Love where you live now. Essentially, that’s the backbone of this blog. Whether you own, rent, travel, live alone or with a partner or a pet or your family – love it. It’s why we write the DIYs and why we share the process. We consider this a community where we’re all just – I don’t know – hanging out? Talking with one another? We like to think of this blog as a back and forth; we share, you share, and together, we all inspire one another. In our very specific case, we talk about home. Whether it’s us or you, let’s make this home (whatever that looks like!), a place that lays the groundwork for your hobbies, the potluck you’re hosting on Friday night, your nights in and your rushed mornings out the door.
So often we hear you say, I’m taking notes for my future home! Honestly? We hear it a lot, and we get it – we’ve been guilty of it, too! But it also hurts our hearts to know that you’re waiting – you’re holding out on your own joy for something that you think will be the magic scenario in which you can do this or that. The scenario in which you buy the sofa. Wall mount the television. Splurge on the nice bedding. Build the pantry of your dreams. Paint the cabinets!
Do you remember our friends Daniel and Meghan? They helped us completely demo Tree House, and they spent an entire weekend helping us plant trees and haul gravel and fill a doggie pit. (In other words, the very definition of true, selfless friends.) Right now, they rent an adorable apartment full of vintage charm, and although it’s already overflowing with the sweetest details, they have told us too many times that they find themselves holding back on beloved purchases because – here it is – they’re waiting on their future home.
No more, we say! As the smallest of thank yous for all that they’ve done for us, we wanted to pay it forward and surprise them with a head-to-toe living room makeover with help from Article (a brand we adore so much, we own two of their sofas)! I still don’t think they believed us until the last item was in place. Guys, we love you, and you deserve the very, very best. Like, right now. Psst: We’re also sharing the love with a $1,000 Article giveaway at the end of this post!
Living Room Before
It’s really cute already, right? Daniel and Meghan have great style, but they admitted that they rarely spend time in their living room, if at all. The sofa had seen better days, and it wasn’t very conducive to lounging (let alone for two people to sprawl or cuddle). Their only chair had been claimed by their dog, Roo, and naturally, it became his and his alone! The rug was too small, the walls sterile, and although they were obsessed with the same Hira ottoman we have at Tree House, they wanted to wait until – yup – they found their future home. Sooo, we added that ottoman to our Article shopping cart, along with a sofa and rug and a boatload of accessories!
Living Room Now
Another sign of a true friend? When we suggested we paint the walls pink, they said, which shade? (This is Benjamin Moore Odessa Pink, by the way. It’s a good one!)
It’s hard to know where to begin. The leather sectional? The garnet pillows? The oversized pouf or the cushy green rug (or, or!)? Okay, but seriously, the sofa. We landed on the Timber corner sectional in Chocolat. It was absolutely made for this space! It’s constructed of the softest analine leather, tucks nicely into the corner, and has the prettiest legs I ever did see. The down filled cushions are incredibly cushy, and the back offers support while also being sinkable. Basically, it’s a dreamboat.
The Hira ottoman started it all! Meghan picked up a tray for displaying a few favorite items, and the 30″ round is large without taking over the small(ish) room. It’s so pretty on top of the Adria rug, and the 8′ x 10′ is large enough to tuck under the sofa and fill the entire space.
For task lighting or low evening light, we mounted the Leap sconce into the corner. It has a long swiveling arm, but I’m especially in love with the copper detail. Cute, cute.
Daniel and Meghan receive great light, and apparently their thumbs are greener than ours! They already had a beautiful collection of plants, and we wanted to show them off with staggering heights. On a whim, we brought in the Oscuro bar cart in walnut, and I’m so happy we did. The plants can happily drink in the afternoon sun, but it will also be a nice landing zone to drop their keys as they come and go (the front door is just out of view, to the right, of the below photo).
They already had this great bookcase, but we layered it with the Tana stool. I’ve loved this stool for years, and I was so happy to see it in person; it’s everything I hoped it to be! Heavy, strong and handsome. It will be a nice spot to rest their drinks, or it can easily become additional seating.
The room came together better than any of us could have imagined. The peachy blush walls and the chocolate sofa, the mossy rug and the velvety plum pillows – ugh. We’re thrilled. They’re thrilled! It all feels layered and cozy and warm and so very, very Daniel and Meghan (and Roo, too!).

I love Article!
I have been eyeing an article sofa for months!
