One Room Three Ways~ My Living Room

I couldn't resist snapping some photos this morning to participate in the 
linky party for One Room Three Ways. 
Those of you that are familiar with my blog are not at all surprised to see that I chose my living room for the three different looks. 
It is my favorite room to switch up and try new looks on.
My kids are begging to go swimming, so to make things quick and easy I've created a collage of each look, and then underneath, a photo explaining how I came about the look and why.

To create a French Country look I used pattern, color, and texture.
The pillow has pattern, color comes from the  lavender, the preserved boxwood wreath and the grainsack (really a dish cloth from Ikea!).
The texture comes from the rustic basket and wood bread bowl.
 I also added an urn and vintage books to the side table to give a European feel.

The next look is Beach Casual.
 I actually just did a whole post on this look so I'm going to be lazy and refer you HERE
if you'd like to see more.

The final look is what I'm calling Nordic Cottage.
To me, Nordic style has lots of white and grey and usually plants and flowers. 
I brought in some of my favorite pillows and an old bucket. 
As well as some crepe myrtle from my yard.
(FYI: crepe myrtle makes a lousy cut flower, but I'm using what I have)
I adore cottage style and brought that in with a topiary, an old shutter and a vintage crate.

So which look is my favorite?

This one for sure!
It is just sooooo "me"!

If you'd like to see more of my living room here are some other looks I've put together this year.

  1. How beautiful!!! When pushed I'd say I like the beach casual, but dang, they're all just lovely Lisa :)

  2. You did a great job capturing the various styles! I like them all, but my favorite is the nordic style you did. That's my favorite in my home anyway. Love that crate you used on your coffee table and your pillows on your sofa. The nice thing is that you can go with any of those in your home and they work well.

  3. Oh Lisa! How pretty... all of them. I had to go back and relook :-) I luv them all, but I must say the french country one appeals to me. Colour, texture and pattern. Luv the pillow .
    There are things in the other looks that grabbed me as well. The shutter and pail in the Nordic look.
    Lantern and demijohns in the Beachy one...
    I remember the first time I saw a crepe myrtle in bloom. We mover from NYC to Alexandria Virginia in the spring. Theyw ere blooming en mass. I went outside and cut a nice bunch. Came inside and made a mess. Hahahahaaa...
    Happy Friday. Hugs, Gee

  4. Beautiful Lisa! I have the white slipcovered sofas too, but ugh, as soon as I get them washed and put back on the sofas, the dog comes in... How do you keep yours so bright with the boys?

  5. All of them are just beautiful Lisa but my favorite is the third one. A girl after my own heart with this Nordic Cottage look. Love it. Now take the boys to the pool to swim!!!!!! You deserve a break after all the switching up.

  6. I love all of your great accessories and how wonderful it looks all three ways. Great job and super post. Hugs, Marty

  7. I love seeing how just switching the accessories shifts the tone.

  8. You have such a beautiful home !! All 3 ways look wonderful!!

  9. I think I like all 3 of them...they are all beautiful I love all the looks and the way you created the different looks. Such a great a job!!

  10. I like all them all. Each space is so light and fresh. I love the switching up of a room and the idea of shopping your own home.

  11. I like the Nordic Cottage the best too!

  12. It's my favorite too. Even if I like the summer one, too :)

  13. They all look great! But you know the one for me: Nordic Cottage!!!! This was fun, Lisa. I might have to copy your "one room three ways" idea :)

  14. Lisa, I agree-all 3 looks are great, but my fav is the last one! I really love all the details! :)

  15. All your looks are gorgeous - love your green glass and my daughter's favorite animal is the sea horse!!

  16. Lisa,
    all 3 looks are lovely but the Nordic cottage is my favorite. It was a tough choice cuz your beachy look was so cute! Loved the seahorse and bottles.

  17. Oh, the Nordic Cottage is calling me - so beautiful.

  18. Great looks...I couldn't choose which was a favorite, because I think they all are :-)

    Thanks for sharing it!

  19. Wow! So fun the way you got three entirely different looks! Sure makes me want to change things up. Happy 4th of July!

  20. You nailed all three looks! I love them all! Your beautiful white furniture transforms so well!!!! Wonderful!

  21. Wow, these all look so great! I think the last one is my favorite too :)

  22. You guys did amazing jobs, what a fabulous challenge!
    All three looks are gorgeous, but I vote Nordic cottage.

  23. It's incredible how some little details can completely change the taste of a room! My favourite? Nordic cottage!
    have a nice week

  24. Your room always looks great, but the "Beach Cottage" and "Nordic Cottage" are my favourite versions.

  25. All of your room styles look really nice. I like your Nordic look the best too! Hope you had a happy 4th!

  26. I, of course, love all your looks!
