My home tour / living room and bedroomThursday, January 19, 2012
Part two of the home tour continues with my living room and bedroom. Although my living room is just a few steps away from my "office" I did my best to make it feel like its own little space. The gold athena tray from Jayson Home and Garden is one of my favorite things in this room and seems to receive the most attention. I also love my little gallery wall.
Buying a white sofa made me a little nervous, but the slipcover is washable and Buddy knows three important commands.
1. Get off the couch / he is allowed everywhere, but I prefer that he not jump on the cushions after a walk
2. Get on your blanket / said so he will sit on his blanket on the sofa as opposed to my cushions
3. Take your treat to your bed / he now takes his treats directly to his bed to avoid getting crumbs everywhere
I may sound crazy, but these are Buddy's only "rules." Just ask anyone who knows me. He's a pampered little pup.

My bedroom was unfinished until September of last year and will feel truly complete once I have my Camden tufted headboard from Ballard Designs in slate grey or maybe a sandy/off white color. Oh, how I love to pine over these decisions. Let's not forget that it took 16 months and 5 days to paint my entry.

And there you have it. My home tour is complete. I want to thank everyone for the lovely blog posts, tweets, emails and comments. I am so flattered at the wonderful things that have been said about my home. Another thank you to Alaina for doing such a lovely job styling my home. Just look at how perfectly the jewelry is placed in that tray.
