Revisiting the living room


I've shown this room a couple of times since my mom gave me some of her furniture, after she moved, but since then, there's been a few minor changes.


I'm not sure what the deal is with the paint color in there, but depending on what time of day or what angle I take a photo, it's always changing. The picture above shows it being darker than in real life, but pretty close.

If you remember this room before, you'll notice a chair missing. I felt it was too crowded, so... poof!... into another room it went.


See what I mean about the color? 

So weird!


I found this table at a local antique store recently.


This is the part I fell in love with:


Bubba still loves his perch :)


Great grandma's lamp and some pictures of Alex, Annie and my nephews when they were small.


The mantel decor has been changed up a bit, but I'm not sure I'm loving it.


That plant doesn't seem happy with it either ;)

Looking towards the dining room, you'll see the biggest change.


I was reading something about Bunny Williams and she recommended having something in your living room that will make you use it. 

I'm not a tv in the living room kinda gal (it's in the den), so my desk was moved in here and the library piece was moved into the library.

Makes sense, huh? ;)

On top of that, she has a desk in her living room, so if it's good enough for her, it's certainly good enough for me!


The chair belonged to my friend's mother in law and she gifted me with it.

Hi Sharon! :)


I think the desk suits the space better.


Although, I'm thinking of selling that file cabinet. 

I really love it, but it just feels like too much to me and I don't have anywhere else to put it.


I know it doesn't look like I use this desk at all, but I do.

Trick photography ;)

Happy belated Autumn, everyone!

    1. What a great joy in my heart to share this to the entire public on how Dr Osato cures me from herpes1&2 with his herbs, I never believe it will work because the doctors keep saying there is no cure but I was desperate and needed to get this thing out of my body. I saw a comment online testifying how Dr Osato cure her from herpes and hpv and i contact Dr Osato and explain my problem to him and he prepare the cure and send it to me through UPS,which i use it just the way He instructed me and thank God today am a beneficiary to these cure. I went to my doctor for a checkup after 14days of taking the herbs and I did a blood test which i tested Herpes1&2 Negative and my doctor booked me for another appointment after 4 weeks to confirm my result and i retested again after 4 weeks and my result was still Negative and my doctor assured me that the virus is completely gone from my system. So I will tell you all who are looking for a cure to his/her HIV/AIDS and HERPES that Dr Osato took research before he could finally get the solution to it and a lot of people are benefiting from him right now. He also cured my Uncle and his wife from HPV. Dr Osato heals with natural herbs. Please i urge you to contact him now through his email address: osatoherbalcure@gmail.com or WhatsApp him on +2347051705853. His website is osatoherbalcure.wordpress.com and he is capable of curing HIV/AIDS, HERPES, HPV, HSV1&2, COLD SORE, CANCER of all kinds,DIABETES and so many other infections.

  2. Oh, I love it! It looks like a storybook. You have such a way with home decor. It's really charming.

  3. Your home is so charming. I love the old fashioned peacefulness of it all. I especially love that telephone. A desk in the living room is perfect!

  4. Your home is so pretty. I don't blame Bubba for having his perch on the back of that chair in the sunshine. I'd like to curl up in one of those chairs myself. That desk is absolutely amazing! How in the world did you move it? It looks like it weighs a ton!

  5. Happy Autumn! Living room looks inviting. You have a knack for decorating for sure.

  6. Everything looks perfect, as always! Are those shamrocks on your mantle? My grandmother always had a pot of shamrocks - usually in her laundry room. I was fascinated with them as a kid because they close at night and open in the mornings.
    Happy fall to you!

  7. What a wonderful spot for your gorgeous desk. Your living room is just so "homey". I think I mean cozy. Those chairs look so comfortable and your sense of style just seems so friendly to me. Now I have to see where you moved the library!

  8. Your home is stunning, modern furniture doesn't do it for me, I love your style.

  11. What a beautiful old piece of furniture (your desk). Wow! I love your sofa-it is so softly romantic and pretty. It is wonderful that you have pieces from family that have been handed down and that you love. I don't have much from my family at all.

    I hope you have a wonderful night-xo Diana

  12. Hello, and Happy Fall to you as well!
    Your living room looks inviting and comfy, and so 'You'!
    That is a marvelous desk and now that it is in the L.R. you can enjoy it and the space more frequently.
    Do you know what I love the most about your spaces? I love that they feel loved.

    Smiles and hugs..

