Does anyone else feel like "Spring Cleaning" after Christmas? I love Christmas and all our decorations but I also am always ready to take everything down, do a good cleaning, and start fresh for the new year. I pretty much took down the tree right after Christmas and our living room has been like this ever since. We are loving it.
I brought down my grandmother's side tables to flank the couch and the lighting situation is much better now and it's much more functional having them to put "stuff" on/in.
The quilt on the couch was a handmade wedding gift- on of my very favorites. I love the colors as you can see we chose to use it for inspiration around the room. The pillow covers are from here with the front covered in Williamsburg Chippendale Fretwork fabric in Mocha.
Another pillow from H&M:
This book, by one of my favorite bloggers, was not only a thoughtful Christmas gift from my MIL, it also looks great as decor. And I'm super excited about these Potterybarn Emma mugs I found at a great disacount home store, the start of my dream dinnerware collection. If I would have registered for china for my wedding, this is what I would have chosen.
This cute little tray was a birthday present to myself last week from Tai Pan Trading Co. I was on the lookout for one and knew it would work perfectly.
I also added some new fun artwork to the kitchen/dining area using frames I had on hand and these free printables.
I hope you have a wonderful 2015! So far, things are off to a good start for us!
