Living Rooms That Should Be Mine

I had a splendid time in Massachusetts! I hope those of you who had a long weekend also had a great time.

As you may know, my Christmas tree has been up since Halloween, and now I can add to my mastery of preparedness the fact that I am approximately 92% done with my Christmas shopping. I have just one gift left to find. How is your holiday shopping going? Did anybody brave the crowds on Black Friday? 🙂

The colors in this room are wonderful. I especially like the blue chair. Via Sköna Hem.

I love this quirky and slightly traditional look. Tufting and opulent fabrics are mixed with playful patterns and unexpected lines. Elle Decor via desire to inspire.

I am really interested in this wall color. It seems to bridge the gap between so many desirable features you’d want your walls to have. It’s a wonderful rich reddish mauve, but reads as a near neutral so its hue is not overpowering. It’s also in a sweet spot in between lighter and darker tones. The darker aspect makes the room feel warm and cozy but it isn’t near the commitment or risk that a very dark color would be. The other colors in the room that it’s been paired with are beautifully complimentary. Via House to Home.

Soft neutrals have a lovely calming effect in this room. An excellent example of how to successfully mix gray and tan. Woman Magazine via my ideal home.

I really love the way they’ve furnished this loft space. Modern and laid back. Bolia via 79 ideas.

Fabulous rug, Eames rocker, plant life, and lots of modern lines. I’m sold. Via Old Brand New.

If you click on this shot to view it larger you’ll have a better understanding of why I like it so much. It’s mostly those expansive windows and the wonderful view. The furniture is not exactly my style but I’d put up with pretty much anything to have mountains right outside my door. The home of Aerin Lauder in Aspen, Colorado via Honestly, WTF.

Really loving the colors used here. Golden browns, deep orange, and bright blues. I wouldn’t pick that rug but it certainly does add a lot to the space. I’d like to snatch for myself that fantastic bonsai-looking tree out of the window. It is magnificent. What’s your favorite part of this living room? Via Sköna Hem.

    Really love the loft space with the exposed brick; looks very calm and inviting there.
