As per my previous post
, I spent some time reconfiguring my living room yesterday. I love to mix things up a bit when a new season rolls around and Autumn is the best time to draw hearth-side. Since we spend a lot of time in this room, I wanted to add more seating so we could all get cozy and enjoy the fireplace through the holidays. I brought in some furniture from other rooms to create a more intimate feel. I also wanted to throw a little red into the mix, so I added some throw pillows, a red lamp and some red art - all of which I already had in the house. Here are my before and after shots:
And here are some more photos of the new room. Please forgive my not-so-awesome photography. I'd love to be able to take better interior photos, but I think it just comes down to that fact that I have a junky camera. Someday I'll have a camera with different lenses and fancy settings, but until then, my photos will possess that unmistakable cheap blur. The coffee table below is part of a wicker set that was just gifted to us. I was looking for a round coffee table to suit this space, so until I find just the right thing, this is my funky little filler.
|My only new addition: I picked up these Moroccan lanterns on sale at Pier 1 Imports.|
I replaced the blue barrel back chairs in the dining room with the afore-mentioned wicker set that some friends were giving away. I love their garden-esque look in our front window. There is good light and I like to sit here in the mornings with my coffee (and usually a nursing baby as well.)
