Inspiration Workshop - Living Room

Our Living Room...hmm...

Well, I have two toddlers and I lack in home decor sense. Therefore, I have a very uninteresting living room. 

But it gets the job done, it's pretty cozy, and is decluttered and clean.
 Yep, my couch is IN FRONT of the fire place. But really. It's THAT hideous. Me and the hubs also cannot agree on a coffee table or find one to our taste. Thus, the living room is a racetrack.
 I have this little corner for my kiddies toys and books. It's actually kind of cute. Well, to me it is.
 I have pared down all knick knacks to only things I love. This was my grandmother's statuette of Mary and the Baby Jesus. It was always in her house as far back as I can remember.
 The boat was my Grandfather's. He had a small collection. My hubby found the groovy little clock while doing some decluttering this past weekend.
These are in the "dining room" technically but it's all one big room. My husband won these from a local artist and they are just so cool looking.

Okay, so that's pretty much it. My living room says: I have kids, (hence the lack of breakables and white), I am sensible, and I have no coffee table, haha!
Here are some lovely bits of inspiration...notice how everything is white...and there are no TVs...hmm...
