A glimpse into our home

I figured since summer is quickly coming to an end (by the way, where the heck did it go???) I would show some pictures of our living room. I love to decorate and I always have, since I was a little girl. I am certainly not a professional decorator, in any way, shape or form, but I do decorate all on my own and will always do so. I tend decorate in a style that I like to call, Eclectically Polished (!) Ha! I know that sounds funny, but I call it that because I put together things that I love in a room and I believe that when I do that, things have a nice way of coming together. I get things when I see them and love them. I usually do not buy in sets. I like to mix and match. Our living room has been decorated with coastal accents (it is the only room in our home decorated like this) for the spring and summer. With the season change coming upon us I will be moving a few things around for fall, so I wanted to share these pictures while they still fit in with the season...
Love the stripes! The color is called Antique Silver. I thought them up and thankfully my mom was still in town and did the labor intensive painting because I was still recovering from surgeries. Thanks again Mom!
By the way, I would like to say, (I apologize in advance hunny, but you know how I feel about these) that the black leather couches came before my time and we will be updating sometime soon and moving these into his so-called "Man Room" by his request! ;)
I would also like to say that, yes, I know we live in Atlanta and we are not located on the coast. Please humor me and my coastal accent pieces because I find comfort in the beach, it makes me feel good and happy, and I hope you like it as well!

I painted every other starfish the same color as the stripes on the wall

My awesome sister Meghan, was in town for a couple of days last week and we had such a good time! Her birthday was yesterday, and she got a super cute dress while she was here to wear out to her birthday dinner! Happy Birthday Meg!!!! Come back soon doll!
