~***Living Room Part 1***~

Hey! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I want to share with you all today my front living room tweaked after Christmas. There are two parts to this room so I will show one today and the other part in a day or so. It's a very gloomy overcast day today. 

I have showed this room to you a few times and it is ALMOST finished of course with the normal tweaking. There are a few things I need to add/ finish in here and then I think I can leave it alone for a bit haha. This is the first room you see when you enter the front door, so I want it to be as welcoming as it can be. I will let the pictures speak for themselves and not chit chat too much.

***Living Room***


Here is a view as you enter the front door.


This room drops down a few steps and on either side of the pop outs in the wall I have candle sconces.


It was hard to get a good picture of this area with the big window so I had to use the flash.  Last year I bought the curtains from Kirkland's and then added the fabric and fringe to the tops.


Here is a close- up of the arrangement on top of the T.V.  



 I am OBSESSED with pillows LOL.


I need to add a picture to this frame I had a picture of Jackson in it from his first Christmas.





I hope you all have a great day!! I will be back in a day or so to show you the other part of this room!

Gorgeous Allyson, I love all your crosses and pillows. Of course you know how to layer and use them so well. I would like to add greenery like you used, so pretty. The reds are so stunning, thank you.

Warm and inviting, Allyson! Three ideas I will borrow - putting a vignette on our huge floor TV, adding a tassel to my floor lamp and putting a candle warmer or small fountain on one side table. Yah! Like Liz at Savvy Seasons, you are encouraging me to give Ross a try again (it's been years!) Thanks so much for the inspiration.

Hi Ally! Your living room looks wonderful! I love the pillows and curtains. Would you believe I have not put my living room and kitchen back together since Christmas?? I was going to do something new but have not had time. I'm getting really sick of looking at empty tables. Maybe I'll get things done soon. Thanks for joining my party!! Kristen
