Show Us Your Life -- Living Rooms

I am so excited that Kelly's Korner's Show Us Your Life is back. I totally didn't realize this until today, or else I would have participated sooner. This week we are showing our living rooms. I posted pics of my living room a while back, but wanted to share what it looks like as of this very moment (well after a little bit of straightening up...ha!).

I live in an apartment, so it's pretty small compared to a lot of living rooms on here, but it is a pretty decent sized living room for apartments.


This is the love seat, coffee table and entertainment center (which my boyfriend thinks is huge, but I love being able to display the things I love). Wish I had a slightly bigger tv, but I will someday! The lamps I got at Pier 1. I think they add a little modern to my traditional style with their silver curvy bases. Plus I loved the red lamp shades...which is why I bought them.


This is the sofa, and a peak into the kitchen (which I assume will be another week). I got the pillows at Marshalls. They are down-filled pillows, and I got them both for $20 total! You can also see the beginnings of my photo collage on the wall. I just started that project this weekend. I am not sure what other photos I will include, but so far at the top are handprints of my niece and nephew, photos of my 2 nieces and 1 nephew, and then a pic of my boyfriend and I and a pic of my pup Abby.

This is my fireplace wall. I just loving having a fireplace, but I have never used it! I just like decorating a mantal. The little mini-stove is an electric heater. I do use that a lot in the winter, but I am not sure how to build a fire, and my boyfriend and dad don't want me trying, so it just looks pretty!

This is a DVD cabinet that my Grandfather built for me when I had my first home. As you can see, it's pretty filled up! I love having pictures of my family around. The pic on the left is of me and my boyfriend and the one on the right is of my entire family (including Grandparents!). This was taken at my niece's baptism at the church. I am so grateful that we could all get together for a picture.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed my home. I haven't had a chance to decorate for Fall yet, so I'll have to post an update once I get around to that (hopefully before Fall is over!)


  1. I love pictures too and love displaying them. I love your living room! The lamps with the red shades are super cute. I really like your pillows and the mirror above your mantle is great!

  2. wow that is a good sized room for an apartment! and a fireplace too? awesome! great job girl! xoxo
