We finally figured out how to dress the bay window and even thought it isn't even close to our original plan, we really like how the cornus boxes turned out. Happy accidents.
We also go a new couch. I've been making pillows to add a little color and make it blend in the room a little more.
We have this huge tall (vaulted) wall behind the couch that we have no clue what to do with. we'd like to maybe put up some shelves (floating?) but I have a lot of shelves in the house. I also have a lot of pictures I want to put up. Before I had pictures all over in a million different frames and I need to figure out how to make it not look so random. I do have this great portrait of my my that my cousin Nina did that I want to put up but we just can't figure out where.
I also want to do a little spot to show off my quilts. I have this antique sewing machine from one of my great grandmothers, and two different quilts that were started by two different grandmothers and that I later finished, plus some that I have just done on my own.
So we want the room to look chic and put together, but still look like us. the problem is that Jon and I are more, cluttered and comfy than chic and put together. And we have all this stuff that we want to go in the room that doesn't all really go together. I don't really like to just put stuff up either. I like for everything I use to decorate a room to mean something to me. I'm sure it will all come together eventually, I just wish I knew how to put it all together.
