SUYL: Living Rooms

If you are visiting from Kelly's Korner Show Us You Life: Living Room link-up (dang, that's a mouthful!) welcome :)

Since Justin and I are attempting to sell our home, I actually recently took some photos of our living room while it was very neat and tidy.

This is the view of our living room from our hallway. This looks REMARKABLY different than when we bought the house. No more GLITTER popcorn ceilings! No more horribly bland off-white walls. No more GREEN shag carpet! I love our wall colors. It reminds me of spiced pumpkin! It is a little darker and less orange in person. But with the touches of blues, reds, and blacks - it is great :)

This is the view from our kitchen/dining area. I love our black furniture. The entertainment center is three seperate pieces that we saved and saved and bought one piece at a time. This was before we got married and before I was employed! It was totally worth it. And of all places, came from Wal-Mart!

This is a shot of our couches, which again - we saved and saved for and purchased the year before we married. I love my big, plush, red fluffy couches. They just beg you to lay down on them. FYI - to future home buyers, husband not included :) I also love our new side tables, which were a recent purchase. The black/blue lamps came from Hobby Lobby, as did the metal flowers above the couch.

Our living room, for us, is homey. Warm and inviting. I feel like it just looks like a place you can walk in, fall on the couch, snuggle up and stay for awhile. Which is exactly the feel I was going for.


  1. Is that guy always on the couch? ha! reminds me of my living room!

  2. I love your bright bold colours! Love it!!!

  3. Love your wall color and those chairs are the cutest.

    1. Thanks! The chairs came from Target. We received them for a wedding gift.

  4. What a gorgeous living room space! Your home should sell with those beautiful hardwood floors.
    I love how you use color and patterns to make the space so welcoming.
    I'm having such fun visiting the SUYL participants this week! So many talented bloggers.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thanks so much :) We really love it! Appreciate you stopping by!
