My Home - Living Room

Today I'm going to show you the living room area in my apartment.  I finally found a seating layout I'm pleased with that works well for conversations, which is very important to me to when I entertain.





I'm always drawn to pieces that create visual interest, start conversations, or even things to play with so that my guests can feel comfortable and sort of interact with the apartment.



As someone who has a serious passion for Interior Decorating, I always feel like my home is a constant work in progress.  No matter how finished I say it is, in the back of my mind I'm constantly looking for ways to improve it. If you have a question about any of the items, please leave it in the comments. 

Stay tuned for the other rooms coming soon...

  1. iLove so many elements in your living room space!!! ;))

    I also have that ikea bookshelf and use it the same way!

    Is that a tic tac toe game, love it!

    I really want to pant, I think that is what my apartment is lacking....I just don't know if I really wanna do it, as this will be my first time.

  2. WOW, I love it! The pops of green just add a cherry element and it's sophisticated at the same time. Such a neat and clean space, great job!! :)

  3. Wow! You settled in really quickly. My living room would still be in boxes after a recent move :-) This space looks absolutely fabulous!!! Your attention to details gives the room such an amazing energy.

  4. @ Inez - Yep that's a faux tic tac toe game. Can't really play a game though it's missing an extra X or O to play, but people still toy with it.

  5. Wow, it looks great. I wish I had an eye for decorating. I am so much better with clothes and shoes than home decor. Great concept!
