SUYL - Living Rooms

I'm linking up with Kelly's Korner today for SUYL Home Tours.  Today is living rooms.
We really don't use our living room much.  We have a loft upstairs where we do most of our hanging out/TV watching.  I'm finding it hard to decorate, also, because there's only 2 walls, and one is mostly window.

Looking in from the dining room. I'd love to paint that wall but it continues up the stairs and is 2 stories tall, and our ladder isn't tall enough. Also, I have a cedar chest I'm thinking about putting under those windows and decorating it with books, vases and candles.

I've tried to add spalshes of color wherever I can.

Looking in from the hall.

My reading chair.

Toys and our old-fashioned TV (the good one is upstairs).

I love this candle holder and that's a great spot for it.

We used to have the couch and chair reversed,
but once we hung curtains we decided it looked better
 the other way.

I love all the different colored pillows on the couch. It just make it look so cozy!

And just letting you know I'm stopping by from Kelly's Korner!

We have an old fashioned TV too. We tend to watch TV programs online most of the time!

I like your splashes of colour!

LOL, our good TV is upstairs too! Our living room is the relm of the two 3-year-old boys and their toys, so as they get older, we'll end up redecorating the room and making it our family TV room. We like to watch TV in the evening as a family - America's Got Talent and MasterChef are the current favorites. But the boys are in bed at that time and we're just watching with our older daughter, so we don't need as much space
