I cannot believe how many times in the past couple years we have redecorated our great room. It’s the main entertaining room in our home, besides our kitchen, so having a welcoming and room that feels the way I want it to, has been a challenge for me. I know our ‘style’ is always evolving, but this is starting to feel ridiculous. The couches we purchased two years ago just would not hold it’s shape. My husband did not want to start a war with the local boutique where we purchased them, nor did he feel the manufacturer was listening to the issue. So we went to a big box store that we know would back their product up if such an issue occurred again. Sad to say, but I think that buying big items from well known stores and smaller items from boutiques is the way to go moving forward.
We purchased the Turner sectional from Pottery Barn. My family loves it! I, on the other hand am playing with ways to make this space my own by putting my own twist in here.
Relocating the Tillamook Cheese Crate I had never found a permanent place for and using it as a coffee table was a fantastic introduction to the room. I can’t have a large area rug in this area because of my three shih tzu’s ~ they like to leave a mark on any rugs, so I moved this one from our front entry and placed it here to see how this works out. I layered it with a faux sheepskin to give a little texture to the space. Pulling out our old canvas Restoration Hardware pillow covers to toss around on the couch makes this space a little more relaxed too. I found the lamps at Target this past week and simplified the sofa table vignette.
My faux fireplace is what I’m really working on this week, I just don’t know what to put above the mantle ~ any suggestions are appreciated!
I’ve relocated my two chairs that previously sat in my master bedroom sitting room. I love these chairs in just about any location around my home.
Also now using these rustic crates as a side table are working perfectly!
I stacked Rachel Ashwell books to place my lamp on and this old scale is available to use as a drink coaster…
I just wonder how many more times, I’ll be re-creating this room? For now, any mantle suggestions are welcome! xoxo, tracie
