Living Room Refresh with Cottage Style
The “cat” will play! We all need a break sometimes, don’t we?My wonderful mother took the kids for a few hours on New Year’s Day. With hubby working, I started my “free time” with a trip to my Starbuck’s for a decaf, a cheese and fruit treat and of course a cupcake that I didn’t have to share.. with anyone. It was a great time to do a living room refresh with cottage style. Then I took a few hours, by myself, to get the house back in shape. I started in my entsy-weensty living room. And it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t use the opportunity to completely rearrange things.
It felt great to bring in a fresh new look after the holiday glitz. I left my pomegranate wreath up…I kind of like it for a bit of color.
Say bye-bye to the paisley fabric on that $20 chair. I have a luscious tawny brown to put on it to make it look fresh and new and cottagey.
And I didn’t want to put away my flameless candles yet; so I grouped them on a tray on my coffee table. I love how decorating by grouping things like candles looks so expensive but it so inexpensive.
And put some shredded paper in my favorite nest basket but I am not sure what to put inside of it yet. I love the look of shredded book pages. Books themselves are so great to decorate with. I love this project for repurposing books.
I brought out the moss to freshen up the room, I knew it wouldn’t last long.
Then yesterday I noticed this on the floor…. hmm…. I think some mice have been doing some playing themselves! Busted.. ! I am going to look for the little, green fingers!
