Living Room Love


Welcome to my Sunday and welcome to my living room. Our day started off early by getting together with Derek's family for brunch and then saying our good-bye's after they were in town for the weekend. 


Messy, needed to be washed hair, next-to-no make up and barefoot. I'm okay with Sundays. I do have to point out the Astrology Fringe Kimono Top that I ordered from Hot Topic. I've been finding kimono's are the way I've been dealing with the summer heat/humidity when I'm not in work clothes. Cotton dress, kimono top and flats have been the uniform.


These photos were a random idea on Sunday (while I was sipping on wine) to show our new-to-us lamps that I have completed.

The tassels came with the lamps: BONUS!!! LOL!

I bought the pair of lamps and lamp shades at a consignment shop and DIY-ed the lamp shades. I wanted a richer (and more tacky) appearance to the lamps, so I added the black panne velvet fabric panels and black/gold trim. I have seen vintage velvet lampshades go for hundreds of dollars and well...I'm too thrifty to fork out that kind of dough. Haha! Though I love our mid century modern lamps, I wanted something to add more vintage Hollywood Regency to the living room and I'm very happy!

I really love home decor and seeing our home evolve with every new idea and/or treasure we find!

Thank you for reading!

  6. Totally envious of the beautiful decor you can have with those tall ceilings! I couldn't fit curtains or a lamp like that in my tinny cottage.
