Monday at My Home

Happy Monday Luvs! I hope your weekend was fun filled with candy galore!

Here's what's happening in our home.....

The overstock cowhide rug came and I am crazy for it! Our "formal" living room has really become the fun funky place I have always known it could be. Probably the next thing that I will be on the hunt for is 2 gorgeous lamps for the top of the piano. What do you think of this space? I am always open to opinions!

Thanks sis!

Fantastic! SO fun. Love the curtains in the adjoining room, too. Funky lamps would be great on the piano. What a great room.

nice rug! i've always wanted a cowhide...don't know where i would put it, but i definitely want one! it looks lovely in your room:)

Brandi said...

That really makes the room! The only thing I would change is the bookshelf, it would look nice with a little less stuff on it, maybe paint or wallpaper the back a color liven up the dark wood a bit? I wish I had a formal living room! Looks great!

Love the rug!! I found a source yesterday for a cowhide rug...and have made up my mind to order it...it is a white/light brown color and can't wait to see it in my booth!! Take care, Caroline

Maddy said...

I think lamps sound perfect for the piano!

Love your room, as always.

Megan {Honey We're Home} said...

Fun and funky for sure! I like how you tied one of the pillows in with the drapes in the adjoining room. Did you make the yellow chevron pillow? Looks like some fabric I just found:) I'm curious where your previous rug ended up?!

Tatiana said...

beautiful! I really like your curtains, too :-)
And how lovely is your love pillow! Your sis really must love you :-)

Ashley said...

I absolutely adore your little green sofa and I see we have the same bedspread :) Have a fabulous week hun xoxoxo

That is so sweet of your sister! Love the new rug and especially with that coffee table. The whole space is so fun! Hope you had a great halloween weekend Leah! Hope Evelette had fun too. : )

Megan said...

Gotta love that rug! It fits that space perfectly. I agree about finding some super fun lamps. I can't wait to see what you find.

emily said...

That rug is great -- that whole room is just fab! And love the pillow your sister made!

Anna said...

It all just looks so great honey..Love the rug and Love your love pillow...the only thing I would suggest is try placing the rug at an angle...diamond shape...did this at my sisters place and it looked a million times better. XOXO

Leah said...

Anna and Brandi
I LOVE your ideas and will try them asap!

Thanks my Luvs!

Beau lifestyle said...

I agree on Brandi about the bookshelf.
Like your idea to place 2 lamps on the piano.
Other things I love about your house are the green sofa, colourfull curtains, chic zigzagpillows, cowhiderug and your bedspread.
Could be nice to see a cute bartray next to the bookshelf gives a welcome feel to guests.
or 2 DIY upholstered armchairs and place them where you stood to take the picture.
Whish I had such a sweet sister!

Carpe Diem said...

I love the rug..I've been thinking of buying one via overstock. Is yours real cowhide or "faux"?
