Parade of Homes:Living Room


Hello! Thank you for stopping by!

What an awesome and inspiring Parade of homes I've been browsing through this week! There is so much talent in this community!

I'm throwing in my two cents, sharing our living room, it's where my family spends most of our time. It's constantly changing and evolving...but I'm really happy with it right now, I hope you enjoy!

You'll see a lot of influnce of the sea around my home, it's where I long to be...

I'm in love with the color turquoise, I love to use it throughout the living room and kitchen

Spray paint is a close personal friend of mine, and a lot of furniture and accessories that I use have a coat or two of it on....this side table received a fresh coat of glossy white just last week (formerly black, grey before that)

The coffee table
I love having a round table, this grouping stays pretty much centered, and Logan is able to have his cars all around...the 'race track' is always open!
The sofa: the pillows never actaully stay like this, but being the only girl in the house...I gotta have my pillows!

This dresser has become one of my favorite pieces of furniture, it offers a lot of storage and acts as an end table

I hope you have enjoyed our Living Room tour, I hope to share some more projects on how I created some of the details next week, I hope you join me!
Again, thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you're inspired! Thank you Poppies at Play for hosting!

  2. Your living room is gorgeous. Love all the accessories and your colors. Beautiful. Hugs, Marty

  3. I LOVE it!! I love all the turquoise and the patterns of the pillows! I've never been close to the sea, but I am really drawn to decor that relates to it!! So relaxing! I am so glad you linked!!


  4. Michelle, I love this room. Great layout and love all the colors. Great picture arrangement over the sofa. Glad you shared your room with us.


  5. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the colors you used, and the patterns of the pillows as well. Very nice :)



  6. Hi Michelle,
    What a lovely clean and modern room. I love that turquoise too, and am busy right now incorporating it in our masterbath, cause I did it in my bedroom already. I love it with chocolate brown and pea green and white.
    You did a great job accessorizing your room as well. Just love it, it is all gorgeous.
    thanks for sharing it with us hon,
    Very very nice
    Blessings, Nellie

  7. Ahhh..I love taking a peek into other peoples homes...yours is beautiful! I love the combo of pillows on the couch!!! Have a fabulous weekend!

  8. Michelle,
    I just love your living room! It has such a perfect "sea" touch! I would so enjoy curing up on your huge couch with a good book!
    Beautiful photos!

  9. Your room is beautiul! I love all the colorul touches!

  10. Michelle you have some mad talent with color and pulling a room together! I loved everything about it! You take awesome photos too, something I am learning as I go her in blogland! Thanks for sharing, have a great weekend!

  11. Great Living Room! I love how you've used color in so many unsuspecting places- like the ribbon around the lid of the woven box. I need some serious lessons in adding color. But I'm making some yellow sofa pillows today, so that's a start!

    Thanks for sharing!

  12. Your room is beautiful. You have a real knack for the "extra" touches. I particularly like your picture collage over the sofa (may have to steal that idea!). Thanks for sharing your room.

  13. Beautiful! Especially love that big round coffee table - what a gorgeous classic. And please tell me you emptied the drawers in that end table and they aren't always empty! Because that much de-cluttering would completely astound me.
    Best wishes ... Cass

  14. I love your pops of color in this room! And I really like the picture arrangement above the couch! Seems like a very comfortable, family friendly room.

  15. This room is just perfection! From the pillows to the bowl of candles and things from the sea. Love it!

  16. Michelle, I absolutely love your sense of style and design. The pillows and the sea theme makes your space so unique and beautiful. Hope you get a chance to visit me at

  17. I love the blue and green with the pops of orange. The whole room looks so inviting and beautiful.

  18. What a beautiful living room! I love the turquise accents!

  19. What a fabulous room!! I adore the big glass bottles!

  20. Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your lovely comment.

    Your living room looks great, that floral sculpture on top of your dresser is fab!

  21. Beautiful! Your room is elegant & comfortable at the same time. Love all the accents and textures! Have a great week!

  22. LOVE this room, looks like a magazine cover!

  23. I love it...of course I also have many sea items in my home, and my accent color is seafoam/turquoise too! So, of course I love your home.

  24. Michelle You always amaze me. Your living room is gorgeous. I love all the color. You have done a fabulous job and have a wonderful eye for decor. Thanks so much for stopping by and joining the Sunday Showcase Party! I greatly appreciate it. Hope you have a wonderful week. Hope to see you again next Sunday! ~ Stephanie Lynn

  25. Love how you played with colors! And all the beachy accents I of course adore!!
