Why I Like This...

I am sharing some photos with you today. They are images that I have saved for one reason or another. This could be called a "this and that" post. But sometimes I just feel the need to share with you. :-)

Let me tell you "Why I like this..."

Ethan Allen
This living room is so serene! 
There is no clutter. I want it. :-) 

I also love the picture and the coffee table. I wonder if they would work in my house. I think so.☺ I am not so interested in the grey fabric, but the sofa frame is very nice! 

I love the wall paint above. Soft. Relaxing. And the lamps are just perfect. The updated lamp shade makes the ginger jar shape current. 

I have a monogram similar to this and I want to spray paint mine gold. Very elegant. That is an easy update for me. Some are hard, and complicated. ha!

What I like about this cute bedroom? The red painted twin beds. We (you and I) could do this, right. 

I like this diagram because it shows just how we should shop for rugs when we want one in a seating grouping, under a table, or under a bed. We all need some guidelines from time to time. 

This gorgeous pillow...I want my mother to see this. She is using this shade of teal as an accent color in her new house. I will show you some photos soon. 

I love shades of green...and I could live with the selections above! I love the Greek key trim!

On the other hand I also like blue! 

And the grey tile...that's what I really like about the picture above. 

We have to redo the tile in our guest bathroom...due to an issue with the subfloor. Our tile cracked! Now, I have to look at tile selections again. I am not a happy camper. Really.

I can spot a golden retriever a mile away. 
Look at these two sweeties. I like this picture because those goldens make me smile!

I don't think I have to tell you why I like this picture. He is packed and ready to head to his grandparents' house where he can get some respect! ha.

It's just too cute.

Hello, I'm Sheila and my house is a giant art project! I enjoy creating an environment where my family can feel safe, secure, and loved. We are empty nesters learning to slow down and enjoy life.


  1. Shelia, Lots of wonderful inspiration this morning. I hope that you enjoy your day!!!

  2. I love this post, Sheila!! And you know what? There's something I love about each and every one of those photos!!

  3. Definitely love the first picture...serene and uncluttered..the shape of the sofa, the dark hardwoods, the picture...yes, please... The rug placement guide is a good thing to pin. I use Pinterest as my storage for ideas and recipes. ha! Have a good weekend...xoxo

  4. I think I am addicted to clutter although I call it decorative and necessary "accoutrements". I'm more of the English country home with a touch of Charles Faudree kind of girl ;-) By the way, love your exquisite block front chest!!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  5. Love the Ethan Allen space. Looks like my parents' house -- at least until my kids arrive!

  6. Great post! I am loving that living room too, it makes me want to de-clutter my living room for an easier style and easier to clean.

  7. Lovely inspirations. Thanks for sharing at Monday Social!

  8. All lovely choices. Eeny, meeny, miny, moe!
