Did you all hear a squeal of delight
when I opened Kim's email asking me to contribute
to her "My Favorite Room" series?
Yup...that was me!
Thank you, Kim, for this opportunity to
guest post on your lovely blog!
My name is Mary Alice from Chateau Chic.
Our living room is
intimate, comfortable, and filled with some
of my favorite decorating and family pieces.
I love the focal point of this room...the Vintage Mantel
This is my fall mantel in the living room.
I know, I know...where are all
the pumpkins, orange foliage, and candles?
I went with a pear theme this year...very simple!
See the glass pears?
If you look closely, you'll see another one under the small cloche.
The pear theme continues on this marble top family piece.
The 24 hour antique clock is also from my
grandfather...I have to remember to
wind it everyday.
Even though I've kept my fall decor in the living room
fairly light, the wood tray and vignette on the
coffee table adds a lot of warmth to the room.
A European bread tray corrals three favorite iron urns.
To light up a corner, I swagged
a crystal chandelier.
The lovely French side table
is paired with a chair from my grandmother
that is updated with a new seat cover.
A wrought iron planter filled with old books and tin boxes
adds a subtle fall touch in an out-of-the-way spot.
Our living room has evolved
into a cozy little sanctuary
that I love.
Thank you again, Kim, for inviting your friends
and followers into my home.
Thank you, Mary Alice. Folks if you have not visited Chateau Chic, please do. She has created a wonderful cozy home filled with vintage treasures. Check out her etsy shop, too.
Have a super weekend!
