living room

Our living room is the text book definition of 'in progress'. I am forever changing the furniture layout, the pictures on the wall, even the rugs.

This is how it looked when we moved in...

Hello peep show! Talk about letting in the light...and the neighbors, and anyone else who happens to drive by. Aside from that "openness", and the ever present pink walls, there was really not much to complain about in this room.

Here is where we are today.

  1. huh, I am the first person to make a comment on this lovely, warm and revitalized space? Wowzers! You need to re-post this as a new post tomorrow and get more followers to see it! It's great!

  2. I just signed up to follow your blog. The room feels warm and friendly. I have the same brass pineapple candlestick (without a candle). I don't think I will ever put a candle in it but I sure have used it in an assortment of arrangements. Nice mix of pattern and color. Can't wait to see it with your reupholstered sofa.

  7. Where did you get that coffee table? Absolutely love it!

    1. I got it at an antique shop in Sarasota FL for a steal. Although all that sea air had done a number on it and it was RUSTY. It could still use some work but I love its patina.

  8. I just love this space. So chic. xo Kristin
