My Quaint Little Living Room

I haven't done a White Wednesday post in awhile, so I thought I'd show you my living room.  

This room has been the greatest decorating challenge of all, since I'm really limited by the Wood Pellet stove (although I LOVE it) and the boxy shape of the room.

I also have three large windows and two over-sized doorways to contend with.

Very little wall space...so I MUST utilize every square inch.   :)
My sofa and love-seat were a pale blue which I didn't like, so I covered them in white slipcovers from Pottery Barn.  I then added those luscious bed quilts with the ruffles that Diane from Passionate for White tempted me with on her blog.
Ok... so I'm keeping it real here.  We all have a television and there's no need to pretend we don't or to hide it away (well...I would if I had something awesome to keep it in.) Here's my little 32" flat screen tv in all her glory.

I've tried to surround it with a little beauty....but there's still a huge elephant in the room. LOL
Hope you've enjoyed a little peek into my living area.  I'm linking up with Kathleen over at Faded Charm for White Wednesday.  Hope to see you there.karens sig 2

You have a lovely room. The soft looking textiles mix so well with your pretty accessories.

What a darling and cozy living room! I love everything:) I know what you mean about the t.v. I had ours in an armoire but then we upgraded at Xmas and there is no way I was going to devastate my hubby and hide it away. I did what you did and just surrounded it with pretties:)

Karen ~ Your room is just beautiful!!
I love the sofa covers and the tv doesn't look bad at all ~ At least it isn't ginormous like ours :)

I love your room, you have done a great job decorating it, the whites make it look more spacious although it looks cozy and inviting. Great job!
Enjoy your day!
