Living Room Update Part 2

Hey!

My house is surrounded by woods and sometimes, taking a picture inside can be problematic.  This morning, the sunshine peeked through the clouds and I took this picture quick while the getting was good. : )

The painted beams really make the ceiling soar.  The room feels so spacious.  We’re very pleased with the results.  What do you think?  I’m still contemplating the ceiling fan.  Living in the South, ceiling fans are beneficial on our warm days and truly help lower a power bill but aesthetically, they’re not pretty as a light fixture.

While the paint can, ladder, and drop cloths were still out, Honey Do kept painting and did the kitchen sitting area, too.

I’m also showing off my latest addition and purchase for the living room.  I bought it at a store in town.  Many of you have probably bought their products through West Elm and other retail centers.  They’ve been a wholesale store only for years but this fall, they opened their very first retail store.  Check out At West End.

What else have I been doing?  Sewing slipcovers.  I’m beginning to see the end.  I only have the sofa left to finish.   My target for completion is Thanksgiving.  I’ll share more in days to come.

Are you scratching your head and wondering where I’m going style wise with my house?  Or, are you thinking, ‘wow, that’s colorful’ with eyebrows raised and skewed?

Blessings,

Mimi

    • Thanks Ann! No! I didn’t make it — I bought it At West End at Renaissance Shopping Center in Ridgeland. It’s hand tied recycled cotton made in India.

  1. I love it!! It looks so soothing, and the splash of color from the rug will be awesome! I don’t think I would ditch the fan, but maybe change out the light shades. The shades on the fan are very 1980’s, and there are so many incredible shades available. Just a thought. Can’t wait to see it finished.
