Are you ready to tour our living room?
This is the space you see when you walk into our home; so welcome.
Sometimes I feel so vulnerable when I share spaces in my house.
I am no means a decorator, nor do I have a huge budget to use on our house.
I just try to do the best I can, and I enjoy putting rooms together.
I think I enjoy it even more when I have a challenge.
My challenge: is a lack of funds.
I have always heard that you don’t have to be a decorator. You just have to love your space.
…and I do. I love this space.
This is where my family gathers.
This is where my kids play Legos.
This is where we watch movies.
This is where we snuggle on the couch.
This is where we have Family Home Evening, read scriptures, and have family prayer.
I love this space.
My top 3 favorite things about this room:
1. How bright it is. I didn’t put blinds on any of the windows in our Living area. I only put blinds in the bedrooms. BEST decision I ever made. I have no regrets. I love natural light.
2. My old frame. This is a window from the home my mom grew up in. I used it as a frame. I took it to a frame shop and they helped me with the mat and glass. It is my favorite. Almost everyone asks about it when they come in. I love a good conversation piece.
3. My fireplace. It is the heart of our home, and I love changing the mantle for the different seasons. I also love how it looks so symmetrical because it is flanked by two windows.
My new favorite in this room is:
The addition of the warm yellows and…
this owl. You may notice I have lots of owls that have made their way into this room.
Oh, how I love owls.
This room is my favorite because of the tall ceilings, and how it flows in to the rest of the house.
It is also my favorite because it is called the Family Room, and there is nothing better then family.
