Kristin has a lovely home in Florida with gorgeous beamed ceilings. She emailed me recently asking for advice on a chandelier and whether or not I thought my sputnik DIY would work in her space, with her wood beams. I suggested going with a white versions and I’m so thrilled with Kristin’s results. Don’t the white florets look like milk glass? Love! 

Here are some photos of her living room (and one of her breakfast nook – so cute!). Sources listed at the bottom.

sofa table – antique
woven tray on table – a gift from a shop in our town called Decorative Arts
green lamps – one of my favorite vintage finds
green end table – purchased for $8.00 from the Salvation Army and painted!  I love the greek key detailing
small chinoisserie planter – found at an antique store
chinoisserie bird coasters – purchased years ago at Anthropologie
brown leather tufted couch – the company is four hands but I purchased from Decorative Arts (this couch and I were love at first sight! :))
throw pillows on both couches – feather pillow same from T.J. Maxx and were recovered with fabric from Calico Corners
throw blanket – Missoni for Target (I was one of those crazy people that were lined up early in the morning at my local Target) :)
Ottoman – purchased at Home Goods, and reupholstered by my amazing friend Cori who first introduced me to LGN! (fabric from Calico Corners)
white mirrored tray on ottoman – Target and then we repainted it white
tweed couch – company unknown.  Purchased at a boutique home store in Tampa, Fl called Magnolia
Bookshelves – Billy Book cases of course!  Inspired by Jenny, we bought the white bookcases and then painted the backs in a dark brown color.  We then styled them with sentimental objects such as vintage books passed down from family, photos, a painting my husband made for me, silhouette of my son Hudson, etc…
T.V. stand in the middle of the bookshelves – we scored this piece at a garage sale…  It was formerly a buffet.  We repainted it off white to match the bookshelves, took one drawer out to accomodate the electronics and replaced the hardware.
little glass bottle with scent diffuser – Anthropologie
Large green glass jars on top of bookshelves – Decorative Arts
Area Rug – Diamond Jute from Pottery Barn
Children’s chairs – Pottery Barn Kids in Sherpa ( I think I sent you a picture of Harper enjoying it! )
Small table in between children’s chairs – a vintage find
Entry mahogony table – found this years ago at an antique store with knob and all!
lamp on table – vintage ginger jar lamp; shade from decorative arts
small dragonfly tray on entry table – John Derian tray
potted plant – Anthropologie
floor lamp next to children’s chairs – Pottery Barn
bird pictures on wall near children’s chairs – these are antique audobon prints.  I repainted the frames gold.
large wooden basket under entry table – antique basket found years ago at the Rennigars Antique show in Mt. Dora, Fl
the window woven roman shades throughout the room – custom made from Levelor.  
Mirror on fireplace – Honeycomb Mirror from Pier 1 (inspired by Jenny and February’s Southern Living).  I think that this mirror is even more gorgeous in person.  It’s beautiful!
Wooden duck on hearth – carved by my grandfather when I was a child
Chandelier – Ikea Maskros DIY (courtesy of Jenny and Little Green Notebook!) She recommended to keep the chandelier white and use the white fleur cups.  I love, love, love this light fixture!

  1. Everything is so pretty.
    I went through the source list & didn't see where the milk glass cups for the light fixture are from. Are they from Amazon like yours were?

  2. The 2 green jade-esque lamps are the vintage score of the decade. It's great that she left them together (instead of separating them on end tables) b/c together they pack so much oomph. Wonderful use of the large green leaf plant to play up the green factor even more. I really adore this room and would love to see more of the house!

  3. Gorgeous room – love the repurposing, upcycling, and creativity. Was just wondering why though, the cool green lamps and the sofa table are soooo far away from the sofa. Seems they are right in the window rather than close enough to shed light on the sofa? Just wondering…..

  4. Ah, I love this Room Tour! It was good to sit and digest why I love it so much. I adore the beams, the pretty greens, neutrals and whites together. The room looks so down to earth and so hip at the same time. Fresh, inviting, thought out, but not overly curated. Thanks for sharing such great inspiration!

  5. Great, approachable room! I might have missed it, but what is the name of the green paint color you used on the furniture? Thanks for sharing your home!

  6. This is such a real home styled up. So beautiful! I love seeing the kids toys peeking into the pictures.

    If its possible I would really love to know the color of the green end table at the end of the sofa that Kristin painted. Its a perfect green color and I want to steal her idea! :-)

  7. Kristin, if you are reading, do you live in Vero Beach? If so, we need to be friends! I LOVE your house, and have a son who seems around the same age as your daughter, I live in the Melbourne area. ;) Your house totally reminds me of mine, with the exposed beams and raw wood. Also, have to check out that store that you mentioned…

    My email address is listed on my blog at

    Email me! :)


  8. Jenny,

    Thanks so much for featuring our living room. We are totally honored!

    To answer some of the questions posted…the green paint on the end table was color matched to the Robert Allen fabric on the ottoman as we couldn't find that color in a swatch! The plant in the corner is a white bird of paradise although I confess that I've just recently replaced it with a fiddle leaf fig. :) The milk glass looking cups are similar to Jenny's but were purchased on restaurant.com
    Thanks everyone for your kind words and thank you again Jenny!!!