Really hoping I win this giveaway so my husband and I can wallow in that handsome Culla Spindle King bed!
I love the big sheepskin rugs they have, and the curvy leather ottomans.
I got a big Crush rug a couple weeks ago and it’s beautiful and looks really amazing.
The sectionals! Give me any one of the sectionals!
What a beautiful refresh! Love the color and texture you added- looks so cozy! And that sectional!
Loving the oscuro cabinet!
Looks very nice. I have been sitting here for a few weeks looking at Article sofas and kind of afraid to pull the trigger because I am worried about comfort. I really love the look of their leather stuff but I am worried about the hassle of returning it if I dislike it…
This looks great! I love all the Article items!
I am in the market for a new headboard and I like the SERA.
I would love the leap sconce!
The contest winnings would be great towards a new couch! I love ❤️ Article!
I’ve been eyeing the leather ottomans they have for ages.
I love the way you layered colors – the pink, chocolate, dark green, and pops on the couch! Esp with the dark wood trim. Looks so inviting and cozy! I recently convinced my parents to paint their living room pink and they love it :)
You can never go wrong with pink, we think!
I love this! We have the article charme sofa and I’ve loved it. We bought it before we had our baby and weren’t home very often. Now that we spend SO MUCH TIME at home with our baby girl, I’ve been dying to upgrade to a more cozy sectional like this one. Such a dreamboat!!
We did the same thing, and we switched the Article Gaba! We feel ya.
I always thought the Cigar sofa from Article was my favorite, but this one makes a strong case- has lots of things from the Cigar in common, plus those legs!!
That side table, love!
I’ve been eyeing that grass green velvet Sven sofa for a while. It’s so pretty!
I hadn’t seen that sofa used before – looks GREAT!
LOVE this room! The couch! The poof! Amazing.
I use a MacBook and Safari and the widget does not appear anywhere on this page… could you please help me enter the draw? I love Article!!! (And your website.)
Hi, Peggy. Sorry to hear you are having troubles! Are you able to view a Rafflecopter link at least?
Hi Kim, After many refreshs, it finally worked. Thank you for responding to my email — it was appreciated. Also, I forgot to mention that the photography on your blog is spectacular!
Ohhhh what I would do to have one of their sofas!! ?
I never would have considered this color combo of pink, burgundy, and mossy green (and it still sounds a little weird to me) but this is seriously beautiful! I’ve been eyeing that ottoman myself, might be time to take the plunge :)
Love that ottoman! I also have my eye on the Madera sideboard ?
I’ve got my eye on a Gaba Pearl White Ottoman.
I have been eyeing the modular sofas/sectionals for a while!
I love this pink! My 7 year old wants to paint her room but I was struggling with how to make it modern and have it grow with her. I love the palette you used and will use it as inspiration!
Yea!!! An article sofa is on my shopping list!!!
All the heart eyes for the Tana Stool. I looked more into it and the fact that it gain a silver patina over time only makes me fall more in love with it. I enjoy any furniture that adds character the more you use it!
Holy crap, your friends are GORGEOUS! The room is pretty great too, but that last shot really pulls it all together! Is that creepy. Am I too creepy. …Do I care, ha!
They really are the prettiest people, aren’t they? xx
The Quadra Left Sectional in Carbon Gray is what I’d get!
I always love your room tweaks and makeovers because you guys have such an approachable, easy to mAke my own type of style. Article.com just did a blog post “Outdoor Entertaining Ideas” which is perfect timing because I’m in the process of sprucing up my patio for the summer!
Happy to hear! And man, Article’s outdoor line is GORGEOUS.
So cozy! And the wood detail on that couch is gorgeous.
Love that sofa – but the ottoman has to be my favorite thing in the room!!
This makeover is so cute! I’m more in the phase of “wait till my toddler and baby get old enough for nice things,” but that’s just another excuse!
No more excuses! Choose performance fabrics and wool rugs, get a great vacuum and mop… ;)
That couch is amazing!! The whole room looks great!
I think Article is great and already own three pieces (two side tables and an accent chair). I’ve been looking at the outdoor furniture and particularly love the Sol Daybed. But I’d take anything they sell!
I think I’d pick the Tessu bed! So sleek and gorgeous. :)
i’ve had my eye on that mod armchair for months! love articlen
Beautiful! I love that this doesn’t seem overwhelming to recreate. You took a good room, added some things and -boom- great room! Thanks for a sprinkling of these “things” makeovers in addition to the construction ones.
