My Mom's House



Today I'm sharing just a few pictures of my Mom's living room.  I snapped
these really quickly when I was at her place in Canada last fall, so the
picture quality isn't great, but you will get the idea. 

Mom lives in a beautiful Victorian (newer Victorian) style home and she
has decorated it beautifully!  I can't tell you how many of the pieces in
this picture came from Utah.  We love to treasure hunt when she is here!
Those lovely highback Victorian chairs were blue when she purchased them
here at an auction.  She had them reupholstered in swanky burgandy velvet
and they are gorgeous!  Hmmm...let's see...the sconces on either side of the
mirror, the candlesticks and the rose vase are all from Utah too!





Here's a different view out toward the sunroom...as if you couldn't tell...it's
looking kind of bright!  I love her sofa and loveseat!  It is so comfortable and
it reminds me of the furniture that used to be on the show "Bonanza"...sort of
an elegant Victorian ranch style.  She has lots of pretty carved floral rugs too!





This silver tea service is a favorite too and it weighs a ton!





A closer view...





And out the garden door to the deck...

Hope you enjoyed!

You are so lucky and your Mom likes the same thing, her house is gorgeous! I can see why you spend so much time there! the chairs and fire place oh, and the rug! I love it all! My Mom does not really get what I do and how I decorate, she is ultra modern....A real role reversal!

Very elegant, open and airy...not at all stuffy victorian. And I actually like that too! Anything victorian. :o) I love the loveseat and those chairs...love, love !
