I did a post featuring my living room shortly after we completed it. I am reposting about it because a couple of blog friends are hosting parties about rooms.
Shasta at In the Old Road has the theme What's your favorite room?
Donna at Funky Junk Interiors party is Picture Perfect Room
I don’t know how picture perfect the room is, but I am loving it and it is now my NEW favorite room!
I’ve hung a cluster of lilacs on the French Doors to welcome you.
Let’s step inside my newly remodeled living room.
One of my favorite architectural finds, a piece from the front of a piano; hangs above the entry.
Ever since we moved into our new home, 2 1/2 yrs. ago my living room has been red, green, and black. Now it has a touch of pink and robins egg blue. I loved my furniture, which I have had for quite some time, but the room was lacking in charm.
After a couple months of hard work for hubby and I the room now has the feel I have been wanting.
Hubby put bead board on the wall and ceiling and added this shelf for me to display some of my vintage dishes.
This pic shows the ceiling a bit better.
I painted the walls a pale yellow and the bead board white.
My sofa fabric is a collection of florals, small and large and ticking. I’ve added burlap pillows that I made. There is a large yellow sisal rug placed in front of the sofa. It helps soften the wood floor.
The shelf we hung to support the heavy mirror is made from a vintage door that hubby cut in half. It’s attached to three vintage corbels.
The mirror reflects my old pillar in the entry.
Lilacs fresh from the garden. We don’t have any blooming here yet, but these came from our old home which our youngest son, Dalan bought.
I think one of the reasons why this is my favorite room is because it holds so many vintage items that are dear to me.
Like my collection of old red glassware.
An old chippy table saved by my friend, Peggy when Roberts Crafts closed their doors. The estate sale doily has a hand crochet edging, love it!
A wicker chair given to me years ago for Mothers Day by my hubby. It use to be natural with green trim.
I love all of the dishes on my shelf, but this one is special. It once belonged to my Aunt Viola.
The floral bowl I bought in Nauvoo.
I hope you enjoyed the tour.
