Living room decor...My Style

Hello Crafty Friends!

As most of you know we built a manufactured home up in the country on my husbands family property almost 2 years ago.  It has been a wonderful time for me because I finally (after 30+ years) got to do all the decorating the way I wanted.  

When you walk in the front door you automatically are drawn to the wall of windows that show the beautiful view of Blue Mountain that is our backyard.  I wanted to decorate with this in mind and bring the outdoors in.  I love nature and nature's colors so I had a few ways to go in regards to color choices.  I chose to go with tans, browns, teals, blue gray, amber and creams.  I also added and I love dark bronze metals, cherry wood (not the burgundy red cherry color), and java stained wood.  

Made these picture shelves
to fit this particular size and space.

I chose my couch specifically in a off white tone so that I could change the color accent pieces when ever I chose.  This couch is my very favorite piece!  It is extra wide and deep and filled with foam and down feathers.  So Comfy!!  Great to curl up on and read, look out the window, watch TV and sit in from of the fake fire place.  It does heat the whole room plus some, which was great on the snowy and rainy cold weather we finally got this year.  

Hubby got to pick out one chair and I have to live with ginormous speakers and ugly subwoofer!!  (I absolutely HATE these things!!)  He also took the covers off of them because that makes them look cooler!? UGH!  Oh well, pick my battle right?!  LOL!  Of course his friends think that is soooo cooool...whatever!  ;)  I do like the chair though.  

Hubby did a great job picking out this

Can totally do without these speakers (the 80's called and want them back!)
But I love my second hand store lamp finds
with the new shade I got for them.  

Really cute crochet blanket in the basket I am working
on for the couch though.  Maybe I should use it to
cover this ugly sub woofer...hmmmm???

The fabric on the accent chair gave me an earthy feel.  It reminds me of raindrops and fall leaves.  My sister in law was shopping with us and fell in love with the rug which was a spontaneous purchase after we had picked everything else out and it looks wonderful.  

I found the pillow at a retail store and I have always loved this saying,
LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE and it was the right teal color.

 (That's my wine bar behind the chair, LOVE IT!!!) 

We live in middle of the Mother Lode Wine country!  So this will be filled up in no time.  Literally I can go 30 minutes in any direction and hit a winery.  I custom made the shelves and added the wine glass rack.  Still need some idea on what to put to the right on the floor????

Since the dining area is part of the GREAT room I refurbished this garage sale find table and transformed it into a farmhouse table.  Complete with out initials and a heart engraved into the corner. My favorite piece and biggest accomplishment here so far. You can read more about it HERE. Labor of love!!  I love metal art and these were a great find.  

I am not a fan of captain's chairs, so I purchased 2 fabric covered chairs
that went well with the living room furniture and re-upholstered and chalk painted
the other four.  

I have done a lot of refurbishing of some of our old furniture for this house but still need items like coffee table (if I can fit one in there).  When the kids all come home everyone plops on the floor so not sure if I want one.  I really like the cut log look natural style.  

Definitely need end tables with storage and would like a long bench for under the window.  Some bigger paintings for the walls.  This house has lot's of big walls.  Someday I would like a really nice built in looking entertainment center (then I can move the fireplace to our master bedroom).  I have loads of movie memorabilia and Disney snow globe collection I would love to display.  

Love these rustic style pieces I found at  Especially the brown wood entertainment center...WOW!!  <3

Check out these pieces at!

We've had our eye on these end tables I found at

Well I hope you enjoyed the little tour of our great room decor and style.  

Until next time...
