Inspiration for the Living Room

Here's the last of our living room inspiration! Tomorrow will focus more on exact products we've been thinking of, so today's post will be the last inspiration from other peoples homes. I've been loving finding photos that inspire me. Although tomorrows post will be a lot harder. I'm really more of a go with the flow decorator. I have a general idea of what I'd like to do but depending on what's on sale, or what mood I'm in, it all can change. Plus you never really know what your working with until you get all the furniture into the room and move it around. But here's a few more and a different angle.

I love the curtains and the woven grass blinds, the chandelier in the back. The desk and cabinets in the back look great! I love the light and airy feel of the room. If we decide to cut the room off by placing the couch facing the fireplace this room will be our inspiration. Minus the little tables. Both of us are tall, and Lee is big so we need large substantial furniture! Furniture that won't  break if Lee stubs his toe, furniture that will hold up to a good bump from the vacuum :) Delicate furniture does not suit us!

I love these curtains and because we now have double height windows we'll need to add some length on to the end of our curtains.

  1. It's so pretty and I can't wait to see what you two do with your new digs!

    Many Blessings,

  2. I have those curtains, except the espresso bottom - we love them. I get compliments all the time, great texture

  3. I'm so looking forward to seeing more of your new house.

  4. Love the inspiration photos! The curtains are great, and would be very easy to replicate. I totally understand about the size of the furniture...I am fairly tall (5'8") hubby is 6'2" and our youngest is 5'10"...our older daughter got the short stick, she is only 5'4"!! LOL We made sure everyone could comfortably lie down on our sofa before purchasing. With Lee's height you will need a REALLY long sofa!

  5. Love your blog! I always feel inspired to add/ change/ re-arrange after reading - which drives my (6'4"- and a half :-)) hubby crazy. In response to your previous entry about the cut above the mantel - what about a shelf to display some of your wonderful treasures or a couple of inspiration books? Just a thought...

  6. i saw somewhere on a blog where those kind of curtains were replicated with $10 cloth painters' cloths!

  7. It's gorgeous! Love the floors. The "bones" look good! Congrats! Looking forward to seeing what you do!

  8. Thanks so much everyone Loving all of the Feedback! It's great to know that the curtains are as fabulous in real life as they are in the catalog!
    Also Loving the idea of making the drapes out of painters cloth, anyone know where to get painters cloth from ?

  9. oh, you just get them at the hardware store like lowes or home depot!

  10. The information and the aspect were just wonderful. I think that your viewpoint is deep, it’s just well thought out and truly incredible to see someone who knows how to put these thoughts so well. Good job!
