Living Room Reveal: The Design…

Happy Saturday everyone! Today, I’m SO excited to finally share with you the design portion of my living room reveal with GateHouse no. 1 and LEE Industries. Slowly, Drew and I have been trying to fill each space in our home and the living room has been at the top of our list! It’s the first room guests see when they walk in our home so it was important for the space to be cozy, inviting and stylish.

GateHouse No. 1 has always been one of my favorite local furniture boutiques. Much of my mom’s home was designed and styled by GateHouse so I have always trusted both their product lines and eye for design. Over a year ago, I spotted a certain pink velvet chair at GateHouse and asked if I could borrow it for this photo shoot. I kind of became obsessed with the pink chair and the designer of it, LEE Industries.


lee-industries-fabric-swatcheslee-industries-fabricWhen GateHouse and LEE Industries wanted to team up with me to create our dream living room, both Drew and I were thrilled! For the project, the GateHouse design team: Stephanie, Chanelle and Brandalyn started working with me to come up with a room concept and color/pattern scheme. We decided on a rich navy velvet for a tufted sofa, a subtle leopard print for an accent chair, a soft powder grey for a pair modern tufted chairs, a deco inspired print for a pair of ottomans and of course, that gorgeous pink velvet chair!


From there, we added in accent prints, including a floral print pillow and mixed gold accessories with silver accessories with lots of beautiful home decor books.


I’m so happy with how the design turned out and love how comfortable and inviting the space GateHouse created for me and Drew. It’s has turned into the perfect room to visit for hours when friends and family come over.

Stay tuned for the big room reveal coming next week!

xo, Rach

  33. Ann says:

    The silver-ish railing doesn’t make any sense with all that gold. Looks very awkward and uncoordinated. Love it otherwise though.

  34. Nioby says:

    Rachel, your home is gorgeous, and I absolutely love your coffee table! I was bummed when I didn’t see the details for it on this post! Would you mind sharing where you got it from? Thank you!!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
