Creating a Comfortable Living Room


You had the perfect wedding and now need to settle into married life. Here are some tips on creating
a comfortable living room inside your new home.


A living room is nothing without comfort, and simple miscalculations like poorly-arranged furniture
can ruin the ambience of a room. A living room should serve its purpose with suitable color schemes
and attributes that create a livable atmosphere you can be proud to call your own. Comfort is a
number-one priority, and if you build your own pillow you’re more likely to create a space that’s
conducive to relaxation. (This is great because you’ll get your hands on a customized pillow, and
you can even spice things up with a water cushion!)


Learning how to build a comfortable room isn’t difficult, but if you seek guidance, you’re in the right place.
This article will outline top tips to showcasing your personal style and creating a living room that suits your
individual needs and requirements. This will quickly make your living room the most favored room in the house,
as it should be.


Measure the Room
The first step on your agenda is measuring the room. This will help you determine how much space there is,
laying the foundation for what you can and can’t include. You will discover the type of furniture that will fit nicely
and eliminate furniture that’s either too big or too small. If furniture doesn’t fit comfortably, your room will appear
overcrowded, defeating the purpose. Once you have measured your room, you can devise a plan to incorporate
suitable items.


Develop a Plan
Throwing pieces together that don’t complement each other can cause clashes that create a messy vibe. There’s nothing
worse than a room that doesn’t go together, so it’s important to devise a plan with a focal point that draws you in. You should
create a wow factor, and, by doing so, you’ll rejuvenate your room. Whether your wow factor is a television, fireplace, or piece
of artwork, you can build other features around it to create an aesthetically-pleasing environment. Simple accessories should
match your focal point, creating complementary hues.


Make Room for Conversation
The next step to creating your dream living room is arranging furniture accordingly. Execute your plan, and feel free to improvise
on the fly. You should focus on setting up in a way that encourages conversation, with furniture that faces each other. If the seating
arrangement doesn’t facilitate conversation, it can look fantastic without achieving its purpose. People shouldn’t have to strain to
speak with compatriots, otherwise this is a failure of planning.

Don’t Overload the Room
People are sometimes under the deception that all empty space should be filled, but this is rarely the case. An overcrowded room has many pitfalls, but keeping an element of space and emptiness will create a tranquil feel and provide depth. If you do too much with your room, you might overwhelm yourself. Focus on negative as well as positive space for a well-balanced aesthetic.

What do you think about adding fruit to your wedding reception centerpieces? We say why not?!


The Inn at St. John's ~ Erica + David ~ 11/25/17

Erica was referred to us by Linda at the venue and that makes us very happy! We love working at St. John's because it is a beautiful space, they offer delicious food and impeccable service.


Who doesn't love a holiday wedding? Erica and David chose Thanksgiving weekend for their nuptials. At this time the venue is all decked out and looking even better during this time of year. 


David and his guys looking so dapper!


Seriously these two are so cute!


Got to get the funky sock picture!



The ladies got all dolled up in Erica's suite adjacent to the ceremony and wedding reception space.


Love the dress shot!





Really love these special ones between mother and daughter. 



Waiting for the bride reveal to all the bridesmaids was super fun! 


The ladies were so excited to see Erica in her dress! 


It was super fun that my Assistant, Samm and I got to help coordinate this with the photographers.  After that was set we went back down to the space to finish set up. 


Love this picture with Erica and her two Mom's! Such love here! 



It's your wedding day so why not have a little fun and be silly ! 


They were truly a stunning group and Erica has such nice friends!


Now grab a kleenex as Dad sees Erica for the first time as a BRIDE!!


I so love this moment shared between a Daddy and a Daughter.....aww!


Now, we have to knock Husband-to-be's socks off next! 



Yep, she brought him to tears...perfect !! 





Ceremony time!


The Chapel at The Inn at St. John's is always stunning! We have done several weddings here over the years.



 Love seeing their happy faces as the New Mr. and Mrs.!!


Cuteness x 3 !


As you can see the families are HUGE Lions and Patriots fans so the ringbearers carried these down the aisle.


Now lets just talk about the reception space for a minute! It looked so amazing with black and silver accents. Even the waitstaff came up to me and was like we rarely see this color combo and they loved it too!


Girls got to have some bling and sparkle!!!


When setting this table up we were wondering how many bottles of wine did they have to drink to make those initials ? LOL hmmm...so worth it of course!


I love when we can carve out enough time to take a few pictures in the event space before guest arrival.  This gives the couple a few minutes to see all of the details they have been planning for months finally come to fruition. It's really a surreal experience but worth it if it can happen.


The Grand Entrance !  





Thanks Mark for wanting to take a picture of my bag!
