Our Favorite Living Room Layouts

Laying out a Living Room is no easy task. You have to think about the way a room is going to function. You need to take into account the amount of seating you’ll need. Things come into play like viewing the t.v. and making sure you have somewhere to put your feet.  We’ve rounded up a few of our most used setups for you today!

  1. loveseat / sofa /chairs / table /orange pillow /colorful pillow  2. sofa / white chairs / leather chairsplanters / blue pillows  3. cream sofa  / striped sofa / chairs / blue and green floral pillow / blue plaid pillow / light blue lumbars / blue lumbar  4. sectional / two chairs / pink pillow / gray pillow / white pillow / fiddle fig tree 5. leather sofa / gray bench / white chairs / red and gray pillows / blue pillow / black and white pillow

We always prefer a sofa over a loveseat but if you have a tighter space you might not have the option to do two big sofas.  A loveseat can be a good option because it still provides enough seating and a place to lounge.  To create the illusion that a loveseat is bigger than it is pair it with a nice big side table.

Kaysville New Build Planning Process

A couple of years ago we started on a huge new build up in the northern part of Utah with J. Fisher Companies.  This project has been a passion project for our entire team and we are excited to share it with you.  We are hoping to have it finished and photographed this Spring.  Today we are sharing the behind the scenes and inspiration behind this amazing home.

source unknown

The home sits on a beautiful lot in Kaysville, Utah that backs up to a creek.  When we started the design the farmhouse craze was sweeping across the country.  We wanted a farmhouse feel but also very classic elements that would stand the test of time.  We wanted the exterior to feel like it belonged in Utah but also have a slight nod to the East Coast. We are doing a red brick chimney with elements of natural stone and metal mixed in to the exterior.

Midway New Build Basement

To continue our tour of the Midway new build we move down to the basement. The staircase itself is beautiful with lots of natural light so we left it simple. Thin pencil moldings and classic black sconces line the stairway. Coming down into the basement the walls transform into shiplap which covers the entire main living space. Our clients wanted the basement to feel a bit more casual than the upstairs. The shiplap walls and concrete floor make this basement give the basement a lighter feel.

At the base of the stairs is a small nook. We created a little reading/conversation area that offers up an additional seating option. The real star of the basement is the custom made sectional. It has plenty of comfy seating and lounging for this big family. The recreational area of the basement has a custom made ping pong table as well as a larger-than-life scrabble board.

Morgan Farmhouse Flooring

image via Lonny   Photographed by Eric Roth More times than not we have wood floors in some area in all of our projects. We love the warmth of the wood tones and it always makes the space feel more open and larger. When designing the Morgan Farmhouse we knew that the entire main floor was going to be wood. We wanted something lighter but with warm tones. We had recently done a project with European oak hardwood floors and fell in love with them, so we wanted to go in that direction. We didn’t have the budget for solid hardwood and the Morgans wanted something with a little less up keep, so we decided to go with engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwoods have a base of veneer with a thin piece of solid hardwood on top. This gives the look of solid hardwood but at a lower cost. Engineered floors also aren’t as susceptible to expanding and contracting when exposed to moisture. You can also install engineered floors on top of concrete. The Garrison Collection has amazing options for the European oak engineered hardwoods that we were looking for. We wanted lighter wood floors but with texture and warm tones. These were our favorites that we felt would fit the space. 1. Du- Bois Chrishell / 2. Villa- Gialla Brescia / 3. Newport Pebble Beach / 4. Nouvelle Ashen / 5. Du-Bois Chantal We ended up going with option #3, the European oak pebble beach. It has great texture and color, perfect for our design and functionality of the home. The installation was easy and fast. It took 2 full days for them to install the entire main floor, which is about 1700 sq ft. We are very happy with the end product! Stay tuned for more of the finished product shots! This post sponsored by The Garrison Collection.  All opinions are our own.

Midway New Build Mudroom & Laundry Room

Our tour of the Midway new build continues with the mudroom and laundry room.  These spaces are right off the garage and greet our clients right when they walk into their home.  We put a beautiful console table right off the mudroom to drop keys and phones.

The mudroom is perfect for grandkids to store shoes and hang up their coats.

At the end of the mudroom hallway is a little nook we made into a small desk area for sorting mail and working at a computer.

The laundry room has a dual function as a laundry and sewing space.  The soft gray green paint color is a perfect contrast to the dark gray floor.

Midway New Build – Kitchen & Dining

The next stop in our Midway New Build project is the kitchen and dining spaces!  The kitchen is so calming and classic. We love the all white that is warmed up by the wood beams and floors.  We brought in glass cabinetry, closed cabinetry and open shelving to break up all the storage.

In the dining space we had a custom table made to fit the whole family!  The dining space had a lot of warm tones so we brought in a beautiful gray sideboard to break up the wood.

Morgan Farmhouse Appliances

image via lonny

When designing a home, the kitchen is one of the most important part for most people. Especially with families, its where you spend most of your time. Gathering, eating, cooking, entertaining.  All of these things need to be kept in mind while designing the layout and space in a kitchen.  One of the most important parts to the design is the appliances. We really feel like the appliances can make or break a kitchen design!  You really need to think about functionality and aesthetics. Think about what is going to work best for your needs but at the same time look great in the space.

Midway New Build Entry & Living Room

Welcome to our Midway New Build! We loved working with Timberidge Custom Homes.  This home was a true labor of love.  As we talked about in the planning process our client wanted a french farmhouse feel with lots of neutrals and pops of soft color.

We worked with the painter to choose a custom stain for the base and case throughout the house that coordinated with the hardwood floors. We love the entryway rug that we picked up at Market last year!

The Living Room is accented by wood beams and wood trim. Instead of doing built ins on either side of the fireplace we decided to do a built in bench on one side.
