"Flaunt Your Red" a day late!

Hey guys! Welcome to "Flaunt Your Red" hosted
by nancy at http://southernlady-nancy.blogspot.com/ . What a great event! Today I wanted to show you a few pics of the "MAN'S" Room.....well, he shares it with me, lol! This is where I do my blogging. Here is our new sofa we ordered from Ashley Furniture a few months ago. We had our old sofa for more than 10 yrs. and it was looking and smelling a little bad! So, with some of my christmas decorating money we decided it was time to get a new one. I didn't like the pillows that it came with and had these on my old sofa. They add alot of color when they're not thrown on the floor. I had the curtains already and knew they would look fine with the new sofa. The red in here is more of a cinnamon color.

Here is where I do my blogging. The chair, orchids, and decorative balls all have the cinamon color in them. The bowl to the left was handmade in Hawaii to resemble a volcano, it looks a little like an ashtray.

These pictures hang over the big screen T.V. I chose not to show you....lol

And my favorite drink! I got to have my DP! Oh, and the chairs have new red fabric on them too. I'll show you a better picture later.
Thanks for your visit! Have a great weekend!

Kristen, I love the way you used the red pillow that you already had. You have such a beautiful home. it's fun to see where friends blog from. Your space is very cozy.
Hugs, Terrie

Kristen - just lovely! I am going shopping for a new sofa soon, too. Yours is simply lovely. I love the plaid office chair. Did you recover it? I know what you mean about the big black hole, a.k.a. big screen TV. My DH has one too. ugh! Hope your weekend is going well. Hugs, Barb

Love your room. I like your new sofa and the colorful pillows look great on it. I have those same curtains in a room in my house.
Great place for you to blog.

Your new sofa looks fabulous!!

love your house and that is my favorite drink too.. mishelle

Kristen, your new couch is very pretty, and it looks really comfy. Your pictures above the TV are so lovely, and I see your favorite drink is also one my favorites.

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen,
Oh it all looks so pretty!
Your new sofa is really beautiful and looks great with the Red pillows. Love the Red balls in the neat bowl too.

Your desk area is so cute!What a warm and relaxing looking room to blog in and relax.
I love it!

We have a big bonus room over the garage but I doubt I will ever show pictures of it on the blog.
It's just so cold looking to me. It's painted a light Blue and had lots of Black workout stuff, TV, stereo and kitty condo.
I have tried and just not made it comfy looking. Maybe I should re-paint it a bold bright RED! LOL!
Just a thought...It might make me motivated to work out more huh?

Have a blessed Sunday.
~Melissa ;)

tam said...

Hello Kristen! I love your red post! The Dr. Pepper craked me up-My husband is hooked on that stuff too-LoL! Your room you share is very nice for a "man room"! Hope you are having an awesome weekend!~Smiles~Tam!

tardevil said...

Like your new couch! Those palm tree prints & decorative balls would go great in my house! ;O) Love them! Have a great weekend.

Cynthia said...

Hi Kristen,
I love the mix of reds with the golds and greens. I really love your curtains and pillows, very pretty. Cindy

Paula said...

I really like your new sofa. I especially like how you put the ottomans in front of it instead of a coffee table.

I am envious of how neat your computer area is. I share mine with hubby and it is always piled with his junk.

Mamaoftwins said...

Everything is just beautiful. Love the new couch. Goes great with the red. I especially love the pictures hanging above the tv and the plaid chair. Very nice :)

Terri said...

What a beautiful room, Kristen. I've been deliberating on wall color for a while and your post helped me make up my mind. I have reds and golds in my room and wanted to go with a neutral tan on the walls. One of my top two picks is very similar to your wall color and I love it with the reds. Thanks for helping me decide.

Nancy said...

Hi Kristen,

I love your new sofa, The color of it goes perfect with the REDS! Everything looks gorgeous, as always!
Thank you so much for joining in the RED Flaunt. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Nancy

Angie said...

What a beautiful room and I love DP too!

Bo said...

Hi Kristen...Love, love, love your home! I'm so glad you remembered to flaunt even a day late...oops, I forgot it even though I had the button on my sidebar.. ;-) Bo

Marty said...

Hi Kristen! I would love to order some custom frames from you like the ones I spotted on Melissa's cute blog. Can you please email me and let me know if that is possible and all the details. Thanks you so much! Marty

Sooooo pretty Kristen! I adore your desk too, how cozy!! I love anything RED :)! and your curtains are fabulous too sweetie!

Momovthree said...

Very pretty. What a comfy, beautiful place to sit and blog! And it's nice to know we're not the only ones who end up tossing the pillows all over the floor. I want to add some to our new couch and my husband said, why bother, they just get pushed to the side! They sure look pretty though.

I love red. I used to have a family room that was painted roasted pepper. Loved it. I love your decorating style.

CoveredInCrafts said...

I love red. Thanks for sharing. I dig your blog!

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Oh Kristen! It's all so pretty. I love all the reds in your home you have shown us. I also loved seeing that little peek of your little puppy dog!

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Kristen, I love all your reds and you use them in such a nice way. Lovely.

Miss Janice said...

Love your new sofa and those pillows look awesome on it! Your blogging area looks so neat...right now I'm surrounded by stacks of paper and notes about my blog and all y'all's blogs!

Cathy said...

Kristen,
Thanks for stopping by today. I always love hearing from you. You should definately try the creme brulee...its soooo yummy.

You know I started blogging because of you. I was on RMS before Christmas and saw the pics of your beautiful home. I read about your blog and I was hooked. I love all your attention to detail and all the color you use in your decor...GORGEOUS!!! Thanks for all the inspiration and support.
Have a great weekend!!!
XOXO
Cathy

tam said...

Hello Kristen!
just wanted to pop in and wish you a fun weekend~Tam!:D

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Hi! I was hoping you had posted some of that beautiful warm weather. Have a great night!
Hugs, Terrie

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen,
You are so sweet! I'm glad you liked my new and improved bonus room. I need to get my booty in there and start working out now. As you can see I have no excuses. Being married to a Marine you would think I would work out all the time. LOL! I'm too busy blogging instead.

Your new kitty sounds great and sooo sweet! I think she found YOU and wants to live with you guys. I do hope you keep her. Chestnut was a stray five years ago when I found him on Christmas Eve in our backyard.
(a different house that backed up to woods)
He was a two pound kitten and the cutest lil' thing I had ever seen. He's never been outside since and doesn't miss it one bit.
He's spoiled rotten.
I really think we will get another Shih-stzu very soon.
Good luck with her.
Let me know how it ends up.

Have a wonderful week.
~Melissa :)
