House Tour – The Living Room

Our living room is located to the right of the foyer as you enter the front door.  It isn’t an overly large room – roughly 12′ x 14′.

I used a pair of bookcases to create a focal point on the first wall that you see.

Love the sunlight streaming in and the shadows that it creates.


It is the least used room in the whole house – used by people that is.  Remember the ferocious guard dog?  He’s just waiting for someone to bark at…


The loveseat is located on the wall directly opposite the entrance to the room.

I just love this cloche with a chippy finish and a little birdie on top.  I just stuck a decorative ball covered with faux boxwood inside it.


The bookcases and a chair are located to the left of the loveseat.

I’d like to add a wreath to the front of the bookcase made out with either faux or fake boxwood one of these days.

The wall behind the chair is on an angle and is a little difficult to work with.

Hanging and couple of pictures and adding a floor lamp help to create a cozy nook.

The double window that looks out into the front yard is flanked by skirted drapery panels that I made out of a burlap’ish fabric.

I chose to go with woven wood blinds in here and in the dining room instead of the white wood slat blinds that are in the rest of the house.  I love the look of woven wood blinds combined with drapery panels.

The plant on this table is the only live one in the room.  The rest of them are fake.  I know a lot of you don’t like fake plants, but sometimes I like them in small doses.

Here’s a closer look at one of the drapery panels.


The sunlight streaming into the room makes the green on the walls look like a mint green, but they really aren’t.  It is a richer, deeper Sherwin Williams color called Koi Pond.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you enjoyed this little tour.
