Restaged Living Room~

Hi Everybody!!! I had a busy weekend. But I promised you all photos of the living room...so here they are.


We repainted this room...the name of the color is Oatmeal, but I'm not sure what brand it is...and I can't find the can...I'll look and hopefully I'll be able to get the correct brand to you all later. I really like this color. It's darker than what we had on the walls before, but it is still neutral and it lends itself well to our decor.



And after my rant the other day about not removing all family photos when you stage your home, I had a commenter who mentioned that you never know who is going to see your home, and having photos of your kids on the wall may not be the safest thing to do. Well, when it comes to my kids, I may be just a little overprotective. So I took her comment to heart. I traded out the photos of my kids for some great botanical/bird prints I found on Vintagemoth! They look very Ballard-ish, and now the worry-wart in me doesn't have to worry.


And remember these little beauties from my trip to Brimfield? I borrowed this idea from those awesome sisters Kari & Kijsa and hung them on the wall above my piano.


Have a great day~

Hi Wendy! Oh, I'm loving the looks of your living room! The wall color is beautiful! I love the wall with the bird pictures and that table - it's so lovely! Love your vignette on the top. That's probably a smart thing to do about removing your children's pix. There are a lot of crazies out there.
Be a sweetie,

It looks just perfect! I never would have thought about what kind of people might be looking at the family photos, but it does make sense to be careful. And the bird pics look gorgeous!

When we were looking for a house, if we went in one and it was a mess I was not interested at all. I have great vision, HOWEVER, allt he clutter wouldn't let me visualize!

I know that you will sell yours so FAST! It looks beautiful!!

We painted 2 houses (living and dining rooms) with that color. I'm 99% sure it's Eddie Bauer Oatmeal. I ADORE that color. Warm and sophisticated at the same time.
