So the search was on for a comfy tufted sofa with a higher back. Thankfully, the last store we went to had a set of tufted sofas that greeted us as we came in the door. They were a dark green, but I knew I could order them in a different fabric, so that is what I did. I ended up choosing a light, textured gray fabric that would be durable, easy to clean, and not show marks easily. Yet, it still has a light appearance. After five months I have to say I am very happy with my choice, they have held up very well and the fabric still looks great! I was very tired of straightening and washing my old white slipcovers, so I have really been enjoying having sofas that looks nice all of the time with no fuss!
Another piece we purchased from the same furniture store was this gorgeous map of England and Wales. I like personal pieces with meaning, and this one has that for me. As a child, I lived in England for four years, and some of my most favorite childhood memories are from there. I have a goal of returning there with my children for a visit, and this map is a reminder of that.
I also painted our coffee table that was originally a medium wood, with Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Pure White. I lightly sanded and used her clear wax for a protective finish. I am really loving the lightened look!
The fresh floral clippings are from my mother's large viburnum bushes in her yard. They are one of my favorite flowers and I wish they bloomed year round!
Thanks for stopping by to see the changes in our living room! I will post the other half of the room when it is finished soon, we got rid of our old giant TV armoire and found a new piece I am excited to share! I will leave a list of resources below.
