At Home With Katie Shelton

Katie Shelton's darling living room via A Beautiful MessOur next guest in our “At Home With” series is our very own Katie Shelton! Katie is here to share her adorable living room with us today! Love the family portrait in the centerAdorable little reading corner“We moved into our sweet little 1930s-built home in mid-Missouri about 6 months ago. When we walked into this house, it was love at first site. The house was the right size, in a great neighborhood, and full of charm. I definitely had my decorating woes when we first got here, going from a tiny box of a living room to a long, spacious area. Now that we are settled, I can’t help but chuckle at myself for being so intimidated by it. This space is perfect for all of our friendly get-togethers, mama/kiddo dance parties, and snuggling under covers with books. We spend a lot of happy time in this space.”
White walls and doorKatie Shelton's darling mantleGorgeous vintage floral chair“Not only does our living room play double duty with two different seating areas, it also opens up into the dining room. Keeping this in mind, I’ve done my best not to fill the space with too many things. It’s my nature to want to fill every corner with every cute this-n-that I find. But I know it’s more important to keep our room filled with lovely, functional items, so it doesn’t feel too cluttered.”

At Home With Katie SheltonAdorable vintage plastic-canvas cuckoo clock“I have two very favorite finds in this space: The vintage floral chair was a perfect addition to the living room and helps tie all the colors together. Plus, it’s a rocking chair. I mean, how could I pass up a vintage floral ROCKING chair in the prettiest pattern I’ve ever seen? My other favorite find is the giant yellow “S” over in the reading corner. I love pieces that are pretty different and distinct, and I think these two things add so much to our room.”

Love all the vintage details

Lovely paint by number pillowAdorable sheepskin chair“It’s been a fast 6 months for us, but I’m happy with how our home is coming along. I’m sure in another 6 months this room may change a bit, but it will remain kid-friendly and cozy. I love watching my girls climb on the furniture, pretending they are tight rope walkers or gymnasts. I love sitting in the fluffy rug and having snacks at the coffee table. I love reading a book in the corner or relaxing at the piano. It’s a really good space for our family, and I’m excited to see it evolve over the years.”

  • Beautiful! I completely relate – i constantly have to remind myself not to fill every corner.

  • I’m in LOVE with her living room! The bright white and all the natural light coming in from the windows… Wish I could do a living room swap 🙂

  • I totally understand the inclination to fill every corner with cute things! My boyfriend and I just bought our first home and I’m trying so hard to keep it more open and minimalistic. Beautiful space :o)

  • I love Katie’s living room! It feels so modern and fresh despite all the cute vintage finds. That floral chair is the best and works so well with all the white! But I also love the “clock”, the big S and the cute pictures so much. (: Thanks for the inspiration!
