Our living room

Yes, that artwork is hiding our flat screen TV quite nicely thanks to my sister who screwed an L bracket on the top of it!! (such secret squirrels!)

Cushion from Homegoods and sheepskin rug that my husband wanted (love that!) from Ikea!

Cherry blossom artwork from Ikea, commemorating our time in Japan and reminding me I've yet to see the live Cherry Blossoms in Japan or here!!! (shame on me!)

Lucite coffee table from CB2, end table from goodwill ($4), koi fish from Okinawa, and lamp from Homegoods. Find out more about the artwork here.

That little bust is Beethoven and found him plus two others at goodwill all for a dollar!

My husband is the music man, 10 years of classical piano from his lovely piano teaching Mom and self taught on the guitar, did I mention he flies helicopters too?! Crazy talented.

Seahorse is from Okinawa as well as the bowl and Capiz shell balls.

Chairs from Target online, side table from Nate Berkus on HSN, and rug from Westelm.

Just had to show you the gorgeous purple roses hubs got me!



Chair from Pier One on clearance curtains from World Market, sweet German Shepherd "Montana" on loan from a dear friend!

I just love your home! One of my favorite that I have seen all year. Everything just goes together so well. Love the slipper chairs and the table. You did a great job! BTW, what type of camera do you take your photos with?

Regards,
Shannon

I've been combing through your archives, Maria, and just noticed the Klimt print you have on the wall in your living room above the eagle.

I have been fascinated with his work for years! The color, the texture, the intricacy, the repetition, the boldness. So fantastic.
