Where We Live

Kelly's Korner is hosting home tours again!

This week it's living rooms.

I have shown my living rooms recently, but some things have changed. We have just lived here about 7 weeks, so I know things will change some more!


This is our sitting room. We actually do a lot of sitting and chatting in this room.


My red couch and pink chair are from Ikea. And the bird houses and rooster are from Canton. (a flea market in TX) All my most unique finds are from Canton. I love it!


I am trying to figure out how to go again now that I have a baby...



It's hard to tell in this picture, but my curtains are white with red polka dots.

And this is where we spend the most time:

That's Marcus's chair on the right. It's begging for some throw pillows and a blanket on it, but I know they will end up on the floor. I guess I could have added some for the picture though.

This dresser was my grandmothers. It was originally white, then I painted it black and now red!




This view looks in to the dining and entry:



And this is the view I see the most:



I just noticed my topless husband on the right. Whoops. Well, just enjoy.


And this fire will have to do until it cools off a little!





Join the party and show us your living rooms too! I can't wait to steal some ideas from all you creative people!

I love your house! I started reading your blog with the last Tour of Homes and I still love it as much as I did the first time I laid eyes on it. Can you come and redo my house?

I love the cross wall that you can see from your living room. I have a cross collection going up my stairs. You have such a fun decorating style! Love it!

LOVE all of your Canton stuff! Canton is a bit of a challenge with kiddos. Take the stroller and enjoy! The stroller is nice to carry things in too ;)
I'm ready for it to cool down so I can go back. I LOVE Canton in the fall. Thanks for sharing!

Love your house! Where do you get those adorable red polka dotted and striped candles?

Brittany said...

I am glad to see I am not the only one that has to deal with a recliner when trying to decorate! Your home amazes me! I live in DFW and loved the write up on your previous home. Our house is currently on the market and I was encouraged by your story. Hopefully the right person will fall in love with my home, too. Love your style!

I love your home. I bet it is lots of fun. I might have to steal the cross picture idea. Did you paint it yourself? Love it

I just love your home and decorating style!!! I'm totally obsess, but I promise I'm no stalker :) My husband and I actually looked at your other house (highland park)several times and tried to buy it, but it didn't work out. I always call it the "Canton House". Your style just totally inspires me and just wanted to say Hi, even though we've never met!!! God Bless you and your family!! I look forward to seeing more wonderful inspirations from ya :)

Katy said...

Sweet Dina!!! Looking great girl! :)
