Because Therapy's Expensive
If our Instagram messages are any indication, the renovation of Shauna's new MCM house has caught the attention of a good number of our followers. It's crazy that everything she did was accomplished in less than two weeks, but then, we know how it can be when you have a goal to achieve. There's so much really to share we're going to cover it all in several posts. Also, it'll give you all a reason to keep coming back to get all the details. We know a little bit about how this blogging thing works. :-)
So, Part 1 will be the living room and entry way. Enjoy.
We kept the original marble floor in the entry and hardwood floors throughout which made the renovation not quite as long as it could have been.

One of our primary design philosophies is to start with a neutral backdrop and add color with art and accessories. The primary reason being that in the larger rooms of your home, it can be expensive to change out wallpaper, paint and large furniture when your style or design trends change. By keeping the "bones" neutral, it is easier to update accessories without a large investment. In this house, Shauna also wanted to keep the feel of the mid-century architecture as much as possible. In the entryway, she used a wallpaper with a modern design, but neutral coloring. The glossy white sideboard allows colorful accessories and mirror to stand out, and the vintage Moroccan shag rug ties everything together.

Living Room Before
The first step in renovating the living room was to reface the fireplace. Shauna wanted a statement installation to balance all of the white walls and when she stumbled on this wood tile from Brazil, it added just the right amount of warmth to the room. Sadly, it has been discontinued but we have linked to similar tiles below.
All of the furniture already lived in Shauna's old house, she just had to edit down a little because of the smaller space. The newest addition to the Shauna Glenn living space is of course the very controversial rug. Many of you think it is too busy. But we love it and at the end of the day, YOU have to love your home and no one else so don't listen to those people. YOU DO YOU! It is a vintage shag from Morocco purchased from Chairish. And while you can't buy the EXACT rug, we found some amazing vintage rugs on Rugs.com. The art at the top of the stairs is from Beth Gandy and the vintage Lone Ranger and Tonto prints are from Etsy. Stay tuned for a deeper dive in to Shauna's art collection in an upcoming post.
