When we moved into the home we had the builders put in a gas line so that the large wall in the living room could one day have a fireplace and built-ins. Since we were under construction with the downstairs anyway we decided to have this completed at the same time. I am thrilled with how it turned out and loving that I don't have a large blank wall to stare at anymore!
The sconces on either side of the picture are from Wayfair, click Here for more info on that artwork. The book shelves are a little bare and still need some work but that will come together over time!
Remember how the room looked when we moved in. The paint color in the picture below is Restoration Hardware's "Slate" which I loved, but it just wasn't working for me in this space so the color now is Benjamin Moore's "ozark shadows" (lightened 50%).
First they pulled back the carpet and framed in the opening for the fireplace, once the fireplace box was in they covered the framing in drywall. Then my cabinet guy covered all that up with cabinetry and trim!
We also added crown molding all the way around the room and framed out the windows with trim.

Remember my New Years Home Resolutions? This picture was my inspiration and I would say it came off beautifully! By now you all should know- that is my secret to decorating. I just find the look I like in a picture and then copy it!
