Whoops - sorry! This post was supposed to be yesterday but I had a little glitch. Anyway, here it is. The living room at Jason's house isn't as far along as the kitchen and dining room, but we have made a bit of progress in there. Jason painted the walls last fall (with help from our parents) in Galveston Gray by Benjamin Moore. Then Jamie painted the trim in Simply White and the backsides of the doors in Wrought Iron (I had painted the other side last summer). Jamie and Josh ended up getting a sectional for their family room so they passed their IKEA Ektorp sofa on down to him for a small fee. We did go ahead and buy a fresh new slipcover for it but haven't bothered to put it on yet. We figured we would wait until the room was a little bit closer to being finished. We bought some chairs on Joss & Main using some of our store credit which was nice. Because they are gray and tufted we will be moving the ottoman to another room seeing how it looks a little funny with so much gray tufting all together. We are on the hunt for a more masculine coffee table. I've found a few that I think would work nicely in here but I may just end up making one. We'll see. We found these pillows at White Home Market in Wilton, NH which is a little sale they have once a month across the street from a place called White Home Collection.
We used Revere Pewter for the bricks on the fireplace. That side of the room is still quite a work in progress so I didn't really take any shots of that. Hopefully I will be able to my next visit.
We didn't have time to get the draperies hung in here before I took the photos, but Jason has since gotten them hung which helps make the back wall not look so bare. And the ship (which I LOVE) is sitting on old dresser from my grandfather's house. I love the lines of it but it needs some cleaning up. That will hopefully be one of my projects during my next trip.

I also wanted to re-introduce on of our sponsors, Amber, from Kylie Bryn Designs.
