I don't have a preference for either but I have a vintage sectional and some small ottomans and a couple chairs that "blend in out in the open" I chose this mix because the sectional is amazing but I don't always want to be sitting right next to everyone either.

I just purchased some letterpress drawers to do this exact thing with! I figured it would keep the number of tacky souvenirs down if I only gave myself a small space to display them.

I do the jars with sand and rocks too. I've always been amazed at how different things like that are in different locations.

I did the same thing for the curtains in our living room--The price of new ones (none of which I really LOVED) was outrageous!

Mrs Meyes still has sodium laurel sulfate. Method uses artificial colors in a lot of their products.

Have to go with Lisa on this--My walls are a mix different things but I love every piece. If I didn't like something, no matter how nicely arranged--I'd see it first every time.

I originally used a fan for air flow in the room because I also wake more clear headed with it. Now I enjoy the noise :|

My family tends to wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving for Christmas stuff. Putting the tree up that Saturday is the "thing" for the weekend every year at my mother's house--seriously almost more important than Christmas dinner! All the decorations come down on January 1st or 2nd.

I have been married almost 3 years and still have placeholder furniture. We move with the military a lot and I don't want "nice" furniture ruined from constant moving. I have slowly started to replace items with things we want when I find them but I am in no rush to finish. I would rather take the time and spend money on what I want and have it last.

My husband, daughter and I are across the country from both of our families. We spend our holidays just the 3 of us and occasionally invite a few of the other soldiers that have no where to go or be for the holidays for a small dinner. I really enjoy our family traditions now and don't find them lonely at all. I think they end up feeling more personal for us.

My husband is away on his first deployment so this year will be harder on my daughter and I. We've been invited to spend the holidays with friends here but I know we'll be spending the majority of our holidays following our own traditions as the 2 of us instead of 3.

I love the idea--We live in old on-post housing and have huge lengths of cable in the living room and bedrooms(or we can push it back through the wall into the backyard) so I'll have to try something like this!

On another note--the cord for that lamp is SUPER long.

Our rental sits in a way that we can see into 3 different neighboring homes from our master bedroom. Unfortunately, all the views are direct! The widows have a great tint to them but you can see everything after the sun goes down. We solved the problem by spraying the offending windows with Rustoleum's glass frosting spray--cheap, fast and removable!

What a beautiful home! I love the cut-outs on the stairs and the tiles in the bathroom. The way the tile meets the wood in the kitchen area is pretty unique! Never seen that before.

I like the top right as well. I do think you should check out your local carpet stores too. Often it is cheaper to have a piece bound for a rug.

I love the look but I really wouldn't be able to handle the dust--It is definitely a deal breaker for me.

Interesting idea but I would NEVER have that in my house.

It would really stink to find out that bag really was too heavy...

I love the way the books look but I don't think I have that many colors!?! Plus, it would drive me crazy--I like them by subject for easy locating.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the bowl and lampshade!
