I’m kind of in decorating limbo over at my house and in the process of rearranging things, getting a few new rugs and just generally sprucing up after all the Christmas shenanigans. Which basically means my house is a total disaster and to escape it for the afternoon I headed to my mom’s house down the road. It was all clean and sunny in there so I grabbed my camera and thought I would give you a little tour of the living room and her take on lake house decor.
I love my mom’s sunny yellow walls and bright pops of color. You can see we have pretty similar style and tend to steal each other’s ideas.
Like her built-ins you’ll notice mine have the same tv in the corner, centered fireplace look (we also have the same architect), but I love how much color she incorporates in her shelf styling.
You’ll also notice about 100 bunnies on her shelves, she got one and they just started to multiply, like…
bunnies, hardy har har…
She also has a thing for mermaids.
She got her white couches after I got mine….and my Dad has been cursing them ever since, because they have 2 little dogs who somehow keep getting them completely filthy.
Here’s one of their cute pooches, the other is a grumpy old man and refused to model for me. Not that Lily here was really posing…I mean unless you count napping as posing.
There used to be a big totally cozy fluffy rug in here, but not pointing any fingers…
someone used it as a big litter box and my mom and I have been on a new rug hunt ever since.
I love the pops of green thru out the room too, like this comfy chair.
and these fun chairs, because everyone needs a little zebra print in their life.
My mom and I are both kind of accessory junkies and love hitting up the flea markets for unique finds.
Well, there you go – the grand tour! If you want to check out more of my mom’s home you can see her gorgeous piano room here or her guest room here.
Hopefully I’ll sort my house out soon and share some mind blowing awesome project that I have yet to dream up! Or not and I’ll just keep showing you the craziness of my real life :)
