Hope you all are enjoying the day. It's absolutely gorgeous here ... I have *no* business being indoors, let alone playing on the computer!
So, I'm taking you into our sitting room today. Some of you may remember that it used to look like this:
It was a yummy metallic chocolate brown (Ralph Lauren Metallic paint in Lush Brown), which I absolutely loved. However, because the furniture in there is dark, the room began to close in on me.
After: I painted the walls BM Manchester Tan, switched out the furniture, the rug and window treatments.
The chairs and ottoman are from the great room (which also has a new look). I've ordered natural colored slipcovers for the chairs ... hope they work. And, a smaller jute rug replaced the larger, darker one we had. I like having more of the wood floor exposed:
I found this silver tray at a local *ha-uge* antique store called B&B:
I've moved things around in the bookcase and have added a few Fall touches there, as well. Love the vintage Tequila bottle (also found at B&B):
A baby white pumpkin is perched on a nest of shredded paper which all sit on top of cute bowl I just bought at a friend's awesome gift shop called Crazee Birds:
Fun textured pitchers (and, yes ... a-NOTHER bird plate). I also lightened some of my books up by wrapping them in painter's paper (from Lowes):
This fancy mirror once *lived* in the dining room, but has since moved here:
And, a fun find from Home Goods:
We're really enjoying the new look in our sitting room, especially in the afternoons when the sun pours in through the windows.
Well, I hope you have a wonderful day! I'm off to finish up the dining room:
