Golden and Glowing

Hello Everyone!
Join me for a tour of the new and improved living room. *All of the photos enlarge when clicked* The damask drapes are from Bed, Bath & Beyond. The fabric is almost the same on the new pillows from JCPenney. The leather sofa is from Ashley Furniture. A warm glow streams in from the front windows. The area rug is from Lowes and the art is from Kirklands. Yes, I have a pillow obsession...:) This cage style lamp is from JCPenney. The room has a set of glass french doors.
Have a wonderful week!

Happy Monday, Melissa! This room is beyond gorgeous. The colors in your room are so warm and inviting and the way you have everything accessorized is so elegant. Your new curtains are very nice. I think I have the same ones, but in green. The curtains make your room feel so grand, but still maintains a cozy feel. I also love the way you have the curtains drawn back, beautiful!! Well, as always, thanks for the wonderful inspiration. =)

Have a great day! XOXO ~Liz

Richella said...

Your drapery panels are so pretty, Melissa! Just lovely, as are all your pillows. We all benefit from your pillow obsession--it's fun to see all the pretty ones you find. I wonder if Mr. Chestnut loves them, too?

The trey (is it trey or tray? I don't know!) ceiling in your room looks really pretty, too. I like the way you highlighted it with paint.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Such a pretty room, Melissa. Love the golden color.

Hi Melissa!
Your home is looking beautiful & ready for spring! It's always nice to freshen things up a bit when the seasons change, isn't it? I just did a bit of that this weekend, moving artwork and florals around and editing a few pieces out!
Have a beautiful week!
