My Living room

Here is a room that I haven't done much to but really like how it looks.  I was fortunate enough to inherit the walls.  They are faux yellow, brown and cream.  I really like them.  I was lucky that the furniture that I had from my last house went well in there.  I was pregnant at the time I bought the "matching" set.  My husband wanted something for our basement that we just finished and I just went out and picked out the set.  I am not a good pregnant person and do not feel well most of my pregnancies.  Hence that set... quick and easy.  Next time I pick furniture I will put more thought in to it.  It works for now and I like the results of this room.  The drapery are from Pottery Barn and I got a great deal on them.  They discontinued them for a while but then I see them in their catalog again.  I love getting deals like that.

We keep the ottoman in front of the window because that is where our dog likes to sit and watch the world go by. 

If we move the ottoman and put the tree there this is what she does...

She is not going to let the tree stop her from making sure the neighborhood is safe.

This is also the ONLY room in the house that stays halfway clean most of the time so I really like hanging out in here...  mama needs her own space.

As Always, Karie


  1. You dog cracks me up. Mine used to sit at the top of the stairs at the old house so he could see out the front window above the door. Now he has no lookout spot in this house! Maybe that's why he is always following me around.

    Your room is lovely and it is so great to have a spot that stays clean!

  2. oh my gosh you have a Rhodesian Ridgeback! we had one growing up named "Apostle" lol (my sister named him) anyway I am shocked because a lot of people haven't even heard of that breed let alone to just be blog jumping and find that you have one! he's funny sitting by the window...so cute.
    i liked your living room and I totally empathize "pregnancy brain" when it comes to decor.

  3. Yes, all of us moms need our space don't we. I'm also a fan of your dog.

  4. i love the swirled couch and ottoman... they are awesome!
