Welcome to our 1892 Colonial home in Maine! Come in and make yourself comfy but don't mind the dog hair. Our two pups like to help whenever the camera comes out.
We're lucky that several period features were retained over the years like the pressed tin ceilings and wood trim work.
I found the Capiz mirror and turquoise glass lamp at Pier One. They sell a different Capiz mirror now but they're still selling the same lamp.
Brewster fell in love the moment this comfy rug was unrolled. It's the L.L. Bean rectangular 5'x8' chenille rug in Blue Meadow. We live within an hour of their flagship store in Freeport, ME. I found it deeply discounted at their annual Home tent sale. It pulls together all the blue and green colors that I love.
The two club chairs with blue ticking stripe came from L.L. Bean too.
I love the textures on the love seat...
But it's not too precious to use everyday. Everything can be tossed in the wash!
A daisy chain quilt that I made last year was intended for the living room but it's still hanging out in my craft room. This reminds me that I need to bring it down to the love seat. :)
I participated in Kelly's Show Us Your House series in 2010. You can go here to see what my living room looked like back then. I also shared more details about paint colors and what not before.
