Hearth Room Makeover Reveal!

I’m so happy to say that after my daughter’s bedroom makeover, the second room in our new home is now 100% complete. C’mon… let’s take a tour of my Hearth Room… hearth room makeoverThis is my absolute favorite room in the house. It sits just off the kitchen and breakfast room, has a lovely vaulted ceiling, lots of windows, plus has a door that leads to our upper patio.  My favorite piece in the room is our linen couch with nail head trim. I first found it at a local store, but then after some research scored it for much less online. We decided to leave the couch at an angle when you enter so the whole room seems more inviting.

The leather chairs are from World Market. Perfect size for snuggling with a good book.

And I mixed a bunch of gold, silver, and oil rubbed bronze in this room, just like our great room. I’m not a rule follower. And I don’t care. makeover hearth roomThe rug I scored from Target. Love the grayish blue color that I have running throughout my main floor including my breakfast room and kitchen. hearth room rug from targetThe fireplace is fake. I would have loved to put a real fireplace in when we built the house, but we were trying to keep our costs down. And while I’m not loving the TV sticking out in the middle of the room, it truly is functional. That’s life.  hearth room makeover revealThe glass top tables we purchased a couple years ago on clearance from World Market. The drawers slide out so you can put items on display under the glass. Right now I have some old family keepsakes in each one, including my grandfather’s old pipe.

    This is so inviting – I would never get anything done becasue I would be in there ALL THE TIME.

    Love the magazine table – I need that to get the stack of papers off my coffee table.

    Beautifully put together! Two questions for you though – How big is your great rug and could you give details on the valances? I am window treatment challenged! Thanks!

    Gorgeous! Can you tell me the wall color you used? I’m having a hard time finding a neutral, off white color that doesn’t look too pink or too yellow!

    I LOVE the rug, and I’ve been scouring Target’s website and can’t seem to find it. Do you remember the brand/name, by any chance? Hopefully I’m not too late and they’re still selling it!