You guys!!! I have lusted (is that an appropriate word to use in this case!!!!!?? ;) after the sven charme line for soooo longgggg. The tan is just so dang pretty. I just, with our dog basically living in the couch with us I just get so worried about how something so beautiful would hold up, ya know!? Anyway, the after is so lovely and livable and cozy and warm!
Ooo we are so guilty of the waiting…
That Tana table is handsome!
I’ve been eyeing the Sven sofas for a LONG time!
I’m loving article and looking to do an outdoor makeover with them :) Thanks for sharing. Also I have those Sam velvet pillows in blue and they added so much luster.
I’ve had the same sofa for 15 years and it is time for a serious change. I’ve been eyeing the Cigar Rawhide sofa.
I’ve dreamed of the Culla Spindle Walnut King Bed for ages – so dreamy!
Gaaaah, so much to love!!
I just moved and could really use a sectional. Fingers crossed!
I’ve been so interested in Article since I’ve seen their stuff on so many blogs now. It’s great to see such cute, mod furniture!
I have been trying to convince my boyfriend to let us replace our current hand-me-down sofa and he’s always like, “when we buy a place” lmao – so this post is so timely.
I love this sectional – but I think I love the one you guys have in your Chicago place even more.
Have him read the first couple of paragraphs, haha. :D
Hello Kim & Scott :)
First, I would like to say this is my favorite blog! I love how humble you both are and how you pay it forward when you have an opportunity. I love the photos of Lucy she is so beautiful and a blessing I’m sure. I wasn’t sure how to use the comment section for Article but I thought I would try here. I would love to have the chance to win a $1,000.00 towards a sofa from Article. I’ve been saving for the Charme Tan Leather Sofa. I put the wrong address for Instagram I’m not very good at navigating threw social media my IG address for the drawing is raquel_brinkman.
Thank you so much!
You are so kind, thank you, Raquel! xx
We have the Sven sofa and love it!
we are in the market for a new sofa so – yes please! The Articles are beautiful. we’re a no-leather fam so hoping they have some equally lovely non-leather options!
Loving the Article rugs, I especially like the look of the Adria.
The Timber may have just overtaken the Sven as my favorite Article sofa!
We need two new couches! Would love to win!
any chance you can make the VIDEOS NOT RUN automatically… and then when i click to stop about 10 secs later they restart and continue to restart no matter how many times i stop them! its a bit annoying especially as it affects scrolling down the page.
Oh, no, sorry to hear! How does it affect the page scrolling? We don’t have issues on our end, but we’d love to help and report issues to our team.
This sconce is fantastic! Makes me want to rethink my family room lighting…
We have 2 Article sofas & they are *amazing*! LOVE the pink + brown + green in this room! ?
Article is one more reason I am a proud Canadian!
Great makeover! Would love a pair of those Feast dining chairs to go with our Sven sofa!!
I love seeing color with dark wood trim. That couch is beautiful.
Love the design of this space – and even more so because it was a gift to friends.
I love it! But what happened to Roo’s very own lounge chair? :)
I’m loving the vibe! The light ottoman with the darker couch and PINK walls?! Yes!!!!!!
I absolutely love the pink walls. We have a pink sink in our kitchen that seemed awfully strange when we first bought our house but now we love it and plan to replace with a new scratch-free pink sink when we update our kitchen. I also love all the great stuff from Article. Someday we hope to replace our well loved IKEA couches with one of their leather beauties.
Awww, a pink sink! BE STILL MY HEART.
Love that sofa! & the new blog layout.
I have been eyeing the fabric version of this sofa for a month! It’s the only one I’ve found that will fit the awkward dimensions of my living room.
I’ve said it before, but I so, so love seeing you help friends rather than use sponsorships to redo your lovely home. I love the heart behind it, the practicality of it, and especially the expertise we get to see of designing new spaces with new challenges. The giveaway isn’t bad either ;)
Thank you so much, Danielle!
Beautiful transformation and a great message! Would love to win and add something special to my “right now” home!
All their sofas are calling my name (ours is in ROUGH shape). I love Timber, and Sven and Parker! They’re all so DREAM!
That Couch is dreamy!
Love the Quadra sectionals. They’re unlike anything else!
I love the gaba pearl white sectional!
