Show Us Where You Live Friday: Living Room Edition

Kelly started a "Show Us Where You Live Friday" blog post last Friday. I am having so much fun viewing the virtual home tours. If you missed the first tour, check out all the great kitchens HERE!
This week is the Living Room Edition. I look forward to seeing your Living Rooms! Below are pictures of what I call our Great Room. Enjoy the tour!

A picture of the great room walking in from the Kitchen--
The best part of this room is the view out the windows--
Below is the view of the great room when entering from the foyer-- I do not care for the mirror location on the left wall and plan to remove it at some point... (anyone need a round mirror!?)

The picture below is looking out toward the foyer and up at the second floor hallway
(someone is out of the bathtub and peaking through the newels :)

I love the console table below (I bought it cheap from a floor sale at Thomasville Furniture)... it holds my coffee table books and my favorite home, cooking and travel magazines. I can't bring myself to throw out these old magazines.

This is a picture of the Console Chest in the foyer hallway. I use this chest to display a few pics of our girls. Gloves, hats, scarves, etc are stored in the bottom two drawers since it's next to the coat closet--

This picture of Sophia when she was 9 months old hangs on the wall in our foyer-

Kalco Chandelier in the foyer--

Here is a close up of the custom fitted valances that are on the windows in the great room. The top border fabric is the same fabric used for the pillows on the sofa--

If you missed the tour of my kitchen, here is the KITCHEN LINK.
Thank you Kelly. I am enjoying all the home tours! Click here to go back to the Living Room Tour.
Happy Mother's Day!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Wow I love the punch of color it looks beautiful. I may steal your idea on the magazine and coffee table books...I'm always wondering how to store them...I don't want them hidden away because I refer to them quite often. Very nice.

Beautiful. First of all, I L.O.V.E. that chandelier! It's so unique. Secondly, I envy the glorious view you have! Of course, I live in the Texas Panhandle and the only green we have here are our neighbors' lawns! Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us.
