Home Improvement: Living Room

  1. Haven and Home says:

    Oh that is hard because I have always loved the first mirror but I am loving that chevron mirror! The good news is that either way you can’t go wrong!

  2. Alathia says:

    I like the chevron. It looks like seersucker, which is very southern.

  3. bluehydrangea says:

    Love your room and the chocolate brown. My dining room is brown and I love how the white and blue really stand out. The chevron mirror is great but my favorite is the first mirror. I love the texture, it reminds me of an oyster shell (for me that is a good thing).

  4. Sweet Nothings says:

    oh, i love the second mirror! and cant wait to see the window treatments!

  5. Mrs. Limestone says:

    I vote for the ruffle mirror. That would look fab against the chocolate.

    Since it takes me like 2 years to decide on something, I definitely don’t change with the seasons but it must be fun to visit someone who does 🙂

  6. pve design says:

    I say chevron!

  7. down and out chic says:

    wow, your room is an instant update from the old space. very sylish and i love the dark chocolate color. my vote if for the chevron mirror (and i really liked the plates, i didn’t think country at all!)

  8. Blueprint Bliss says:

    Such a fun space. The chevron mirror is great- but I have ALWAYS loved the ruffle one from ballard!!

  9. Laura Casey Interiors says:

    Can’t go wrong with either but I am going to pick the chevron. love the wall color.

  10. Magchunk says:

    I like the chevron. And LOVE those blue chairs. Where are they from?

  11. One Life says:

    I totally sympathize with you. Since moving into my home, we have painted, one, two, three….lost count of how many times! I tend to also want to paint as the seasons change, but in lieu of not driving my husband crazy, I just change out the accessories.

    Oh, and I vote for the ruffled mirror. Absolutely gorgeous!

  12. Lindsey Ivory says:

    I am exactly the same…I have an entire closet filled with items that I change out each season! Since I am not very big on holiday decorations (with the exception of Christmas, of course!) I think it’s completely acceptable to change out all accessories a couple times a year (at least this is how I justify it for myself!). I have to vote for the ruffled mirror…but they would both look great. Love the room!

  13. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    I think switching a few things out for different seasons is a design-junkie REQUIREMENT!

  14. LindsB says:

    I love the brown in that room, and now that the fireplace is white too, it is beautiful.

    Also, that chevron mirror is so pretty, you have to get it! or maybe you could get a plain one and paint the pattern on it like in your other post with all those ideas.

    And I think I change my decor more than just with the season, it seems something is always getting tweeked haha.

    I cant wait to see the curtains- love them!

  15. laurenfromtexas says:

    I love those blue chairs. LOOOOOVVVEEEE.

    And I am going to have to be the oddball and say I love the ruffle mirror – it’s unlike anything I’ve seen! But the other one is great too. The room looks awesome!

  16. Under a Green Roof says:

    I love that chevron mirror, but I don’t think you can go wrong there, both great choices. I love your room!

  17. mrosev14 says:

    The ruffle mirror makes me swoon! Good luck on your fabric choices. 🙂 Your living room is amazing.

  18. Centsational Girl says:

    Oh, I swoon at your lamp and blue chairs. LOVE THEM ! And I think both mirrors are fabulous. The ruffled is more feminine for sure, but the second choice has a great vibe. Tough choice !

  19. Pink Wallpaper says:

    i love the first mirror!! can’t wait to see how your window treatments turn out…at my parent’s clubhouse, the designer did similiar window treatments but at the bottom, she bordered the sheer w/ burlap…it looks awesome! i have a pic if you want to see it.

  20. Lauren says:

    these’ll be great changes for summer!!! LOVE both mirrors so i’m totally no help there! xoxoxo

  21. paula says:

    Love the space. That chevron mirror is quite stunning.would look lovely with the chocolate brown.

  22. High-Heeled Foot in the door says:

    Ah thanks for all the help ladies! Decisions are the worst. I can make them for other people day in and out, but when it comes to me it’s hard.

    Originally I was so going for the ruffle one, but I think if I put it above the fireplace I’m still going to think something is missing on the sides and I’m not sure what I could put there that wouldn’t distract from the ruffles.

    I already have a plan if I get the chevron one so that is the way I’m leaning. I think I’ll end up going with the Chevron and then hopefully all sneaking in the ruffle one at a later date in a different room in the house. win, win!

  23. Yansy says:

    I love your living room just as is but can’t wait to see pics of the new transformation. I must say that I love your blog and follow it daily although I’m new to blogging. Good Luck

  24. becolorful says:

    Don’t you wish you could have both mirrors? I know, sick and twisted, but the ruffle does have a lighter summer feel for me and the chevron mirror could be for other times of the year. I totally get the seasonal decorating – if only I had a bigger place to store stuff that I still want but is out of season. I could also relate to the decorator’s insomnia. I’ve been a victim more times than I can count. Whatever you choose, it’s going to look amazing!

  25. rightbank says:

    You are not crazy at all! I'm forever changing and rearranging around our house. I laughed when you apologized to your hubs for moving the plates – I'm always doing that! I make mine move something – swearing it's the last time – then a few weeks later, "oh, honey . . . "

  26. tarheel says:

    Oh! I just saw this- I have always loved that ruffle mirror. I love how it looks like coral and the mirror is antiqued. It would look beautiful against your brown walls.

  27. HappyMedium says:

    That ruffled mirror is so unique, so eye-catching–I would go for it!

  28. Kim Gail says:

    Everything is looking so classy and elegant.!! That ruffled mirror is absolutely stunning. Overall home improvement is fantastic.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
