Before & After: A Library/ Living Room Reveal

Today is our 2nd installment in our new series Before & After!  Today we are talking through the changes made in our Library/ Living Room space. 

When we looked at our home three years ago, this particular room was a large selling point for us.  I loved the view from the front door all the way through the home to the pool and courtyard.  In addition, our favorite feature was the wall of bookshelves!  There is something about books to me that creates such a warm and cozy living space.  Do you agree?

BEFORE & AFTER: A LIBRARY/ LIVING ROOM REVEAL

BEFORE: This was a before picture of this space when we walked through.

This space definitely had great bones so unlike the Kitchen (LINK), it really just needed cosmetic updates. My whole goal in this space was to lighten and brighten it! The first thing that needed to change in this space was the color on the walls. I updated the space with Sherwin Williams Repose Gray (LINK). This is a warm pale gray color.  I love the difference that alone made.  Next, in a huge fist pulling event, I ripped down the heavy shades covering our sliding doors and opened up that view to the pool! Another important difference was we decided not to go with a tv in this room.  Instead, we wanted this space to be a hangout space to read a book or have a drink with friends.
