The Living Room

Friday, March 15, 2013

I thought I would share the living room with you today.
This room has been furnished with family heirlooms and pieces collected over time.

Waverly fabrics were used for the window treatments, the camel back sofa, and also to reupholster Granny's chair which happens to be our kitty Jet's favorite spot to perch.

The wall clock and table lamp are pieces from my husband's family.
The corner shelf and side table were purchased at auction.

The Damask sofa was also purchased at auction a few years ago
and the pewter tea set and Duncan Phyfe table were consignment finds.

The cross stitched pillow was handmade for me by my sister
and this sofa happens to be Bella's favorite spot to nap.

The two-tier table was Granny's and though these particular figurines weren't hers, they do remind me of her, she loved occupied Japan figurines.

The piano is chock-full of family photos.

Antiques in the Living Room

I got my love for figurines from my Granny and there is one in this cabinet that is very dear to my heart.


This figurine is my favorite of all.

Since a very little girl I have admired this piece,
as it sat prominently in Granny's hutch for all my childhood years,
and she knew how much I adored it.

She wrote To Cindy, From Granny on the bottom
to ensure that one day it would be mine.

She knew how much

I'll cherish it forever!

Hope you enjoyed the tour of the living room.
To tour more of our home go here.


  1. I know that Waverly pattern so well....I had some valances made from that fabric about 20 years ago...when that fabric first came out...I have since gone away from that fabric style, but now it is coming back!! things come full circle....I so loved it! I also had 2 other complimentary fabrics to that design...i think I still have one pillow in that fabric....a flamestitch...

  2. That's a beautiful room. All the family pictures and granny items are sweet. I can see why your cats love it in is peaceful.

    We have a bedroom that I call the granny room. You've given me some good ideas to decorate.

  3. Love all your family treasures. The cats are sweet. I love cats and really need to go get me a kitten soon. I miss my cat so much. Have a terrific weekend,Olive

  4. Your living room is so beautiful, and I love that you have such wonderful family treasures and memories. They make every room totally special. Hugs, Marty

  5. Cindy, what a beautiful room! You have so many lovely accents; and the room has such a gracious feel. Very pretty!

  6. Such a pretty room! Cindy you have so many beautiful pieces and I love that some of them are family treasures!

  7. You are quite the collector. How nice that you can display it so lovely. Cute fur babies.

  8. Hi Cindy,
    wow, you have lots of pretty antiques, and so nice so many things were passed on thru the family. That is such a nice thing.......I lived with a lot of antiques growing up, so some of these look very familiar to me.
    Lovely southern traditional living room. Like that your damask sofa has one big cushion rather than two, that looks so much nicer.....Your window treatment is beautiful too. Beautiful fabrics and beautifully accessorized.
    Hope you have a nice weekend hon,
    Blessings, Nellie

  9. Beautiful room, but it's way too fancy for me... I'd break something for sure! (and if I didn't, my grandkids certainly would)

  10. I have always been a fan of Waverly fabrics as well! Your living room is lovely and your kitties are just precious! Hope you can stop by the enchanted oven.

  11. Cindy- What a beautiful, beautiful room. I love it-all the pieces are special and lovely. What a find that camel back sofa was! I love that porcelain piece that belonged to your grandmother. I wanted my gramma's old treadle sewing machine and was lucky to get it- xo Diana

  12. Cindy your home is so lovely and you have some beautiful treasures! :-)

  13. HI Cindy! Your living room is so beautiful! I love your Gone With the Wind lamp and that chair by the window - the fabric on it is gorgeous! You have so many pretty pieces of furniture and two cute little fuzzy faces.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  14. So pretty and classic! I love your antiques!

  15. Cindy, your living room is very pretty and and cozy with all the special family photos and comfortable looking furniture. Your granny and my granny must have been a lot alike. Mine was a collector of many things but her figurines were probably the largest collection she had. Her house contained many curio cabinets filled with pretty things. I was fortunate enough to receive some of her items before she passed away last May. Your favorite figurine is special and I am sure it means a lot to you that she wrote those words on the bottom. Your wood floors are beautiful and make me a little envious. We have carpet and tile but we are thinking about replacing the old carpet with wood. I like the shine and clean look of yours. Have a great weekend!

  16. Lovely room, thank you for inviting us in. Patty/BC

  17. I love that you cherish your grandmother's lovelies and honor them in their display. Love the piano and wall clock as well! Thanks so much for the tour of your beautiful living room.

  21. Thank you for the tour! I think it's wonderful that you honor your Granny by sharing your love for the things she shared with you.
    Have a lovely weekend!

  22. Hello Cindy~
    So warm and welcoming with touches of elegance. Love the wooden floors, and the nod to childhood with sweet dolls here and there. We have the same sofa, although ours is a deeper slate blue and does not have the skirt- instead you see the handsome Marlborough legs. Thanks for sharing your lovely living room. I am still not able to walk (rolling around in an office chair! ugh!) and having to do PT for my leg. I will try to get your package mailed this week, girlfriend!
    HAPPY St Patty's Day,

  23. Your living room is beautiful!

  25. This room is beautiful! Love your collection of furniture and sweet porcelain collectibles. What makes this all the more dear is that these things are treasures from your family. I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,

  26. You have a beautiful living-room. I love the shape of the side table next to your sofa. But my favourite "items" are the cats! They always know how to find the most comfortable spots!

  27. Your living room is beautiful. Using family pieces always fills a home with special memories.

  32. So beautiful, I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

  33. Hi Cindy! I am visiting from Time Travel Thursday and so enjoyed my tour of your living room. I believe that a room should be welcoming and inviting and yours is just that. I love that you have pieces of furniture that have not been "chalk painted". I love the look of old wood and hate to see so munch of it covered up. I am your newest follower. Please stop by Still Woods Farmhouse for a visit soon!

  34. Cindy, you have a beautiful home! Can't wait to see how you finish the secretary. I have one very similar, but it has been decoupaged. Not sure how to remove that. Thanks again for sharing your home with us.


Your visits make my day and so do your sweet comments. Thank You!
