Top 2 Tuesday - Places in your home

This weeks Top 2 Tuesday is:

2 favorite places in your home

We have lived in our condo for over 3 years now and we are just now getting around to decorating every room.. yes its taken that long - the basement just wasn't an area that i found a necessity to be decorated

Over Labor Day weekend Justin and I went and picked out this couch for the basement. We have the worlds tightest corner to get down in the basement - so it was necessary to find something that broke down into sections... and we both fell in love with this couch
its huge, and we can shove the ottoman in the corner and it becomes a queen sized bed
the past few weekends we have brought the tv from the bedroom and placed it on the book shelf and so we can watch 2 football games at one time... who needs picture and picture when you can have side by side tvs?
clearly we need a lot of decorating work to be done in this room!

tv console - mounted or tv stand?
pillows [i'm hoping black and white...which could totally change!]
wall decor [hopefully buckeyes/browns/49ers/blue jackets]
perhaps a corner bar?
so many decisions!!!!
trust me - ya'll will know when I make a decision on what to do - or with any updates!

my other favorite room in my house that is almost fully decorated is my spare bedroom
i love how simple it has been decorated - and because everything is decorated in black and white, and the only thing in the room that is green is the walls - if i ever want to change the color of the room i just need a new paint color!
i stole some of these pictures from a past post

since the past post, my sister suggested that I put scrapbook paper in the frames for an inexpensive fix - thanks alli!
the bedding is from HomeGoods and the pillows are from Target [the polka dotted one] and the front one is from Kohl's
the two end tables and shelf are from Ikea
speaking of the shelf - it is certainly a work in progress! I try to pick up black and white items when I see them and I am out... much easier said than done! i thought it would be an easy project that would quickly be complete after a trip or 2 to HobLob [boy was I wrong!]

and the tv....

So the basement is my new favorite hang out area in the house - and i just like how the spare bedroom is decorated!

What are your favorite areas in your house?

Head on over to Taylor's blog, I would love to see your house!

I love the bedroom! I'm not a huge 'green' color person, but the decorating in the room goes nicely with that one.

Love, love, love! I love our sectional and your looks so comfy! And I love the green, black, and white. I'm doing something similar with my office but with purple instead of green :)
