After a long time, I've redone the living room. I have always been in love with neutrals but after my trip to Paris, I know this love is ever lasting! Though our living room has always had a neutral scheme, it was time to update a few things like the coffee table, the cushions and the lamp shade.
Lately I have been obsessed with painters drop cloth and typography…and pottery barn! Did you know pottery barn ships to Australia? But it was way cheaper to make these myself.
And my new lamp shade cover made out of… you guessed it -
This crown was found on my travels to Cassis, France. It was tucked away in a corner in an antique shop. I love the rusty patina on it.
A gorgeous cherub from Venice
Perfect addition for Valentine's Day decor…a scented clay cherub playing the flute from Paris hanging on a huge antique mirror which hopefully one of these days I will figure out how to hang on the wall. It weighs 25 kgs and if you have any suggestions on how I could accomplish this mammoth task without breaking the wall, please.. please.. please… let me know.
The table is a recent find. It was in a dilapidated condition when I found it. But with a little love, paint and elbow grease…it's brand new again! I gave it a faux rust table top and it looks so industrial. I'll post photos of the coffee table makeover soon.
I hung three La Maison Jolie distressed photo frames on the walls and we are done!
So there you go… my updated living room.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back in a few days with a small update on the master bedroom.
