House Tour- Living Room

Today we will tour the living room....

This is the room where we spend most of our time watching tv, reading, blogging, napping, etc....
you know, living.....in the living room....

When planning this room I wanted something that looked like grown-ups lived in the house (even though they don't) but was still warm and inviting. 

Please note the dog located in his usual position...

Room info
  • Wall color: Macademia (Sherwin Williams)
  • Furniture: Ethan Allen Retreat sofa, love seat, and chair
    • (This was before I knew furniture shouldn't be so matchy-matchy but matchy-matchy it is. I kind of like matchy in certain rooms...like this one...because I have no choice...)
  • Shelves: JCPenney Leaning Shelf
  • Coffee table and end table: American Furniture
  • Rug: Pottery Barn rug bought at Tuesday Morning for over half off (BONUS!)
  • Accessories on shelves: thrift stores, Gordman's, gifts, TJMaxx, Marshall's
This is one room that I am pretty much done with.  Weird, right?

We do eventually plan to add built-in shelves and a fancy-schmancy mantle but that is a ways away (pesky student loans) and I am always changing out pillows and accessories on the shelves but overall...done...sort of...

What are your opinions on matchy-matchy furniture?
