My Grown Up Living Room

Don't you hate it when you take pictures, then two days later when you load them onto your computer, you realize how crappy they are? Let's just say I could stand to improve in the photography department. Anyway, here's the new furniture.  You know how when a new book or movie comes out, and you hear so much hype about it, that when you finally read/watch it yourself, you feel like it was over-rated? That's probably how some of you may feel about my furniture, because I may or may not have made a big deal about it (see yesterday's post).  But, I love it! This is originally what I wanted when we moved here a year and a half ago. I feel like we finally have a grown up, functional living room--I'm in love.  And, perhaps, I'm just feeling a little too good from all of the Scotch Guard fumes. (We Scotch Guarded ourselves, and by "we", I obviously mean Jeremy. He delivered the furniture and treated it. I didn't even pretend to help.  Sorry ladies, he's taken.)  Whatever it is: fumes, new furniture, not having to help Scotch Guard...it's working for me. 
I finally have TWO armchairs, and they are so comfy. I'm getting so practical in my old age.
I layered the rugs to add a little more color to the room. Even though our other furniture was in the same color family, the size of the new furniture made it feel a lot more beige.  I think adding the rug breaks up the beige. 
The furniture is a poly-nylon blend, but it has the look of linen.  
I really love the detail of the white stitching.


  1. Absolutely love your ottoman! I love the whole room!

  2. so cute james! how exciting! I can't wait to get new couches for our addition, so fun!

  3. It looks great! Love the couch and chairs. (A great place to curl up and blog!)

    Stopping by from SITS.

  4. It's beautiful...love the sisal rug with the stripe on top and the sunburst mirror...wonderful!!

  5. lovely choice!! This will last for quite a while. Beige never dates and you can do so much with it.

    PS. I love your sparkly green throw pillow.

  6. Beautiful! I love the bench/coffee table. I do NOT have a grown-up living room. And after 8 years of children my couch is worn out but we're hoping to move cross country this year so no point in getting a new one yet.

    Thanks for stopping by to celebrate SITS Day with me!
