A Thoughtful Place: Our Living Room

10.27.2011

Our Living Room

This is a peek into our living room.  It has evolved over time since moving into our home six years ago, and something about it now just feels right to us. So aside from accessories, fresh flowers, and holiday d├ęcor, the bones will be staying just as they are.

  20. Just beautiful, Courtney! I love the chairs in front of the fireplace. Lots of people wouldn't do that because it's the "feature of the room", but really, it's one of the best ways to highlight it (:

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love this room... so warm and cozy with a lot of personal touches... totally what I aspire to for our living room.

  22. I love your living room. I mean, you probably already knew that since I reproduced your subway sign. :)

    The Covington fabric has been a favorite of mine for years since I saw Pottery Barn's Serafina pillow cases and I would die for that Kmart ottoman!

    Did you see my house tour I posted yesterday? Stop by and let me know what you think. If you have any suggestions for bringing more color in - I'm all ears!

  28. Your blog is just beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing the tutorial on the subway art. What a clever idea for the childhood street names! I am redecorating my mother's bedroom (she lives with us) and I am going to do this for her. Thank you for the inspiration.

  31. Hi, Courtney! I briefly saw this yesterday, but didn't have time to comment...but I had to come back!!!

    G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S. (all the periods for effect, of course! Lol.)

    We have very similar taste, you have just done more of the "putting it all together" than I have. (Sigh.)

    What I love is that it's classy and sophisticated (yep, I kind of like "sophisticated"...haha) without looking overly stuffy and "don't touch me". Awesome art you made!

    I personally love (and have) this color combo b/c it's so restful, but fresh. I also love that you combine a mix of more expensive pieces with budget-friendly ones. I have a very similar smokey-blue suede chair from HomeGoods (that came with nail-head already on it), but how awesome that you added your own. Smart, cookie. ;) I did the same on our master bedroom headboard I made.

    Thanks for letting us peak inside your house. You know people are naturally curious! Haha. You are awesome...and inspiring, as usual. (I made curtains in my living room/kids' playroom with that same green trellis fabric on your pillow)...and I love the #2 pillow. I think I might have to try that (with a 3 for the kids) in my family room. I just flip-flopped the furniture in each room, so now I'm in redecorating mode for both room. (Like I have time. I say that a lot, don't I? Picking up on a trend, here?)

    Have a great Friday!

  36. The room is beautiful, Court!!! I love all the details, and I love how you've made it comfy and serene, but still with a fun amount of color. I see us curled up on that sofa for sure! Not spooning or anything, just chatting over snacks and wine. ;)

    and your pumpkin pics today are so so cute!!!

  41. Beautiful room! Love the details, especially the framed sheet music with the written notes ..the personal touches are the best!

  42. Hi! I would love to know the paint color??!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would also love to know the paint color. We have a couch the same color from Thomasville and I'm confused with which wall color to go with. I wanted a taupe before we got the couch, but now I don't think that will jive with the golden tones of the couch. So, we were thinking a variation of green, but I'd rather go neutral and throw color in with accent pieces. Thanks :) Beautiful job!

  46. Could you tell me the paint color of the room? I love the whole thing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I found a link to this on Pinterest and I thought it was funny it brought me to your blog, which I was just at for something else yesterday. I also saw your blog on another blog earlier today. So obviously, I'm meant to be viewing your blog!!!

    I must say that I could honestly move straight into this room. I can't say that about a lot of rooms where I like a few items... I love everything about it. The colors, the patterns, the frames on the walls, the smaller items too. I love it all!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I never saw a response to your paint color. What is it? It's a lovely khaki!

    Thanks!
