I have been so busy with the girls' room and the ensuing mess it created throughout the house, that everything else has been seriously neglected.
I did try something new in the living room on a whim and it totally fixed the awkward furniture arrangement I had in there. I put the couch in the corner on the diagonal, a la designer Vicente Wolf, and it opened up the room so much I could not believe it.
The canvases came of the photos Luis took, and I am loving them in the corner behind the couch on these antique windows from the old house.
They look amazing and I think the windows really frame them nicely.
I added some hydrangea blooms and more vintage brass accessories.
I only had 12 blooms this year between the two vanilla-strawberry hydrangeas and the new limelight one I bought back in the summer. I love these because they will dry so beautifully. The leaves are actually from the mophead bushes which did not produce one bloom this year thanks to a late freeze.
I also did something else that made a huge difference in this room.
Any ideas what it is?
