Perfectly Eclectic

We still have a big block of painting work to get done in the living room. I'm using that as an excuse why our living room remains undecorated. Nothing hanging on the walls. Same old couch. Don't even get me started on our coffee table situation. And a rug? I will only purchase once we have aforementioned painting done.

But I can dream. I really love how these rooms are a perfect blend of traditional and modern. Let's analyze...

I haven't thought of a sunburst behind the couch, but I'm kind of loving this idea. Also how sweet are those coffee tables? Sleek but traditional.

The overtly ornate mirror reminds me of the wooden one we have at the bottom of the staircase. I love how layered this room looks, while at the same time remaining calm and clean.

This layering in this room is insane. Love the mix of prints, the cozy rug and the warm wood tones. I want to just curl up on that couch with a good book.

More living room updates to come later this week!


  1. AB
    Ditch the sunburst. They remind me of a crown of thorns and they make me itchy.
    Glad you got the door opened. Have you considered that it may be a lead into another universe or another dimension? You won't be able to tell until you walk through it and then go through the kitchen and around to where you started from in the living room. Only that complete circle will assure you it's not a twilight zone. But don't then do that in reverse or you'll be back where you started and you won't know for sure.

  2. Actually, now that you've said so, I've walked back and forth through the door, but I'm not sure I've made a full circle. Now this is making me very nervous!

    Tonight I'll walk a full circle. I will let you know if the laws of physics don't apply to our "bizarro" living room.

    John and I agree that it is easier now to get drinks and things from the kitchen into the living room when we are in our couch potato state.
