Beautiful Living Rooms

This is proving to be quite the weekend around CDLV. We're getting new furniture, finishing up painting, and on top of all of that, it's Easter, and our 5-year anniversary! It's going to be a busy weekend to say the least. I picked up the most amazing piece yesterday, and I can't wait to show you all the progress that's being made around here. It's really stunning. It's been slow, *(I KNOW!)* But oh so worth it. These are changes I've wanted to make for a very long time, and finally - we're getting to them.

I won't see you again until Tuesday my friends, but I wanted to leave you with some of the beautiful living room inspiration I found for my files this week. Each is unique and different than the other, but they all offer a quite luxury and sophisticated simplicity that I'm really in love with. Follow along, and let me know if you agree:

What do you think?


  1. the last pic is my fav. I love the casualness of the room.
    Thanks for sharing

  2. Came over thanks to the lovely Donna (A Perfect Gray). And I just found myself browsing pictures of your lovely home. Not the same old, same old - I like it!

    Have a fun Easter weekend.

  5. What Mr. Urban above said...AND...Happy images!!

  6. Happy Anniversary to you and Scott!!

    Beautiful living rooms indeed! I could eat that first photo I love it so much!! The sofa frame, the chair frame and those little tables!! I've been looking for one little table like that for a "drink" table for a chair in the master.
    The room with the black mantle- yum! hummmm, that's an idea for you!! black instead of wall color would be good:) and the white room after it- so lovely!

    Safe travels and Happy Weekend and Easter!

  7. I'm drooling over the 4th picture. Fantastic, love the doors!


  8. I like the idea of small tables ie..the first photo...

    Happy holiday and anniversary!

  9. Love that first pic! Congrats on 5 years. Can't wait to see the photos of your redo. I am sure we will be in awe of your talent once again!

  10. Happy Anniversary! Is that third photo your LR? Love the fabrics and color mixes....

  11. Nothing is cozier than a pile of pillows. Gather pillows from around the room or house and arrange them on a sofa to add comfort and color. Choose pillows that have different patterns and color tones for a perfectly mismatched look.
