My second favorite room


I say second, because my favorite room is always the kitchen, but gosh.... I think my living room is in a tie with it, in this house.

In fact, I love this room so much, that when I pass through it going into another, I'll stop and just look at it for a minute.





























Depending on what time of day it is, the colors of the room change.






















































Before I get the question of why I don't have rugs.... Mini is a rescue dog and she doesn't understand the difference between grass and rugs. My dogs are more important to me than any decor, so my rugs are stored for now.

Anyway, I didn't say a lot in this post, because I wanted you to enjoy the serenity of the room, like I do, but if you have any questions at all, I'll be happy to answer them.

I hope all of you had a lovely weekend :)

xo,
rue

I hope I didn't upset anyone with my last post, but I always speak my heart, especially when I'm passionate about something. The one thing you can always count on with me is my honesty, but I never want to hurt anyone's feelings, so if I did, I truly apologize.

  1. Hi, Rue...I am so glad you are enjoying your home. Your room looks very pretty.
    I remember back in the My Peanut Butter and Jelly Life days of the house you fell in love with...did you buy that one?

  2. Lot of gorgeous going on there! I can completely sympathize with the rug situation, but in my case it's kitties. ;-) Oh well, such is life. Have a wonderful day!

  4. Now I know why it's your second favorite room. It's so pretty. I agree my favorite room is my kitchen too. It is a very warm and inviting room, love the ceiling, doors and everything else in the room. I get the rug thing having had dogs myself.

  5. Rue, this room is a little slice of heaven! I radiates calm and sunshine. I also noticed the landscapes over the buffet. Very pretty. The book, 'Put your Best foot forward' also caught my eye. It is so much fun having you back and getting a peak back into your lovely style! Have a good week, Rue! Hugs, Genevieve

  7. Gorgeous room! I love your tiebacks and your phone ... does it work? And the 'home sweet home' over the door.

    I totally get the rug thing.

    1. The phone might work, but it's a plug in so not in this house. One day, I'd like to have it converted to one that will :)

  8. Oh, Rue! I love your living room. All the little nooks and crannys and the little window in the front door. Your vintage furnishings look so pretty and just perfect in your house. I'm so proud for you and I know your little home is just singing happy songs because you've rescued her.
    Be a sweetie,Shelia ;)

  12. What a charming room filled with such unusual architectural details! It's so cozy with your conversation grouping around the fireplace and the nice large window to let the sunshine in. You've got so many lovely pieces of furniture and yeah!, you didn't paint them white! Maybe it's the midwesterner in me, but I think wood furniture adds so much warmth to a room. Thanks for taking us on a tour of your 2nd favorite room!

  13. A lovely room, Rue. Filled with so much architectural character, and decorated in a very warm and inviting way. Beautiful floors. I see we both collect vintage books. :) I'd be very happy leafing through my old books in this enchanting room. xxx ~ Nancy

  14. Stopping to admire that room is completely understandable! That molding is to die for! You've also furnished it so beautifully. You've always had beautiful furnishings.

    Yes, there are spots in my house that I stop and stare at. And smile. :)

  15. Lovely room with lovely pieces Rue! I have that book too by the way!

  16. Gleaning ideas for picture and furniture placement! Always love your detailed pics. I want to come sit on your chairs and "use" your phone.

  17. What a beautiful room! I don't have rugs either Rue. I have allergies and it also is easier to clean without rugs in the way.

  18. Love your living room. The tile on the fireplace is special, the wood floors are beautiful!

  19. It is a great room! I think that the fact that you could not choose one room over another is a good thing, because that means that you have them exactly as you would wish them to be! xx

  21. I would love to curl up in one of those chairs, throw that comfy afghan over my lap and sip on a cup of tea while I read one of those old books. :)

  24. What an inviting room. I am totally jealous of your wood floss. This house is mostly carpet and I hate it but I can't afford to replace it right now. 😞

  25. LOVE, LOVE,LOVE everything!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I do the same thing when I walk through the living room of my 1940's house, I just enjoy the quiet peacefulness of it.
    I'm enjoying your blog, keep up the good work.

  31. Swoon. I adore this room. I feel the same about rugs. xx

  32. That stack of blue books and the clocks? Perfection! Did they come together after the room, or before the room? They would have been enough inspiration for me!

  34. I just discovered your blog on "Lines from Linderhof". I love your room! It looks so cozy, or "gezellig" as we say in Dutch.

  35. Rue, just poking around your blog, and I'm loving every minute. Your home is full of unique charm. I could live in the living room. Your French chairs, the light stream in through the windows, and all the vintage / antique details in vignettes are calling out to me.
