After much looking, planning, and waiting, I am finally the new owner of my most favorite "reading/accent" chair -- the ARIEL (doesn't it look like a seashell to you?). And, since my chair was finally in my living room, I couldn't help but begin to start the redecorating process for our entire living room.
My first start -- hanging my Vintage Crush frames as a collage-type picture wall. (Overlook the blank frames...they bother Katie, too...but I'm trying to decide WHICH pictures I want to print for each frame.) Since my living room is also the place where most of my in-home studio sessions and/or appointments, I thought it was also the perfect place to share different ways to decorate your home with the photographs I take! I'm not finished with this wall, so you'll see it again hopefully in the near future, as a completed wall...but it's started...and that's good enough for me!
Just in case you wanted to see it...here's a better view of my new favorite chair :-) I'm still looking for the perfect side table to go with it. But doesn't my awesome Alexa's Closet bucket work perfectly beside the chair?! It's our "book" holder (until I use it for newborn/infant photography sessions).
My living room color inspiration... L.O.V.E!
And, the start of the wall decor above our couch -- my recent painting + plus my fun new distressed wooden frame. I loved these birds when I found them...and my painting reminded me of branches...so I put them together (but I'm still trying to decide if that's where the birds will live). Either way, there is still a LOT of wall space here...any ideas? I'm still working on this area... But I was thrilled to find these awesome throw pillow finds on clearance at Ross recently...the PERFECT shade of orange...and I have one more the perfect shade of turquoise (that sits in our rocker/recliner).
And a small, but fun addition to a living room table are these old camera replicas -- found and purchased for $1.07 total! Can't beat that price...especially for a photography lover's decor :-)
I still have lots of work to do...but here's our start of our redecoration journey! I can't wait to show you more as I get more completed!
