Happy New Years Eve.......Eve! Do you have any big plans? One thing that is nice, now that my husband has retired from firefighting, is that he is home on all the holidays. So, with that, you would think we would be out painting the town. Nope! We're old fuddy duds I guess. We'll bring in the new year here at home in front of the television like we always do.
Now that Christmas decorations have been taken down, I found myself wanting to make a few changes to my decor. Don't you find that happening to you sometimes too? Usually that means some new accessory placements etc. But, this time, I went big! I had my husband help me move some big pieces of furniture around.
I think what sparked the changes was my new french style chandelier that I got over the holidays. I shared it on Instagram already but haven't shared it here yet. Here is the new look for my family room.
I moved the super gigantic grey painted armoire that used to sit in the corner beside the fireplace to my sitting room. I will share that another day. In it's place, I moved my french style clock in the corner. I like how the brown color picks up the color in the chandelier.
I also pushed the sofas up closer to the fireplace so they make the gap where the armoire was not so great. The clock is much smaller than the piece of furniture that was there.
I was lucky to have a lot of sun flooding this room when I took these pictures. It had been raining and dark earlier this week.
Here is a close up of the chandelier that I got. I love it so much! It stands out nicely against the white furniture and white walls. I got it from Overstock.com while on sale.
I had to be careful not to get too big of a chandelier since my ceilings aren't vaulted. So many of these types of chandeliers are huge. This one is smaller in size and works well for the space.
Now, we may need to downsize our TV cabinet to something smaller. Not sure yet. It seems a bit big compared to the clock on the other side. I like how my fireplace is no longer squished between two big pieces of furniture though.
I'll be sure to share the changes I've made in my sitting room with the armoire in there next. I'll be sharing it on INSTAGRAM too.
Hope you all have a safe and happy New Years Eve and Day!
