Winter Blues in the Living Room

I hope you all had  a wonderful weekend everyone!

Today is the last day of this "Winter Blues Series", I hope you enjoyed the last two since this one is the 'less blue' of all. Actually, I have more jewel tones in this room than in any other.

The house looks almost empty post-holiday doesn't it? But also feels more relaxing.
As always, it starts with the pillow change. These 2 - the denim and the country toile are both from IKEA I bought about a year ago but only got to use only now. I also switched back the lamps.

Coffee table didn't change much. Just added my amber grapes for the Christmas beads and added all the brass.

Brass galore on the piano

I think my pair of KERRY STEELE watercolors look perfect with all the brass along with the greens in my orchids.

Aisian-inspired console
I planted some Amaryllis which hasn't bloomed yet, so I placed my faux ones here first.
My Mantel is simple but I love how the painting captures all the colors in our living room

More Jewel tones here

The throw is a gift from my friend Grace.

Do you see Sophia's Playpen peaking behind? I need fix that area fast before she starts crawling around.
That's all folks! Thank you so much for following along!

Have a Great Week!



  1. Everything looks beautiful, Vel. I love the mix of colors, and your brass collection is fantastic.

  2. Your home looks gorgeous sweet Vel. As much as I like the holiday d├ęcor, I so much like it back to normal. Loving the brass in the piano, such a great look! The pillows in blue and it's just perfect, sweetie. Have a happy week.

  3. Great colors, Vel! I love pops of blue and that purple!

  4. Is the mirror on your console table leaning against something, suspended, or is it on a stand? I can't quite tell-- but love the effect.

  5. So pretty, Vel! Wow, those fiddle leaf figs love it at your house!

  6. Every time I see that room, I'm struck by how beautiful it is.

  7. Your living-room looks absolutely wonderful. I love your amazing windows and all the light pouring in thanks to them!

  8. Everything's perfect, but those 2 chairs near the window are to die for. I just love them to death.

    Hope everybody is in the best of everything. Miss S. is a big girl now, :§:-) awww! sakit ng ulo sa Tatay soon. I bet yah, Doc?

    Take care and hugs to your boys n the Lil Missy.

  9. Hi Vel, In all the times I've looked at your photos, I just noticed the mantle. It's very unique and I haven't seen one like it before. Very nice! And your room as always looks like a magazine page. I don't know how you get the energy to do all the things you do! And you do them all so well! Have a great week!

  10. Everything looks so beautiful! I of course love your pops of blue.

  11. I think this is such a beautiful room, Vel, and always looks lovely however you have it decorated. I do kike your touches of blue along with some other jewel tones!

  12. That is one gorgeous room, my friend! You really have an eye for decorating. It's totally magazine worthy!

  13. Your winter blues made me feel the opposite of blue! (That was so bad... I apologize...) Anyway. Love the room. It looks gorgeous! Also, you won the book giveaway on my site :) Yay for you!! xo Kristy

  14. Of course it always starts with the pillows :) Looks so stylish, cozy and blissful with the blue accents and layers. Cheers, Vel!!!
