|Choices galore ~ from frame, to fabric to that complete gorgeous look for your home!|
This is not to say that we don't appreciate any features of our home. Quite the opposite, I love the flow of the main floor, that we have enough space for our family to relax and entertain and even a few of the decor elements. A perfect example is the children's bath - a large space with a generous double sink vanity, perfect for my teen and pre-teen to share. I immediately fell in love with the retro tiled floor and have come to appreciate it even more now that we have changed the wall color and found pieces to match.
The gorgeous cherry doors throughout the house are certainly keepers.
However, the horrid bright brass fixtures and handles, they were welcome to go on day one! Don't judge - they are on the list!

I definitely appreciate that our home allows not only space for my husband and children to relax, but also an office for me to work and wax on all things that strike my fancy. Of course, the space in which I work is not what I would consider my #MomCave. The one room in my home that calls to me with peace and relaxation is the living room. With an expansive front window that looks out over our tree lined and peaceful neighborhood to the east, complete with a gorgeous cherry parquet seat and a view of the pool area through the dining room to the west, this room is hands down my favorite. Even with the lovely views, I still find myself distracted by the work still to be completed, the most pressing of which is replacing the carpet and selecting more formal furniture.
|One of my favorite features in the house!|
A peek online at the offerings from some of the local furniture stores I was familiar with, my mother's go to retailer and another for whom I had worked many moons ago left me discouraged. One of the retailers surprised me as despite that they offer designer services, it was difficult to browse their options online and I found the fabric selection rather weak. For a fleeting and ridiculous moment after we had first moved in, I had thought I would replace our tired living room suite with something in a vanilla or champagne color. A very brief and hysterical moment - then the pooch and I took a long look at each other, as I pondered, "Would he?" and his look assured me definitely, "He would!".
Although the furniture in our living room still has a good deal of life left in it and it incredibly comfortable with the fabulous inclusion of power recline technology, between man, child and pooch, it has seen better days and is certainly not the look I am craving for this room. Rather, the love seat will find a home in our family room and the sofa is destined to be further abused by the kids and their guests in our rec room. Microfiber was not meant for formal rooms. A budget friendly plan to be certain, the rotation of seating, yet brilliant in that it allows me to shop for beautiful and elegant pieces! Sneaky the way a Mom's mind works after far too much time grimacing at horrid brass door handles. I am quite certain I have gathered a good deal of stylish home decor karma after having been so patient.

With so many frames to select from, it is certainly difficult to narrow down to a favorite or even two, however I quickly fell in love with a few styles. Not so surprising as after taking the La-Z-Boy Style Finder quiz, I discovered my taste ran predominately Traditional, with a tendency toward Transitional and Contemporary, with a dash of Eclectic thrown in. It is no wonder that I am lost on my own in pulling a smart room together!
