Show us where you live Friday - "Living Room" Edition (Take 2)

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

I loved this tour last year and thought it would be fun to take part again sadly I haven't changed much since that time so I'm also recycling some of my pictures.

Our living room is attached to the Kitchen area to make one big great room with the kitchen and eating area.  We aren't in here a lot as we have a toy room and the basement is developed but it's a great space for entertaining lots of people which we do often. 

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 extra large leather chairs that I love to curl up in and read for the whole afternoon (which doesn't happen often now).

On the inside wall we just have a very comfy sofa & great coffee and end tables .
I'm afraid I'm not much of a decorator and tend to be fairly simple when it comes to that !

There's not much else to tell ya' !

Thanks for stopping by for a peek !!

LOVE your big windows. I wish we had more natural light in our living room (photographer over here). Our next house will be full of windows!
