My Favorite Room.....The Lilypad Cottage

5.17.2013

Hey Savvy Southern Readers, I'm Kelly and I blog over at The Lily Pad Cottage about all things creative. I'm so excited to share my favorite spot today with you. My favorite room is kind of our everything room. We built our cozy lake house in 2010 and I knew I wanted the lower level to be one big space where everything could happen (and just about everything does with a 5 year old, a 2 year old...and white furniture!)

This is our living room, perfect for lazy Sundays, which happen rarely - you are more apt to find some crazy toddlers dancing on the ottoman or building pillow forts with their Dad.

I love all our built-in bookshelves, and am constantly rearranging them with fun vintage finds.

We love to open our windows and let the breeze off the lake in, it is so peaceful here...during nap time anyways! view

Right off the living room is the kitchen, which is great, because I can be part of the dance party while I cook...and make sure no one is scaling the bookcases... kitchen

That's our pup, Buddy Cuddles (we let my daughter pick his name, it was almost Twirly Whirly - phew!) he camps out in the kitchen and saves me a lot of time with the vacuum.

Our dining area is over on the other side of the living area and we love to eat here and watch the boats go by.

Thanks so much for hanging out in my favorite spot today, I'd love it if you stopped by The Lily Pad Cottage sometime to see what projects I'm up to, you can also take the rest of my home tour here.
 Thanks again Kim for having me!

Oh, that beautiful view. I do believe I could sit there for hours. Thanks, Kelly for sharing it with us.
Y'all will love the rest of Kelly's home so be sure and get comfy and pop on over.

  15. I would plop myself down below that window and probably sleep for days. The ONLY thing I found that helps my insomnia to any degree is the breeze and sound off the water. Raised near an ocean, it was bound to happen. Lovely lovely home. How blessed you are. Hugs. Tammy