Hoping the quality is as good as the blog hype. Their products sure are handsome!
I love Article’s pillows and the Soma Dawn Gray Sofa Bed.
I love the sofa you used!
I would love an Article sofa <3
I love the Hira pouf!
Totes lusting after the Sven Sectional in black leather! *heart eyes*
I am moving into a new rental at the end of the month and would love to have something from “Article” to add to my new space. So proud of this Vancouver, BC company!
That ottoman is HUGE!
I love that sofa!
Your blog is one of my favorites! Article is a great brand, I’ve been wanting the Timpani ottoman and the Culla spindle bed for our new home for months!
I’d love to get a new sofa for our fireplace room!
I love the Moon floor lamp and the Nova sofa in the darkest gray.
This is amazing. Beautiful sofa and such lovely, personal, warm styling. Looks like a great place to live — for humans, animals AND plants.
Obsessed with that couch!
So many amazing things. Article is also high on m Wish list and it’s hard to pick just a few loved items. Since it’s finally spring I have outdoor living on my mind and I love ALL the outdoor products!
Love the whole room!
Love that sectional! Enough room for all the kids!
I love the Sven sofas from Article!
I totally understand why that Hira was a must have… It’s added on our list.
I love the wood and legs on that sofa. I could also see that stool in my living room. It’s a beautiful makeover.
What a gorgeous space!! I love the message of embracing where we live *now*, not waiting for a someday future perfect home ❤️❤️
I’m so guilty of thinking, “Well, I’ll decorate in our next apartment!” and waiting to make those changes that our space so desperately needs. Our cat, Jello, has ripped up our couch’s arms, and it’s always been something I’ve wanted to replace! Time to start saving up for a purrrrty Article sectional!
Oh that rug is so nice! I would love the blue color for my living room
I am looking for a sofa or sectional for our downstairs playroom/family room but I’ve had such trouble deciding what to choose with our small space!
Just bought a house and I’d love to put the Oneira Deep Sea Blue Right Sofa Bed in my new den!
This is such a great update to their space! I have been forever swooning over the Sven sofa from Article.
I absolutely LOVE all of their outdoor collection but wish it wasn’t so $$$. I love what you guys did with this space and how it falls outside of your normal style. If I don’t win this giveaway I’m definitely considering buying that swivel arm sconce! Such an amazing price point!
Love it! Great inspiration for all of us renting and waiting for our furniture home. Thank you!
Oops. *future* home ?
Loving the warm, darker color scheme!
My living room needs the Sven in leather. Or maybe another one with a mid century modern vibe? Either way a new sofa would go a long way in helping to brighten up our lives right now. Love the makeover of your friends room! Love it when you pay it forward to someone else!
Looks great! Thank you for the chance to win!
I love this space so much!
I’m a lover of white walls but these pink ones may make me a convert.
Article is great! I’ve been looking at the Sven and Alcott sofas for ages.
I love Article, have two of their couches and would love to add their big leather ottoman.
I love that sofa and would love it in my house
Literally anything from their site would be a huge upgrade to our 10+ year old sofa from CB2. Fingers Crossed!!!!! (also thank you for opening up to Canadian residents!)
Ah! My husband and I moved across the country in January and we JUST found a house that we get to move into next month! Anything from Article would be an amazing way to help make the new place feel like home!
LOVE that rug!!
I have been eyeing the Burrard Sectional for months now. I missed the blowout sale for a leather they were retiring. I’m so sad I missed it! I hope I win the give away so I can score one, finally!
A few of Articles’ sofas have been on my list :) Great job helping out your friends! The room looks great and they look happy!
This is such a lovely room refresh – and such a unique color palette! I’ve been eyeing several pieces of furniture on Article and just haven’t pulled the trigger yet – particularly the Nord chair!
What a great space and now it looks so finished and cozy. I love article!
LOVE article! And would love some money to spend on our kitchen when we’re done with it! We’re tearing it out Monday and girl’s going to need some new things to dress it up with when we’re done.
I would love to buy a new couch!
That pouf!! <3
loving that sofa!
I’m particularly drawn to the Matrix chair — would love to have a couple for my living room!
I’ve wanted the Sven sectional for ever and ever!!!
Oh my! I’ve been thinking about a pouf instead of our coffee table in our new house. The Bamba pouf has my heart, but now so do the other big ones – the Zuni and Hira!
Have been eyeing a new dining table from them for months! Fingers crossed!
