so this week, i’m sharing more detailed photos of my living room, which you may have seen in the Land of Nod catalog.  before we go any further….did you see the video? i’m a little in love with it.   i’m still a rather overwhelmed by the response and all of  the lovely notes i have been receiving (and if you have e-mailed me with a question, i promise i will get back to you).  thank you all so much for your kind words.

you can shop the look of this room right here!  but here is a list of resources :

paint /  winter wheat by benjamin moore / inner child by sherwin williams (above fireplace) . . . great name for our playful room, right?
chairs /  both vintage finds
disco ball / flea market find
chests / circulation chest
art / land of nod (with the exception of the mosaic – DIY coming tomorrow)
mirror / the mirror lady
rugs / land of nod
couch / crate and barrel
coffee table /  crate and barrel
pouf / land of nod
floor lamp / land of nod
bench / vintage find
the swing / the swing was custom made by a carpenter. if you would like further information please e-mail me.  however, a swing DIY is likely in the works for next month…so stay tuned.
masks / lucky fish who has the most rad stuff.  sadly, as of now no masks are not available.  but you will want everything else they have, i promise.

look for mosaic DIY tomorrow and next week, i’ll be sharing pictures from the boys room.

La La LOVING you blog – you probably get that all the time. Found you via our latest LoN catalogue. I too am a mama of four. As I was hanging our swing in the living room, my mom watched on and asked, “who would want a swing in the middle of their living room?”. It is never vacant and since having it (we’ve actually had a swing since the oldest was 18 m, 6 years ago) many of our friends have adopted the idea too. I also have a disco ball in our parlour. Can you please tell me from what yours is hanging? Your blog is fantastic! Your children and home are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

hi robyn….so glad you are stopping by! no way…. 4 kids, a swing and a disco ball! we are kindred! the disco ball is just hanging from a hook that screws in the ceiling…kind of like this:

i just have a white one. can’t remember if i spray painted it or found a white one. and then it is on a chain and we wrapped ribbon around it.

thank you for your kind words! xo . t

This is such a beautiful space! I love the idea of painting a shape instead of the whole wall!

Thanks for the paint color! How was that mural done behind the swing and where is that cute Swiss cross pillow from?


replied on February 13th, 2013 at 2:40pm

the mural is several pieces and was printed on a blue print printer. i may be doing a tutorial in the near future ….so stay tuned! and the cross pillow was actually hand made (and hand painted) for an event i helped style last year.

Oh Trina,
I am in love with your home. It’s awesome. You continue to inspire me, and make me love my blogging experience even more.
We must meet someday…..we’re both Chicagoland gals!

I absolutely adore your space. So cozy yet modern and inviting! LOVE the swing! May I ask how it’s holding up? And how it’s worked with your kiddos (I have two, and would LOVE to try a swing similar to this, but would love some mama experience advice! ;-) )

Also, please please, do a tutorial on the wall mural! It’s amazing!!



replied on December 4th, 2014 at 2:37pm

thank you so much! the swing is holding up great – over two years now! :) xo .t
