It was time....

Making changes around the blue cottage... 

I had the same living room furniture for 6 years... I was over it.. I wanted to take it up a notch and the love of my life loves the Pottery Barn/Restoration Hardware look... 

SO here is what I had before.... 




And here is the after ... It is a work in progress!  We just had furniture delivered so be kind I realize I have alot of fluff to do... 





On the hunt for colorful pillows, maybe burlap pillows or feedsack linen pillows, new lamps, floor lamp and a perfect rug to soften it up a bit. Black leather is hard to decorate around.. Love the smell of leather.. Smells heavenly in living area!! Comments & suggestions welcome... 

My camera is out so the new pictures of living taken with iphone aren't the best.. 

More to come.... See ya soon!

I think the leather smell is wonderful!!!
I don't have leather in my home...but The Honey would love a leather couch or chair...if it were in the budget.
Your love for old mirrors is something we share. I have several. I love them. Mine don't have wooden frames like yours though.
I'd say...some grain sack pillows would lighten the darkness of the couch and chair---and since you obviously like red, from your before photos...maybe grain sack with red lettering or stripes?

I'm sure what ever you put in there will look wonderful in your cottage...you home is lovely, and your style is too.

Valarie, you can't go wrong with leather pieces. Once you fluff and add a little of your cottage flair you'll love it.
