  1. Beautiful tour, Lory. I love all your updates. That new painting is such a better fit over the sofa and the drapery rods are gorgeous.

  2. Really lovely. The neutrals with soft shades and metallics work so well together and have so much more life then all the white on white on white that’s shown everywhere. Love the details!

    This is very nice. I thought I miss the yellow tones, but I don’t. Lovely as always!

    1. Thank you so much, Elizabeth!! It’s funny how strongly I once felt about the yellow and now I feel it was the thing that had to go. That’s the beauty of paint. It’s so easy and inexpensive to change.

  4. I just love the difference your paint has made in all your spaces! And you’re so right – the dahlias would be perfect in this room all year! That is a flower that I rarely buy and now seeing how pretty they are, I’m wondering why?!

    I’m so glad you could join us Lory! Happy fall!


    1. Thanks, Sheila! I know, I discovered how much I love dahlias like a year or so ago and wondered why it took me so long to realize… 🙂

  5. Absolutely gorgeous!!! I love this room. The rug is gorgeous too wish I could find one like it. Again, gorgeous, beautiful job.

  6. What a beautiful and relaxing room! I love the soft neutrals – and the new paint and curtains do lighten it up – just gorgeous! Can’t wait to see what you do with the sconce wall!

  7. Love the paint color ( as well as everything else! ho makes the paint?

    Each of you ladies are awesome and beautiful homes

  9. I just love the rug! Is it a one of a kind find? I also love the painting!

    1. Thank you, Eileen! I bought the rug many years ago. It’s not vintage, so I wouldn’t say one of a kind. It was from a typical rug dealer that carries imported rugs.

  10. Lory, what beautiful updates you’ve made ! That gorgeous tufted ottoman had me at hello 😉 So fun doing this Fall tour with you again!

  11. Where did you buy the pretty white serving bowl with the silver asparagus handles? It is the perfect size. Thank you.

    Hi Lory,

    You leave me with such inspiration when I visit. Recently, my husband decided to give me his front room! He wants to move his theme upstairs and trade me my small solarium with his beautiful salt water fish tanks. What an impression that will leave someone coming through the front door! lol

    A little like you, it took me about 3 years to decide what theme I wanted my kitchen. I love blue, so will accent the kitchen in soft blues with a very soft dove grey on the walls which now will extend to the front room. Now I begin looking once more for inspiration and here you are showing your front room! My husband really likes your fireplace from another post I shared with him and while he was not crazy about the light colors, he really appreciated the textures you used to warm the room up. He also found it funny about if your hubby did not like the lowered bathroom counters, there were 2 more bathrooms upstairs. He laughed gleefully at your humor.

    Thank you for generously sharing your style, taste and talent with us. I really appreciate it and draw so much from your journey. Now when I think of Earl Grey, I think of you. ;o)

    Thank you also for taking time out reading our post and answering back. Have a wonderful week!

    1. Love the room updates! Is the couch fabric a original fabric? Where did you get it? Thanks!

  13. Oh my goodness Lory. I love your style and look forward to your posts and ideas. But that gorgeous coffee table. I’m swooning. Thank you for this lovely post. Cindy

    OOOOh my gosh, this is just gorgeous Lory. May I please ask where you got the sofa and the drapery ? This is so beautiful. I love everything about this room. Update is what I need to do also but I feel like I dont know where to even start. Your furniture is gorgeous, thank you for sharing this with all of us out here.

    1. Thank you so much, Rosemarie! The sofa is from Ethan Allen, but it’s at least 10 years old. The drapery is new, though and it’s from Restoration Hardware. It’s the washed belgian linen drapery panels in the bisque color.

  15. Christy Dawn Owens says:

    Lovely. Can you please share the source of your drapery panels and the gorgeous rods

  16. Tonya Schoepf says:

    Lovely updates, I also would like to know the source for the drapery panels.

  17. lovely! Just what I have been looking for. Can you please tell me what color the wall color is and who makes it?

  18. Thanks for sharing awesome collection of decorative ideas.
    Keep posting great content.

  19. Fun ideas on the Small Living Room piece that I can maybe DYI. Thanks

    I love the touches of gold/bronze for metals, been seeing a lot of black for years with the farmhouse style, it is refreshing to see some softer metals!

  21. Such good ideas and I can’t wait to incorporate them into my decor!

    Hey! Thanks for sharing this helpful information..

  23. Hello! This update is lovely and I found your post after I did a search for Tapestry Beige paint. I’ll be painting my living room this colour soon. The curtains you picked are just what I want as well. I don’t see a lot of information about them, can you link them or give me any more details about their fabric or construction? They blend beautifully and look so nice and full.

  24. This is a lovely change and I’m happy you kept the rug it is beautiful. Those pumpkins are adorable, I bet they make you smile each time you pass by them.

  25. Chris Tressler says:

    I love your rooms and inspiration.
