So I had a big game of shift the furniture in the living room. Ended up pushing the sofa closer into the corner and collecting all my pillows in one place. I like the way it all looks with the painting.
I totally adore my antique bronze West Elm lamp, favourite purchase for 2012! It sets off the gold framed animal lithographs perfectly, and is masculine enough to satisfy the Voice of Reason. Love all things West Elm as you know, was blown away by their store in Salt Lake City, great designs, great quality, and great price point.
Kelim rug is still lovely but a bit to small, what I really want is an oversized white cow skin rug but its definitely not in the budget.
Hmmm not liking how the rest of it looks just yet, this is clearly a work in progress. Please let me know if you have any great open plan living room lay outs, I need inspiration!!
I wonder if interior stylists move the furniture around all the time or if they just get it perfect first time. Perhaps they are more ruthless at editing,something that doesn't come naturally to me. Yet again I am wishing for a stylist to come and play in my house, and then teach me how to photograph it well.
Lots to learn in 2013.
