After putting the Christmas decorations away, I took the opportunity to rearrange a couple of things and fluff the living room just a bit. It's been a while since I had updated my Home Tour, so I snapped some photos and thought I'd share those with you today.
I've always, always wanted a pair of those big concrete lions for my front porch. Until I find them some day, I came across these little guys at Home Goods that I couldn't resist. They got a new paint job, of course. I recycled the pots that I used on my Christmas Mantle and made a little faux orchid arrangement in them for Spring.
Here you can see a little peek of the chandy in the breakfast nook. I decided to paint it gold to coordinate with the new pendants in the kitchen. I *think* I like it, but the jury is still out. ;)
I moved the black dresser that used to be between the leather recliners over to a blank spot next to the bar. I've always felt like that spot was a little bare. For Like Ever was there for a while, but I've actually changed up the artwork there since this photo. I'm using that one in my bedroom at some point. I also took the opportunity to bring in a pair of blue and white lamps that I've been using in the bedroom (vintage Ethan Allen Craigslist find- yay!).
In place of the dresser, I used my new-to-me sofa table. I'm liking the shallower but longer footprint between the chairs, and the baskets underneath are good storage for the newspaper, magazines, and throw blankets.
Last summer I shared with my Instafriends this fabulous drapery panel that I found while thrifting, and I finally got it turned into some new pillows. I wish I new something about the fabric. I've never seen it before but it's really good!
One other fun new addition, I scored this brass tray table from CL right after Christmas. The base was wood and really pretty, but not spectacular. I tried painting it white, but it just didn't work. On to old faithful... Meadow Green! I'm in love with this little corner now, although I plan for that table to eventually end up in my Master Bedroom (makeover plans in the works!).
I also needed some fresh photos for another reason, which I can't wait to share with you tomorrow! I'll be posting at a different time than normal, so I'll share my amazing news with you tomorrow evening (hint, it might just rhyme with Moss & Jane!!!). Hope to see you then!
P.S. Did you notice anything different? I've been tinkering with my blog design a little bit. I still have a couple of things that will change in the next few days, but I kinda love the new look. Colorful... stripes... black and white... it feels like ME! Hope you like it too!
