Cozy Little Living Room

My Living Room is not at all big.  It actually serves as my office, the place where I blog.  I love to be surrounded by things that I love and this room is filled with some of my most favorite antiques and treasures that I've collected over the years.


To re-upholster or not to re-upholster, that is the question...


So many of you asked about the gallery wall in here.  I actually started it over a year ago and it has kind of evolved since then.  I really think it sets the tone for this whole room.



Believe me, there were many holes in the wall before I got it right.



This piece has had several different looks over the years.  It has a mix of A.S.C.P. in Paris Gray, Chateau Gray and Olive with dark wax and gold rub n' buff.


A few of the paperweights and pipes from my collection.





What's your favorite cozy spot in your home?  Could make for a fun blog party!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulicious day!
xoxo,
Kim

Your living room looks warm and cozy. I too like the way you did your picture wall. What a undertaking that was. I know you had to put a lot of thought into it. Its really nice.

My sunroom is the spot in our new place, Kim. It is comfortable, the television is in here; I have a side table for a drink when I'm blogging; and it is far enough away from the bedroom so that if I am up early {like this morning} I can put the lamp on and blog without disturbing my husband. In our old house, I used our living room. It was such an underused room that it made sense for me to set up my office in there.

I love your gallery wall and I love the plaid chair! My favorite spot in the house is the kitchen nook. I have a wonderful view of the creek and woods- it is so peaceful.
