A Few Changes


Hey Guys! I have made a few changes to my formal living room and thought I would share them with you. 
I added this iron piece and some ivy to the candle holders. I felt like they needed something and I wanted to pull out the green from the picture.


I bought some ivy garland from Michael's and just wrapped it around the candle holder. I'm still deciding if I like it or not so let me know what you think.


I added some things to the end tables. I made a frame for myself like the one thats in my etsy store. I think its so cute!! :) 

I have had these keys from Pottery Barn for almost a year now and haven't done anything with them so I decided to hang them on my lamp for now until I can think of something to do with them.

I had this monogrammed pillow in the our other living room I like it out here better.


I added another iron piece over the window. I think the room is starting to feel complete. I still need to get an area rug and 
a rug for in front of the door.

I am looking for an accent chair to go here. I really like one I saw at Hobby Lobby its a gold and black zebra print parson chair.


I added this clock by the front door.



Here is another view of the entry way. 




Well that's it for today guys. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Have a great weekend!!! I am linking to Debbie's Newbie Linky Party!

Your living room is just beautiful, Allyson! Very elegant and cozy! I like the ivy...it does accent the picture. And I think the Parsons chair will be perfect for that nook. Love your monogrammed pillow and frame. Now I have to take a peek at your shop!

Happy Thursday!

He was so funny in the yougurt picture. I know all about those messes little boys can make:) Have a great weekend! Ough and love the new blog look!

Very pretty touches, Allyson! Sometimes it's these little things that just bring it all together. I like your keys off the lamp. I did mine on a fabric backed frame but I'm thinking of taking them down. I'm kind of liking the idea of putting ribbon through them and just using them on tables and tabletops throughout the house.

Love it, a little ivy makes all the difference, and I am thinking I need a monogramed pillow!

Your room is very lovely. You seem to have added just the right touches. I snooped around your blog a bit and love the blooming lamp. Also found out you are another Arizonan. We currently live in Yuma, but are planning a move to the Gilbert area. All of our kiddoes (that would be children & grandchildren) are in Scottsdale. Anyway, I am a new follower.
