And in the sitting room, we need to go lighter too.
The sitting room has been totally neglected, except for lining the bookshelves with a silvery paisley fabric. I haven't even styled the shelves yet! And the NY bridge photo that was a gift for my husband felt too dark and rectangular for the room. We need curves. After pinning this Martha Stewart starburst mirror twice on Pinterest, I figured it was time to buy it! It was only $35 and it's 30 x 30 inches, available at Home Depot.
I know starburst mirrors are everywhere, but they were nowhere in my home, and I haven't tired of seeing them. I think the mirror is a good size for the space and I like how the star of the mirror breaks up all the straight lines of the TV, windows and frames.
I'm working on replacing the black frames with metallic. I used two $5 frames from WalMart and kept the original mat. I have two more that will go where James' photograph is now. I also need to lower them. (hubby will love more holes in the walls:)
We are getting there.
I'd love to relocate the leather chairs and replace them with something softer . . .
