  5. Oh, that makes me smile. I like both the gussied up living room and your "minimalist" living room, too. I am so not a minimalist. Although I sure do relax in simpler environments.

    Back to look again!

  8. my favorite style of decorating is a highly eclectic mix of patterns.. just as you have done in your living room. I ordered a blue and white striped druhrie a few months ago. After seeing your room I am motivated to roll out that new rug.

  10. I love your living room! It is so inviting and colorful. I bet it is even better in person. ;-)

  11. The comparison of the two rooms brings a smile and makes me think of the title to the Dan Fogelberg album, "Twin Sons of Different Mothers."

  12. LOVE this! I'm not a minimalist. I've tried but it didn't work out for me. I always have to add just a little something more~I'm tired of seeing all these rooms that are all white or gray and lacking of color and, well, neat stuff!

    Pretty rooms here!

  14. Your living room is much prettier! It's warmer, more inviting, and more natural...in short, it looks more like a real living room. Your colors and the scale of your pieces just work so well together. And I love the new fabrics. Red? I'm trying to get my nerve up to buy a less traditional sofa with fun new fabric for Gene's living room. Haven't told him about it yet, though!