I can’t believe you got them to go pink, but I love the result.
Well yes, I will be purchasing one of those rugs, please!
Love this makeover! We are in the market for a new bedroom makeover and love Articles stuff!
Looks so great!
Love Article. Any idea where that wooden tray is from?
It’s this one from Crate & Barrel :)
I hope they find their dream home. But in the meantime, this living room is dreamy!
I LOVE that pouf!
Such a great space!!!! Y’all are amazing!
LOVING this sofa, gah!
I love this! Love how natural yet polished it looks! So fabulous!
It looks amazing. I am loving this color combo so much!
I love that wall color so much! And that sectional ????
Love this. I’Ve been at a standstill with my living room for *years*. This would give me the kick in the butt I need!! Thanks for the opportunity :)
This makeover looks great!!
Always will enter an Article giveaway. I have my eye on one of their mirrors right now.
I’ve had my eye on the Sven sofa for ages, but now the Anton has caught my eye…
I hope to own the Sven sofa one day *swoon*
That lamp is ?
I love the Culla Spindle bed!
We’re shopping for a super deep sectional in a whitish/ivoryish color. Love the gabba in pearl.
What a wonderful giveaway! We’re in the process of decorating our living room and I’ve been obsessed with the Luxu chair for ages!
Thanks to for the giveaway. I would love an Article sofa.
I love Article and have been wanting one of their pieces for a long time! We just had a baby this past year and spruced up the living room with some built-in shelves. Now its begging for a new sectional. The Parker, Burrard, and Oneira on my top 3!
I love all of this so much! Especially that rug for our dining room!
Love that rug!!
I love the Sven Charme Tan Sofa and the Tablet Charme Blonde Rectangular Ottoman so much!!
I JUST bought the burrard sectional and I LOVE IT. big enough for me, the kid, and the pup to all sit but not be in each others space. And the leather is amazing! Next: upping my outdoor furniture.
I want one of their sectionals …just have to figure out which one!
I have an aniline leather sofa from Article, but am totally crushing on that sectional. And pairing it with the ottoman is just perfect.
want it all!
Sounds like great friends all around — taking good care of each other! Thank you for the reminder to love where you live — even if it feels incomplete — and for helping a lucky recipient get closer to a coveted piece from Article. Lucy has lovely role models.
I love the sectional here! xo
I love everything about the ottoman you used. The color and texture and size are all so perfect with the sectional. If I did not have cats I would be fully sold on the exact piece you used because we currently need to replace our coffee table.
The sofa looks so comfortable!
Been eyeing the tana stool and outdoor lounge chairs for a patio upgrade!
I totally understand about feeling like we’re waiting to start building toward a perfect space… good reminder to just get started NOW!
Article has the best furniture! So chic and timeless. I would absolutely ADORE that sofa in my living room. Love the makeover!
This is a beautiful room, hard to pick just one favorite item.
What a great makeover! And a great reminder to love where you are now! It’s definitely time to upgrade my sofa and Article has so many amazing ones!!
Would love a new sofa!
I really like the Hira ottoman. We could definitely use it in our living room.
Love how cozy this looks. I have a super “kid” living room right now that could use some elevation that Article would provide.
Wow! Article has so many beautiful things. I love the Sven sofa!
Love the use of a green rug with the pink walls- I would never have thought of that!
One of my favorite things is the Hira pouf!!
Love the room and Article!
Love this makeover! My husband and I live in a basement rental and this has given me so much more excitement than I had before to tackle our space <3
I’ve been eyeing the sofa bed sectionals!
This is so good! I’ve been eyeing the Soma midnight blue sofa bed for my apartment…
Wow! I would LOVE to win – I’m in the process of moving to a new place and have basically no furniture except a desk.
I love all their outdoor teak furniture.
Def in need of an article couch upgrade! This one is ?.
Love everything about this room!
I don’t think I would have picked that color combo, but it looks fantastic! Definitely want to paint something pink =)
Seems like you’ve all found great friendship in each other. So special. I love the mix of color and texture. Very inspiring. We need a cozy rug, and will be checking this one out!
Dude, I’m in love with that exact shade of green in the Adria Rug.
That Hira ottoman would be perfect for my 18 month old to climb all over in our living room, rather than the hard pointy coffee table we currently have…
It’s really nice that you shared the love with your generous friends. I sure do love the pink, the sofa, and that rug! Love your blog!
