Living Room {Tour}

Pin It
I showed you our new dining room here, and our girls' room here.





Today, I'm showing you our new downstairs Living Room.  We really love this space!





Love these fun seagrass chairs!  They are actually pretty comfy.





The couches are THE BEST.









Do not let the white color worry you.  These slip covered sofas are fully washable, and they are holding up awesome so far!  I have successfully washed out dark melted chocolate, blue ink pen, spilled juice, and grease.  BEST investment I've ever made!


Close up of the different pillows:









I'm also loving this ottoman in the middle of the living room.  It's nice and soft on all sides; perfect for my three little ones running around!





Are the feet cute?!






To give you an idea of how awesome the drapes turned out, here is a shot of them from the 2nd floor.  They are 19 feet long, and I made them.  
Whew-that was a project!

(excuse the crummy picture...it's not easy to take a picture of windows!)




The hardware I used at the top of our window treatments are galvanized pipes, from the plumbing section at Lowe's.  Cheap and easy.




The best seat in the room.....when my kiddos let me have a moment to play!




Thanks for stopping by and checking out our new living room!

  19. The more I look at lovely neutral rooms like yours with their subtle colors and textures, I am so tempted to throw over my brightly colored eclectic livingroom and go for a soothing white palette. But soon my love for color would creep in! So I sigh and enjoy pretty homes like yours.

  25. Sarah,
    Thanks so much for linking up. I really enjoyed your post. Your home is lovely. So bright and cheerful with just enough, not too much going on. I had fun peeking into some of the other spaces too. Would love for you to link up your daughter's room. That was especially stunning.
    Have a great Memorial Day
