Interiors By Stone Textile / Modern Bungalow: Lower Level No.1

Elizabeth Mollen_Living Room 2
Last week our Austin home was featured in the October issue of Lonny Magazine.  Over the next few weeks I am going to go room by room to share some of my favorite images from the shoot as well as the photos we took prior.  When we moved in there was an empty space in the living room area where our current media built in is now.  You can see the before photo below…Yes, the whole lower level was painted lime green when we bought the house.  What a different paint makes right?  I worked with a very talented builder to create this custom book shelve and TV unit.  I wanted it to be unique so each shelve is a different size.  The black and white multi-layered cabinets were inspired by a 1970’s credenza that I saw at a vintage shop years ago and also serve as the perfect cable box/speaker/wire storage. I like when all of that is hidden.  I also had to find something for the round wall (which is the outer wall of our staircase).  I chose a beautiful vintage macramé wall hanging that I purchased on Chairish.   Here are a few more detailed shots…

AFTER:  This after shot was taken before we switched out our dining room art.  I am always changing things around and as much as I love a good gallery wall I felt like a strong piece of artwork would work better for our dining room.
