Welcome to the formal living room at Foxcroft Estate! I love the transformation of this room and am always amazed at the impact color and pattern can have on a space. Of course the most obvious change we made is ripping up the carpet and revealing the original hardwood from 1948. We also installed ceiling lights and sconces because this room had no light sources except for lamps. Below is a mood board I made detailing the vibe I was going for in the great room area of the home. The two main design components I wanted to include in this room were floral prints and pattern layering. I also wanted to balance out the vintage feel with modern fishes, such as the lighting and key furniture pieces.
Wallpaper & Paint:
We partnered with Bradbury Wallpaper through out the entire home. In this room, we went with a minty green with accents of dark green and mustards. This floral wallpaper called Twining Rose is from their 1920s collection (2D-107-C in Mint). This floral print feels very subtle to me and not too busy, making it the perfect print to layer more patterns onto. The off-white paint is from Farrow and Ball and is called House White.
While there are a few Warren Kimble prints as well as vintage plastic duck wall art, I wanted the Framebridge pieces to take the spotlight. We had photos, ephemera, and even Brandon’s grandfather’s high school varsity sweater custom framed in Framebridge’s Walnut frames. These pieces are so special and help convey the story of the home the second you walk in the door.
The sconces and overhead lights in this room are from Mitzi. I wanted to go with simple, elegant, and timeless pieces and Mitzi delivered! We also have a vintage mother goose lamp with a gingham shade.
The showstopper of this room is hands down the Apt2B Monroe Drive Queen Size Sleeper Sofa in marigold velvet. This sofa is incredibly comfy and I’m obsessed with this pop of cheery mustard. The jute rug is also from Apt2B. The rest of the furniture in the room is vintage. The green bookshelf is from a local shop called The Picker Knows who we partnered with for multiple pieces in the house.
The drapes and gingham pillows are from Heather Taylor Home. The throw blankets are from Under The Canopy. The ottoman is from Many Hands Thrift Store. All the other decor is vintage.
