As we continue through Shauna's home and all the ongoing renovations, (seems there's always SOMETHING in progress!) we are focusing this post on the new addition. To refresh your memory, Shauna and her husband Jeff bought the mid-century home in Fort Worth back in May 2020. The house was transformed in 6 short weeks including entry way, family room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. After living in the house for a while and realizing the potential of the empty old carport, the decision was made to open up a wall and create a new living space. The old living room became a dining room, but you'll have to wait to read about that project.

Living Room Addition After
Anytime you can add more storage to a home is a good day. These built-in cabinets were done by our favorite carpenter, Colby Armstrong, and jazzed up with hardware from Modern Matter by Addison Weeks. A clean white quartz countertop provides the ideal surface for art, books and other décor.
The custom Oushak rug was designed by Shauna specifically for this space and plays perfectly with the vintage inspired striped wallpaper. Side note; our wallpaper installer was not happy when he was told the stripes needed to go horizontal instead of vertical.
One of our favorite design techniques is to buy inexpensive upholstered furniture from places like Wayfair or Overstock and have them reupholstered in something fabulous. Everyone deserves a custom piece of furniture in their home! We are hard core followers of the reviews so be sure to check those out before you buy. These ottomans were bought from Wayfair and upholstered in this amazing cut velvet fabric from Osborne and Little.
Lastly, this magic thing on the wall is a Samsung Frame TV. Framed out like a real piece of art, it comes with an assortment of art that can be displayed on the screen while not in use. You even have the option to upload your own images. Way cool, way fancy, and super casual and relaxed all at the same time.
