show us your home *living rooms*

happy friday morning to you! kelly at kelly's korner is doing another home tour series, so i thought i would join in the fun! i LOVE looking at other people's homes...i'm always interested in what the inside of a house looks like (probably from years of showing homes as a realtor ;)

so here's our living room!

this is from the entryway looking in.
and because i'm nosy and like details:
the color on the walls is repose gray from sherwin williams
the striped yellow chair is pottery barn clearance from a few years ago, and it's one of my favorite purchases ever!

another view
the couch we've had for years and just recovered it in a natural linen
the pillows are a mix of pottery barn and pier 1
coffee table is from world market i think

 i got that cute basket on the coffee table from target and filled it with little scrapbooks i've made from our vacations.
and the throw over the couch is the softest, comfiest blanket ever. it was an anniversary gift from pottery barn.
 this little vignette (i like that word, makes me feel decorator-ish;) is on the same wall as the tv, the chair  and cushion is from pier 1 and the huge clock too.
 and the mantle...the huge blank space is where our family picture goes, but i'm having a new picture framed so it's not there right now. you'll just have to imagine a big black framed picture there!
the apothecary jar filled with shells is from marshall's, seahorse from z gallerie, vase from anthro, bird picture from target, and lantern from marshall's. and i just stacked some of my fav books and put a cute sand dollar on top.
 here's another view (with miss s in her high chair-she was trying to watch olivia while i was snapping pics)
 and my piano...i bought this when we still lived in houston from the sweetest older woman, and it's traveled with us through many moves! i really want to try some annie sloan chalk paint on it--any thoughts?

i got the cute sunflowers and the love sign at marshall's and that great urn at a local boutique.
i hope you had fun "touring" our living room!
have a great weekend.
