As promised, I wanted to show you what I've been up to.
If you've been reading my blog for at least a week, then you know that I am on a quest this fall to cozy things up and bring in a more neutral palette. The above picture is what our family room has looked like for the most part. The pillows (which I still love) are being used in other rooms now. I brought in some new pillows, lamps (thank you Kirkland's), and recovered the ottoman.
Here is what it looks like now. Recovering the ottoman in a larger pattern made such a difference! The stripe pillows (because I have a weakness for stripes) worked perfectly. I also have a yellow and white pair of pillows on order that didn't make it in time :(. Once they arrive, I might revise the photo.
I think what I'm most excited about is the new lamps compliments of my friends at Kirkland's! Are they not gorgeous!? Such a huge improvement over my lowly Re-Store lamps with shades that were so small they looked like comb-overs rather than a full head of hair. Thank you Kirkland's!
When the cooler months roll in, I really love having cozy throws within arms reach. Mom is so gifted when it comes to knitting and has made us a couple of blankets that quickly became favorites.
I also love bringing natural elements any time of year. OK René, we get it. You like natural stuff. The giveaway details pu-leez!
