Hello and welcome if you are new to Bliss at Home today!
I’m excited to be part of another Blogger Stylin Home Tour and loved seeing Diane’s room from In My Own Style. She is such a talented decorator and the sweetest lady! If you are new to Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours, boy are you in for a treat! This is a blog hop style tour that is filled with so much eye candy and inspiration from some very talented DIY and design bloggers.
You are joining us on the last day of tours, but you can see the full list of participant links at the end of this post.
This time around we were asked to share our favorite room in our home and express why it is special and how it reflects our style. I knew right away what room I wanted to share! So welcome to my living room…
What I love most about this room is that it is the place we spend a great deal of time in. It is the heart of our little home. It is the place everyone wants to be in together.
This room felt so dark when we bought this house, and now after a lot of DIYing and paint it is full of light. The large windows give such gorgeous warm light throughout the day. It really makes this room the most pleasant place to be in at our house.
I tweak this room from time to time, but the foundation is something I really love! The large windows, the fireplace, library wall, and original hardwoods and crown molding make my little design loving heart go pitter-patter! The bones are so good in this space. I love more traditional foundations mixed in with modern and eclectic pieces and this room is exactly that.
The DIY Border Curtains I made for our summer rental were the perfect addition to these large windows. They frame them nicely without being too obtrusive. I always love to work black and white into my spaces. It’s definitely my go-to combo.
If you look closely you can see my cat-dog, Zoey, sun-bathing on one of her favorite perches.
My most favorite place to sit is on our sofa and see this view above. Our DIY fireplace makeover was such a huge game changer for this space. I also love seeing the stenciled wall in our entry way.
There are so many flea market and thrift store treasures that grace this space. So many furniture makeovers and art projects. I always think it’s amazing what you can do on a budget.
One thing I do “splurge” on every week are fresh flowers. Roses are my favorite, but I mix it up from time to time. Add some roses and brass to a room and it is a place I want to be!
My coffee table is ever-changing, but it always has books, and interesting little curiosities.
Even though I want to get a new sofa so very badly, I make this old one of ours work by adding some warm and polished touches.
I can’t leave out the DIY Library Wall that really is what this room is about. We took the television out and installed the library wall. Books, music, and memories. This room is meant for conversation, relaxation, and enjoying our family.
My youngest and the cat-dog were photo-bombing the entire shoot which was actually a lot of fun, but then I realized the little guy had rearranged the bookcases and pulled the receiver antenna out. Such is life, so the imperfection shines through. We definitely live in our house and the only time it looks perfectly styled is when I am working on a project.
Another couple of zones in this room that are important that I can’t leave out. The bar. Dave surprised me with this vintage brass Italian bar cart a couple of years ago and it adds the party to this room.
As of recently, I had to move my desk in here. So, this is my temporary office while other things are going on in this house. I wanted to keep it protected and my other office pieces are in storage until I can have them out again.
Thanks so much for having me share my favorite place in our home with you today!
