Bronze Decor Galore

Today I am going to share with you some pictures of my front "formal" living room. We just moved in this house the beginning of November so everything isn't quite finished yet, but I will show you what I have done so far.


As you walk in you will see my entry table with a vignette I have created. Kristen made me a beautiful arrangement so that takes center stage. I have added a topiary from Home Goods, A fleur di lis lamp from Kirkland's (my fav store) and two little decorative boxes. The items on the wall were all purchased at Kirkland's besides the holders for the pictures. I got them at Hobby Lobby. They are actually supposed to be plate holders but I decided to use them for something else. 

Here is our seating area. That is Walter laying on the ottoman :). The couches are from Mor Furniture. I purchased the front pillows at Kirklands. The burgundy ones my grandma & I made. We found a tutorial online on how to make a cover for an existing pillow.I got the fabric at Joann's I believe the designer is Liz Claiborne. 
The picture is a cafe style print from Kirklands & Candle sconces from there also. I have some changes in mind for this room. That will be coming soon.
I just got these curtains as a gift for Christmas from my mom. I really love them they are from yep you guessed it Kirklands! 
I added a tassel to my lamp, that was also made by Kristen check out her etsy store.


Here is a another vignette I have created. I added a topiary from Walmart. It's from there Better Homes & Gardens collection. A lamp from Kirkland's with a cord cover from Hobby Lobby, Two frames with pictures of Jackson from his newborn shots, a mosaic candle from Kohl's, a plaque that says There's No Place Like Home from Kirkland's, and I added a jeweled cross tassel that I made. Dont ya just love tassels! :)

 On the ledge above I added two finials from Hobby Lobby, some greenery and a initial frame that I made. I took inspiration from the beautiful frames Kristen makes and tried my hand at making one myself.  On the other side of this wall we have our electronics up top so I wanted to hide that from this side, so I added the greenery and now you cannot see it.
I added this round metal decor above our front door. I have had this for a couple years and love it! I believe I purchased it from Ross. 

Well, Thats it for now. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Stay tuned for my next post. I will show you what I have done in my kitchen. Have a great week!

What a bummer Kim to not have a Kirklands close. I'm sure my husband would like it more if it weren't so close to us lol! I have not been in a Tuesday Morning. I will have to go check it out there is one kinda close to me. Hope you find some fun new treasures.

Hi Allyson! Thanks for visiting me! : ) I see you are one of the lucky ones with a Ross and Kirklands. I always love the stuff I see people getting there. My "go to" store is Home Goods here but I haven't been in awhile. I do have a gift card, though, that is just crying out to be used! I love your tabletop vignettes! The lamps are great and I love the cord cover. I have a few of Kristen's creations, as well; she does such a great job on her frames and floral arrangements.

Your home is beautiful and reminds me of Melissa's gorgeous home. So nice to visit with you.

Beautifully done Allyson! We don't have a Kirkland's around here but we do have Home Goods and Kohl's and I think both are fabulous!

It looks like we have a similar style in decorating and I look forward to getting to know you a whole lot better!

Many Blessings,
Melissa
