so a few weeks ago i started a new series- a countdown of my favorite rooms. started with a countdown of foyers, the natural next stop seemed to be living rooms. so here they are- my favorite living rooms!

for those of you that follow the blog regularly, not many surprises here. most of these living rooms i’ve featured many times before because i love them and i always go back to them for inspiration.

i did challenge myself to go back and look at great living rooms of the past, and to more recent living rooms of today, however, when it came down to it, i went back to the ones i love.

there are some commonalities as i reviewed. i love a neutral living room with eclectic seating and furnishings, blue and white sprinkled in is a must, looks like i’m drawn to tradition furnishings with modern art and accents, love a blue room, lots of books are important, i enjoy a bit of red, and most certainly every room must be beautiful!

call me boring or call me consistent, all i can say is these are my favorite living rooms- the ones i love! enjoy!
