Show us your life: Our FAMILY room

Kelly at Kelly’s Korner blog is hosting a “show us your life” link-up again and I thought I’d participate to try and get some posts in about something other than baby stuff.   This week it’s a “Show Us Where You Live: Living Room” tour and if you want to find some inspiration for your own living room, you can see all of the other links on Kelly’s blog.  She did this last year too, but I missed the tour, so I’m excited to participate this year. :) 
Without further adieu, here is our family room:  
Here it is right before we moved in.  The first picture is walking into family room (which is open to the breakfast nook) and the second one is from the breakfast nook.

Here it is now… walking into the room from the front of the house (you can see the edge of our kitchen island.)  I love the drapes (Cameron Cotton drape from Pottery Barn) – I will be so sad if we have to leave these here when we move out of this house.

Since I took this picture below, I’ve changed the mantle a bit, so I posted another picture below that of what the mantle looks like now…

The last picture is a little dark, and you’ll have to excuse College GameDay on the TV (we are big college football fans in this house, and I couldn’t ask Matt to miss any of it just so I could take a picture!)

So that’s our family room (sidenote: do you call it your family room or living room?) – thanks for looking!
Pin It!

Lovin that room.... great job decorating. My husband is a huge football guy too, so I am sure I would have had the same case as you.

BIG congrats on the upcoming baby girl! Super exciting... I just had baby #3 (a girl). I know everyone says they grow fast but oh how it is true. Enjoy every moment and stage, they whiz past everything before you know it!

Beautiful! I have a slight Pottery Barn addiction myself so of course I love your decor!

What color paint did you use on the walls? I love it!
