A Peek into my Family Room and This Week’s Quote


“There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.”

– Jane Austen

The lovely Crystal, of Plush Palate invited me to share a room in my home with her readers. Of course, I couldn’t leave my own readers out, so I invite you to read my guest post and take a look at my humble family room which is a constant work in progress. I hope you like it!

Happy Monday!

Tell Me What You Think! leave a comment...

  1. I love it! There are so many things that speak to my ascetic, especially that lamp. *drool* Of course, I have the minimalist look going on that is known as baby-proofing. @@ Seriously, Paloma, surfaces you would think are safe, like…I don’t know… the table behind the couch, totally aren’t. One day it will look cool again… one day. Looking at this gives me something to look forward to.

  2. Thank you all so much! It’s a little intimidating posting your own house when you post the gorgeous work of professionals on a daily basis.

    Jenn, I’m glad you liked the chairs. The chairs are actually a dark chocolate color, but they do look black on film.

  3. Love seeing “real” rooms, especially those belonging to my favorite bloggers. Thanks for sharing, Paloma! (And those refurbished chairs are fantastic!)

  4. I thought what you did show was great. Not sure why you were nervous about showing it because there was nothing wrong with the pieces that you did show. maybe is a designer thing…but looked great.

  5. I have the same Domino book on display in my bookcase and the same pattern on those chairs are on some throw pillows on my bed. And I absolutely love those books.

  6. I stumbled across your blog this morning and now you’ve put the biggest smile on my face! I love the TOP 10 LISTS too and play it often with clients and friends….your list mimicks mine!
    What fun it was to read–thanks for the bit of sunshine this morning!
    Blessings for a gorgeous day —
