Front Parlor

Our front parlor sits directly off the entry of our home, so we wanted to create something that reflects our style as the first impression and welcome to all that come visit. We also set out to design a room we want to spend time in (nothing stuffy or formal) and felt challenged by the smaller space. Ultimately, we loved creating a cozy modern vibe with ample seating that still honors the historic character of our home. This area has quickly become our favorite "hang" spot and we find ourselves gravitating in here, be it listening to music, reading or unwinding after a long day.

Here you'll find all of the original room sources, ideas for how you can get the look and a peek back at the entire evolution of this space since we moved in. Read on!

This room has undergone quite the transition in just the last 6 years. When we first moved in, we set it up as a formal parlor working with the furniture we had from the move and rarely set foot in here. Later, we created a home office that we used and loved every single day. Now with the office upstairs and providing a bit more privacy, we used the opportunity to reimagine the space in a way that addresses our current needs much better.
