Thanks so much for all the nice compliments on my sitting room makeover. I am still very happy with it. Every morning, I come downstairs and notice how much bigger and brighter it looks now.
Something I've discovered that works well for my house is the use of neutral colors that flow from room to room. For years, I had bright colors of red, yellow, and apple green. I loved it at the time. However, I don't live in a large open floor plan style home. So looking back at those colors in my home, it made it feel even smaller and a bit cluttered. I'm liking the restful changes and adding more texture rather than color.
Here are a few more random changes that I've made.
First, I decided to remove the area rug from under my dining room table.
It was a dark brown traditional style rug and was really too small for the space. So, I passed it on to a friend of ours. It now has a new home!
Remember in my sitting room, I had to switch chests? The one that was originally in there moved to the family room. That was really a blessing in disguise. It has the most wonderful molding on the side that you never saw when it was in the sitting room.
See what I mean?
Now, I can enjoy the whole piece, not just the front.
I moved my rose oil painting in here too.
It used to hang above the wall hutch.
Since I moved a chair out of my family room into the sitting room, I needed to replace it. So, I painted the chair that was in the kitchen (not being used) a nice white. Remember, it used to be black.
I also never showed you this awesome pillow I found at the consignment store I consign with.
It is a Ralph Lauren pillow! The cover comes off for cleaning (bonus!). It came with a soft down filled insert too.
It didn't cost me anything. I used some of my credit I had with them. Love that!
Finally................you KNOW I had to do it!
Des, this one's for you........I changed up my secretary just one day after I posted it for you all to see! Ha! I'm not alone in doing this. Did I mention names?
I decided I wanted more white on the shelves, so I replaced some of my plants with monogram plates. Ahhhh......much better now.
Well, that about wraps up the changes I've made around here. I'm sure it won't be the last time either.
Thanks for stopping by!