  13. So nice to see a post from you Rue, Your home is always so lovely, warm and inviting. The wall color looks similar to mine. i was so awed by the carvings and detail on the desk and the table, so beautiful, I like the file cabinet too, I almost bought one similar at an antique store, when I went back it was gone. ~boo hoo~
    I also like your mantle, my mantle is the hardest place to decorate to suit my notion, and I am always borrowing/stealing ideas from my blogging friends! Thanks for sharing, and thank you for visiting .
    Blessings,
    Sue

  14. Great to hear from you, Rue! The place looks fabulous. I love the desk in the room and I agree, you need something that makes you go in there. My kids play piano and sing, so they drag us in there often to hear them, but when it's quiet, we ignore that room. I'd love to put a small writing desk in there. Blogging in front of the fireplace? How romantic! Be well!! xo

  21. I love how you arranged things. That desk is perfect and what a vintage piece. The file cabinet I like too. there are not any like that I see around here.
    I like how "poof" and the chair is gone. I don't like a t.v. in the living room and I can't stay in the den long because it's lived in so much with grand kids and husband making a mess of it. I like to go to the living room to read. I need something in there like you have, a desk or something useful
    You do such good work in your home and the fire place vignette, love it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Came back for another look and some inspiration. What I like about your style is the love behind it. You truly love your home and the pieces in it and it shines through. This is a real lesson in choosing things that you love over any other reason.
    I hope your daughter is doing well on her own now and that your son is happy and doing well too.

  23. I always like seeing inside your house. I want your kitchen. The desk looks great there.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I always enjoy seeing inside your house, Rue. Your rooms are so you. Your desk is magnificent! Did you tell about its history once on a post about your office? It does make sense to have something in a living room that actually makes you use it. I have two of Williams' big books on a table by my chair and still look through them. Even written years ago they are classic.

    I see what you mean about the filing cabinet. It is a great piece itself but it would be nice if there could be a space between it and the desk. Your sofa is beautiful! And the pedestal on your new old table is amazing in detail. I loved the cord hanging down by it from the lamp, easy sign that the lamp is vintage if not antique. Usually we try to hide electrical cords but this one is a piece of art, making me wonder why in the world can't they make them pretty now?

    I loved seeing this beautiful long room again and the changes you've made! Such a cozy room for autumn too.

  27. I have just found your lovely blog, and I will now read some of your older posts. Love your sitting room, and yes, colour changes according to the light in the room. Our sitting room was painged Farrow & Ball's Gervase Yellow (a limey-yellow) in 2002 (yes, 17 years ago, but we love it so much we've not changed it) and this colour can go from palest creamy yellow to deepest lime green depending on the time of day and the sunlight (or lack of sunlight), and also items outside the room. Outside our dining end of our through-sitting-dining room there is a high laurel hedge and the green light from that is reflected through the window, making the walls in that end of the room much more green-yellow than they would be if it wasn't there.
    Love your desk, but to me that would be a sideboard in the UK as there isn't a place for your knees, but it's a great piece of furniture, love it!

  44. I don't have time beating around the bush, instead I go straight to the point.... So to you doubters I ain't expecting you all to believe my testimony but only the few chosen ones by God. In a short summary, I'm here to tell the whole world that I recently got cured from my long term herpes disease, both the HSV1 and HSV2 through the assistance of Herbalist doctor Oyagu I pray God continually blesses Dr Oyagu in all he does, because he is indeed a very good, nice and powerful doctor. I’m cured of herpes disease at last! Wow I'm so much in great joy because I've never in my life believed herbs works, but meeting doctor Oyagu was an eye opener and he made me believe that herpes truly got a complete cure. I used the doctor's herbal medicine for just two weeks and I was totally cured from both my HSV1 and HSV2. I'm so excited. For help and assistance in getting rid of your herpes virus you can Call/WhatsApp doctor Oyagu on his telephone number: +2348101755322 or for more inquiries you can as well contact the doctor on EMAIL: oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com

Thank you so much for leaving a comment. It means so much to me that you took the time and I read each and every one. If you don't have a blog, look for a response under your comment. I try to get to them within a few days :)

For some reason, the comment box doesn't always show up, so if you want to leave a comment, replying to someone else's comment seems to work. Also, I've had to switch from safari to chrome in order to comment on blogger, so that might be the issue. If not, you can always reach me via email, located on my side bar. Thank you!
