryan Studio — in other colors — are going on the sofa.
This glamorous Regina Andrew shell…

 

And these whimsical, fun Studio A candlesticks…
Are going to look great on this Currey & Company coffee table!
Two small, upholstered club chairs…
In this fabric…

 

With this Regina Andrew Le Chic table in between will provide comfy, cozy seating — and a place for that all-important cocktail!
We’re getting so excited to see pieces start rolling in. We’re hoping that the house progress is coming just as well when we go check it out next weekend.
We hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

New Windows and Furniture, Finally!

We wish we had some super-exciting Beaufort news to share — you know, like moving in furniture. But, of course, it has only been two months… We are pretty thrilled that some of the old, mismatched windows have been replaced with larger, matching ones, like this big one in Mom and Dad’s bathroom.
 So, no, these might not have been the dream windows we would have chosen, but replacing every window in the house wasn’t quite in the budget. At any rate, the new kitchen windows look so much better than the old ones did. The kitchen looks lighter and brighter already!
Just a little reminder of the old window on this wall!
The trimwork on the outside looks great too!
 In other groundbreaking news, the electrician found another foot in the new half bath downstairs! Higher ceilings are always good news, right?
Combine that with rolls and rolls and rolls of insulation and more feet of wiring and pipes than we could have imagined and a new heating and air system, and we’ve come a long way, baby!

So let’s get down to some good stuff:

 We’ve started gathering furniture, lighting, accessories etc. This Currey & Company Grotto Chandelier was the starting point for the entrance foyer. It just arrived, and it definitely makes a statement!
 The chandelier will be hanging over this great dining table from Halo Styles.
A pair of this Rutledge occasional chair (Fabric TBD!) from Phillips Scott is also going on one side of the entrance…
With a gorgeous, handmade stool from Hampton Row (in another color, of course) in between.
This Regina Andrew Le Chic floor lamp will grace the corner of the room. 
And these Gascoigne chairs from Phillips Scott, the outside and back covered in raffia with another great, yet to be found fabric on the seat are going on the other side of the room.

Progress! It’s going to be so fun to see it all come together in a few months!
Thanks for stopping by today!
