My Favorite Room....Northern Nesting

10.26.2012


Hi Friends!
I am so happy to be part of Kim's "My Favorite Room" series! Kim has been a friend since our Rate My Space days and she is one of the reasons I started a blog!

One of my favorite rooms now, would have to be my living room. This room has also been known to be my Achilles heel! Anyone else have a room like that in their home?
I can't even count how many times this wall has been changed in the last year! I think this way is a keeper!

After doing a little a lot of tweaking I can say it's a room I love to be in!
This is my favorite piece so far! My tag sale chest that I redid last year in AS Aubusson Blue. It holds all my table linens an few other things.
Recently gave this clock a new look too using AS French Linen & Old White. Love that paint!

 This is where you'll find me at night after the kids are in bed thumbing through my decorating books or magazines.
 Where I sit and contemplate what can I change  next or what the next project on the never ending list is going to be!

   I love all the sun that comes in through these windows (even though I had to play around with the settings on my camera a hundred times to get a good pic LOL!)

 Thanks so much Kim for having me over today and giving me the chance to show you all " My Favorite Room."
Feel free to stop by anytime, I love making new friends!

Thank you so much, Martina, for sharing your beautiful welcoming living room. I love all the beautiful light coming in. Yes, we go all the way back to the days of Rate My Space and we had to nudge you on over to blogging and so glad you did.

If you don't know Martina or her blog, Northern Nesting, please go over for a visit and say hello. You will find more beautiful rooms in her home to enjoy. She also whips out some beautiful painted furniture pieces around her home, too.

I am so excited my special house guest will be here around lunch time. We are going to have fun.

Hope you have a super weekend!

  5. Beautiful room, Martina! I'm glad it wound up being your favorite room. Sometimes those rooms that plague us turn out to be just that. I love your windows and the two chairs you have in front of it. Love all your accessories and the lampshades are a great touch in here. Thanks for sharing Martina's favorite room, Kim.

  28. Very pretty, Martina! I also like all the light that comes in! Your room is so inviting, elegant but very comfortable. You do a great job with your wall arrangements and I know they are tough to do. And I love the pale shade of yellow point on your walls, it makes the room look so sunny!

    XO,

  41. I was going to 'skip to the comments' and say that I loved your blue chest when Aubusson Blue caught my eye. I should have known AS Chalk Paint was involved. lol

    I really do love your tag sale chest - we don't have Tag Sales in AZ. Is that the same as a garage sale or a yard sale?

  42. I love Martina's blog and her room is sooo inviting. Love the chairs in front of the big window!
