Our Home - Living Room/Breakfast Area

Awhile back, I had decided to do a series of posts on each room in our home...but until recently, I had forgotten about it! Oops. Haha. So...that being said, here's the first post of the series...featuring our living room, and breakfast area. :)

First of all, excuse the quality of the pictures...it was super bright and I couldn't seem to get the lighting right. Anyway, this is the view from the front door. Yeah, I know you are probably thinking, "is that tile all the way through the living room?" Yes. We decided to tile the living room, breakfast area, and kitchen simply because I hate carpet, and the tile is much less maintenance! And boy, has that been nice.

When we built our home, I decided that I wanted to have a mixture of patterns and styles in the colors orange, yellow, light turquoise, and some green. I haven't been able to quite put my finger on what my style is, but some of my friends call it "retro chic." It works. :)

I made the frames above the couch by picking out different patterned scrapbook paper and putting them in frames. Hard huh? ;)

I ordered all of my pillows (except the one you see on the left, it came from Bed, Bath & Beyond) on Etsy! I searched everywhere...but couldn't find anything that I wanted until I looked on Etsy.

Our coffee table and end tables came from my parents...because they got a new set and gave their old set to us. We've really enjoyed them.

This is the view from the breakfast area. We got the furniture that the tv is sitting on for Christmas from my parents. Love, love love it because it has so much storage space underneath!

My grandparents gave us this piece of furniture that I'm currently working on, and it's going to be our pantry when I'm finished. The whole thing looked like the bottom half a week ago. And it's not going to stay here...it will go in the laundry room when I'm finished with it.

And last but not least, here's the breakfast area! We eventually want to get a bigger table that seats more people, but this works for now. Oh and my mom made the centerpiece on the table. She's good at stuff like that. :)

So there ya go! My living room and breakfast area. I can't wait to show you the rest! I hope you all have a fabulous day!
