This is what the living room and dining room looked like when we first bought the house.
We bought the tuxedo couch and high back chair and coffee table from Maison Corbiel in Montreal. We loved the dark colour of them and decided to use the same tone of grey in our walls, just a while lot lighter. The yellow chair is a hand me down and will be reupholstered in the future. The red hutch was a great auction find. This piece will be my jumping off point for the accent colours.
The green olive colour by Benjamin Moore was inspired by the trees that surround this side of the house. I really want to complement the surrounding area and continue to add some natural looking elements in the dining room.
Seeing that we don't yet have a dining table this room has been used mainly as a playroom for our daughter. Both the piano and wooden hutch came with the house. The piano will be relocated to the family room once we start using this room or it's designed purpose.
I have such a great feeling every time I walk into this section of the house. It makes me feel so comfortable and at home. I hope that we did these two rooms justice in restoring them and I hope that they will bring us happiness for many, many years to come.
