If I had to choose one room in my home that I never felt really worked, and was more of a collection of all sorts of styles, it would have to be my living room. Don’t get me wrong, a room doesn’t have to be match-y match-y to work, in fact I love mixing different pieces and styles together, but this room felt like it had too many competing styles and too much going on. Not to mention it was in dire need of a paint job. The last time we painted it was 16 years ago when we moved in. Every time I tried to photograph it, I just didn’t love the picture. My eye was drawn all over the place and the navy couch, which I once loved, was now sticking out like a sore thumb with the more neutral pieces.
If you recall, when I did the Bloggers Heart Habitat, Raymour & Flanigan fully funded all of the furniture and needs for the home we redid. So, when they approached me about partnering together on a room redo, I jumped at the chance to work with such an amazing company and finally make this room exactly what I envisioned it to be in my mind! A neutral, tranquil space that was sophisticated, yet comfortable, formal, yet approachable. As I say all the time, I love spaces in my home to be beautiful, but also able to be lived in and on. For this room, I definitely wanted it to have accents of my growing obsession, french country decor! I hoped for cane chairs with thick, pillowy cushions and a tufted sofa that had a soft, romantic shape and arm. I wanted a round coffee table, and end tables that had a bit more of a presence to them! What I found at Raymour and Flanigan was all of these things! Their showroom is filled with choices and an incredible selection and the customer service was top notch. I felt like the gentleman who helped me select the pieces had my best interests in mind and listened carefully to what I was trying to create. A couple of the pieces were special order and he combed the store looking for fabric samples similar to those pieces so I would be certain I was getting exactly what I wanted. The pieces that were in stock were available in three days or less, which was amazing and the special order pieces came in long before anticipated. Delivery, which is seven days a week, was seamless! Overall, it was a wonderful experience!
