Stained oak strips were also installed in each of the door openings to the bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, and closets. They were the most expensive part of this project.
Well, while we're in the living room, I'll show you how I decorated for spring.
Last year I made these pillow covers for spring. My intention was to use them to brighten up the room and pull out the soft aqua color to use as an accent. Not a color one would normally use to go with my burnt orange sofa, but it works because of the pillows.
Next to the sofa I used a vintage egg basket to hold bright and cheerful spring-colored eggs.
On the other end of the credenza is a white tulip arrangement in aqua Ball jars that I shared in more detail in a previous post.
On another wall, next to the TV armoir are more touches of soft aqua in the form of a sweetly nested bird and a solitary candle.
Then on the mantle to continue with a touch of spring, I changed out the framed print, added aqua candles, another Ball jar with tulips, and a small glass pedestal container of vintage aqua buttons.
Thus ends the tour of my living room and my longest drawn out project. I miss the warmth of the carpet, especially since it was such a cold winter, but I love how they look and the richness of the wood. I have a few rag rugs around the room, but haven't decided yet if I will purchase an area rug for the center of the room. For summer, I think it'll stay as is and revisit the rug decision when winter rolls around again.
Thanks so kindly for coming by to visit.
