Revisiting the living room

I've shown this room a couple of times since my mom gave me some of her furniture, after she moved, but since then, there's been a few minor changes.

I'm not sure what the deal is with the paint color in there, but depending on what time of day or what angle I take a photo, it's always changing. The picture above shows it being darker than in real life, but pretty close.

If you remember this room before, you'll notice a chair missing. I felt it was too crowded, so... poof!... into another room it went.

See what I mean about the color? 

So weird!

I found this table at a local antique store recently.

This is the part I fell in love with:

Bubba still loves his perch :)

Great grandma's lamp and some pictures of Alex, Annie and my nephews when they were small.

The mantel decor has been changed up a bit, but I'm not sure I'm loving it.

That plant doesn't seem happy with it either ;)

Looking towards the dining room, you'll see the biggest change.

I was reading something about Bunny Williams and she recommended having something in your living room that will make you use it. 

I'm not a tv in the living room kinda gal (it's in the den), so my desk was moved in here and the library piece was moved into the library.

Makes sense, huh? ;)

On top of that, she has a desk in her living room, so if it's good enough for her, it's certainly good enough for me!

The chair belonged to my friend's mother in law and she gifted me with it.

Hi Sharon! :)

I think the desk suits the space better.

Although, I'm thinking of selling that file cabinet. 

I really love it, but it just feels like too much to me and I don't have anywhere else to put it.

I know it doesn't look like I use this desk at all, but I do.

Trick photography ;)

Happy belated Autumn, everyone!
