1929 Prairie Home - Living Room Reveal

Happy Thanksgiving, Lavendears!!!

We have had an amazing Thanksgiving - 
I hope you have as well.

After eating lots of everything, 
I decided to just sit for a while and edit pictures 
of our Living Room to share with you today.  

Everything is all ready, 
so come on in and make yourself at home.  
I hope you enjoy our little tour.

 This 24' x 15' room has solid oak flooring 
 framed with wide mahogany baseboards.

The ceiling is also framed with 
solid mahogany crown molding.

With 9.5 foot ceilings and large windows, 
this room is beautifully lit by warm, lovely, natural light.

An original  1920's Batchelder tile fireplace 
visible from the front door makes a classy 
statement for the entire house.  
I think it is my very favorite feature.
To learn more about Batchelder, check
out my post, here

We have classic "built-ins" all throughout the house.
This bookshelf features original mahogany shelves and trim.

 This is the view from one of our sofas.

 The tile displays such an array of gorgeous color.

Isn't this detail magnificent?

Our family has spent so many hours watching movies, homeschooling, playing music, building legos, and 
snuggling in this room.  I will miss it so.

Thanks for stopping by our Living Room today.  
We have loved having you here!


Parties I Will Be Linking To:


  1. Ellie, Your living room is lovely and what a beautiful fireplace. Thanks for linking to the Open House party.

  2. A beautiful room...warm and inviting. Are you moving? I'm a new follower so please forgive me if I've missed any news re: your home.


  3. Hi, Pat. Thanks for becoming a follower! I am always so honored when anyone wants to come to follow my crazy little life and thoughts. In answer to your question, yes, we will be listing our house in the spring. I have lived in this house for almost 13 years and am sad to go, but my husband's job changed and the distance is a little too much for him. So, it's off to a new adventure soon.


I LOVE your ideas and comments. Thanks for taking the time :)
