Show Us Your Life Home Tours - Living Room

 Today I am excited to link up to Kelly's Korner for her Show Us Your Life - Home Tours - Living Rooms.  I love looking at other peoples' homes and decorations.  I always feel like I need help decorating so feel free to leave any comments.   

And can I just add that my family room is never this clean.  I pulled the blankets off the couch, put all the toys away and picked up all the random stuff on the floor. ha!  So I know it looks boring with nothing on my coffee table but I had to clean it off when Ryan started walking and getting into everything and I haven't found anything baby friendly aka not breakable.  

 Collage of our family pictures on the opposing wall of the fireplace.  The kitchen is on the other side of this wall.  The pictures are from Ryan's first year photo shoot.  I need to update them to include Colton.  

 I love love love my canvas prints of my handsome little men.  I need to find something to go in this corner of the room.  It needs something but just can't put my finger on it.  I've thought about moving the sofa table over there but not sure what I would put in it's current spot.  

 I LOVE our couches and so happy we got them a couple years ago.  I think they might be our best big purchase in our house.  I also struggle with window treatments in this room.  We've lived in this house for six years and I still can't decide what to do with these windows.  I love the windows but they need something. 

 Ryan's pottery barn chair is a favorite.  He sits in it all the time.  

 Sofa table that sits next to the recliner.  

And lastly the toy corner. Trust me it never looks this picked up.  I straightened up just for you.  I don't even try to pick them up until the boys go to bed.  

Before I had kids I always said I didn't want my living room taken over by toys but you know what, it just happens, like overnight, ha!  We try to keep it to only part of the room but this is just real life right!

Hope you enjoyed the tour of our living room!  Stop by again to see more of our home.

I also cleaned up for all of you and in our last house the living room was the main toy area. It was insane! We just moved and so far we've been able to keep the living room toy free. But we've only lived here a month so I'm not holding my breath that this is a lasting thing :)

I truly love your space. Lots of room for seating and family fun.
My favorites are the Pottery Barn Kid's chair, wall paint color and the photos.
I'm really enjoying visiting the SUYL participants this week. I'm loading up with lots of decorating ideas.
Have a wonderful weekend!
