Hollywood Regency Living Room/Dining Room Reveal

I'm finally finished....My Hollywood Regency living/dining room reveal

It was a long process adding crown molding, painting, stenciling, re-upholstery, accessorizing, rearranging, and getting it just right!

I removed every speck of pink...No you didn't...Yes, I did!  It is very calming.  At night it sparkles with all of the mercury vase candles lit!

I have been asked in the past why I don't have window coverings. Since I have plantation shutters they don't really allow for drapes since they swing open wide and my personal preference is the clean look. 

This area rug was the jumping point for the whole living room.  This gorgeous area rug is from Shaw .  I met the very kind folks from Shaw Flooring at the Haven blog conference I went to in July.  I was in their booth and there....THERE it was....The rug I knew would be perfect!  Shaw rugs are available at many big retailers.

You can see the tutorial I did on mirroring the side table HERE

The whole living room was fashioned around Billie and her gorgeous china blue eyes lol

Adding crown molding really helped finish the room...I wish I had added it years ago

LOOK CLOSE.....I stenciled the Cutting Edge "Flock Of Cranes" on the wall.  They  flew in the front door and trailed sporadically across the whole length of the entrance wall.  It is very subtle and shimmers as the light catches it.....I wish you could see it in person.

The stencil was from Cutting Edge Stencil and painted with a silver metallic paint.  Cutting Edge has so many unique stencils.  Once I looked at the price of wallpapers... I ran....Not walked... to their webpage!  For a fraction of the cost of wallpaper you can stencil any pattern, in any color.  Take a look at the Cutting Edge Stencil I used in my Hollywood Regency bedroom redo HERE.

The wall paint is a beautiful grey blue color by Sherwin Williams

I found old Hollywood glam pictures on the internet 

When they tore down the 1925 house across the street, this old heavy mirror was on the curb.  It was old and spotted and the mirroring was missing in many spots......It was perfect.   I added a plaster ornament above it.

Polka dot fabric was used as a backing in the china cabinet ...Tutorial HERE

So, there you have it....Finally...finished!  The new seating arrangement makes the whole room look bigger, it is calm and relaxing and I am really happy with the final results.

I am slowly redoing my house in the Hollywood Regency style.   You can see my:
