Our Family Room…

 

Good evening!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween. We sure did. We went to my sister-in-laws house and Dusty went treating with his cousins. We had a blast. The Holidays are so much fun when you have kids to share them with. What a blessing.

I wanted to show you our family room that is adjacent to the kitchen.  Yes, I am sorry there are some rooms I have not shared with you yet. Usually this room is full of toys and more toys but, I was able to store them away and put it together for a little shoot. I hope you enjoy it.

Those gorgeous Blue Book are from VintageWeave. I am going to to an amazing post on my friend Kathy soon.

I have decided to change things up a bit for the fall and winter months. I wanted to add some warmer tones to my all white background.  I have been itching and  searching for a new decor style and I haven’t figured out what direction I want to go yet. I am in the process of finding a new dinning room table. I have found the chairs though. For now, I love the white and natural brown tones mixed in with a little color.

On the farm table sits a vintage baby bath tub with dried hydrangeas.  I found the tub and hydrangeas from the sweet Debra Hall of Debra Hall Lifestyles. She has a great eye for unique and stylish items. If you haven’t already, you must visit her website.

I couldn’t decide weather I wanted the cloche on or off the base. My son ended up deciding for me, that is why some images have it off. He helped. I think a future photographer is in the making

The gorgeous antique grain sack pillows come from Kymberley Fraser of 3 Fine Grains a division of  A Beautiful Mess and date back to the mid 1850’s.  The stripped ones date back to the 1940’s.

I can not get enough of A Beautiful Mess Antiques, and not just because Kym, Karen, Marilyn, Victoria and Tina are my friends but, because the whole store is full of one-of-a-kind finds. The girls search high and low for amazing items. Each one of these women bring a great element to the store and a  fresh vibe.

We have built-ins around our T.V and I am trying to fill them all with the same color books. Might take awhile.

The oil painting’s are from A Beautiful Mess too and are from the early 1900’s. They are signed by Kavanaugh. I love to collect these. I admire the painting’s of women and children most of all.

My new/antique pantry boxes. They are perfect shade of blue and grey.

This basket came from the Santa Monica flea market a year ago and I store my son’s toys in it. I was frustrated because it sinks in a little in the middle and I couldn’t really put anything on it but, then I saw Brook Giannetti of Velvet & Linens recent post on how she added a cutting board to the top of her basket. GENIUS!

Voila!!

Have a wonderful fall day!!!

  13. I just started following your blog - love it. AND I was just inspired by your painted vintage pantry boxes...I have 2 round wooden (cheese?) boxes that I've been trying to figure out a use for. I think I'll paint them and use them in the pantry! Thank you for the idea ; )
