Living Rooms

I've come up with some living rooms while searching for ideas for a new sofa. Just some thoughts today.

Slipcovers are fine and I love them but I'm wanting a formal, classical look, which my living room is right now. I'll always love the classical look.

I'm really in a dilemma deciding on loose back cushions or tight tucked back.

I love this arrangement of a living room but mine isn't conducive to this layout. It is so much easier to converse with people instead of having everything facing a television. I used to visit a woman that had 2 sofas and a recliner lined up almost side by side in her living room. By the time I left there my neck hurt so bad from trying to talk with her I never wanted to go back. She had every seat in that room directed towards the television. We don't have that problem since we don't have a TV but I sure wish people would take heed how tiresome that is and how bad an arrangement that is in a room.

This is a darling sofa but would that fabric last a long time for us is another question.

While charming and cute, I doubt hubs would like it in our living room. I don't think I'd go for it in there either. Too busy. I do kind of like it though.

A rest from all the sofas!

Egg photos seem to be in this year.

I'm not sure where one thing begins and ends in this room. But that much wallpaper would send me over the edge.

Cute cubbies for small things.

Aaaahhhh, sereneness. ;-)

Cute area on a back porch.

Lovin' this desk and the froufrou around it.

Oh, yeah, I could live with this in my backyard for sure.

I don't know where this coast line is but I've never seen so many pink flowers blooming anywhere.

A clean, crisp beautiful white entry.


  1. Love some, don't like others. That much different wallpaper in a (bed)room would give me a headache for sure lol

  2. If and when we get a new sofa, I'm going for a tight, tucked back. The loose cushions always get out of shape and end up being frustrating to deal with. Good luck!


  3. Hi Connie,
    Any fabric you choose can be sprayed with a stain guard so you don't have to worry about your fabric choice. Our couches are loose cushions and I like that, but my front room is very casual. If you are going for a formal look then I would purchase a tucked back. You have lovely taste so whatever you choose will be perfect for your life style.
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

  4. Oh my goodness, your blog is just gorgeous! I love all of the pink and took some time to tour your home and read your about me page. You sound like a fascinating woman and I have no doubt you are excellent company over a cup of tea. :)

    I found your blog via Rose Chintz Cottage via another blog. I am your newest follower and look forward to more of your posts. Enjoy your week!

  5. Hi there! Do you use Twitter? I'd like to follow you if that would be ok. I'm undoubtedly enjoying your
    blog and look forward to new posts.

  6. Thanks Connie, I hope you are sleeping now. LOL. I was up late too. My dear friend coming has put me in a clean frenzy. I love to be motivated. HA!

    Love your dream pics. That wallpaper would give me insomnia. I really do like the couch you liked too. I do however, think you love a more traditional stylish French country look. Maybe Small flowers.

    Gotta run and get ready to go to Atlanta. Nearly three hours drive. My friend has no idea how far away we are from that airport. Asheville would have been a better pick but it is small and still 1 1/2 hours away. More costly too. I don't care, we can visit the Costco there and stock up on meat. Take coolers to keep it in.

    Happy hunting for that new couch.
    XO, Jeanne
