Show Us Your Living Rooms- Home Tours

  Today, I'm linking up to one of my favorite link ups, through Kelly's blog.   It's Home Tours, and today is, "Show us your living rooms."

I love house tours.  Yes, some people are going to have grander houses than others, but that's not the part that I like.  I love to see how we all decorate the spaces that we have.  I don't feel that interior decorating is a talent of mine, but I want our home to feel homey, so that's my main goal when trying to decorate.

I would love to find a few things to decorate my mantle with, but until then I just have a couple of knickknacks on it, so it wouldn't be too bare.  Fall and Christmas seem to be easier to decorate than the rest of the year.  Anyone else struggle with decorating a mantle?  Especially when you have a TV to decorate around?

 We set up a card table in the corner for now until I can find a nice wooden game table to put there.  We love playing cards, and board games, and I think it's nice to be able to still play in the living room, around everyone else.  Plus that leaves my kitchen table, clean.  :)
Our house isn't fancy, but it's home.  It's lived in, and we love it.

If you are wanting to link up in the future, here are the upcoming dates.

Enjoy your weekend!



  1. I LOVE your living room. It is a perfect combination of organized and "clean" balanced with welcoming and homey!!

  2. I love the wall of windows you guys have. And the wainscoting!

  3. I agree that it's hard to decorate a mantle! My husband hung our TV weird because of wiring behind the wall and so it made decorating really hard for me!

  4. You have a very beautiful home. I especially love the moulding around the fireplace.

  5. I really love how clean and open it looks without while still being inviting (sometimes you feel like you can't go in a room because it is so sparse, but I think yours is just right!).

    1. Thanks! I definitely want it to feel inviting!

  6. Your living room looks beautiful AND cozy! Your windows are amazing and the view outside of them only happens on vacation for me :-p Gorgeous!
