So I was hosting a breakfast meeting the other day as I mentioned.
The ladies gathered in my living room with the wonky candelabra and other things I love.
As I sat there, in a spot I never sit in…
I was trying my best to pay attention, but kept thinking “the light is really good this morning for photos”.
“Wonder if the light will be as good ever again…”
I had to shoo those blogger thoughts out of my head fast & say some stuff during the meeting…
So I did, the ladies left and the good light was gone with them. Like the tide on the shore. To return, but not for awhile.
It was back today at the very same time and it was as good – Southern California light is predictable that way I guess.
So out came the camera & tri-pod. No fancy lens yet, as I am waiting to treat myself, but the light was lovely, so I snapped away.
As every room in my house, as am I myself, my living room is a work in progress constantly evolving.
It is a long room with a very high beamed ceiling. So I have the furniture pulled in, away from the walls to make it more intimate.
It has two accent walls painted Marblehead Gold. It is a warm elegant yellow that I love.
The room has layers & I want more layers – layers of things I love.
Layers take a room from furnished to decorated. Layers of things you love, make that decorated room yours.
I want to add a rug under the thrift store coffee table I sprayed silver.
It is huge in size. It’s size brings together the sofa, love seat & ottoman, but it needs something fabulous underneath. Another layer…
I am considering an animal skin rug in whites & tans, but not sure how I feel about that.
It is nice hanging out in here with you.
Want to play a decorating game?
1. Can you pick out the one thing (there is only one ) I don’t really like in the room? Hint – it is a space filler until I find the perfect something.
2. Can you find the three things from Ballard Designs in the room?
3. Can you figure out what I want to change, but haven’t because it is /they are so soft?
Looking forward to your answers!
In the meantime, I’ll just straighten these candles…
