Sister's Living Room

8.19.2011

I know I change things around a lot in my home, but so does someone else. In fact, I am sure we are not alone. Here is how my sister's living room looks now. If you want to see what this room looked like last time I shared it you can click here.




 She painted the chest white and left the top brown. She said with the brown floors and brown walls and all the brown furniture she thought she would break it up with the white chest. She got the chair and ottoman from our mother since she has purchased new furniture. I will share mom's new stuff when it all comes in. Should be around Labor Day.






Another cute lamp and shade from Home Goods.







Just like I shared about the new book this morning by Charles Faudree. It's all in the details.

  6. It looks great. I actually zoomed in on that cozy corner with the Paris clock and wingback chair. I really like the beautiful mix of light and dark throughout the room.

  7. Just wanted to let you know that the white lamp beside the wingback chair came from Home Goods (not Hobby Lobby). It was a recent purchase, so they may still carry it!

  19. I think the chest looks great in the white. It breaks up the wood tones nicely. I'm glad she left the wall shelf as is. I love the tone of that wood. Just gorgeous!

  20. Everything is coming together so fabulously. I just love the Secretary. It is just beautiful. Every photo is gorgeous.

  21. Kim,
    Please tell your sister I would kill for that hanging shelf. Absolutely love it!
    Best,
    Susan

  22. Love, love that sign on the chest! Also love that she left the top of the chest brown. What a comfortable room!
    I'm jealous of the Home Goods lampshade. I have three naked lamps in my front room, and I can't find shades I like to save my life. I've been to a HG once and was immediately hooked, but I'm pretty sure they won't be opening one here in Montana any time soon.

  30. Good morning, Kim,
    Love the painted chest of drawers. Great change! And the blue bowl on top is lovely.

  31. I have to agree with everyone. You and your sister share very good decorating taste. I am admiring her wing back chair and wondering what the slip is made of....I have a wing chair I need to have a slip made for but can't make up my mind.......

    Thanks
    Andrea

  32. If I lived within driving distance of your sis, I would pull my SUV up to the back door, pry open the door, grab that wall shelf and run like *you know what* before the cops got there because I set off the alarm system. It would almost be worth the high speed chase just to have that beautiful piece in my hands for just a short time...!!!

  33. Love all the changes she made... what a difference a little paint can make... you really see the dresser now and all it's details. Love it!

  34. Your sister's room is gorgeous! I love so many elements of it. The clock really caught my eye. I definately feel the need to do some redecorating now.
    Blessings~

  35. Kim, The two of you should go into the decorating business. You both have such wonderful taste and you know how to accessorize beautifully. I especially love the shelf and the cute ruffled lamp shade.
