Some New Additions

Hi everyone, thank you so much for the sweet comments on the patio!  We sure are enjoying the outdoor space now. It’s like a whole other room to decorate! :)

Today I thought I would share with you all a few new things I’ve added to our living room.  Not huge changes or anything, but I thought they were worth mentioning. :)

So here’s the living room before my new additions…

See that lamp on the right?   Well it broke.  Well, the little knob that you turn to turn the lamp on and off broke a while back.  So I went back to Hobby Lobby and they let me exchange it.

I love the new curvy lamp much more, and it goes better with the other lamp in here.

I probably should paint the other lamp finial white though after seeing this picture. :)

Then I also picked up this cutie for $25 at Homegoods a month or two ago.

I love it, and some of you may hate it but that’s ok.  It’s just a fun little retro foot stool to use until we get a new ottoman.  It’s very convenient to just move this around wherever you are sitting too so you have something to prop up your footsies on.  Heck, maybe I’ll just buy a bunch a little ottomans and poufs and throw them around in the living room instead of having a traditional coffee table or big ottoman. Hmmm…

And lastly, here’s my favorite new addition right now (probably because it’s the most recent).

The throw blanket, not the pillow. Still looking out for a new pillow for the chair. But I LOOOOOVE this new blanket. And it was a splurge from Z Gallerie because it was $60.  But it was so worth it. Seriously.  It’s a light cotton knit and extremely soft. And perfect for summer!  It is their Grid Throw if you are interested.  It also comes in orange and I loved it too.  I’m a big believer in having a good quality throw now, especially since my others have been cheapies.

And here’s a shot where you can see all 3 of them together.

I love fun stuff!

And before anyone starts hatin’ about that picture being too high, I think I’m going to fix that soon.  Promise. :)

Are y’all working on any new additions?  Fill me in!  Why can’t I just leave a room alone and actually finish the other things I have going on??  Goodness.

  1. Lookin’ good, Emily! I’m loving that new throw — it matches the rug perfectly — and pops off the dark brown! You’ve got such great taste!

  2. I love how your room is coming together. I think family rooms are always changing because if y’all are anything like us we are ALWAYS in this room. The kids have a playroom, but our cocktail table makes a great place to build with legos or make a new artistic masterpiece.

  3. LOVE that new throw!!! Its perfect!! and I bet your little one love that foot ottoman. My kids are always climbing on ours.

  4. I love the throw. I want to buy one, but I can’t make up my mind between the aqua or gray one. Also, love the shape of the lamp.

  5. Charlene Jones says:

    Great job!
    And the ottoman… just the perfect finishing touch!
    Keep the ideas coming!

  6. Looks great! And I LOVE your rug. Very nice :)

  7. I love all your new items! The lamp is so chic and yet it compliments the warmth of the room so well. Your new throw is just the icing on the cake! I like the color and pattern, very nice. By the way what paint color is that on your walls? I really like it and think it would look nice in my tiny living room.

  8. I would imagine it’s because you can’t leave things alone that we all like to come visit. Your living room looks very nice.

  9. Gosh, is any room ever REALLY finished? I get bored and my taste shifts sometimes, so I”m perpetually “tweaking” my spaces. Keeps life interesting! Love the throw, btw. :)

  10. Looking good Emily! We’ve been working our way through our basement in recent weeks…so not fun, but will be well worth it in the end!

  11. WHAT? I LOVE that ottoman! SO CUTE! I would buy like 3 or 4 of them! And I love the throw! I love it all!!! Speaking of “new additions” ya know my blog is about to be FULL of them!!! AND I can’t WAIT to see y’all!!! YAY!!! WE ARE COMING HOME!!!!! :)

    • I know I’m so excited!!! Hopefully y’all will be here for Emma’s birthday? But if not who cares because Emma and Alice can be BFF’s now! :)

  12. I happen to love the ottoman too!

  13. I really like the wall arrangement above your sofa. I truly NEED some of those photo/accessory shelves!

  14. I found you via Thrifty Decor Chick … and I have to say, love your fab ottoman, because … I bought two upholstered parson-style chairs from Home Goods in that same exact fabric!! How cool is that?! I liked the fabric so much, I found out who makes it and what it’s called — “Amelia Mulberry” by Richloom (although, the fabric is a little thicker and has more texture than the chairs’ fabric, and the colors are muted just a little). So, if you ever wanted to get a little to make a pillow or something, I know carries it. ^_^ Love the gallery wall. Good job!

  15. I love it, but I don’t think the picture is too high, it looks like you have a high ceiling….. PERFECT the way it is!
