What I'm Working On

I've been brainstorming ways to make our living room less "boy." My husband was a bachelor before I came along and did a very nice job decorating on his own. He owned a LOT of black. But now I'm in the picture and I need to lighten and glam this place up a bit.

I wanted to share with you a sneak peek of what I'm working on

The mirror I've been lusting over for awhile


And my new friend I added to our mantel 


Next I convinced K to paint our lamps the same color as our mirror

I'm trying to find a space for my mercury candle holders I still can't part with

I want to move that black couch to the basement and buy my dream white couch, but this is a long term goal.

And I NEED couch pillows. 

The couch pillows have given me the biggest headache. I can't decide which color I want and I have searched and shopped and nothing has made me fall in love with a certain pillow. 

Any suggestions for pillows?

Looks great!! And I'm with you-- the couch pillows are my biggest problem too! Right now, I only have the ones that came with the couch, so they're the same color. But I want an accent color-- just don't know which color! Lol

Love that vase! Very feminine.

I love those accents! Our house right now is full of hand-me-downs.. none of which are attractive. (a plaid couch... REALLY?) I love the accent pillows that they have at Target. I'm sure that they aren't too expensive!

I usually love Target's pillows! Try HomeGoods, too!

I love that mirror! As for pillows.. for a white couch, I'd either do red with designs on them (might sound weird, but it doesn't look weird in my head, ha!) or a nice light green would look good too.
