Living Room Tour

I'm linking up with Kelly's Korner SUYL - Living Room Tour.  I love it when she does these links because I love seeing how people decorate.  Some people have "good eyes" for design.  I'm not one of them, so I love to see what people do and if I like it, I'll try to copy the look.  My style is somewhere in between contemporary and traditional with a lean towards traditional.

Anyway, with that being said, here's my living room - the room where we spend most of out time in.

This is our view from the eat-in area of the kitchen.  I'm not fan of the mirrored shelving, but taking them down would require too much work right now. This picture was taken a few months ago so some of the elements on the mantle has changed.

This is a close-up of the sign on our mantle.  This sign reflects my sentiment exactly.

I realize I need to add some more decorative touches on the shelves because they are pretty sparse, but I'm a little intimidated because I don't want to look like a hoarder.  Hopefully, I'll  get some inspiration by going through blogs!


  1. So pretty! I love it!

    Is that a mirror behind the built-ins? Love. I so wish I had some built-ins in my living room.
