In my last post I shared how we finally finished and installed
a mantel on our family room fireplace.
I have been making some smaller changes as well so I though I would
show you a tour of how the room looks now. It's mostly just accessories and
little tweaks here and there that are making this a room I am much happier with.
I finally found some checked pillows in my favorite shade of blue. I have been
looking for pillows like these forever and I'm so happy I finally found them.
I just love checks and to me, they really embody the cottage style.
The long wall behind the love seat is always a challenge for me.
I knew I wanted to use my old window but I needed more to fill in the large space.
I finally came up with this arrangement (after much trial and error) using things I already had.
I really wanted something interesting and a little different to look at.
A new lamp on my round side table gives off so much more light than the lamp
I had there before. We really needed that in this room and it makes such
a difference at night and on gray Ohio days.
Looking past the lamp, you can see this little arrangement on the wall.
I think the corner by the fireplace looks kind of sweet with the stool, old
books and rustic pitcher.
Below you see the wall with the required big black TV.
I struggle with what to put on the walls next to it. Sometimes I kind of drive myself crazy
trying to come up with a solution for a problem area when I should just say it's good enough.
Also, you can see how this room flows with the entryway and kitchen.
Thanks so much for taking my little tour.
Now I'm going to refill my coffee cup and enjoy a little snack.
Have a great weekend!
