home tour

i just got back from a very relaxing weekend at home in illinois. my mom and i shopped, ate, decorated for christmas, and saw a movie. it was a great weekend!

my parents' home is absolutely beautiful. my mom has always been an incredible decorator and very creative, so it's only natural that she's made our home beautiful. she even did a guest post on my blog with some decorating tips. 

awesome wine bar from pottery barn
i've already got dibbs on this sucker once my parents are done with it!
lanterns as a centerpiece
great bookshelf with all sorts of goodies
see the spray painted chain on the left...
that's a great way to create a new look with an old chair!
living room 

bedroom #1
old window/door on the right with a picture hanging on it
antique bench with re-covered cushion
parent's room

love their bedspread
bedroom #2 - antique door in the corner
bedroom #3
keys from our old cottage framed
love this suitcase table
seriously, how amazing is this?
mantle decor
easy table centerpiece - wooden letters in a basket

being in my parent's house is basically like living inside of a pottery barn store, and i ain't complaining about that!

  1. WOW! My mom is nothing like this. Her 'decor' involves throwing a blanket over the couch!

  5. wow. very interesting. much different than other homes of people their age bracket..of course I don't know how old they are, but I am assuming late 40's into 50's. i was surprised at how she positioned the master bed right in the middle of the floor in front of the windows...looks really chic. I always get hives when I put furniture in front of a window but that really works AND I love that basket of letters...it would be fun to leave little messages from time to time...cute! tell your mom she did a great job!

  6. Love the decor! It does look like Pottery Barn. Very neat! I could use her in my dream home one day. LOL. What color is your parent's bedroom? It kinda looks like the color of our den. That is if it's an olive green/khaki.
