The Living Room

On to the first room in the house on this lovely home tour. The living room was grand and bland.
Not an ounce of color on the walls and I partially understand their fear.  It is a huge room and a huge paint job.  You must get the color right.

The view out the windows and doors was beautiful.  I STALKED this window from the second I laid eyes on it!!!
 The two story living room was beautiful.  However, not beautiful is this disaster of a chandelier.  I must admit it's still in the house.  We have yet to tackle that LARGE of a disaster. 
 Under the staircase was this little "nook." I love it.  And I still have big plans for it someday in the future.  And please excuse our random placement of furniture in all of these pictures.  Move in day was a CIRCUS!!
 This is basically the opposite view of the living room.  I was standing right in front of my favorite window.
 And the last before picture is that of the fireplace. How sad is this fireplace???

Here are some updated photos of our living room
 We went with a bold blue-grey color.  The room needed color and I am thrilled with how the color turned out. 
We still have yet to find our "dream sofa."  But the old one has worked fine.  I truly love the Pottery Barn furniture that we got.  I love the contrast of the blue and black.
 The wall of the fireplace we decided to leave white.  The fireplace is still a work in progress.  We can't take the black tile and gold fixtures, but improvements cost $$$ and that one will take a LARGE chunk as we all know :)
I already want to change this room up big time.  I want to make a sitting area in front of the fireplace.  We originally needed this secondary eating area because our kitchen was MINI sized.  But with that upgrade this area can go.  I see this room getting a major renovation probably next summer.  :) whoops!!!

Here are some close ups of different areas in the living room :)

I would like to get a cute table for the entry area...
The bar next to the fireplace...and yes that is a leg lamp that stays out YEAR long :)
 Our map of Greece broken up
 Where I am typing from right now :)
 Our stairway...maybe my favorite part of the room
I hope you enjoy our living room!
