A Stunning Living Room Update with the Renovation Husbands

Stephen and David St. Russell, the duo behind Renovation Husbands, partnered with Sunbrella to complete their living room aesthetic with Sunbrella Taylor Curtains in White. This design and DIY duo enjoy a good project, so when they happened upon an abandoned 1893 Boston Victorian in 2017, it was love at first sight. They have spent the last several years renovating their home and sharing the process on Instagram and their blog.


Stephen and David St. Russell’s living room includes bay windows for plenty of natural light.

The Living Room

Their living room features a beautiful, moody décor with dark-painted walls and warm, natural wood accents. The darkness of the design is contrasted by an abundance of natural light from large bay windows where light spills into the room for much of the day. Stephen and David say that the white drapery is one of the primary features of this room, providing contrast and a break from the bold décor, while drawing your eyes up to the brass rod details.

A Light-Filled Space

Stephen and David report that they are very pleased with their decision to style their living room with Sunbrella Taylor curtains from Lulu & Georgia. “The Sunbrella Taylor Curtain is lined, and a great weight, while also allowing for light to make its way through.” The ideal light filtration allows plenty of natural light, while the liner provides additional privacy in the evenings.



“Sunbrella curtains are of the highest quality with great durability. We never worry about the fabric over time or our ability to keep them clean.” 

– Renovation Husbands 

Versatility to Complete Your Vision

Their other favorite feature? The versatile 3-in-1 header style. The St. Russell’s had originally planned to use brass clip rings to hang their drapery but loved the look of the back tab style so much, they decided to try something new. “We used panels to bookend the bay windows and used the center panels to bridge the gap—giving the illusion of a continuous rod. Now we have a nice clean line and love the update.”


Sunbrella Taylor curtains are effortlessly chic with rich texture and ideal light filtration.

The Perfect Finishing Touch

Stephen and David love this finishing touch to their living room design. “If we have learned anything during our time in this home, it is that incremental changes or improvements sometimes happen without planning. Inspiration can come from anywhere and a single update, which only you may notice, can make a world of difference.”
