Home Tour~Living Room
Welcome everyone to the Show Us Where You Live~Living Room Edition. Below are pictures from our living room and our family room in the basement (also known as my husband's man cave)
This is the mantle in the living room. The mirror is my absolute favorite. My hubby got it for me as a birthday present a couple years ago. Normally I would have a fern in the planter, but my 2 year old has too much fun pulling all the leaves off the fern so I just leave the urn empty. =)
This is the chair that I love to relax in. It is so snuggly. However, with a 4 and 2 year old, there is not much time for relaxing at all.
My hubby brought the rug home from his 1st deployment for Operation Iraq Freedom. I just love all the colors in it and thought it would look great hanging in the living room.
When I do get a chance to sit down, these are my 3 favorite magazines: Southern Living, Southern Lady, and Cooking with Paula Deen.
This is our coffee table. My in-laws handed it down to us when we got married 8 years ago. I love that it is mirrored top because I can display special pieces in it and keep little fingers off those pieces. =) Right now we are displaying some of the items my hubby brought back from his 2 deployments for Operation Iraq Freedom and a training exercise to Egypt. One of my favorite pieces in it is the journal my hubby kept while he was deployed.
Here is a view of the living room looking in from the dining room. I have not done any window treatments in here because I just can not decide what I would want to do...any suggestions???
This is our entry way coming in to the living room.
A scroll with our names on it that my hubby brought back from a training exercise in Egypt.
Another view of the living room.
Now lets move the tour to the basement aka man cave ....
Here is the view looking into the office area. Behind the door is my craft room.
The sitting area...my hubby is a huge Alabama fan so he has lined the walls with his collection of prints.
Another view of the sitting area...the sofa and love seat were handed down to us by my in-laws and the recliner we purchased on our 1st Christmas.
My hubby is also a fan of Nascar and has collected several cars over the years. He displayed them inside the entertainment center cabinets. Not exactly how I would decorate it, but this is his man cave so anything goes =)
Another view of the sitting area...behind the door is the kids playroom (believe me, you do not want me to open that door..it looks like an f4 tornado came through)
And the office area again...the kids love to do everything that daddy does, so their computer is set up right next to daddy. How sweet is that =)
Hope you enjoyed the tour of our living room and family room. Check back next Friday for the next stop on the tour.
