Small Space Living Rooms

Lately I've turned a critical eye to both my living room and family room. Neither room is particularly large, but they're adjacent to each other with a fairly large doorway so the spaces feel spacious. I thought I would use today's "Humpday with Houzz" to do a little research and find small space living rooms that I like for future inspiration.

Changes for the Family Room

A little over a year ago, I found the wonderful world of blogging. I was amazed at how many fabulous home and decor blogs were out there. Two of my early faves were Mod Vintage Life and Aiken House and Gardens. From there I found others and was inspired to start my own blog. Blogging is a way for me to hold myself accountable with home projects. In order to create a blog post, you need something to blog about. Each week keeps me motivated around … [Read more...]

The Campbell Street House

If you follow my blog, you know I like to take exterior photos of historic homes in the area and give ya'll a tour.

This is the historic house on Campbell Street that I love. It's not extravagant, rather, it has simple clean lines and pretty urns out front. All … [Read more...]

I also added book pages to the insides of the doors. You know … [Read more...]

Family Room Clock Makeover

I love clocks. The bigger, the better. About a year ago I found a large wall clock on sale (half price) at The Little Traveler. The finish was a little too dark for my taste so I lightened it up with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. This is what the clock looks like today. This is what it looked like when I brought it home from The Little Traveler. Nothing wrong with the color ... I simply decided I wanted a lighter shade. I'm going for a softer … [Read more...]

Lilacs and Vintage Mirrors

After a long winter's nap, I find myself craving fresh flowers and lots of natural light. Whatever I can clip from the garden makes its way into the house. Shades aren't drawn until absolutely necessary. And this year, I'm collecting mirrors in order to bounce light around the room. But first, the flowers ... Lilacs smell divine! And you only need a few branches for a full bouquet. Awww. Baby Kitty adds a little softness to the spring … [Read more...]
