Along with all the others things accomplished last weekend we finally hung some drapes in the formal living. As you know my fireplace was one of the first things I changed when moving in, but I realized that I never gave you guys a proper view of the rooms entirety. While it's not done, it is feeling a lot cozier than before.

I've yet to find the perfect rug for the space. With the large scale of all my furnture both couches must be pushed against the walls. A rug going from wall to wall seems silly. But then again, this one isn't right either. lol.

Still missing?  A GREAT antique brass floor lamp to place beside my chesterfield.  Again, I have yet to find something GREAT. I am also on the hunt for the perfect vintage birdcage to hang from the ceiling on the right of the fireplace.  Some cool brass fireplace accesorries wouldn't hurt either.


  1. Love your living room! It's decorated beautifully.

  2. Your room is beautiful! I love what you have done with it and where it is still going! Your mirror on your mantle is "over the top" gorgeous, and I love all your white and pretty pillows you have on the leather! The rustic table blends so nicely with everything.....and you will find that perfect rug! Keep up the great design...coming together so lovely! Have a wonderful weekend! Roxie

  3. Gorgeous! So in love with your chesterfield.

  4. I know traditionally the formal living room is supposed to be something reserved for special occasions, but I like that I would feel just as cozy curling up on the couch in there as in the family room. It's lovely Kristen. Your place reminds me a little of a waxing studio I used to go to in CDM- The Bee Hive. Did you ever see it by any chance?

  5. oh. my. god. you live here?! so jealous - your house is freakin gorg.

  6. Love your room, so pretty! I'm also really liking your blog - keep up the good work!

    Have a wonderful day,

  7. Love it! It's so shabby chic- love it. Xo Megan, www.TfDiaries.com

  9. I LOVE the contrast of white interior with the dark flooring! And all the clean crisp white is just gorg! LOVE your home!
