Livening up the living room

Deadline central over here, but I was able to snap a few pics this weekend of my little fun with pretty peonies. And I know I haven’t really shared pics of my always-in-progress living room yet ~ still playing around and working it out, you know how it goes…

[ Two fave furniture pieces that I’ll never tire of. ]

[ Custom built-ins around the fireplace…I guess we have a lot of books.]

nette: pink peonies on the coffee table

[ Still haven’t found that kick-ass kid-proof coffee table. But at least I love my pillows and rug. ]

Short post today, but I will be back in full swing tomorrow! (Busy is good, can’t complain!)

    Peonies are the perfect accent to everything. I’m finishing up a living room where we have two Barcelonas (black) with a tulip table in between. It’s so great, but missing something. I’m thinking it’s as simple as a couple books and flowers.

    Loving every peek of your space!

      Hi Lily! We got it at Room & Board, but you can find it everywhere, it’s the Saarinen tulip table with white marble top. Of course I wish I could afford the dining table version!
