Living Room Changes

 The living room has a few changes and is going to get a few more. I was so enchanted with Betsy's house that I came home and started playing around. I made two new pillows out of fabric I had in my workroom and added an apple-green toile quilt over the back of the sofa. The mirror came back with a greyed out paint job and my favorite old dishes got a starring role over it.
The ruffles are back too...its easier with the dogs, less to wash.
This bamboo table I recently picked up at a sidewalk sale and it was intended to go to my son's college apartment. Searching the house for a better end table, I spotted it and decided I like it here just fine.

These seashell vases from Etsy are a bit of tramp art, and I think they are so sweet. 
An old romantic lamp in powder blue with a floral motif was found on Etsy too.
The blue lamp looks perfect with the blue chintz fabric.
I fiddled around with a few other areas too~I'll share them next time!

  5. I love that bamboo table. Love the dishes above the mirror too. I like that mirror in the space no matter what Betsy says. And I do love the ruffles on the sofa...especially because of dogs. New pillows are pretty. Lots of good stuff.

  7. I really like the mirror over the sofa, the height is good, and love the arc of plates over it. What is interesting is that little bamboo table, i wouldn't think i'd like it but i do. Something about that little table is really appealing in the space... i think because it's rustic, but i'm not sure... i never really noticed the basket, it's wonderful...

  18. The first thing I noticed was the blanket. Love that colour and it's so pretty and fresh in that room! I was wondering how many of the changes Betsy made would stay in place...
