Blue and White Winter Living Room

Hello Friends!

Yes, I am still here. 

Most of you know I still decorate around my house and do little projects here and there thru my INSTAGRAM account, but with so many things going on, particularly a very busy Winter season with regards to my job, the kids have non-stop activities from basketball (for Aidan), to play rehearsals (for Nio) and Toddler Gymnastics (for Sophia), I just don't have as much time for moi and blogging,  as I'd like! :-)

No complaining here, but like most of you who are mothers running a household, you know that Blogging always takes a back seat when it comes to family. And as much as I would love to share so many little things with regards to my home, I just cannot find the time! Hence, my usually long posts with lots of photos. 

So anyway, finally things have slowed down a bit and I am sharing with you now my home once again for this Winter!

All my Blue and white collection are out!

As you can see, we have something new  in the back if the sofa...

My husband's new hobby - Saltwater Aquarium
Yes, there are fishes inside, all shy and hiding, I couldn't take a good photo. And believe me, the work my husband puts into this tank is just plain insane! I didn't know how difficult to set this thing up! We already 'killed' 3 fishes, 1 anemone, 2 snails and 1 shrimp" with this thing! LOL! It's a work in progress and as my husband says, a lot of patience!

Super happy with my newest pillows - My new Chiangmai China blue pillow from Studio Tullia from Etsy and my 2 new navy blue velvet pillows from Hobby Lobby!

Still hung up from my recent trip to Paris, I have a book on it on my coffee table and on the Louvre!

More blue and white here!

Couldn't be prouder of these abstracts, I painted them myself!
I couldn't find the right art work to display by the stairway and of course, it had to be BLUE, so I decided to just paint away! And to be honest, I actually enjoyed painting and actually love my own work! LOL! I'm sure these babies which I call "Thoughts on Blue" ( yup, I have to improve on naming my paintings), won't be my last!

Love my new Matisse Art print from! Perfect backdrop for my growing blue and white collection.

Displaying the books I collected during our recent trip!

I hope you enjoyed my Living room tour! I'm getting ready to add a bit of Valentine here and there, but nothing crazy (like HAlloween or Christmas ;-)). I hope you are all doing well and I will definitely drop by soon!

Have a Great Week!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...

  14. Vel,
    I can relate to the hectic schedule(i need more hours in the day). Thank goodness for Instagram where posting is quick and easy:-). I am loving all your blue and white decor, very beautiful!

  15. Hi Vel! Oh, honey, I so remember the days when my children were young and so busy. I only have two so I know you are busier than I was. Well, regardless, look at your most gorgeous home! I love your pretty blues! I remember the fish time with my daughter. I can't tell you how many fishes went belly up! ;) Nice to know your hubby is really into ti as I do believe keeping fish alive in a tank does take practice and patience. I know they all went to fish heaven though! :) Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  16. Your coffee table styling is lovely. My daughter has one cute fish with personality. It gets so excited when I talk to it :)
