Living room changes

Hi Friends...
  This room has been months in the making but it's finally done! Grab a cup of coffee and I'll show you around.
The wall over my couch has changed quite a bit in the past few years...it's a good thing I had left over paint because this wall looked like swiss cheese lol!
I totally forgot about these four old prints that I had...I took them to Hobby Lobby and had them framed.
My friend Ann On Sutton Place Designs made me these beautiful pillows. I ordered the green velvet fabric from Country Curtains and the cheetah print fabric came from Hobby Lobby...put them in the mail and Ann worked her magic! I love how they look together.

A few new vignettes...
Another change I am so happy I made was replacing my oval cherry coffee table with this trunk from Pottery Barn.
This pretty tray came from Pottery Barn also...I love the antique mirror it has on the bottom of it.

Here's the new scone that matches the dining room chandelier you can see here
How sweet is this little pillow...another pretty creation by Ann!
 Looking through the french doors in my dining room.

 This hand knotted rug has to be my favorite addition to this room! It was a little pricey but worth every penny!
I love how this room is finally starting to get a collected over time look.

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a great week!
