Living Room....

I sewed the window treatments several years ago from fabric I found on sale at a local upholstery shop. I bought quite a bit of it at the time. If you look around the room, you'll see many touches of this same fabric that pulls everything together. Surprisingly enough, I have never gotten tired of it, even after almost 10 years of decorating with it!
I'll be sharing the "before & after" projects of the room during the rest of this week so be sure to visit again.
Thanks for looking at my living room!


  1. I love the paneling in your livingroom! Pretty fireplace and I love that chaIR with all those different patterns! Where did you get that mirror with the checkerboard frame on the wall behind it? It's so cute!

    I especially like how you tie everything together with the B&W polka dot that I notice all over, LOVE that! Im stealing that idea, especially with adding it to the picture frame. LOVE IT!!

    I love the walls above your sofas with all those pics...love, love love it.
    Love the J in the center of the mirrors...you can tell your a rue decorator at heart.
