A Softer Look in the Sitting Room ...

Good morning, friends!

When I last shared our sitting room, it looked like this ...

I loved the black and white curtains when I added them last Fall, but, since the warmer months are now upon us (yay!), I decided to soften the look in here just a bit by making a few changes.

The best news is that I didn't have to spend a dime!  We're all about "free decorating" around here!

First, I traded the black and white curtains for beige and white ones in the same pattern.  But, instead of having two panels like before, I decided to hang two more to add to the "softness."  I also added these pillows that were hiding in the storage room.

A faux floral bunch, lantern and orbs dress up our glass coffee table ... 

Of course, I had to add one of my favorite faux plants from IKEA ... they have the best selection that is super reasonable!

Over on our mantel, I gave our mirror a new look with a bit of leftover duck egg chalk paint.

I painted the lamp, too!  Yes, my paint brush got a little unexpected workout.

Soon, I'll give it a coastal look by bringing in more shells, birds and seagrass ...

Now, if I could just actually GO to the coast!  Time for a road trip!

Thanks for visiting!
