My Favorite Room!

Our "formal" living room has always been my favorite room since we bought our house 1 year ago. I loved the light from the windows and the wood-burning fireplace. I use quotations because we have another TV room. Initially, I was going to use this room to read and relax with friends, but that rarely happens. My husband & I starting "calling" the TV (him- sports, me- my shows). I came home 1 night to a huge box on my zebra rug- a new flat screen! Now, I know I will use this room more often and my husband & I can both watch what we want. 
For those that know me I love zebra print. I only wanted a zebra rug for this room and added purple & blues as accent colors.

I love the modern look and the glass doors. Inside there are removable glass shelves for convenience. This piece fit perfectly on this wall next to the staircase and the white blends perfectly with the other pieces in the room. 
 Next Project: replace the out-dated blinds with curtains!