Looks lovely! Sure do like that pink.
Beautiful makeover with great color! I’m currently living with my ex’s sofa so a new one would be nice :)
Well this is exciting! Love the pink walls! We are eyeballing a modular sofa from article that can make its way up our narrow staircase. We want a couch we can cuddle on and like you said, don’t want to have to wait for our someday house to be comfortable!
That sofa looks very appealing, especially the frame and leg detail and the quality of aniline-dyed leather with down-filled cushions. Daniel, Meghan (and Roo) must be thrilled.
You’re right that it was cute before, but now it looks so warm and cozy and someplace anyone would love to hang out.
Ooh. We moved to a new house a month ago and I’ve been searching for a sectional. I’ve looked at the timber a few times but it seemed too rustic. I love how you’ve styled it, though! Maybe it could work for me, too! I agree that the legs are gorgeous!
I love that stool. Thanks for this post. I’m in a rental and am currently taking steps to make it my own…despite not actually owning it.
Love this makeover! I’ve been eyeing a similar Article sectional for over a year! Fingers crossed!
I’d be thrilled to have either the Mello Taos sectional or the Cigar sofa in my home.
What a surprising makeover. I really love the color combo! That couch looks so comfy and the pouf is cute. I’ve been looking at Article couches for months but haven’t yet been able to decide on one. This is really helping sway me.
I want that Timber sofa! But I’m also a sucker for any of the cognac-colored leather options.
We love our Article sofa! Have had my eye on one of the the varna coffee tables!
We have the Seno dining table and it’s gorgeous! I’ve had my eye on the Ansa bench lately and those fun Daisy outdoor chairs!
Love the Ceni line!
Could sink into that sectional and pile on all the kids!
Article has such inspirational pieces. Love them!
We chose the Article Gaba and it’s truly a dreamboat! I also have their Conico Pink floor lamp and the color pairs excellent against the linen couch.
I’ve been wanting their Sven Charme tan sofa for years. Literally years. I have an entire room pulled together with sourced tables/lamps/rugs and decor already….
I have been eyeing everything as I prepare to move and buy new pieces, especially a sofa.
Love their products!
This room is absolutely beautiful! I love the pink walls (not too pink!) with the chocolate sofa. Pink + brown = winner in my book.
I luuuuuuuuv that Hira ottoman!
We’ve had an old ikea sofa and it’s been broken for months and looks so ghetto ? a new couch would be amazing
This sectional is amazing!
I don’t have a piece of furniture from Article YET, but I have been looking. I am sure that I will land on something soon!
I love all of this and would love to win as we also desperately need a new sofa/sectional! Ours is over 20 years old….
It looks so good. And comfy! I’m obsessed.
Looove so many pieces from article, but currently on the hunt for a sleeper, so for now living the soma ??????
I love the sofas! but that poof that you used as the coffeetable is my favorite.
Such a pretty space! I’ve been eyeing the Corda outdoor line for our deck.
Love the quality of Article! The few things I have purchased so far will make me go back over and over again! I have been eyeing the Embrace chair for an accent!
Love their sofas but what I really need is a bigger rug and one of those beautiful soft ottomans before my baby starts walking!
I love the Sven chair in blue!
I’m guilty of this! In 11 years, my husband and I have lived in no less than 7 different homes, in 2 cities (with a new city on the horizon this summer). I’ve never invested in a good couch because I was waiting for us to put down roots. Our current couch belonged to a neighbor across the hall – she was moving out as we were helping a Japanese exchange student in our building furnish his apartment for a year. And when he moved on, we took it!
What a great makeover. I just moved and my new living room seems to be calling for a sectional. Loving the Article Ceni sectional for my space!
I am sitting in an Article chair as we speak! I would LOVE to add the Hira Ottoman to my living room. My three year old finds all the ways to attempt injury so I think that one is a beautiful option!
I so need a pair of swivel rockers! Our TV is mounted on a side wall and we need to be able to turn our chairs to view it, then return the chairs to an attractive conversational position after watching TV. Article has amazingly beautiful swivel rockers.
The Ceni loveseat looks comfy!
I love the Timber sectional!
Beautiful makeover! I adore Article!
I can just see my family doing movie night on a Timber Chame Tan Corner Sectional — fingers crossed!
Wish the timpani ottoman came in a slightly smaller version!
