Our Living Room



Today I'll be taking you on a tour of our living room. This is one of my favorite rooms in our house, and it's also the room that I am constantly tweaking! You can click on the pics to make them larger.

                               Looking in from the hallway
                           







              This is my favorite spot. I love my french style chairs.





                     Pillows I purchased from Ballard Designs.




                        


As always I love to here from you, and read your sweet comments. Thanks so much for stopping by!  Martina

I love the window in your living room, Martina! What great light you get! Love your French chairs and the matching pillows you added. I got a couple of tables from Bombay {among other things}, too. I wish they hadn't closed.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Great room, Martina. Love those ballard pillows in the same fabric I have that was in my bedroom, but have now moved to a new place of honor.

Diane said...

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Your living room is lovely. I remember shopping at Bombay Co. My hubby purchased a few pieces of furniture. I mostly picked us small decorating items on clearance. But I do have the same shield shaped mirror that you have hanging over the small table & chair. Thanks for stopping by my blog & for leaving me a comment. Happy St Patrick's Day!

I really love those checked pillows in your chairs.Then I saw that you got them at Ballards. I just love Ballards, too. I saw your link at The Charm of Home. I have a pie recipe there. It's really good.

Hi Martina...

Ohhh...my friend, your living room is simply glorious! I love all the beautiful sunlight that those gorgeous big ol' windows let in! Sooo pretty! Love the pretty stained glass piece that you added to your window...bet it casts all kinds of pretty colors across your room! Martina, I love your chairs...they are sooo pretty! The fabric and style are something that I would have chosen! I'm still giggling at the fact that we like so many of the same things! You have great taste, my friend! wink! Hehe! Girlfriend, I sooo enjoyed all of your beautiful vignettes...you are such a talented designer! Thank you so much for sharing your fabulous living room with us today...it was such a treat! I was wondering though...the pretty plates that you have above your sofa...are they Thomas Kinkade? They really are pretty!

Well dear friend, I'm so glad that you stopped by and took a peek at my new dishes! I really enjoyed your visit and sweet note! I have been busy working in my living room...adding a little spring to it! Hopefully I will have photos to share soon!

Have a fabulous weekend, dear lady!

I love your living room. I was surprised to see you're in NY -- it looks so southern "veranda" like. It's beautiful. You have some wonderful vignettes. The stack of tied books with the bird is adorable. I just bought some new "old" books today. I want to borrow your idea, please! My follow button isn't working but I added you to my blog roll. Love your blog!

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

You have a lot of beautiful french touches in your living room. I especially like the pillows. I can see why you enjoy this space so much.

Cindy said...

Very pretty!
Hugs, Cindy

I just discovered your blog from Savvy Southern Style. You have a beautiful house! As I was browsing through older posts, I came across the post about your daughters room. I, too, have an "almost" 11 year old and we have been looking at new bedding for her room. I LOVE the quilt you have in your daughters room!!!! Would you mind sharing where you found it?? Thanks so much!

Martina said...

Anonymous, I purchased her bedding from JC Penny last year through the catalog. Hope this helps! Thank you for the sweet comment you left, Martina

wow, just lovely!...i just found your blog through "southern savvy"....it is like the two of you are related! (are you?)...so many things the same in both of your homes, the twine tied books, the star fish in your tabletop vignette, the monogrammed pillows!

even the blog names are similar!...both of you have such lovely homes, and such great talent at decorating!
