More Rooms from the 1990s

Remember I told you I'd post more pictures from that catalog of rooms from the 1990s? Here is the first of many room settings. Also remember that I'm photographing them because scanning that many photos is a lengthy process and some of the photos were huge - much bigger than the scanning surface.

Anyway, this is what was called American Country. Personally, I love American decorating. It encompasses so many cultures - American, English, French, West Coast Californian, Tropical, Southwest, Northwest, Formal, Elegant, Contemporary, Modern, Shabby, Romantic.......all of them! Even sloppy teenage decorating. ;-)

So here is the living room that I absolutely love because of the pink/red and yellow combination. It's my favorite color combo. Then you'll see the bedroom and dining room. I LOVE this style, but my favorite is still the living room from Pink Saturday.


This is my family room in another disarray! As hubs said today (as I was suggesting places and looking for a corner to put it in), "There aren't any more corners in the house to put it; you've got something in every one of them, Connie." It is currently holding just about anything and everything that doesn't have a place yet. I didn't have anywhere to put this trellis but behind the sofa. I plan on "doing something" with it but I'm a bit tired from nailing more holes in the wall today that I'll have to think on it a bit. I'm a tad dangerous with the hammer and screwdriver at this point, chickees!


  1. love the pictures in todays post..those are more my style...I think the only room with floral is the bedroom...:) have a wonderful sunday my chickadee....:)

  2. haha, no more corners left, that is something my dh would say, too.

    Can't wait to see what you do with the trellis :)

    Thanks for the nice comment on my page know how it goes, I never liked my name as a kid because no one else had it...then once I finally started liking my everyone is naming their kid it, ;)

    I like the FOxcroft exchange, that has a regalness to it, too...I think the area codes should have names, that would be cool.

    Bella :)

  3. I can always count on you to make my day!! Hope you are having a great Sunday, Theresa

  4. OK my sweet hubby started "re-doing" our shower and a week later there is still plastic on the walls. I sure do love him but his projects take him a bit. So glad you hired a friend to do yours. Soon you will be able to enjoy it all. Unless you find something else to do next. Have a great Sunday.

  5. Afternoon, Connieness! I adore those rooms! The yellow rose print on that sofa? I have a comforter and shams almost identical in my Grandma's Bedroom! Hope you're getting some rest this beautiful Sunday!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  6. all of the photos are beautiful. i love the assortment of colors!

    and for your information Miss Connie, teenagers by no means decorate sloppy. I have very good taste. I could show you a picture of my room, but my mother proably agrees with you. haha (:

  7. I love the photos of all the different styles of rooms. Yours is looking really good. I get the same way you do sweet Chickie gal, when I am tired, very dangerous so look out. hahaha Get some rest dear one. and have a great week.


  8. Hi Connie!
    I know it's tiring but soon you will be so happy with the finished product! It will be as rosey and pink as you would want it to be and a dream come true!
    hugs! karen....

  9. Oh Connie you have been so busy since I last stopped by.

  10. Oh no! I think my hubby said the exact same thing to me the other day. I love the photos you've been showing. Even though those rooms are from the 90's I could still sit right down and be comfy!


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
