{Our Living Room}

In previous posts I have shown you several other rooms already, so today I take you inside our Living Room. For links to the other rooms, you can check below this post.
You come inside the living room from the entrance hall and there is another door into the kitchen on the right side (for the viewer).
Like our bedrooms and dining room we do have here also solid red oak Liberty Plains natural 5" planks.
We have many things from exotic places where we worked and/or lived.
The wooden chess set and the two wall plaques are from Bali, Indonesia.
Later I will show you certain things again with more detail.
The furniture is all solid French oak and we did bring it over from The Netherlands, it crossed the Atlantic Ocean three times.
You see the door to our veranda here.
The arched window is looking out onto the garden, backside of the house with our huge live oak tree.
The arched window also has solid oak (painted white) indoor shutters for saving energy and being Eco friendly.
A collection of Baccarat crystal.
Stepping back it looks like this. A large solid oak rectangular coffee table and a 3-seat leather sofa; a love seat; a chair and an ottoman.
Tomorrow I will show you the Italian and German wood carved angels - cherubs - putties on the mantle shelf and chimney wall.
A double window looking out onto the balcony.
Full view of the double window, with the solid oak indoor shutters. Very hard to capture against the light.
The Energy Star ceiling fan has been hung by Pieter earlier this year, see link below. What a perfect timing for this record hot summer!
The 42-color 19th century Danish cross stitch embroidered roses on the wall I've shown before in a post, you can find the link also below this post.
We have lots of books in our home... This is the secretaire and its leather chair.
Stepping back a little bit to see the love seat and the rest.
That completes our circle, almost back at the hallway door...
That's it!
A classic interior, as we don't change much.
We've been now 63 times to The Netherlands to see mainly my Parents and Pieter's elder brother, he lost the middle brother and his sisters-in-law already. When we lived in Italy, Pieter's Mom died, so we actually drove to her funeral in about 12 hours time.
Visiting family and dear friends has more value to us than replacing furniture...
Peace of mind is important for being able to grow old gracefully with a smile on your face instead of bitterness.
There will always be new furniture, but one's life can be lived ONLY once.
Loved ones and the TRUE LOVE of your life are worth much more for investing in...

Tomorrow you will meet the Angels - Cherubs - Putti!

  1. Goede Morgen Mariette
    Wat ziet het er gezellig uit bij jullie,dat zou ik ook eens moeten doen wat foto's van ons huisje moeten delen,het is wel maar een klein rijhuisje zoals in nederland en veel decoratie.Voorbijgangers zeggen dan ook dikwijls oh zie een hollands huisje.Maar het moet niet groot zijn om een echte thuis te zijn hé en onze meubels hebben we ook al heeeel lang maar kan er geen afstand van doen.
    Nog een leuke dag vandaag.
    Lieve groetjes Carine

  6. Dearest Mariette,
    Oh, thank you very much for inviting us to your lovely living room. As I thought, you have an excellent taste. The most impressive thing was that you have many pictures of your families besides the varieties of exotic treasures. It shows how much you love your families.
    Really cozy and relaxing looking room you have!!!
    Love and Lots of Hugs from Japan, Orchid*

  9. Liebe Mariette,

    vielen Dank, dass wir dich besuchen durften. Es sieht sehr gemütlich und heimelig bei euch aus. Stimmt, neue Möbels sind nicht so wichtig. Wichtig ist, dass man sich zu Hause wohl fühlt. Und dass ihr euch wohl fühlt, das sieht man an den vielen kleinen Dingen in eurem Wohnzimmer - alles Stücke mit Erinnerungen, an denen ihr hängt.

    Liebe Grüße schickt dir Elvira

  13. Hello Mariette! It was so nice to see your little face in my comments:) I haven't been on my blog too much lately, been stitching and crafting a lot.

    What a beautiful and warm living room you and your husband have created! I just love the collection of black and white photo's, they look lovely grouped together like that:) It looks like a nice room to curl up and read in on a rainy day too!

  17. My dearest and sweet friend Mariette:
    Thank you so much for let us see your home, certainly it feels a warm welcoming, very nice, neat and charming.

    And I definitely agreed when you say that "Loved ones and the TRUE LOVE of your life are worth much more for investing in"
    In Mexico we have a saying: "De que le sirve al hombre ganarse al mundo entero, si se pierde a si mismo"
    The translation would be something like this: "What is the purpose of a man to have the whole world, if he loses himself?"
    To invest in your love ones worth more than all the gold in the whole world.
    It is a pity some people I know very well, don't think like that.

    Thanks for visiting me, and I didn't get any email from you, sorry for that, this is my email: laura.busko@gmail.com feel free to drop some lines that would make me feel so happy.

    Have a wonderful day,

    lots of love,

    Laura =)

  20. OMG ..but I enjoyed my living room visit with you ...There are so many warm and exciting memorabilia memories to take in and savour..each with a grand story( I'm sure)...and What a nice cosy feeling you've created...This was fun !!! ..HUGS

  21. My dearest Mariette , you have a lovely and welcoming living room. I hope you will include the Angel lamp above the sofa (in 4th photo) in your next post ~ my eye went straight to it!!

    It's interesting that you mentioned visiting family and friends over new furniture .. I have been travelling that same mind set lately. We have become a disposable society .. replacing things before they are needing replacement.. and not taking the time to see if it can be repaired.

    Your home is filled with love, and beautiful treasured items that have history behind each piece. May we all be as fortunate to recognize what really is important in life.

    Thanks for always inspiring me to think outside the box and step closer to living and enjoying!!

    Many blessings to you and Pieter for all that you bring to the life of your readers!! hugs , xo HHL

  25. Dear Mariette,

    Your living room is wonderful and so inviting, and many thanks for showing us around.
    Everything looks so comfortable and lovely.
    With all your beautiful furniture and treasured items from around the world, must remind you of the other places you lived in.
    I really love the arched window with the wooden shutter.

    Happy week
    Hugs
    Carolyn

  26. Dearest Mariette, Your room is beautiful. Warm and friendly. I love the oak and it has staying power, so sturdy. I love the rich color of oak. I love all your book storage, that is a treasure.
