Week 5: The Living Room

Well we are officially in week five of A Bowl Full of Lemon’s 14 week Challenge.  This week we are working on the living room.  I love my living room, it was one of the reasons I bought my house years ago.  It is a large open space with vaulted ceilings.  I love that it has an entry way and french doors leading out to the patio.


I love my entry way.  When I was looking at houses, I wanted an entry way and not just a front door the opened up right into a room.  I keep my entry way real simple and uncluttered.  Right next to the door is rack, where I can hang up my purse or coat so I can grab it and go.


 I love that my living room is warm and inviting.  I love yellows, reds, and turquoise and defently display those colors in my living room. 


Baskets are a great way to place your blankets.  I like to roll mine up so they look more inviting than just folding them.


I always love my sitting area, it’s actually the area my family fights over the most.  The wicker baskets in the cubbies hide my candles, wall plug scents, dog leashes and outdoor items (in the winter its stocking hats and gloves and the summer bug spray, baseball caps and sunscreen).  I also keep my keys in the basket on top so I can grab and go.


Storage is sometimes a valuable item, this trunk helps with the random Christmas dishes and breakable items.  That way I don’t have to worry about them getting broken.


Last I don’t want to forget about Little Fella.  Most of his toys stay in his room, but he does have a little area in the Living Room that he keeps his toys.  Baskets are a great way to keep all the toys nice and neat. 

Good Luck with your organization this week and I hope you found some inspiration for your own space!
