Freshening up the Family Room

Hello everyone!

With the warmer weather we've been having, I added a few Spring touches to my family room.

On top of the fireplace mantel, more cherry blossom branches were brought in.



I wanted to continue the flowers in this room so everything would flow better.

On my round pedestal table, I changed out my feathers for some pussy willow branches and a flower arrangement.



At a consignment store, I found this vintage leather suitcase.


I placed it beside my chair.  I like the contrast of leather next to my slip covered chair.  The pillow on top adds texture and graphic interest.


I changed up my antique dresser a bit too.  I repainted the top white and changed the artwork above with this subway style art.  I love the quote!



  We are supposed to have a rainy weekend so I guess I'll be hanging out in here a lot then! 

Hope you all have a nice weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love your family room kelly, it's so cozy and peaceful. The painters came this morning to start painting my den...what a mess but I think it will be so worth it in the end.

Kelly I'm freaking out! Where is your GFC button? It says I'm no longer following your blog and you are one of my favorites. I can't find you and it took you off my blog roll too. Are you going to add it back on your sidebar? Please do!

Your spring touches look amazing.

Warmly, ~Melissa

You have a wonderful sense of style (it obviously runs in your family). What I love most about this room is that beautiful painting of the dog! I keep scrolling back up to look at it.
