The "Secret" Living Room

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are all having a great week. My week started off with a much needed  trip to Las Vegas with some friends. We were lucky enough to stay from Sunday - Tuesday. It was the perfect little getaway. We stayed at The Aria. I highly recommend this gorgeous hotel. It is sleek and modern , which is not necessarily MY decorating style, but I certainly appreciated it.Now back to the real world.......

This is my "secret" living room. I call it this because it is MY favorite room in the house and nobody goes in it! We all spend our time in the den and family room. I am not sure the rest of my family knows it exists:)

This chaise is the coziest spot and it is one of my oldest pieces in my home! As you can see I also have a LOVE for blue and white transferware and PILLOWS! I am a bit pillow crazy, but they are so comfortable and cozy. In my opinion they add warmth to a room.
I got this old cupboard about 12 years ago at an antique store. I love to fill it with candles, photos, white ceramics. It is always changing. The color is such a pretty blue and the best part is that it is chippy all over.

 And here is some more...........................

I love filling my old iron urns with shells. Iron urns are so beautiful and they have so many uses. You can fill them with plants, utensils, shells, towels, dried flowers, lavender, soaps etc. I have many of them both indoors and outdoors. Also, the rustier, the better:)
This pale blue candlestick and its pair was the first thing I ever purchased at a flea market (over a decade ago):)

Thanks for visiting my living room. I guess it is not  so "secret" anymore!
Enjoy the rest of the week.
