Living Room

My rooms are ever changing. I love my living room because we probably spend the most time in there. The only thing I don’t like about it is the TV. We don’t have our basement (family room) finished yet so the TV has to stay here, at least for a while. I just moved the furniture around about a week ago. This is basically the room now. I moved the love seat next to the fireplace, in front of the window. The leather love seat stayed where it was, as a divider from the dining area. The ottoman opens to hold all the Rock Band pieces.

The chairs were moved to the other side of the carpeted area, in front of the wood floor. The chair on the left came from Ross and the one on the right was from Target. The wall behind stayed the same.

I moved the table over and changed the decor on top. The vase came out of storage and the covered dessert stand came from the kitchen. The green apples and pears came out of storage too. The table was Hubby’s grandparents.

This is the fireplace and mantel right now. I probably change it every 2 to 3 weeks. I have a lot of random accessories in storage that I like to rotate in and out and from room to room.

This table came from Ben Franklin when the one by us was closing down. Because it was part of a display, I got it for $8. It was already painted this gray color. The pillows in the basket are for the kids to use when they lay on the floor to watch TV.

I love my clock wall. I did this 6 years ago when we first moved here. I like using clocks as art. It’s inexpensive, plus I just have a thing for clocks. I have an issue though. I wanted these red walls so bad. I picked just the right color of red and then painted them about 1 1/2 years ago. I loved them for about 1 year, now not so much. I still like the red, but I really like the brown on this next wall, so I might be painting again soon.

This is the wall behind the chairs and the color I was thinking on painting the rest of the room (or maybe a shade lighter).

Our living room pretty much reflects the rest of our house. Furniture that has been bought over time, things that have meaning to us and things we love are all in this room and the rest of our home.

    Hi Leanne, love this room! The leather sofa and slipper chairs are fantastic! Great job!

    What a great space. I had to laugh when you were talking about the t.v. Joe thinks that every room should have one and that the whole room should be decorated around it. Lol. We are always debating about that:) It’s so much fun to see so more of your home! I’m loving those chairs!

    Thanks so much for linking! And for spreading the word:)
    Have a great weekend!

    Love your warm and welcoming living room. I love your clock wall. So nice to meet someone with a clock fettish like me. I love clocks, too. Don’t know why, but when I see a different one or large rustic one I want it. Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments.

    I love this room! Love the ‘pop’ of green on the table and love the window on your mantel. Nice!

    I haven’t seen the “clock wall” idea before in just that way and really like it a lot. Please stop by if you have time. Jane F

    Love your room is neat and beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  • Mikey @ Shabby French Cottage May 7, 2010, 8:04 am

    How fantastic! I love the wall color! Your rooms is so daring and modern, yet at the same time very timeless and chic! What a wonderful talent you have! I agree we should decorate and organize everything–I tend to go overboard with decor, and forgo the organization, but I try!

  • Kendall@Finesse Your Nest May 8, 2010, 9:35 am

    Hi Leanne! Thanks for linking up to Shop The House Sunday! You really have some nice things to work with. I especially LOVE the clock wall!! I agree on the paint. That brown is gorgeous. I think I would choose just a shade lighter so the room isn’t too dark and leave the dark brown on your feature wall. Great job!

  • Richella May 10, 2010, 10:36 am

    Thanks so much for adding my party to your list! I appreciate your linking up. There are lots of fun “special touches” in this room, but I do believe the wall of clocks is my favorite! What a great idea for BIG impact at a fairly small price!

    Your home seems very warm and inviting. Thank you for sharing it!
