Favorite Room Feature: Just a Touch of Gray

Good morning lovers! Today we have a very special guest that is sharing her favorite space with us. If you all don't know Rachel from Just a Touch of Gray, shame on you. We are absolutely kidding! Not really though. She has a fabulous blog that focuses on her house renovation that they are completing on their own. Let me tell ya. They are doing a FABULOUS job. Just you wait. 

Hello! I'm Rachel from {Just a Touch of Gray} and I'm thrilled to be here on sadie + stella today! The two stylish minds behind this fabulous blog are absolutely amazing! As I'm sure all of you visiting today already know! I was so excited when they asked me to share my favorite room with you. I have to admit I flipped flopped back and forth over the decision. You see hubs and I have been renovating our house for almost a year and a half now and have had our minds set on making it feel like "us". With just a few more rooms to go we have come a long way! But all in all I'd have to say our living room is my favorite room.
Not only is it a far cry from what we started with...
... it's also the first room I've ever decorated from top to bottom. That's right, no hand me down furniture here. I was estatic to get my hands on this room and infuse our style into it. It turned out better than I had hoped!

I also love that it's in a prime spot in our house. To the right of the fireplace is a double doorway opening up to the front sitting room, which also houses the front door and an oversized window. I also have a great view of the breakfast bar and into the kitchen right from the couch (kitchen before and afters to come), which is great for entertaining and conversing with hubs while he chefs it up! :) Behind the couch you can see the sofa table/china cabinet. Our dining room table is just beyond that. Our living room and dining room is actually one long room that spans the short side of our house, so my goal was for the spaces to be clearly defined, yet compliment each other.
But back to the living room...
We spend a lot of time in this room whether we're just lounging on the sectional in front of the tv....
...napping in my favorite spot... 
... entertaining friends and family, or playing with our precious lab in front of the fire.
I think writing this post now has me convinced this really is my favorite room!
Thanks so much to Lindsay and Lindsay for having me!
