As you know, nothing stays the same around here too long. One thing remains constant though. White slipcovers adorn most of my furnishings. I can't help it. It's just what I love. I decided I wanted a more balanced look using my slipcovered furniture in my family room. So, rather than having them flank the fireplace (that already had large pieces of furniture beside it) I moved them adjacent to the sofa instead. That meant I had to move the distressed chest of drawers out of the room entirely. It is now residing in the master bedroom. I really like it there.
With the furniture in new places, I made a few changes with the pillows and also the accessories on the coffee table and mantel.
Doesn't that always happen?
I even moved my bench in here to put in front of the fireplace. I draped a throw over it for softness.
The bench used to be in the dining room.
I'm liking the way the room feels more balanced now and the fireplace isn't so crowded. This is a challenging room to arrange furniture in due to the many doorways, windows and fireplace.
My mantel now has purple flowers and candles with crosses on them.
The green topiaries relocated to other places.
Everything I like to decorate with can fit in almost any room on the lower level. I like that it flows easily from room to room.
Yesterday was my husband's birthday too. We had a fun filled day of going to the pool, seeing a movie and going out to eat. Here is the birthday cake I made for him.
I am recovering today from all the activities! LOL!
Hope you all are having a great week so far.
Thanks for stopping by!
