Show us your house - Living Room

I'm linking up with Kelly's Korner for the Show us your house series.  This week is living rooms.  I've always felt that the layout of our living room is awkward.  It certainly doesn't allow for much rearranging, but we were able to get rid of the circle of doom.  We still have a lot of work to do in this room.  Like painting the walls something other than white.  With the open floor plan we've been having a color crisis and just can't seem to decide.  

This is the view from the front door.  If you were coming in, the dog wouldn't be laying down.  We're still working on her manners.

This is the long view of the living room towards the back of the house.

 This is the opposite view towards the front of the house.

 This is the view from the Dining Room.  The pillows on the couch are on my list to replace.  The wing back chair is actually the dogs.  The pictures on the wall are new within the last year.  Before that, it was just a giant white wall.

This end of the living room is L's play area (obviously).  There's a third shelf for the wall on the right that I haven't put up yet.  The accent wall was painted a few years ago.  We were trying to figure out if we wanted to do the whole room with it, but it just seemed too dark.  So now it's just an accent.

This picture was the first piece of art we bought for the house.  The picture on the left is the boys.  The cow in the middle is the bank that my mom brought back from Texas for L.  He loves money and putting it in his bank.  The right end contains the shelf that I need to hang.


  1. You're home is beautifully decorated. The mix of colors and textures is wonderful.
    You've done an amazing job!
    I'm having so much fun visiting SUYL participants. I've been able to get some great decorating ideas and see some lovely living rooms.
