Living Room Changes

It's been a lot of fun shopping the house and making changes.  I've actually taken quite a few things down from the walls, and stuff I had out before Christmas, I kept put away.  Trust me my house is still "full" of stuff, it's just less full.  I think it's a vain attempt at making the place feel bigger.  Not sure if it's working.  We'll see what hubby says on SATURDAY when he gets home!
Sometimes I am tempted to look into an interior design degree online to get even more ideas.

This is the Living Room before Christmas...

I love this wall of Barn photos, but I haven't really happy with the set up on top of the trunk. 

Apparently I haven't taken too many pics of the downstairs since last MARCH!  lol 

I've overloaded the couch with pillows, to the point where you can't sit on it...hmmm should re think that.

I wish this was a proper mantel.  It's so hard to decorate.  Like the make shift wall?

I love the pictures hung over the tin door, and the tin door, but I'm just not feeling this area either.

The Living Room today....

Love these new canvas pillows!  However, they took a month to be delivered! can be slow.

This is my favorite lamp ever, wish I had mercury glass lamps in every room!  (wish they didn't cost so much too!)

I really like this much better.  My wine bucket makes me pretty happy, I would love to collect trophies, but they are pretty pricey.


All I changed was the one mirror.  I took it off the mantel and put it on the trunk, but this new HUGE mirror really makes a statement. 

Still wish I had a normal mantel.

The pillows were downsized, so we could actually use the couch.  The old tray was ruined by a child and a full glass of water...sigh.

I miss the tray, but wouldn't trade my wooden bowl for it.  I guess I should thank the kid that ruined the tray?  lol

The living room definetely feels lighter to me, still working on the bigger.

Love the changes! Every now and then I have to mix stuff up and even start with a blank slate.

I love the changes. Changing the dresser to blue made a huge difference to me. So much lighter and brighter in that corner! And the mirrors on the mantel are exactly what that space needed. Great job!!

The mirror looks gorgeous on the mantel! I'm so glad we found that one! And I'm way jealous of the pillows! Totally worth the wait!

I love what you did with the mantle. the couch looks much better too! I love pillows too and have to restrain myself from doing the same thing to my couch. I'm so happy for you that your love is coming home tomorrow. That is so exciting!!! I hope it is a wonderful reunion.

Really like the changes you made! Love the new color on the dresser & that tablerunner on the trunk is great!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
