Home Tour - Our Living Room

I think it's been at least a year since I've linked up with Kelly's Korner's Show Us Your Life.  I love looking at everyone else's homes and meeting new blog friends - I've missed it!

She just started the Summer Tour of Homes.  I'm really excited to participate because we are moving out of our house in two weeks, and this way I will always have a way to remember what it looked like.  It is forcing me to take pictures before we tear down each room.

This week is living rooms!  Ours has made quite a bit of progress over the years.  I thought I had an old picture, but I can't seem to find one!  All the more reason to post some now, right?

I struggle with having a "style" in my home.  Hubby and I like modern things, and not too much clutter.  I love swirls and iron, and he loves big leather furniture and modern art.  We are a work in progress.  We fnally have our living room just like we want it, and, of course, it's time to move!

Here is the view of our living room from the kitchen.  I took these pictures this morning, and yes, Jaxson and Bandit are in most of them :)  I figure it's more authentic that way.

Here is the view as you walk into the room. 
Our entertainment console.  We shopped for over a year to find one that we liked.  Turns out, when we bought this huge TV, I didn't realize how hard it would be to find furniture that size.  We finally found one last year and I'm crazy about it.  Jaxson is too.  He loves to open and close the doors, and to put toys inside.

I love how open our floor plan is.  The bar level ledge behind the sofa is the perfect spot for barstools when we have people over.  We used to have cute things on our coffee table, that is, before we had a toddler ;)
I love these pillows.  They are poka dotted on the other side.  We bought them about a year ago, and they were a huge splurge.  They were way more than I would normally spend on pillows, and they weren't even on sale, but I'm glad we did.  I really like them and they have held up really well.
This is the sitting area on the other side of the living room.  I love these chairs.  They are super big and comfortable.  I think we may move them into the media room in the new house. 
And o course, Jaxson's toy box.  Very important items live in there!

I can't wait to see all of your living rooms!  I need inspiration!

I love your living room! It's nice that you'll have these picture for the future. You can look back and always remember where your family started! Such a cool idea, and it came at the perfect time!! :)
