Show us your home

Kelly @ is starting a show us your homes tour. So I thought it would be fun to participate! I have a modest, plain old home. Nothing special. But it's a comfy home and I love it. Today is show your living here it is.

This is our mantle. I wish I had a larger, more distinguished mantle. I think huge, elaborate mantles are a staple of Southern homes. 

Love, love, love these bookshelves. They provide so much storage. But also collect clutter and dust.

This is E's own little area of the living room. This is where he does most of his playing, and boy does he like to play!

These are the recliners. Best furniture purchase EVER. We bought these shortly after E was born. We wanted something that would rock and also recline. 

Our end table. I love that it's round. My mom got this for me this past Christmas. 

The big comfy couch. This couch is the best nap couch every. You practically sink right into it. I hate our rug, hopefully in the next year I will be getting another one. I need something bigger for when E starts crawling. Ceramic tile is not head friendly.

I love this little nook. This is Chris's little dedicated spot. 

Glass vases are so simple, but dress up our mantle. 

I found these at Kirkland's a long time ago, right after Chris and I got married. And I'm sure they will grace every wall of any house we have. I love wrought iron.

By far my favorite piece of all. This clock separates our living room from our kitchen. The clock doesn't work, but it's such a fun decoration.


  1. gotta have toys in a living room with kids! Love the clock!

  2. I agree. I always swore when I had kids my living room would not be overran by toys...well guess what..haha! I'm "that" mom now :) And wouldn't have it any other way.

  3. I love giving everyone a space in the living area. What a great idea!
    You're home is beautifully decorated. The mix of colors and textures is wonderful.
    You've done an amazing job!

  4. Thanks! I feel like it's a hodge podge of things I've kind of collected along the way.

  5. Love your built in bookshelf! I'm a "Brandie", too!

  6. Thank you! They are perfect for storage, especially the cabinets underneath. It's a great name isn't it ;)

  7. I just love the exposed brick next to the fireplace. I just think it really adds a kick almost to the room.

  8. It's funny you don't like your rug because I was just thinking how much I love it!

  9. I've been wanting a clock like that! Lovely space!

  10. Thanks everybody. I like the rug, just don't love it. I wish it was bigger and softer. It's actually more of an outdoor rug. We needed something durable that our pets couldn't tear up, but it's not very kid friendly.
