Our Home: Dining Room and Living Room

Here is our dining room!


Does it look familiar? That's because I showed you a preview of it with the kitchen post. The reason is, we don't have a "true" dining room We have our dining area between our kitchen and living rooms (give me a break, we live in a so cal condo. Space is limited!). So I'm going to show our dining room and living room since I missed living room week!

These adorable Crate & Barrel photo coasters sit on our dining table. They have a few wedding and engagement pictures in them.


Here's the living room that is right next to our "dining room" table.


The brown leather couches are from Plummers (a Southern Cali furniture store). The coffee table is from Crate & Barrel (Mix table). I hate our couch pillows. The blue ones are from Pottery Barn and look like total crap. NEVER buy the linen pillows from PB. They look horrid after a day. Any suggestions on where to buy new aqua-colored pillows?


This Nambe Bowl (another wedding present) sits on our coffee table. I love Nambe. Wish I could afford more of it!


This is our favorite place to sit and look out on the water.


Here is the view you see from that chair if your turn it to the window:


This is a brand new end table from Crate & Barrel (we got it yesterday!). The lamp is hand-blown glass. A wedding present from my God parents. I love the blue bowl on the bottom shelf. Reminds me of the ocean.


I really love these leaning shelves in the living room (again from Crate & Barrel). They hold fun wedding memories like our "unity sand" and our guest book. They also have my favorite books and some fun family photos. And lots of shells. You know I love shells.


Finally, the Mr's baby... the 61" DLP Flatscreen TV. A wedding present from my uncle. Also pictured, the PS3/Blu-Ray Player, DVR, speakers, stereo, the 5 disk DVD changer. I thought I was getting married, not moving into the frat house.


Hope you enjoyed seeing our dining room and living room! Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Yay for the start of summer!

I love Nambe as well! I actually have a very undomesticated friend who received a very nice Nambe serving platter and used it for her potpourri-she had no idea it was an expensive piece!
