Now I usually crop myself so you don't get a whole lot of background, but today I thought I'd give you a little tour of this particular corner of my living room. So if you just follow me, we'll start our tour on the left side of the picture.
On the left is an old theater chair I found at an antique store. Sorry it got kingd of cut off in the pic. It's made of wood and you'd be surprised how comfortable it is. The seat also flips up and has a nifty rack wear men could slide their hats on and store them.
Of course you already know about me lovely free tree. Notice how there are no gifts under there yet? Kimberly at Fab Finds Under $50 puts me to shame with all her gifts overflowing her Christmas tree skirt ;-)
The clock on top is one I've had for years. Found at Ikea and bought because it reminded me of classic school clocks. Now I will say that it wasn't really my choice to put the clock there, but Will really wanted it there and sometimes, you just have to let him contribute to the decoration.
Behind me is the fireplace. In case you are wondering why I would put the tree right in front of the fireplace... well there aren't many choices and we will never use the fireplace anyways. It's never cold enough here to use it. Now I do plan to hang the Xmas stockings up on the mantle, but I haven't bought stocking holders yet. Will wanted his by the tree so he just laid under the tree for now. I made Will's stocking for him last year. I'm now working on mine so it'll match his.
On the mantle are numerous pics of family and friends. The one right behind me is an engagement photo of Will and me. My dear friend, Karen took our engagement pics.
Below the mantle are 1950's drive-in movie speakers. I cut a good deal on them at an antique store. They still work too. Of course you won't be getting any kind of surround sound, but it's fun to have.
Basically, my style is is contemporary meets retro. I love the 1950's nostalgia, but mixed with sleek and cool contemporary furnishings.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this little tour. Thank you for visiting my little corner of the world!
