A new sofa…..and a few other changes!


It took a while but after a few delays the living room is finally finished. I didn’t make any huge changes, just new drapes and pillows. I also bought a different white sofa because I had planned to use the IKEA one that was in the living room somewhere else.


I love the back of the sofa…..so curvy and very romantic!

The fabric is a white matelasse….


The pillows are a blue check and are

monogrammed in cream with our intital and antlers underneath.

Share Your Style #79

Hi there party goers!! This week your party host is me, Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane, and I am so thrilled to here. Have you been glued to the summer Olympics as I have? Whew wee they have been exciting! I am sure glad the games are only two weeks long cuz the late nights up are leaving me pretty dang tired in the mornings. But hey they only happen every four years so I think I can manage for a few more days.
With that said (or typed) it is on to this week's Share Your Style link party.

Remember when you link up to SYS your are also sharing your amazing creativity on five other blogs...

Last week's party was filled with some incredible inspiration. Here are a few links that really caught my eye..

First up is this beautiful Al fresco Tablescape from the blog Simple Nature Décor.

The next feature is a lovely kitchen renovation from Katie over at her blog Preppy Empty Nester takes Boston.

Peonies and Orange Blossoms is trying to decide on just what type of windows and shutters she would like on her new French inspired Farmhouse.

Pamela, from her new blog BeColorful Coastal, shared with us how she created a pretty coastal bedroom. Love all of her colors!!!

And finally, this last feature not only appealed to my love of dark chocolate but also to the nurse in me. Just 2 Sisters linked up a post on the 6 Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate. Woo hoo!!!

And those are this week's Featured Links!
