Today is THE Day!!!

Debra over at Common Ground is featuring my living room TODAY for her Design Challenge Segment!  I have had a love/hate relationship with our formal living room for several years now.  I love the possibilities but not so much the current state.  I sent Debra several photos and a dissertation of my hopes and dreams for this room.  She is putting it all out there today for her readers to leave their thoughts, suggestions and ideas on how I can transform my living room into the room I've been dreaming about!  I can't wait to read what everyone has to say!  I hope you'll pop on over to Common Ground and share your thoughts too!  Just click on the lovely button below... and please spread the word!!!

A special thanks to Debra for choosing my room to feature today, and for the great design advice she has already shared!  I can't believe how absolutely generous Debra is being with her time and energy in helping fellow bloggers like me get new ideas for their challenging spaces.  Bless you, Debra!

Best Wishes and Blessings,


  1. Hi Amanda, I'm so happy to do this! You have such a great space and lovely pieces, I'm excited to see what kind of ideas and inspiration come together!

  2. You need a table by the tv cabinet and above the cabinet and table add shelves and put basket with the stuff from your secretary in it and put a ladder so you can get to the shelves. Have the wingbacks and the sette face each other in frount of the fireplace.
    For the wingbacks look at the sette and take a color from it. You need some heavy drapes you can leave the sheers. A lamp on the table and one inbetween the wingbacks. Just have fun do what you think will look good to you and your family.


Thank you so much for your sweet notes! I love hearing from you!
