It's a new month, a new year, and guess what...I rearranged the living room again.
It's not much of a difference, I just did some pillow swapping, and the side chairs are now pushed back together again.
I couldn't help it...don't they just make the cutest couple?
We decided to bring the storage ottoman back into the living room, where it could actually serve a purpose again. It wasn't doing much in the bedroom with Trent's clothes stacked in piles on top of it.
Would return back to his former home.
Don't think I won't bring back the colorful pillows when spring/summer rolls back around. 'Cause I totally will. But right now I'm sticking with mostly muted colors for winter.
I did, however, find a place for the Emily Rickard pillow that Trent got me for Christmas:
Now there's a nice little pop of color we can admire while we watch TV.
The couch hasn't changed much. Same spot. And it's still sporting those lovely ruffly pillows I got from TJ Maxx this winter. I love them! Notice my new owl vase, also a gift from Trent, that's sitting on the floor in the corner. See the little guy? Still have to decide what I want to do with him in regards to a more permanent location.
And the award for cutest couple goes to..... :)
It is a small space, but it is cozy and intimate, and I think it's all we need.
It's been fun to see it evolve, especially since we started out here - (Gutting the room in 2010, to 2011):
And here's where it's at now in 2014...
I know I've said it before, but it is still my favorite room in the house.
