it’s all in the details

I’ve made some changes since we last toured the living room.  Simple, detail kind of changes, but they made all the difference in my opinion.

I have a couple more details to iron out before I call ‘er done.  I think I know what direction I want to go, but I’m hoping you will help me decide.

Thanks for helping me feather my nest.

Until next time,

After 17 years in an elementary classroom, Mrs. Hines retired from teaching to pursue her passions: decorating, writing and homemaking. While her formal education is in teaching, she discovered her talent for design at a young age and is a self-taught decorator. Mrs. Hines' DIY spirit has earned her appearances on the show Deals which airs on the Live Well Network. She continues to teach and inspire on her popular Lifestyle blog, Mrs. Hines' Class. Homemaking is Mrs. Hines' first love. So, when she isn't decorating or writing, you can find her at home watching television with Mr. Hines or trying to keep up with her teenaged daughter.

  1. I love the chair in this room can’t wait to see the changes.


  2. Umm . . . I vote for pop of color curtains and french gray for the ottoman and magazine shelf. But it’s already a LOVELY room! :)

  3. Thank you! what color do you suggest for the curtains?

  6. I also think the french gray for the ottoman and magazine shelf. Agree with pillowsalamode that blue in the print would really tie the room together nicely. Very lovely room!

  7. I really appreciate the feedback. Y’all are motivating me to go get the french gray paint.

  8. I vote for french grey and for yhe drapes: a beautiful blue and cream print???? XO, Pinky

  9. Thanks for your input Pinky! So far the french gray and curtains with blue are a unanimous opinion.

    I think it is unanimous…I like the idea of the French Gray of the accessories/furniture…and a beautiful geometric print in the blue and cream would be nice for the drapes….and maybe some pops of yellow in accessories….

  11. Shirley, if you say so, then I’m sold! Now I just need you to fly down and help me pick out fabric. ;)

  12. Your living room looks lovely so far. I agree that a pop of color by the windows would be great. I think french gray would look lovely for the furniture (or even a pop of color there?).

    Thanks so much for sharing at Romance on a dime!! I’m pinning this.

  13. I really appreciate the feedback. Sometimes you just need a fresh pair of eyes and some affirmation. My husband does not like to weigh in on my decorating decisions. And I’m super flattered that you find this room pin worthy! ;) Thanks for hosting!

  14. You go girl, Can’t wait to see the changes. xo Ginger

  15. Awww, thank you! Your encouragement just made my day.

  16. Hi Sharon! Very pretty decorating! I love the accent color and the table top that is white! That chair is heaven too! I look at Ballard Design all the time and I see lovely mirrors such as yours. I love it!! Have you ever considered doubling them up? You have great height there. I have always wanted to do that like Ballard, but I don’t have a place to do it :( They put them right on top of each other. So grand I think. Anyhow…either way your room looks great! :)


  17. Thank you, Julie. I need to pull out my Ballard catalog so I can see the double hung mirrors. I love the idea of taking advantage of the height above the mantel. I used to have a taller/longer mirror there, but when i found this round mirror, I had to have it. I love the look of round mirrors! Thanks for the tip!
