So last weekend Sara decided we needed to revamp our living room. I know, I know, the one that was just in House & Home Magazine. But she’s the boss! For all of those who wonder if poor Sara gets any say in the decorating, here you go!
She really wanted to try having the sofa in the bay window (secretly I think it’s because that’s how it was in her parents’ house). I like it there too, but I’m not sure about all of those chairs in this arrangement.
The coffee table feels a little lost this way – Sara would like to try another sofa or a two-seater perpendicular to the sofa in the window, which I agree, would hold the room a bit better. The mantle was lightened up severely because she was getting a little tired of my many tableaux, so it’s just candles and vintage bottles with ferns at the moment. Lighter for summer. Or at least the moment. In person, the room feels airier and more open than before. I’m sure we’ll continue to switch things up and layer up again as the weather turns, but for now it was fun to try.
One little corner I do really like is above with the burlap skirted table (picked up in Maine) and the shells and fern and pottery etc. It’s a nice little spot. We’ve had this set up for a week now, but with the weekend just around the corner, who knows what will change next!
