Our room: still lots of pillows on the bed and stuff on the nightstands, but a new frame over the bed that I got my dear husband for Christmas ~ it says "Always Kiss Me Goodnight" ~ a sentiment I highly endorse. And the lamps are closer to the bed.
The big and best change is the sitting room ~ little room off the kitchen that used to be the dining room before we added the great room. It is quite a popular place and there was never enough seating so after much ado we got a corner sofa from Ikea this week which is PERFECT.
It was hard for me to give up the big round table I had in there with my cute decorations on it, but the seating is obviously way more functional. The next problem was getting some lamp light without any tables. (I really don't like overhead lighting, so I must have a lamp in every room) I had this cute white floor lamp but it needed a new shade. I finally found the perfect size and shape but it was white - boring. So today I downloaded instructions from the internet and covered it in blue fabric! I also have some red trim I was going to put on it, but I'm undecided about whether I want the trim or just like it blue. I'm open to opinions!
I wanted to get a more open space feeling in the star room so I took out the Ikea chair that was in there and put this small rocker which was red, but I spray-painted it navy. I love spray paint!
As I look as these pictures I realize I'm still the "cluttery decorator" I have always been, because I love too many things. But I really did get rid of some things and I feel more streamlined and organized.
So those are my changes and they are fun and feel good.
