Home Tour {Living Room}

This is my first home tour post. As I get more of our house decorated, I will post more. It's a process! I got rid of all of my furniture when I moved into Nick's house because honestly it was beat up from college and being well-loved for many years. This house is bigger than anything either of us have lived in before, so we still need a lot. As in, I have an empty dining room, and a guest room that is also completely bare. I spent about every penny I made on our wedding for over a year, so now that that is over, I am finally making some headway on our home. I am really pleased with the progress I've made recently, but still have a long ways to go.
This is our house from the outside. I tried to pick two pictures that aren't too identifying, and don't show a house number. A few years ago, before I met my husband, I had an ex-boyfriend who wouldn't leave me alone after we broke up, and sometimes I worry that I am not being cautious enough by having a public blog.

We got our furniture at Haverty's and it just arrived in July. Trinket is serving as your tour guide. I had been waiting on the canvas from our wedding photographer before I hang any pictures, and it just arrived, so we will actually hang pictures on the bare walls soon.

 Up close of some details.
 I am thrilled with how this chair turned out
 This turquoise bowl has shells I've collected from different trips, and I plan to keep adding to it

One of my favorite things about the living area is the gas fireplace. I use it a lot in the winter. I just love the cozy atmosphere it provides. When I get to watch tv or relax (which seems like hardly ever), I am always down here. This room is really a lady cave for me. Nick has a man cave upstairs, and that's where he watches tv and hangs out. I very rarely go into that area when he is not home. I pass by it, since his man cave is in our loft, but I hardly ever sit down.
I plan on posting a kitchen tour next. I hope y'all have a wonderful Hump Day!


  1. It's so beautiful! I'm sorry to hear that you have a situation like that with an ex. But you're right, it's best to keep that stuff as private as possible. There are too many crazies in this world!

  2. haha I love Trinket it every photo, Hawkeye does the same thing! They love the spotlight :) The fireplace is so pretty. My parents have one, but I don't think they've used it since I was a kid and the dogs always try to go in it so there's a gate. Are they hard to maintain?

  3. I like it! Trinket is so cute as usual. :)

  4. Your house looks so pretty in the Waterlogue photo! It looks so idyllic. And I love the rug in your living room!

  5. Love this! I have never done a house tour on my blog because I'm not real thrilled with it since I moved into Brad's place and it's a 'blended' decor. We have a gas fireplace and I love it too, that is, until I have to pay the gas bill :( Geesh, it's EXPENSIVE!

  6. Beautiful!! Love the color scheme and the fireplace is a perfect focal point... The room is totally put together, but still very inviting!
