Hi Friends! I throught I would show an updated post of my living room. Here is a shot of the room last spring:
Toward the end of last summer we painted the walls a darker khaki (Harvest Brown by Behr), which makes this large space feel a little more cozy...
One of my dear friends questioned the front hall light fixture, thinking it's style did not necessarily "blend" with the rest of my stuff. I love the fixture, though. The area rug is from Ballard; loveseat from Ethan Allen...and I have previously posted about my antique wingback chairs (here)...I have two opposite the loveseat...
I like to use the piano top kind of like a mantle. I really try to keep it relatively simple, but it often becomes a spot for favorite objects or flowers...
The prints were free from the Pacific Coast Triathlon-I just put them in substantial frames. Antique Japanese fishing floats in the silver bowl, and IKEA colored glass vases are friends with a giant orchid that I bought myself for my birthday (it's huge; only part of it is shown here and it has been blooming since early November).
The little ocean giclee is by Paulette Adams.
I have been considering painting the inside of the front door white. Any thoughts?
I have really been loving my new entry mirror... and that long spikey looking thing in the silver pot on the antique dresser is an amarilis about to bloom...
Below is a down pillow that my mother made for me with some fabric that I purchased. I simply drew out a sketch of how I wanted it to look and she replicated it beautifully. I wish I had the patience and spatial skills to sew like she does.
Thanks for stopping by!linking:
