Show us where you live Friday - "Living Room" Edition


"Show us where you live Friday - Living Room Edition"
Hosted by Kelly over at   Kelly's Korner 

Thank you all for the lovely comments last week. It was so much fun peeking into everyone's kitchens and I can't wait to see the living rooms.

A few people had asked what the color of  stain on our cabinets is and it's Espresso.  It is a very dark brown and I have to admit not the easiest to keep clean with two small kids but I do love it and it's all through my house . 

Our living room is attached to the Kitchen area and I have to say it doesn't quite have the same "wow" factor that the kitchen delivers but it's comfortable.  We honestly don't spend a lot of time in here as the kids have a toy room and our basement is finished.


The main wall has great built-ins that we store games, books and movies in. It has a gas fireplace and a small TV that I primarily watch while I'm cooking in the kitchen.


The outside wall has these 4 great windows that provide lots of light during the day but also it's a gives me a great view of our backyard so I can see what the kids are doing if I'm not out there.  We have two large leather chairs that I love to curl up in and read for the whole afternoon.

On the inside wall we just have a very comfy sofa a great coffee and end tables by "Old Hippy Wood" and there's not much else to tell ya' !

Thanks for stopping by for a peek !!

Thank you for the nice comment :). I love the built-ins! You are so lucky to have them. They give the room so much character. I wish that I had something similar in my formal living room which we are going to turn into a library/club room (so I didn't post any pics), but they are so expensive to have built. I will probably end up buying an bunching bookcase unit instead. Your living room is very inviting. Thank you for sharing!

PS - I love Calgary. The company that I work for has an office downtown. I make it up there a couple times a year. I recently resigned to be at SAHM (just like you). my last day is May 22nd... sooo no more trips to Calgary :(