Love article, and love the new blog look!
Yay! Fingers crossed
Really enjoyed the post- such a happy ending and great choices! I have a hard time committing to furniture- the possibility of making a mistake that will hit you in the wallet- it is hard! But your blog is inspiring!
Thank you for continuing to use Article products. They’re so beautiful! I have always wanted the Sven but your post here about the Timber has me thinking otherwise!
Thank you for the reminder to love where we live RIGHT NOW! So sweet and generous of you guys to do this stunning makeover for your friends!
The bar cart is gorgeous!
The leather on that sofa looks so sumptuous!
Amazing space and your friends also sound amazing!!!
We moved to an old Chicago bungalow with an awesome deck at the end of last summer. After we repaint it in the next few weeks, we need some lounge furniture! I’m eying the Corda beach sand sofa!
Love the sven sofa!
I’m in LOVE with Article’s Sol Daybed and Beau Mirror!
I’ve had my eye on that Sven for awhile.
there’s an article sofa on my wishlist. completely loving the vibe of this room!
We just placed our first order with Article a few weeks ago — we got the Otio armchair and the Tova coffee table and could NOT be happier! The Otio chair is UNBELIEVABLE, probably my favourite chair ever. SO comfortable, beautiful walnut frame and perfect upholstery. LOVE.
I love Article’s products! I’ve been eyeing different side tables as a living room refresh but just need to take the leap and place my order!
i have already been saving several items in my article cart!
I am in love with that ottoman! We purchase two sofas from Article about a year ago and have been thrilled with them both, now I’m just biding my time until I can switch out some old pieces for new Article treasures!
I love this room! I want to move it, almost exactly to my house… Thanks for the great inspiration!
Daniel and Meghan sound like the best friends to have–we have a few too, and we’re always grateful when they show up for whatever we need. It’s so nice that you did this for them.
I would love to get two sofas for a great conversational layout for our living room (I mean, I have two already, but one has upholstery that is starting to tear, and the other one is edging up to a decade old Ikea Ektorp). I love this room makeover, too!
I love the texture that ottoman lends to the space. It’s warm and cozy!
Thanks for the chance to win! I love the Sven Sectional. I love a good chaise and it would be perfect in our living room. The living room you created for your friends is so cozy and anyone would be lucky to curl right up there. I love all of the plants!
My husband + our twin 2-year-olds are in our house for the long-haul. We’re in the middle of a big addition that will add 800 sqft of living space to our main living floor, + 800 down below for his pottery studio and a small rentable studio apartment. I can’t wait, but I’m also really anxious about furnishing it (mostly the cost of doing so, after spending our 7 years of savings on the addition itself). I’ve been daydreaming about our main big splurge being a great corner sectional couch, so I love your blog posts involving couch selections (Timber and Mello) and I also WANT the svelti dining chairs for our normal dining table!
Love the sofa!
I have several pieces from Article and really like them! I’d love a new headboard like the Sera maybe and a new couch for my living room. I can’t decide between grey or black
Oh what perfect timing! I have been eyeing a couple of their beds. Article’s new outdoor line is also to die for.
Obsessed with this makeover! It would be a dream come true to win this giveaway!!!
I love the Abisko Mist Gray Sofa
I would love to redo our “wood room.” It has furniture from our old house and everything is too brown.
Love how much warmer the colored walls make the room!
This room turned out so beautifully!! The Article sofa is incredible!!
I love the Sven Pacific Blue Sofa and Mira Dining Chairs!
I just lost a good hour dreaming while perusing Article’s website.
That green velvet Sven sofa…. The best!
I need a new dresser, so my favorite article from Article.com right now would be the Taiga Smoke 5 Drawer Dresser!
We want the Sven sofa so much!
Pick me, pick me!
I love this! Some things require waiting because of a landlord or finances (a bathroom renovation, for us, had us saving ideas for years before we bought a place and were in a position to make it happen), but I agree wholeheartedly that it’s worth making a home you love today! And this is such a beautiful example of that. Thanks for sharing.
I love the sofas on Article especially the Gaba Pearl modular sectional. It looks so comfortable and I love the clean lines.
I love the Soma sectional with the bed what a great looking sectional. Would be perfect in my living room.

Do you still love the sofa? How’s it fairing after a few months of use?
We were just talking with Daniel and Meghan about it last week! They couldn’t stop raving about how comfortable and handsome it is.
