Show Us Where You Live Friday



I'm so glad Kelly thought up this little blog extravaganza because it is super fun. And gives me a chance to steal decorating tips from some of you amazingly creative ladies! So tonite's room is the living room/family room. We're in the process of working on our family room so right now the living room serves as both. I think it's super comfortable and perfect for us (meaning it has two couches for our lazy behinds!). Plus, it has enough room to house our insane DVD collection... just wait for it..

This is looking into our living room from the front hall. In case you didn't realize it, I'm a huge fan of red. And I don't know what's up with the funky colors, but it gets better after I remembered how to work my camera.




Right when you come into the living room to the right. I love my little bench. I hide so much crap in those drawers it's ridiculous. It's also become our little catch all, hence the gym bag, purse, and Mr. Perfect's briefcase (is that what they're still called these days?). Those frames have seriously been with me since college. I think I should buy some new ones... There used to be a painting there, but this girl broke it. Domestic I am not, I was definitely trying to clean it.



Looking at the living room from the back double doors.. Hello insane DVD collection!! All those DVD's and we've never paid full price for one. Bet you didn't know I was a bargain DVD shopper. There are so few of us... There also used to be curtains on that curtain rod. Til someone washed them and they shrunk. I can't remember who that was....



The wine rack and two of my fave little knickknacks. There is absolutely no theme to our living room at all. This is back by the double doors that head out to the deck.



I love my red wall!!! I swear the coffee table is usually centered better than this! I'm blaming it on a dog running into it. They do that. Just in case you cared, that is a Beatles book on the coffee table and Mr. Perfect wants you to know it's not his. He's like one of the 2 people on the planet that don't like the Beatles. I don't even pretend to understand...



Last but not least, our entertainment center with the mister's love of his life TV. I thought our old one worked fine...




We spend almost all of our time in our living room so it's filled to the brim with all the things we love. I can't wait to get a family room though and have a "formal" living room. I've already got that junk decorated in my head!!

Question and Answer post will be up tomorrow!! I've loved all your questions so far, but you still have tonite to ask away!

Love your red wall. I am jealous! Have asked my husband number of times to paint our wall red, but it still hasn't happened.

Very cute. And about your tv - MIke keeps trying to tell me we NEED a flat screen. I think ours works just fine too.

so, we'll see!

I love the red wall!

And you're not alone, my bf is not a fan of the Beatles either. What is up with that?
