So I am one of those people where I usually take Christmas down the day AFTER. This year I waited a few days and I’m not sure how I actually managed to do that. I am always itching for that clean feeling and want to go into the new year with our home all nice […]
I get asked daily where we got our beautiful extra long curtains that are in our living room, so I have to share this amazing sale with you all! Trust me. You will never find long curtains as inexpensive as these, and ones that look so great!! We’ve had these several years now, and they […]
Well I can’t ever say “final” about anything over here, but for now, it’s final. Like I mentioned recently, the oldest new arrangement wasn’t working out. It was crammed. And I tried to fit too much in there. It’s amazing what removing one huge leather recliner did! It’s like we can breathe now! Here’s […]
I came to a realization this past weekend. That I have a hard time letting go of furniture pieces that we bought with our hard earned money. You know, not the cheap thrifty finds that we find at garage sales or thrift stores, but the “real” furniture that we bought at a furniture store. The […]
Hope you all had a great weekend!! Today I wanted to let you in on where to find those super long curtains for very affordable prices, because I get asked all the time about ours in the living room! I posted about them years ago, and it’s still one of the top posts here, so […]
You know how sometimes you think moving furniture around is such a huge ordeal, or you are scared to try something, so you just let your furniture placement sit like it is forever? Well that was me. Sure I will move a table or a few chairs around here and there, but for the most […]
So I want to know, how many lamps do you have in your living room? Our living room recently got a little big switcheroo by my hubby when I was out of town last week. So props to him because I actually LIKE it! But one thing I hate using is our overhead lights that […]
Ahhh cowhide. It’s here to stay. You just can’t quit cowhide. And don’t worry, if you aren’t a cowboy or a cowgirl you can still love cowhide. Just like me. And today I’m going to show you all a few different ways to decorate with it, since I am participating in Beth from Home Stories […]
So remember last Fall when I went to that La-Z-Boy event and designed that room with the coral sofa? Yes, that one. Well, we received a little gift, and I use the word “little” with sarcasm. But that little gift was a brand spankin’ new sofa. And it was a grey leather sofa. My goodness. […]
So I’ve had the cowhide rug itch for several months now. Not sure why. Just one of those things I do where I wake up one morning and think crazy things like that, and then need it immediately. It’s a sickness.
This is the new cowhide rug that almost didn’t happen.
Hello friends I hope you all had a great weekend. We finally had a cool front in Texas! Today I’m so thrilled to show you all our new living room seating arrangement today! I’ve been itching to do something different in our living room since we only have brown leather furniture in there (which was bought pre-blog days), and we have always needed more seating in there, but more importantly, something to break up all of that leather.
P.S.-keep reading below for a Homegoods giveaway! Plus, I really need your help at winning this challenge so re-pinning this image from THIS link will be MUCH appreciated and I’ll love you forever. Don’t worry I will remind you all again at the end of this post. :)
So here’s the new seating area, and my new non-leather chair, hallelujah.
Hey y’all, hope you had a great weekend! I did some painting, shopping, had my baby shower, and celebrated Father’s Day so I’m pooped! But everything was great. :) I know you all have been on pins and needles (not really) to see which rug I ended up choosing for our living room, and today […]
Hey everyone thanks so much for your insight the other day about our living room rugs and Rugs USA. I’ve been checking them out and found quite a few that I really like! Wanna see? Option A. For some reason I just really love this navy rug. But I think it might be too dark […]
Well, sadly, I need to start looking for a new rug for the living room. It breaks my heart actually because I LOVE the look of this rug, but it is still shedding!!! It’s been over a year people. Yes, those beautiful rugs! They really make the room I think. And if you’re new here […]
Ever find yourself looking through old pictures and reminisce about things, whether it be your family, children, and in this case, decor? Well that’s what happened to me yesterday, so let’s take a little journey through some of the “looks” our living room has had. This was not long after we moved into our house. […]
Well our gallery wall and board and batten is done. And….we love it!! Let’s first take a look at the before picture of this wall in our living room before I show you the rest. You know, the one where the picture is hung too high? :) Well since this is a big 2-story wall, […]
Have you seen a particular pillow that has big yellow rosettes on it floating around blogland? I’ve seen it on SO many blogs and thought it was so cute, so I finally asked my Twitter friends the other day where in the world this pillow is from. Isn’t it cute?! So in case you didn’t […]
Hi everyone, hope you had a great weekend! July around here is a crazy busy month, but actually the whole summer has been. :) But, I am so thrilled with how this latest project I finished up last week turned out. Like, it may be one of my favorite projects to date. Remember when I […]
to hang up. This is what we’ve been working on this week in the living room. And when I say we, I mean my husband and I. So excuse my absence this week please. I’ve been doing about a million other things too and having fun with the little girl. But I have some goooood […]
Remember last week when I posted about my cute little foot stool and the other new additions? Well, that day my when post went up, that same evening I was out shopping with my soon to be sis-in-law for wedding stuff. And we stopped into T.J. Maxx because she needed something. Me of course wandered […]
Hi everyone, thank you so much for the sweet comments on the patio! We sure are enjoying the outdoor space now. It’s like a whole other room to decorate! :) Today I thought I would share with you all a few new things I’ve added to our living room. Not huge changes or anything, but […]
I have 2 life-changing things to say today. That may be stretching it a bit, but that’s ok. A few of you have let me know the rugs in our living room are now available in an 8×10 size at Overstock! So if you were wanting the 5×8’s like we have which are still sold […]
I do love our new rugs from Overstock that are in the living room now, but the shedding of the rugs is quite maddening. I know the rugs weren’t the most expensive (but not super cheap either), but the quality still seems good, and they are nice and thick with a good pile height. But […]
Well the home tour continues today with the new living room! It really feels like a new room. Actually the house feels like a new house again, and now finally, a home. I think we all strive to make our homes a welcoming retreat and a place to relax comfortably at the end of the […]
Umm, hello new luscious long drapes that totally transformed our living room! Where have you been all my life? Over the weekend I spent 4 hours on one of those death metal ladders hanging up the curtain rod. It wasn’t fun. Not at all. But, it was well worth the sacrifice to have those lovely […]
OH.EM.GEEEEEE!!! Y’all aren’t going to believe how the house looks now! I think I am still chanting that the house has finally been painted. And if you are totally confused right now about why I am so excited about paint, you can catch up here and here. If you have been with me on the […]
*Insert big sigh while humming along to that little diddy* I started second guessing my decision on the Balanced Beige once I painted some bigger swatches of it. It wasn’t looking as warm as I’d like, and on some walls there was a faint blue tint when the sun would shine on it. I loved […]
I’m going to add the wainscoting like I did on this wall, and in the office, to the living room. There are really only 2 connecting walls in this room, and one of them is full of windows. So, I plan on doing it to this wall on the right… But my question is, would […]
I wanted to freshen up our living room a little bit and bring in some light colored accessories. Changing out your pillows and lamps are all simple changes you can do without spending a ton of money, and it gives you a brand new look. Here’s the living room before (and please forgive the blurriness […]
Remember my “Difference Molding Can Make” post? If you don’t, I’ll be nice and show you the after picture again when we put up the chair rail and framed boxes… I liked it, but wanted to try something different. We have textured walls, so I was a little scared to try this, but I have […]
